Personally i think it looks gorgeous. Love the wood finish and the legs.
I might be tempted to buy one as it would look the business in my room.
Great idea, a bit steep in price but yes, I can see those catching on.
My mum bought a Rigonda Bolshoi Stereo Multiplex back in the day (70's) - a superb 'gram' - (such grams sounded good in the day most of them valve driven only to be replaced by the rubbish of the 80's like the Amstrads & sensui etc of that period).
it had a seperate pair of 3way speakers containung an 8inch woofer, 6inch mid driver and tweeter in a cabinate standing about 80cm high, 20cm wide maybe about 20 cm deep - it sounded superb to my young ears genuine hifi back then..
if the price is right they'd make alot more sense than the Docks I've seen and could well produce a far superior sound

Alas, I don't even have room for a coffee table in my living room and I don't think it could replace the sideboard I have my TV on.
Observe the signature in its natural habitat.
Now Chebby, that's not fair. PP has assured us that aesthetically it is now far, far worse now that he has the Naim CDP in place
I think it's nice - simple and elegant. But I do think it has functional issues - personally I don't see how it works as a TV stand - the 2 would contrast horribly, and as a sideboard or console table surely it would be poorly positioned?

Who said it was suppose to double as a TV stand?
Look at it again. Note the width of the CD slot on the front.
If you use that as a rough measure, then it's probably only about 6 times wider than a CD diameter.
Allowing a bit extra (because the CD slot is a tad wider than a CD) then it looks roughly 30 inches wide. It would be absolutely dwarfed by the kinds of television most discussed on these forums.
That is not a 'functional issue' if it's not supposed to be a TV stand.

It's actually a little wider. Dimensions (without legs): H175 × W1000 × D400mm (see this link)
And Ruark on their website seem te suggest the R7 can be used as a TV stand (same link, bottom).
Having said that, I think it's a lovely piece of kit; I wouldn't spoil its looks, putting a TV on top of it...
"Optional TV mount (available 2014)"
Thanks for the link.
@ DocG That picture could also mean you mount the tv on the wall then place the unit under the tv, but it all depends on the weight of the tv for eg a 21" will probably be fine where a 50" plasma will not.
