Ruark Audio R7: Don Draper Would Have Loved It
July 20th, 2013
There are plenty of audio systems available for your home, but not all of them look as beautiful as this console from Ruark Audio. It’s got lots of retro appeal, and will look awesome in a number of different decors.
The Ruark Audio R7 has a stylish look, that seems to be inspired from some hifi gear from the 1960s. It comes wrapped in walnut veneer and can stand on black lacquer legs. The center console is made from aluminum and glass. It houses a DAB+/FM/Internet radio, CD and MP3 player. Like many newer audio devices, it can stream music wirelessly over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
There’s a removable remote, called a RotoDial, that lets you control the console from anywhere in your home. The console has two drivers, an eight-inch subwoofer, and 160W of power from its class A-B linear amplifiers. It’s also got inputs for auxiliary digital or analog audio sources.
The Ruark Audio R7 will be available this fall for £2,000 (~$3,052 USD).
