Midcentury-style Ruark Audio R7 Radiogram now available in the UK

We flagged up the Ruark Audio R7 Radiogram some time back, with a provisional launch date of autumn. Well we've just noticed that it is up for sale on the John Lewis site - but at a price.

Popular in the post-war period, radiograms combined radio and gramophone in one sideboard-like piece of furniture. By the 1970s, the radiogram had fallen out of fashion, in favour of more compact equipment, but the R7 harks back to the stylish models of the 1960s. The R7 unit has DAB, DAB+, FM and internet radio capability alongside a CD player and Wi-Fi connectivity.

I'm slightly disappointed that it doesn't include a turntable, for those of us who still love vinyl, but it does have plenty of auxillary inputs so you can plug one in. The spindle legs shown in this picture are detachable, so you can put the unit on your own sideboard if you prefer.

As we said, the R7 is now available to buy, with John Lewis stocking it on its virtual shelves. If you want one, £2,000 is the price you'll have to pay.
