about us

music systems that look great, and sound great

30th anniversary 1986–2016

We are a family-owned British company, passionate about sound and design. At Ruark we’ve been making world-class loudspeaker systems enjoyed by music and audio enthusiasts for over thirty years. Today we’ve applied our knowledge to create a new generation of music systems with wide ranging appeal that look and sound fabulous in any space.

Since launching our first product in 2006 our models have quickly become regarded as the finest available, gaining critical acclaim, including the Sunday Telegraph memorably describing our R1 as ‘the Aston Martin of DAB radios’. Today our products are stocked by leading department stores, quality independent audio retailers and are increasingly found in the bedrooms and suites of distinctive hotels, including the prestigious London Savoy.

For the most pleasure we believe that music and radio should be heard through the best systems; and that quality sound should be available not just to Hi-Fi enthusiasts but to everyone. Whether you’re looking for the best design or the perfect sound, we think you’ll be impressed by what we have to offer. All our products are engineered to last with a timeless design you will cherish and enjoy for years to come.
