To create R7’s wonderful sound Ruark used the lessons learned from their long ‘High-End’ audio heritage. As an example the handcrafted furniture grade cabinet has been optimised and tuned with individual chambers to provide a solid low colouration housing for their 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. For such a beautiful piece of equipment they felt it was important to provide a readout display of equal quality. Looking cool and stylish, our custom ultra black high contrast fluorescent display makes reading source information clearly legible, even from afar. For R7 Ruark have developed 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 they'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. Ruark foresee most customers will use R7 on its own as a fully integrated music system, but on the rear they have included 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 they ahve incorporated 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. With their hi-fidelity heritage we understand 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 they’ve 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. specifications DAB, DAB+ and FM Tuner with RDS Ultra black, high contrast fluorescent display Dual aerial inputs allow for separate DAB and FM aerial feeds Comprehensive Internet Radio functionality Slot loading CD player plays CD-Audio and MP3 music disks Full Wi-Fi capability allows wireless networking and music streaming Bluetooth with aptX allows CD quality direct streaming with compatible devices Charge-port for charging smartphones and tablet computers 2 × 5.5” dual concentric stereo drivers 1 × 8” long throw subwoofer driver 160 watts nominal power output Switchable digital and analogue auxiliary inputs.
