The Foundation of Music

Bass is the foundation of music.

It is the element that makes you feel the rhythm, the groove, and the emotion of a song.

Bass can make your heart beat faster, your body move, and your mood change.

Whether you listen to rock, pop, hip hop, jazz, or classical music, clean and extended bass adds a new dimension to musical enjoyment and that’s why Ruark developed the RS1.

  • Deep, controlled and musical sound
  • Natural extended bass
  • Elegant design
  • 100 watt Class D amplifier
  • Auto-on/standby feature
  • Compatible with R3S, MR1 and R410

Controlled Delivery

The enjoyment of music is at the core of Ruark’s designs.

RS1 is not about thunderous, overblown bass, but about deep, controlled, and most importantly a musical sound.

To achieve this, the enclosure and custom drivers have been optimised and tuned to deliver natural extended bass, that is fast and rhythmic.

Driving the system is a powerful 100-watt Class D amplifier.

This new generation amplifier keeps firm control of the bass driver at all volume levels with headroom to spare, although soft clipping is built in should the system ever be overloaded to avoid damage.

Setup and adjustment is straightforward and with auto-on/standby, RS1 will automatically turn itself on and off as required.

Developed Through Demand

Their reason for the development of RS1, was due to the demand from customers requesting a companion sub for their award winning MR1 Bluetooth speakers.

They also saw that there was a need for a subwoofer with style.

Where many subs look unattractive in a domestic environment, the tailored grille and hand-crafted wood panels of RS1 means it fits seamlessly with other furnishings, making it a product that customers will be proud to display in their homes.

Ruark Audio

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.
