Ruark Unveils R410: A High-End Speaker for Music Lovers
British audio company Ruark has recently introduced its newest offering, the R410. A high-end speaker designed to optimize high-resolution audio from popular music streaming services such as Spotify Connect, BBC Sounds, Tidal, and Deezer.
An Audio Marvel in the 100 Series Range
The R410 is the inaugural product in Ruark’s 100 series range, a lineup defined by its striking designs and exceptional audio quality. The R410 supports high-resolution music files of up to 24-bit 192kHz for streaming services including Spotify Connect, Tidal Connect, Apple Airplay 2, and Chromecast, all of which are integrated into the speaker.
The R410, however, does not limit its users to streaming services. It also offers DAB/DAB+/FM and Internet radio, aptX HD Bluetooth connectivity, and HDMI with eARC. Additionally, you can connect legacy devices that you may already own, such as top-tier turntables or CD drives.
Aesthetic Design Meets Superior Sound Quality
Just like its predecessors (the Ruark R5 comes to mind), the R410 is not just a speaker, but a piece of art. With a design inspired by nature and the retro aesthetics of the 70s, the R410 is sure to enhance any space it occupies.
The device is powered by a robust new processor, which supports the highest quality audio files and streams. This processor also powers a user interface that accepts commands from the R410’s RotoDial controller and smartphone apps, all displayed on a high-resolution color screen.
Premium Components for an Unmatched Audio Experience
The R410 comes with new bass-mid units, custom 20mm tweeters (the same ones used in the MR1 speakers), and improved digital amplifiers. Like all Ruark products, the R410 comes with a hefty price tag of $1699 / £1,299 / AU$2599. However, considering the excellent sound quality and the style quotient it brings, the price is hardly surprising.
With the launch of the R410, Ruark continues its tradition of delivering high-quality audio products that not only sound great but also enhance the aesthetics of the space they occupy. The integration of various streaming services and support for high-resolution audio files makes the R410 a versatile device for all music lovers. The price might be a bit steep for some, but for true audiophiles who value sound quality and design, the R410 is undoubtedly worth the investment.
