“A truly awesome all-in-one audio solution that can also be turned into a near-perfect TV stand.”

“Overall, the ‘radiogram redefined’ as Ruark describes the R7 is an unqualified success. Fully justifying its premium price tag, it delivers on style, facilities, engineering, build quality, and not least sound quality. Very desirable, I started out really liking it; I ended up absolutely loving it.”
