The FR-N7 is a somewhat cost-reduced variant of the FR-N9, which does not feature compatibility with Onkyo CD Recorder components. It was sold exclusively in Japan as the X-N7, with smaller faux wood-grain veneer D-N7X speakers than its more expensive cousin. It can also be distinguished by the metallic plastic, rather than brushed aluminium, volume knob.

A refreshed version, the FR-N7X, was released in 2006.
