RUARK UN­VEILS NEW MK3 R7 RA­DIO­GRAM WITH SPO­TIFY CON­NECT

SoundMag - - News - BY Roma Chris­tian

Aus­tralian dis­trib­u­tor, Syn­ergy Au­dio Vis­ual, has to­day re­leased the new Ruark Au­dio Mk3 R7 Ra­dio­gram – a home au­dio sys­tem which mar­ries 1960’s aes­thet­ics with 21st cen­tury tech.

For 2018, the “all-new ver­sion” R7 in­cor­po­rates im­proved ana­logue cir­cuitry, and the lat­est dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies for op­ti­mum stream­ing and multi-room ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

The com­pany claims the Mk3 R7’s old school de­sign makes it a state­ment piece, suit­able for most home decors.

Ruark claims to have drawn upon its thirty year his­tory in “high-fidelity au­dio” to craft the re­vamped R7’s im­pres­sive sound.

Launched in 2013, the R7 is recog­nised as the prod­uct which placed Ruark Au­dio as a “de­sign in­no­va­tor”.

The new Ruark Au­dio Mk3 R7 Ra­dio­gram is avail­able to pur­chase from Syn­ergy Au­dio Vis­ual for $4,299 and comes in ei­ther a ‘Rich Wal­nut’ or ‘Soft Grey’ lac­quer.

The com­pany claims the R7 no longer looks like a “piece of au­dio equip­ment, but rather a beau­ti­ful ob­ject”.

Ruark Au­dio’s Mk3 R7 Ra­dio­gram fea­tures DAB/DAB+/FM and In­ter­net tuners and claims to re­ceive ra­dio sta­tions both with Aus­tralia and world­wide.

A “high per­for­mance” CD player reads stan­dard and MP3 style disks and is ca­pa­ble of mu­sic stream­ing via DLNA Wi-Fi and the lat­est aptX HD Blue­tooth tech­nol­ogy.

The Ruark Au­dio Mk3 R7 has also sports built-in Spo­tify Con­nect.

The de­vice sup­port Ruark’s trade­mark Ro­toDial con­troller, and ex­clu­sively for the Mk3 R7 is mir­rored with a match­ing ‘ra­dio-link’ re­mote. This spe­cial re­mote can con­trol the R7 front any room, with­out need­ing to be aimed at the de­vice.

A ded­i­cated con­trol and brows­ing app, LINK, will soon be com­ing for iOS and An­droid de­vices.

Ruark’s op­tional TV mount claims to con­vert the R7 into an even more stylish home en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem.
