Ruark Audio

Inspired by 60s contemporary design, the R7 is Ruark's latest iconic piece. With stunning looks and amazing audio quality, it’s a revolutionary music centre in the true spirit of the classic radiogram, which is guaranteed to reignite your passion for music and radio.

  • Based on the trademark design cues which make Ruark's products instantly recognisable, with R7 they’ve created an object which will enhance your home with its beautiful design. In a recent article the Telegraph Magazine said “the R7 doesn’t blend into the furniture: you’d happily design your entire living room around it”! This is exactly the response Ruark was hoping for, but this is only the beginning, as the true beauty of R7 is revealed with its majestic sound that will have you rediscovering the joy of music and radio all over again.

    The handcrafted furniture grade cabinet has been optimised and tuned with individual chambers to provide a solid low colouration housing for the drive units and electronics.

    At its centre and crafted from aluminium and glass, is the heart of R7. With DAB/DAB+/FM and internet tuners R7 is capable of receiving radio stations globally. The high performance CD player, plays both standard and MP3 disks and for customers wishing to stream wirelessly, R7 also features Bluetooth and DLNA Wi-Fi for streaming music from compatible phones, tablets, computers or NAS music servers.

  • Looking cool and stylish, the custom ultra black high contrast fluorescent display makes reading source information clearly legible, even from afar.

    A new RotoDial 'radio link' remote control which allows all sources and functions to be accessed with ease. With RF communication, this new remote does not need to be aimed during operation (like conventional IR remotes) and so can operate R7 whilst sited on a table or even from an adjoining room. Also for convenience we’ve provided discrete buttons on the front panel of R7, so if the remote is lost or not to hand, then R7 can still be operated and controlled.

    Included on the rear is a switchable analogue and digital inputs so auxiliary devices such as a TV, DVD player, turntable or even a games centre can be connected. This extra flexibility means that R7 can easily become a central sound source for all your audiovisual needs. Also on the rear panel is a USB charge port which will charge most Smartphones and Tablet computers and will also maintain their charge whilst streaming to R7.

    R7 features aptX® audio coding technology that partners with Bluetooth® so compatible devices can stream to R7 with audio quality virtually indistinguishable from a wired connection. An increasing number of computers and handheld devices are now loaded with aptX® as standard, but with or without, sound quality over Bluetooth with R7 is impressive.

    Ruark understands how vital amplifier and loudspeaker design is, when it comes to attaining the best sound quality. Painstakingly developed, R7 features a high capacity power supply coupled to linear Class A-B discrete component amplifiers. With a combined nominal power rating of 160 watts, R7 is a powerful device and sound is reproduced with effortless ease.

    For optimal stereo performance Ruark has developed new dual concentric drivers for R7. These provide a realistic soundstage and allow a wide and smooth frequency response. Enhancing further the performance of R7 is an integrated active subwoofer. Whichever your choice of music, you’ll be amazed at R7’s bass performance that underpins and adds enjoyment to every piece of music played.
