With stunning design and amazing audio quality, a revolutionary music centre combining a classic design with upto date and numerous features.
Why choose R7?
To create the R7’s magnificent sound, Ruark have used the lessons learned from their high end audio background making Ruark loudspeakers. The fine furniture cabinet has been painstakingly tuned and chambered to provide the ideal low colouration housing for our drive units and electronics. For optimal stereo performance we’ve developed new dual concentric drivers with the tweeter mounted centrally in the bass-mid unit. This configuration with bespoke crossovers allows for a wide and smooth frequency response, both on and off axis.
A long throw subwoofer unit has a powerful magnet system and provides clean tuneful bass with remarkable depth and authority. Powering the system are our own high-fidelity Class A-B linear amplifiers with high capacity power supply. The end result is a music system that defies expectation and like radiograms of old we believe that the R7 is a product which you, your family and friends will enjoy for many years to come.
Play all your music
At its centre and crafted from aluminium and glass, is the heart of the R7. With a DAB+/FM/internet radio, the R7 can receive radio stations globally. The high performance CD player, plays standard and MP3 disks and for customers wishing to stream music wirelessly, the R7 features Bluetooth with aptX (for direct streaming from smartphones etc) and DLNA Wi-Fi for streaming from external compatible computers or music servers.
Everyday functions can be controlled from the front panel, but with our new RotoDial 'radio link' remote nestled in your hand, controlling all the R7’s functions is easy, with our high contrast fluorescent display, providing clear visual feedback of input and source information. With RF communication, the new RotoDial remote does not need to be aimed during operation and so can control the R7 whilst sited on a table or even from an adjoining room.
Lots of options
The R7 is undoubtedly a beautiful music system in its own right, but if auxiliary devices such as a TV, DVD player, turntable or even games centre need to be connected, on the rear of the R7 we’ve provided switchable digital and analogue inputs. This extra flexibility means that the R7 can easily become the central sound player for all your home entertainment requirements.
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.
