Leading British audio manufacturer Ruark Audio selects Nordic Semiconductor RF technology for the remote control in its retro-styled R7 music center.

NS_R7_PRINTUltra low power (ULP) RF specialist Nordic Semiconductor ASA today announces that a leading British audio product manufacturer, Ruark Audio, has specified a pair of Nordic nRF24LE1 2.4GHz System-on-Chip (SoC) transceivers for the RF remote control in its forthcoming retro-styled R7 music center, due for launch this fall.

Ruark Audio’s existing high quality, small form factor product range have been repeatedly voted class-leaders by some of the world’s leading consumer audio magazines, such as What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision?, and the higher-end R7 music center has received according to Ruark a record number of pre-launch registration enquiries from customers eager not to miss one of the first production-run units when they become available later this year.

The forthcoming flagship R7 music center is said to have taken three years to develop and was inspired by the design of 1960s radiograms that were music centers built into high quality wooden cabinets and designed to take pride-of-place in customer living rooms.
