Ruark R7 DAB/FM/CD Bluetooth Wireless Integrated Music System, Walnut

Product information

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.

Key benefits:

  • 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

Q & As

Ruark R7 DAB/FM/CD Bluetooth Wireless Integrated Music System, Walnut 5 5 5 5
Best piece of furniture in my house The sound quality is absolutely amazing, and it's so easy to use. No complicated set up required at all. And above all, it just looks ridiculously cool! Outstanding piece of kit. 17 October 2014
Love music, love Ruark R7 If you love your music then you will love the R7. I typically use the Bluetooth connection from my Samsung S5 and the internet radio. The sound quality is excellent. You will end up listening to old favourites all over again because you'll hear the nuances you missed last time! We have a range of musical tastes in the house and it covers all of them equally well - rock, country & pop. The retro look just exudes quality Yes it is expensive but it will take pride of place. 12 July 2014
Now I listen to more music I bought an R7 a few months back ,I loved it the moment I unpacked it, the looks and sound won me over within minutes. But I thought I would wait a while before I wrote a review in case it was just the novelty of a new gadget that was prompting my enthusiasm. Now I have lived with it, I love it more, the music quality that comes from it has resulted in me just switching the TV off so I can listen to my music. Pieces of music I skipped over before I now love. It also works as a very fine speaker for the previously mentioned TV, when I turn it on. 19 April 2014
…then things just got better! Having spent a long time monitoring and listening to a wide range of devices, the R7 has been well worth the wait and every penny spent. Not only does it fulfill my migration to full-digital playlists, being able to either bluetooth or DMR from my NAS server, but I am able to mount my turntable on top and spin the vinyl collection as well! The sound of course (not ever forgetting the stunning look and build quality), remain key to why I purchased a Ruark product in the first place. I listen to a lot of varied music and a wide range of radio. The sound Ruark consistently delivers, out-performs the competition, being well balanced pure and undistorted, even at maximum levels. All this, backed up by Ruark’s outstanding and extremely helful customer support, make the R7 a must-have to satisfy even the most picky audiophiles. The R7 is a top-quality piece of integrated audio equipment, with the looks to match. ® 20 January 2014
Don't be fooled by its looks! One of the problems with retro looking equipment is that they quite often produce retro quality. Not so the case with the R7 from Ruark Audio. Ideally you should have it free-standing as there are vents underneath for the Sub-woofer. Sound quality is extremely impressive even at higher volumes and with a plethora of connections you are not short of options. Looks good and sounds good. 06 January 2014
