Made to make you stop and listen – the Ruark R7 brings the radiogram up to date with retro-modern lines and lush audio output. Beneath the vintage sensibilities, there’s everything today’s audiophile would expect, including DAB, FM and internet radio as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, CD playback and intuitive digital controls.
The R7 also comes with spindle legs and puck feet, giving you the option to have it freestanding, or integrate it into your existing AV setup.
Ideal for radio lovers, the R7 features DAB, DAB+ and FM RDS tuners for the best of digital and analogue listening. Built-in internet radio also gives you access to broadcasts from around the globe when the R7 is connected to your home network.
Two 5.5-inch dual concentric stereo drivers and an 8-inch long throw subwoofer combine to provide you with 160W of nominal power output. This covers the whole range from highs and vocals down to the bottom end.
Enjoy your CD collection in its original quality without time-consuming ripping. The slot loading CD player plays CD-Audio and MP3 music disks with total clarity. Adjustable EQ also lets you tune your listening to perfection.
The R7 also features Wi-Fi, so connecting to your home network is fast, reliable and clutter-free. DLNA support means that you can stream audio from other connected devices like tablets and computers.
For devices that don’t network or for when friends are visiting and want to share their music there’s Bluetooth with aptX. This allows you to stream CD quality audio from compatible devices like smartphones within a 10 metre radius.
Something as special as the R7 needs a special remote. The RotoDial radio link remote is built around the contours of the palm. Each button is within easy reach of the fingers, while the rotary volume control nestles under the thumb. As it works by RF communication, it doesn’t need to be aimed either.
The USB charging port helps to keep your devices powered up and ready to go.
A rich walnut veneer cabinet and black lacquer legs make the R7 as much an attractive piece of furniture as an audio system.
