We mentioned this was coming your way back in September. A glance at the John Lewis website shows that the Ruark Audio R7 MKIII radiogram is now available to buy.

It really is a thing of beauty too. Rather like the previous incarnations in fact, only this one has had a boost ‘under the bonnet’, as well as a slight design tweak.

Same midcentury modern look of course, which is arguably its biggest selling point, but with a slimmer front panel that previously.

As for the inner workings, it offers 160W of output, DAB/DAB+ FM radio and internet radio, along with a CD player, connectors for a turntable plus Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Spotify Connect for streaming. A 3.5mm auxiliary input and a digital optical port means you can hook up your TV too if you want it as a sound bar.

Finally, there is the stylish RotoDial remote control, although you can control via an app on your phone too.

We are asking Santa for one this Christmas, although it might be something of a big ask at the £2,300 asking price for either of the two finishes.
