AV Forums Recommended Award and T3 2024 Awards Winner

The enjoyment of music is one of life’s greatest pleasures and like the finest instruments, R810 has been designed and crafted to deliver stunning sound that will connect you closer to the music you love.

An Object to Desire

Like the iconic radiograms of yesteryear, R810 is a product that has been designed to be seen. Enhancing R810’s aesthetics is the special material we’ve selected for the handcrafted grille and veneered cabinets. Made from sustainable woods that are spliced and reconstituted, the resulting grain patterns closely resemble slow-growing hardwoods but without the ecological impact. Combined with the precision formed trims and polished chrome stand, R810 radiates sophistication and like the finest furniture, it is an object that you will cherish and be proud to have on display in your home.

A Beautiful Display

Many systems today rely totally on smartphones and suchlike to provide information on settings and source, but with R810 the hi-resolution display provides all the information you need right in front of you and brings the look of R810 to life. With its portrait orientation the display intentionally emulates the way we view music applications on our phones and in conjunction with our new RotoDial controller makes R810 second nature to use. The intensity of the display in standby and active mode is also fully adjustable to suit your needs.

Tactile Controls

With touch-screens seemingly controlling everything these days, in our opinion you still can’t beat the positive click of a button or satisfying turn of a dial, particularly when it comes packaged as something unique and beautiful like our RotoDial control system, which for 100 Series has been improved and enhanced.

Included with R810 is a matching rechargeable remote. Bluetooth connectivity means that aiming is not required during operation and looking so good, it’s an item that you will want to leave out on display for everyone to touch and see.

What Lies Beneath

We’re passionate about aesthetic design, but we know that it’s what lies beneath that is fundamental in creating great sound. An example of this is R810’s enclosure where inside it has been carefully divided into compartments, each which have been optimised for their intended task. Twin bass reflex compartments house our NS+ bass-midrange units and silk dome tweeters and the long throw subwoofer is housed beneath, in an infinite baffle enclosure for superbly controlled and extended bass.

Driving the system is a powerful five channel Class A-B discrete component amplifier. Five separate channels means that we can precisely control the response of each drive unit and with the latest sound processing technologies, music is produced with effortless ease with a stunning soundstage that will immerse you and fill your home with exquisite sound.

Connection Bliss

R810 is a fully integrated entertainment system and provides all the connectivity you are ever likely to need. Streaming is its forte, but if you want to play records and CDs, these mediums can also be enjoyed by connecting a turntable to the phono inputs or a CD-ROM drive to the USB-C socket.

With its ability to play the highest quality audio streams, R810 opens a whole world of music and entertainment. Spotify Connect and TIDAL Connect are built-in and with the addition of Apple AirPlay and Google Cast, you can stream and control directly from apps such as Apple Music, BBC Sounds, Amazon Music, Qobuz and many more. In addition you can also build a flexible multi-room system, linking R810 with other AirPlay and Google Cast compatible devices, including our own R410.

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 R810” 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.

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.
