The Want List: R7 High Fidelity Radiogram

Posted on July 21, 2013

A gentleman can dream.  Here’s what is currently captivating us at G@H.

Fifty years ago, stereos were large and heavy, so manufacturers designed consoles to house them. Styled right, these consoles served as prized furniture. Innovation, however, shrank electronics. Semiconductors replaced vacuum tubes. And, the once revered stereo console, well, it vanished.

Good ideas never die, though. They hibernate. Eventually, the beast reawakens and emerges from its cave. The trend returns. With the R7 High Fidelity Radiogram by Ruark Audio, your stereo can decorate the room while simultaneously shaking it. Its spindle legs and walnut veneer cabinet radiate a mid-century modern vibe. Yet, it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability. In addition to CDs and traditional radio, it plays MP3s and internet radio.

The R7’s clean, vintage design blended with the fruits of modern technology titillates us greatly.
