Ruark Audio R7 Mk3 High Fidelity Radiogram

With honed aesthetics and enhancements to sound and technology, the Ruark Audio R7 Mk3 is a wonderful ground-breaking sound system that will satisfy music lovers and design aficionados alike.

Designed For Sound

Our audio heritage has enabled us to understand the synergy of cabinet, amplifier and drive unit design in creating beautiful sound. An example of this is R7‘s hand crafted enclosure which we have tuned to provide optimal conditions for the drive units and electronics. Furthermore we have designed bespoke stereo speaker units where the high and low frequency components are combined into a single point source driver. These provide an extended natural frequency response, with a lifelike soundstage to immerse you in stunning sound.

Beautiful To Control

Our RotoDial controller sited on top of R7 provides a slick control system which is intuitive and easy to use. Exclusively for R7 Mk3 we have designed a matching remote control which mirrors in form and function exactly the main controller. Sited on a table or sitting in your hand the R7 remote is an ergonomic delight and with superior radio communication it does not need to be aimed during operation as is usual with conventional infrared remote controls. Also coming soon we have a dedicated app for iOS and Android devices called Ruark Link. This allows full control of R7 functions and also displays information on the source material being played.

A Complete AV Solution

With the addition of our Audio Visual Mount, R7 is transformed from a music system into a striking audio/visual solution! Designed exclusively for R7, TVs and associated equipment can be integrated with R7 to make an awesome ‘all-in-one’ system that will be the centre piece for all your home entertainment needs, providing sound quality that will make television and films all the more captivating and enjoyable.

Multi-Format CD Player

For the finest sound quality, CD is still one of the best ways to experience music and R7 Mk3 features a high specification slot loading player that will make your CD collection sound better than ever. Alongside standard CDs, R7 will also play self-made CDs encoded with popular audio formats such as WAV, MP3 and AAC and also displays track and artist information when this data is available on the disc.

A World Of Radio

With its quality DAB, DAB+ and FM tuners, R7 provides easy access to radio broadcasts nation-wide and with its internet tuner, you can connect with over 30,000 stations worldwide. If you’re living away from home, with internet radio you can stay connected with your favourite shows from home and if you love Country or Jazz music then you can search by musical genre worldwide to find stations that specialise in the type of music you love. R7 also allows you to access radio podcasts and catch-up services, notably programmes from the BBC, so you can listen at your leisure.

Great Connectivity

R7 has switchable analogue and digital inputs allowing auxiliary devices such as Amazon Dot and Google Home to be easily connected and with the resurgence of vinyl we have also included a dedicated turntable input with a quality moving magnet phono stage built in. Also featured is a multi-purpose USB socket which allows you to conveniently charge your smartphones and also playback music stored on a memory stick or portable hard drive. Furthermore, all these inputs are multi-room enabled and if desired can be streamed wirelessly to our R2 Mk3 and new MRx models.

Spotify Connect Built In

R7 Mk3 has Spotify the world’s leading music streaming service built in and with a Spotify Premium account you can select R7 as your playback device and then control the music using R7’s RotoDial, remote control or our soon to be released Ruark LINK app for Apple and Android devices. With a vast library of over 20 million tracks, Spotify Premium and R7 will allow you to discover new music and enjoy old favourites with sound that will transform your listening experience.

Ethernet Connection

R7 has been designed for wireless connectivity, but also we’ve included an ethernet connector so R7 can be wired to a network if required. A wired ethernet connection ensures reliability in playback and can be useful if you want to use R7 where the wi-fi signal from your home router is variable or weak. In this case, ethernet powerline adaptors can be used and these provide a reliable solution to resolve network problems.

Multi-Room Ready

Alone R7 Mk3 is an outstanding music system, but with its ‘multi-room’ capabilities you can wirelessly link and sync it with one or more of our R2 Mk3 and new MRx so you can distribute music all around your home. Every source and input on R7 can be multi-roomed including the turntable input, making R7 the perfect hub for your entertainment needs. Set-up and control of multi-room can be performed directly on R7, but also coming soon is a dedicated app for iOS and Android devices called Ruark LINK. This allows control of each device in the multi-room group, so volume etc. can be balanced to your liking.

High Definition Bluetooth

R7 Mk3 features the very latest aptX HD audio technology which partners with Bluetooth so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to R7 in perfect high definition sound that is indistinguishable from a wired connection. Bluetooth’s ease of use has made it the foremost method for audio streaming and it works with virtually all leading Apps including Spotify, Apple Music and BBC iPlayer Radio. Most importantly sound quality over Bluetooth with R7 is simply outstanding.

Power And Grace

The electronics inside Ruark Audio R7 Mk3 have been painstakingly developed to provide the best possible sound. With audio grade components used throughout, R7 features a high capacity linear power supply coupled to a 2.1 channel Class A-B discrete component amplifier. With a nominal rating of 160 watts, R7 is a powerful device and sound is reproduced with effortless ease. Enhancing further the performance of R7 is an integrated active subwoofer that underpins and adds authority and enjoyment to every piece of music played.

About Ruark Audio

Formed in 1985 by Brian and Alan, they used their savings to rent a small unit on a private industrial estate in Rayleigh, Essex, as a workshop to develop and manufacture their first loudspeaker systems. Many hours are spent evolving the sound for which Ruark would ultimately become highly regarded by enthusiasts.

After 14 months development, Alan and Brian launch their first loudspeaker systems called Sabre and Broadsword. With beautiful cabinet work and advance drive unit technology, these systems are soon noticed by the Hi-Fi press and receive critical acclaim.

Ruark initially made speakers until 2004 when they moved in a new direction. With the audio market in turmoil, Alan decides that it would be a good idea to start looking at other avenues. With the growing popularity of DAB in the UK, Alan was looking for a radio for his own use. It appeared that whilst sound quality was important for hi-fi, in radios the sound was often very poor. Seeing a gap in the market a decision was made to start work on developing a high-quality digital radio.

In November 2006, Ruark launch our first tabletop radio to critical acclaim, with the Sunday Telegraph calling it ‘The Aston Martin of DAB radios’. It is decided that they will sell and market the R1 under a different brand-name (Vita Audio), in order to avoid confusion with their loudspeakers. In retrospect, this proves to be a decision that causes quite a bit of confusion with customers and dealers alike.
