”Beautiful modern furniture married to one of the most versatile music systems around. Just sublime.” ‘Trusted Reviews’ – 5-Star review

Sound with style

Combining the best of retro style with modern technology, the Ruark R7 MK3 is totally unique. Unlike most one-in-one systems, the R7 MK3 is self-supporting, with its legs not only giving it the presence of a piece of stylish furniture but also raising the speakers to the perfect height for listening pleasure.

Luxurious wood and lacquer finishes
Ruark have a long held reputation for producing some of the finest wood-finished speakers and the R7 MK3 is no exception. Using real wood veneers and soft lacquer finishes, immaculately wrapped around a curved cabinet, the R7 MK3 is as good to look at as it sounds. Contrasting satin black (with walnut finish) or natural cherry (with grey finish) spindle legs are also supplied, although these can be changed for puck feet if you’d prefer to position the system on a shelf or cabinet.

Room-filling sound
The R7 MK3 is the largest R-Series Ruark speaker system and this gives it a powerful and enveloping sound. Featuring a 160 watt amplifier, the R7 MK3 has enough power for larger rooms and is easily capable of matching most conventional separate systems for sheer volume of sound. Augmenting the stereo speakers, a built-in subwoofer gives a deep bass that firmly underpins all types of music.

All connections – covered
Within this sleek console, masses of music options are catered for. Streaming via Spotify Connect (with Premium account), Amazon Music, Deezer and Tidal are all on hand. The wi-fi and Ethernet connection also streams Internet radio. If you’d prefer, there’s DAB/FM radio and a quality CD player. An HD Bluetooth connection lets you stream music from your smartphone or tablet or, if you prefer a wired connection there’s also a USB interface. With digital and analogue inputs, it’s also easy to connect a wide range of other sources, including TV and turntable.

A built-in phono pre-amp means you can also wire up your (MM) turntable. Another two line level sources let you connect other sources, such as a voice-controlled device. With the USB socket, you can playback music on your smartphone while simultaneously charging it. Line level and headphone outputs are also standard.

Alarm and remote
With a built-in alarm, the R7 Mk3 makes a top quality bedroom system. The easily programmed dual alarm comes with a wide range of features, including once, daily, weekday and weekend settings plus snooze and sleep timers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ruark at it's best! Suburb Sound and Build I recently purchased the R7 (Lounge) to compliment my R5 (Bedroom) and my MRx (Front Room). The sound quality and build of this product is simply suburb. I love the Multiroom Feature where I have all 3 sound devices synced, the entire house is filled with Ruark sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audio fun for the whole family Buying the R7 was an act of faith after good experience with the R5, and it has delivered for the whole family during lockdown. The R7 plays my soul/ pop oldies, my daughter's more jazz interests and my son's rap music with great poise and has never been lacking in volume either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic system We have had this radiogram for two years we have had hours of enjoyment from it, both from the radio and CDs. The sound quality is extraordinary. It is as if the orchestra or grand piano is in the room beside you. Yes, it is quite expensive but worth every penny. If you are hesitant about buying the system don't be. Place your order now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Sublime. That’s all that needs saying about the R7. I have other Ruark products and know the high quality is a given, but the R7 is truly stunning in appearance, sound and functionality. It’s an investment piece that will bring years of pleasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Product Stepped into a London audio shop because we wanted to see the bicycle that was parked inside and immediately were drawn to the R7 on display. The design was captivating and the sound was excellent. Flew home to the USA the next morning but couldn’t resist emailing the store owner and having him ship the unit over to us. It arrived quickly and we set it up the day it arrived. It has changed our lives quite literally. My wife decided to redesign our entire living space to highlight the R7, which turned out to be one of the best side benefits of owning the R7. She no longer cringes when trying to play music like she did with our prior Yamaha system. The controls of the R7 are excellent and I don’t know how I lived without that round little remote - it is brilliant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant ! I recently bought an R7 in grey finish to replace my seperates and floorstanders. I was slightly apprehensive as to how it would compare with my previous system as it was a tall order to have the same sound quality ,or even close to that of my old conventional set up. However as I own an R2 MK3 and was extremely impressed by that, I decided to take the plunge. I am extremely glad I did. The sound from the R7 is absolutely phenomenal for an all in one system. Easily on a par with my old set up which is astonishing . Features are brilliant and it enables me to play my CD's as well as my Spotify . Internet radio is brilliant as we are in a bit of a poor signal area for DAB. Sound quality and features aside, the R7 looks fantastic. A real talking point when friends visit. I had a tiny cosmetic issue when it arrived but Ruark sorted this out very quickly and efficiently. Fantastic customer service. If you're contemplating buying an R7 then just do it. You wont regret it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just beautiful I bought this stereo a month ago, I love everything about it! The product is easy to use (for someone who isn’t at all technical) it connects to my phone easily without messing about! It easily finds radio stations and the design of the product is just beautiful. I haven’t yet connected it to other music devices but will do and hope that’s as easy as using the product so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than the reviews Bought this via an audio shop in Fortitude Valley Brisbane. This stereo, if it can be called that is both a work of art to view and a joy to listen to. All your favourite cds or whatever are new again when listening to this, there's simply parts to all your tunes that you have never heard before. The radio is like nothing youve heard. The cabinet is unique and beautifully made, you can see a whole lot of thought and love has gone into its creation. It is definitely worth the money and the remote is something else, truly unique. This one is a keeper that will be in the will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product. We have got so much more out of this than we ever expected. We had a demonstration in our local hi-fi shop so knew that the sound was amazing but we didn't realise that we would use the internet radio function so much. We listen to it every day and yes, it is expensive but it really is worth it. It's also a beautiful piece of furniture. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely piece I bought it in feb / and I love it - you have so many options for using - for dir in handling - just 10 presets in radio and the Menue for Amazon is pretty slow - hope this can be improved - but it’s not an issue just using Bluetooth connection

