I think this is probably a modern-era radiogram. But the look of this Ruark Audio R7 MKIII music system is anything but modern.

This is contemporary audio wrapped up in a midcentury package. As you might have guessed, this is the third incarnation of the R7, each one stunning in its own right. But we think the MKIII is the best of the bunch.

The slim body and tapered legs ooze style, but this unit still offers 160W of audio output and all the sound options you could hope for. So DAB/DAB+ and FM radio, internet radio, a CD player, turntable connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Spotify Connect plus plenty of other connections you might need.

Finally, there are hook-ups to fix your TV to it (and use as a sound bar) as well as a rather cool RotoDial remote control. Control via a phone app is also available.

Take your pick from Rich Walnut or Soft Grey lacquer for the finish, both with a price of £2,300. If you can afford that, the Ruark Audio R7 MKIII music system hits stores in October. Expect to find it in John Lewis.
