    This is a complete Ruark Vita 100 5.1 home cinema setup complete with the Vita 100 sub-woofer.

    I bought this back in 2002 when I last moved home, but having moved again I am taking the opportunity to upgrade my system. I'll be sorry to see these go as they have given me great service over the years

    In it's day, the Ruark Vita series were award winners and partly the reason I bought it. It still produces a great sound today.

    Cosmetically, there are some slight marks on various items but nothing that will detract. I no longer have the wall mounting brackets as I have had the speakers stand mounted since day 1.

    Component dimensions as follows:

    Speakers (without grill) - 20cm (h), 14cm (d), 11cm (w)
    Mid speaker (without grill) - 16cm (h), 11cm (d), 32cm (w)
    Sub - 42cm (h) 30cm (w), 30cm (d)

    I'll also include some QED Silver Anniversary cables (with banana plugs) that connected the speakers to the in-wall cable setup (same QED cable).

    £150 for the complete setup and with price for shipping via Parcelmonkey or similar to be agreed as the sub weight will add some to the shipping cost. Happy for local collection in East Sussex at no cost.

    Price and currency: £150
    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
    Payment method: Paypal
    Location: Icklesham (near Hastings)
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    Don't know if these are still available?
    I have a set of these myself with the Vita 200 sub, might be interested in these to make up a 7.2 in another room. Can you confirm the condition of the drivers, as it looks like the one in the picture is quite badly damaged, also what state are the grilles, as in my experience these can split along the bend, final question, what speaker connectors do these have 3 x Phono or the XLR connectors ? EDIT Ignore the connector question, having re-read your ad i assume they are the Phono connectors seeing as you mention speaker cable and banana plugs.

    hi there

    yes, they are still available and if I don't sell here today, they will go on fleabay.

    2 of the speakers do have finger dents in the drivers (both in one, one in another) which was due to my poor handling when I packed them to move - :devil: - but that hasn't affected their performance and generally they are in great condition and look almost new. the grilles are in A1 condition - no damage at all with no splits. and the cables have phono plugs as you have seen.

    look forward to your reply

    PS- if you're interested, I also have stands for these (2 Atacamas with spikes, and 2 B-tech Hi-logic Plus with rear speaker connectors). all told they weigh a bloody load so would need to be collected!!

    Do you have the original packaging for these as collection wouldn't be possible ?

    Hi - I don't have original packing for the Ruarks, but am happy to ship as I have suitable heavy duty packing left over from the house move. The sub will be the major cost due to it's weight.

    The B-tech speaker stands would need to be at an additional cost - say £20? - and I could ship them with the Ruarks as they break down.

    If interested, I'll price up some shipping costs for all the above.

    I wouldn't ship the Atacamas as they are far too bulky and heavy so I will sell them locally.

    I'm interested, but only in the speakers and possibly the speaker cable, if you could price up shipping costs to: DT11 7QQ I'll have a think about it depending on overall cost.

    Thanks, the most i'd be prepared to go to would be £130 incl of postage, i appreciate it's not what you were looking for, but this is a bit of an experiment, i don't really need them, so no offence if you decide to risk your chances on the bay.

    no problem, no offence at all.

    I'll stick them on fleabay and see what happens - I may well come back to you if that's OK!

    Yes that'll be fine, it's a bit of an impulse purchase for me as i already have a set in the same colour, but wouldn't mind adding a couple of extra speakers to that set up and seeing what i can do with it.
    Good luck on fleabay, i'll maybe have a look out for them there, problem i found with these when i tentatively offered my set for sale, was that hardly anybody seems to have heard of them or be aware of just how good they are. They were certainly a top notch set up in their day and knocked spots off the Kef eggs that were all the rage back then.