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool Style, Excellent Performance We saw the Ruark R7 first in Dacombes, whilst walking in Wimborne. The next week we called in to hear thee sound: we decided there and then to buy an R7. The visual style is beautifully executed and the sound truly fills our living room. The hidden sub-woofer can be adjusted to provide outstanding depth to music. Connectivity has enabled us to access a far wider range of music and, using the optical connection, we now enjoy cinema sound from out TV. The provision of identical built-in and mobile control devices mean that we can adjust from where we are or at the R7. The operation seems to us to be perfectly intuitive and scrolling menus takes seconds. We are truly delighted with every aspect of the R7 and we look forward to many years of listening to clear, perfect sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds as good as it looks I already loved Ruark products, having R1s, MR1s and an R2 around my living spaces. The R7 is the flagship and it is a cut above these already excellent products. The Ruark house style of rich warmth and musical clarity is all there but there is a depth and an 'authority' to the sound you only get in the R7. It's debatable whether the sound enhancements 'Loudness' and '3D' are better on or off but after some experimentation I've concluded 'it depends'. Loudness as the name implies adds a bit of body to the sound at low volumes but at mid to high volumes the sound can turn a little unnatural. For example with a piano the sound becomes so crystalline and brightly lit it takes on a little of the hue of a harpsichord, and violins can sound a little reedy. Turned off at those higher volumes, balance is restored. 3D I like on all the time personally, giving a richer room filling sound stage. There is excellent instrument/part separation and I also find dynamic range is wider than on my other Ruark products, so, when starting a quiet track and then turning it up, a later louder passage is louder than expected, but in a good way: this is how it was meant so sound. There is a good multi room feature but it's not perfect; I have my R7 in the bedroom and use the R7's extremely useful line out feature to connect wired MR1s in the lounge as well as the multi room feature to connect an R2 in the kitchen. This is easier to operate via the Ruark Link app than on the button menu of either the R7 or the R2 but the app isn't without its problems. Sometimes the two devices just seem to get confused as to which is doing what, but this may well be user error and an app update with redesigned multi room would probably make it easier. When it does work, which is most of the time, it is absolutely on beat with no echo between devices, which you can't say about Apply Airplay for example. There is a plethora of connectivity options; as well as the built in internet radio and CD function, I'm using the optical input to provide a speaker for my LG TV, to which an Apple TV and Oppo Blu Ray player are connected. The combination looks and sounds fantastic. I've also got an Airport Express hooked up to a line in to play my iTunes library as an alternative to beaming the same library from my phone using the app's inbuilt 'Local Music' source option. I don't use bluetooth or Spotify so can't comment on these but the sources I do use have mostly been perfect; only third party apps like Glider seem to struggle to play as DNLA servers, but that may be Glider rather than all DNLAs. In sum it looks great (if you like the Ruark aesthetic, which I do) and the sound is just effortlessly pleasurable and has made me hear a lot of my music with fresh ears. Yes, it's substantially more expensive than even the next most expensive Ruark product but if you like the look and sound of Ruark and appreciate the R7's immense functionality it's a step up well worth making.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scandinavian furniture meets real hifi Having owned & enjoyed the smaller R4 for years I decided it was time to check out the top end R7mk3. The soft grey finish on light oak legs looks stunning. A real focal point in my lounge, it has drawn many approving comments. The range of ways you can play music make this without doubt one of the most versatile systems available. The sound has real depth thanks to the adjustable sub woofer mounted out of sight underneath. There is real clarity & great timing from an all in one unit & a warmth that I find beguiling even at low listening levels. Obviously it can’t match the stereo separation of a hifi set up but honestly, for a plug & play system offering this quality from so many sources I am happy to make that small sacrifice. I have spent a fortune on hifi separates over the years trying to find the holy grail of audio, but really, it’s become tiresome constantly looking for that extra few percent of performance not to mention taking over a whole room with precisely positioned speakers & room treatments. I am quite happy now to leave that world behind & just enjoy the music from this beautiful system. Cannot recommend highly enough & if the reliability of my R4 is anything to go by I am confident the R7 will continue to play sweet music for many years to come. Thankyou Ruark for an amazing product that had changed my musical life..
