Ruark’s updated R7 keeps its original mid-century style, with walnut veneer and aluminium construction, while packing in the playback options. Take your pick from wireless multi-room streaming, hi-res bluetooth aptX and DAB+ as well as a quaint front-loading CD-player. With two dual concentric stereo drivers, a long throw subwoofer and a combined 160 watt power output the R7’s performance elevates it well beyond gramophone status.
