Ruark have introduced new features to their retro inspired music centre, the R7, which was first introduced in 2013. Ruark say “with eye-catching styling and amazing audio quality, the R7 is a revolutionary music centre in the true spirit of the classic radiogram, designed to reignite people’s passion for music and radio”. The audio enhancements have been achieved through improvements to the linear amplifiers along with changes to the crossovers.
