Ruark R7 HiFi System with Bluetooth®

To create the R7’s magnificent sound Ruark have used the lessons learned from their long ‘High-End’ audio background. For optimal stereo performance they've developed new dual concentric drivers with the tweeter mounted centrally in the bass-mid unit. This configuration with bespoke crossovers allows for a wide and smooth frequency response, both on and off axis. The R7 also features Bluetooth® with aptX™ (for direct streaming from smartphones etc.) and DLNA® Wi-Fi® for streaming from external compatible computers or music servers.
