Ruark’s beautiful new R410 integrated music system, built for streaming, is due to arrive in NZ this October.

The first product in Ruark’s 100 series range, the 1970s-styled R410 is a product that’s designed to be seen as well as heard, says the company blurb.

“From the hand-crafted grille and cabinet to the precision-formed components, only the finest quality materials have been used,” says the bumpf. “The cabinet and grille are engineered from sustainable woods that are expertly spliced, coloured and recomposed, the resulting eco-friendly material closely resembling slow-growing hardwoods.”

Built for streaming, with the R410 you can connect and enjoy old-fashioned sources like turntables and CD drives, but to take full advantage of streaming technology, it features built-in Apple AirPlay and Google Chromecast, as well as Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect.

Additionally, it features aptX HD, UPnP DLNA Media Server (allowing you to connect with other streaming music services), DAB/DAB+/FM and internet radio, as well as HDMI ARC and eARC (making this a superb sound system for TVs).

“We’ve painstakingly tuned the reflex 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 the R410’s size. Together with the latest generation digital amplification, audiophile-grade components and the best audio processing technologies, R410 creates a magical performance that will connect you closer to the music you love.”

Ruark products have featured their gorgeous and highly functional RotoDial controls since 2006, but for this series, the company has refined its design from top to bottom and included a matching rechargeable remote.

Highly intuitive to use, the R410 also features a slick user interface with a full-colour high-resolution display and a portrait orientation just like smartphones use. Retail price is expected to be $2899.
