Designed to Be Seen

With exquisite attention to detail and a modern take on seventies styling, R410 is a product that’s designed to be seen. From the hand-crafted grille and cabinet to the precision-formed components, only the finest quality materials have been used.

Further enhancing R410’s stunning aesthetics is the material that we’ve selected for the grille and enclosure. Engineered from sustainable woods that are expertly spliced and recomposed, the resulting material closely resembles slow-growing hardwoods, but with true ecological credentials.

Engineered to Be Heard

Our audio heritage means we understand the complexities of cabinet, electronic and driver design in creating sound that will touch your soul. In R410 we’ve painstakingly tuned the enclosures to house our new NS+ bass-mid units and combined with the tweeters from our award-winning MR1 speakers, the result is effortless performance that belies R410’s size. Together with the latest digital amplification, audiophile-grade components and the best audio processing technologies, R410 creates a magical performance, that will have you discovering again your favourite artists and the delight that music and sound can bring.

Hi-Res Connectivity and CD support

R410 provides all the connectivity you are ever likely to need. Streaming is its speciality, but if you want to play LPs or CDs, these can still be enjoyed by connecting a turntable to the phono inputs or a CD-ROM drive to the USB-C socket. Additionally with its HDMI ARC/eARC input, you can connect most modern TVs to R410, with its expansive sound making watching TV a wholly enjoyable experience.

Able to play the highest quality audio streams, R410 brings a new level of insight and pleasure to music. Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect are built-in and with the addition of Apple AirPlay and Google Cast, you can stream directly from apps such as Apple Music, BBC Sounds, Amazon Music, Qobuz with better than CD sound and for radio lovers, R410s Internet Tuner provides swift access to an amazing array of stations worldwide. Finally with R410, you can also easily build a flexible multi-room system, linking it with other AirPlay and Google Cast speakers, including another R410 or our flagship R810.

Beautiful to Control

Our RotoDial control system has been a distinctive part of Ruark products since the introduction of our R1 in 2006, but for 100 Series we have refined its design from top to bottom. Also included with R410 is a matching rechargeable remote. Bluetooth connectivity means that aiming is not required – and like a quality watch, it’s an item that you will love to use, as it looks and feels so good.

Beautiful to See

R410’s advanced processor has allowed us to provide a slick user interface, handling input from apps and our control system and promptly displaying the interaction on R410’s colour high-resolution display. The portrait orientation of the display intentionally emulates the way that we view most services on our smartphones, making R410 intuitive to use, but most importantly the display brings an interactive element to R410 that few other systems offer.

‘…R410 has been designed for streaming and making the most of the amazing music and radio services available online’

Google Cast Google Cast

Google Cast is a wireless technology developed by Google. It is primarily used in Android devices but also works with many iOS apps.

With Google Cast you can stream music directly over Wi-Fi to R410 and R810 from apps such as Amazon Music and BBC Sounds in high-resolution sound quality.

Also with a Google Nest Hub or smart speaker, you can control playback with your voice. Setting up requires the Google Home app, but once done you can simply say “Hey Google, play BBC Radio 3 on my R410” or suchlike and the system will respond as instructed.

Spotify Connect Spotify Connect

Spotify Connect (currently the world’s most popular streaming platform) allows you to stream music over Wi-Fi to R410 and R810. Unlike Bluetooth, it does not drain battery power, because the Connect service pushes music directly from the Spotify cloud to R410 and R810 rather than playing through your device. This means that you can take calls and messages without interruption or even switch off your device completely.

Tidal Connect Tidal Connect

TIDAL Connect is a high-resolution music streaming service that allows you to stream music over Wi-Fi to R410 and R810. Unlike Bluetooth, it does not drain battery power, because the TIDAL Connect service pushes music directly from the TIDAL cloud to R410 and R810 rather than playing through your device. This means that you can take calls and messages without interruption or even switch off your device completely.

Apple Music Apple Music

Apple Music is Apple’s own music streaming service. Subscribe to Apple Music and you have access to over 100 million songs which you can stream wirelessly to R410 and R810 using Apple AirPlay for the best possible sound quality.

Amazon Music Amazon Music

If you are an Amazon Music user you can browse and control your playback and adjust volume directly from within the Amazon Music app to our R410 and R810 models using either Apple AirPlay or Google Cast

The choice of Internet radio stations is vast and in general, the sound quality is better than that of DAB or FM. Have fun browsing, national and international stations and save your favourites as presets for easy access using 100 Series’ intuitive RotoDial controller or remote.

DAB/DAB+ radio DAB/DAB+ radio

Internet radio is rapidly becoming the choice for most radio listening, as an aerial is not required, but DAB/DAB+ is easy to use and offers a greater selection of stations than FM.

FM radio FM radio

FM radio is still a great way to listen to radio as it exhibits a natural analogue warmth that is missing in low-bitrate DAB radio. In particular, it works well with spoken word and classical music, but a good quality external aerial is highly recommended for best sound and reception.

Bluetooth Bluetooth HD

With a super high-quality aptX Bluetooth receiver built-in, it means you can wirelessly stream music from your smartphone or computer to R410 and R810 with better-than-CD sound quality without the need for a Wi-Fi connection. Both R410 and R810 remember up to eight previously connected devices, making it easy to switch and connect as required. Ideal in a busy family environment.

Wi-Fi Wi-Fi

Both R410 and R810 are 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz compatible so they will wirelessly connect and communicate with the latest dual-band home Wi-Fi routers.

Ethernet Ethernet

The ethernet connector on the rear of R410 and R810 allows you to create a hardwired connection to your home network, allowing optimum performance when weak Wi-Fi strength and conflicts are an issue. Ideal to use with powerline adaptors.

HDMI HDMI

With HDMI ARC/eARC connectivity, both R410 and R810 make a superb sound system for TVs and a complete solution for your entertainment needs. HDMI ARC syncs both R410 and R810 with your TV, so you can use your TV remote to adjust volume as well as turn on or off.

Optical input Optical input

The switchable optical input allows you to easily connect devices such as CD players or external streamers with optical outputs for optimum sound quality.

Phono Input Phono input

Both R410 and R810 feature two sets of switchable RCA connectors.

The Phono-In input is a dedicated turntable input which has RIAA phono gain stage built-in allowing a turntable with a moving magnet cartridge to be directly connected without the need for a separate preamplifier.

The Line-In input allows you to connect a variety of auxiliary devices with line-level outputs such as a standard CD player or gaming console.

Subwoofer output Subwoofer output

R410 delivers remarkable bass for its size, but if you require even greater bass performance an active subwoofer can be easily connected to R410’s subwoofer output. Our own RS1 Subwoofer is ideal for this task.

CD via USB CD via USB

Playing CDs is easy to do, simply by connecting a USB CD drive to the USB-C socket on the rear of R410 and R810. When connected, CD is automatically added to the list of sources and then using the RotoDial controller you can control CD playback just as you would a built-in player, with functions such as play/pause, skip, shuffle and repeat all available.
