A history of Ruark
From our humble beginnings in 1985, we can’t believe how the years have flown by and how much has happened. We couldn’t possibly show everything, but here is a brief history of products and events along the way and as in the beginning we are still equally passionate and excited as to what the future years will bring.
Based on the South East Coast of England we are a family-owned company with an amazing passionate team.
My love of music and sound came from my Father who worked within the British audio industry during the 60s and 70s, before we formed Ruark Acoustics together in 1985. In the beginning we made loudspeaker systems for audio enthusiasts, but since 2006 we’ve applied our skills to create radios and music systems with wide ranging appeal that look and sound fabulous in any space.
For our products we have three key objectives…
Our mission is to design products that appeal to the heart as much as the head. Products that we ourselves would be proud to own.
Our aim is to create design icons of the future! Clean lines and proportions allied to special features such as our RotoDial control system make our products unique and instantly recognisable.
Performance & Functionality
Our goal is for class-leading performance, intuitive operation and functions that are really beneficial, rather than frivolous features that may seldom be used.
Since launch, our models have become regarded as the finest available, gaining critical acclaim, including the Sunday Telegraph memorably describing our first generation R1 as ‘the Aston Martin of DAB radios’. This statement concisely describes our company ethos.
Whether you’re looking for beautiful design or perfect sound, we think you’ll be impressed by what we have to offer. Also we pride ourselves on our customer service, so should you have a question or need assistance, we will always do our utmost to help.
