“As a boy I can vividly remember listening to my grandmother’s much loved radiogram”

Back then radiograms were crafted as fine furniture as well as a source of entertainment and my grandmother’s unit was a prime example that took pride of place in her front room. I’m sure that it was this unit’s beautiful sound that nurtured my interest in audio, but moreover music has been my enduring passion and it was this passion that led to my father and I forming Ruark Acoustics in 1985 with the aim to design and produce hi-fidelity loudspeaker systems for audio enthusiasts.

Almost 30 years on, our passion continues, except in 2004 with a changing market we made a radical decision to diversify from our speaker heritage and apply our skills to design a range of quality compact audio systems. Since launching in 2006 our models have quickly become regarded as the finest available with the Sunday Telegraph memorably describing our R1 as “the Aston Martin of DAB radios”, but beyond these products I‘ve long held a desire to create a product that pays homage to the radiograms of the past but with design and technology that brings the ideology completely up to date!

Taking over three years to develop, R7 is the realisation of this dream! R7 is totally new and totally unique, but like my grandmother’s radiogram we believe we’ve created a special product that will be treasured by a new generation for years to come.

the radiogram redefined

At Ruark Audio we are driven to design products that customers will love to use and cherish. Inspired by 60s contemporary design, the R7 is our latest iconic piece. With stunning looks and amazing audio quality, it’s a revolutionary music centre in the true spirit of the classic radiogram, which we guarantee will reignite your passion for music and radio.

Based on the trademark design cues which make our products instantly recognisable, with R7 we’ve created an object which will enhance your life and home! In a recent article the Telegraph Magazine said said “the R7 doesn’t blend into the furniture: you’d happily design your entire living room around it”! This is exactly the response we were anticipating, but for us this is only the beginning, as the true beauty of R7 is revealed in its majestic sound that will have you rediscovering the joys of your music collection and radio all over again.

would you like to own R7?

As our flagship product, R7 is only available through a select number of our 'Gold Star' stockists, although we will be adding further dealers as our production capacity grows.

Due to demand, it is likely that some dealers may advise that there is a small waiting list. If this is the case, rest assured we will endeavour to supply as soon as possible, however to own R7 we think you’ll agree that the wait is worthwhile.
