Ruark Audio -
Award Winning Bluetooth Speaker System in Walnut & Soft Grey.
MR1 Mk2

Best Desktop Speaker "What Hi Fi Awards" 2017 & 2018

MR1 Mk2 features a linear Class A-B amplifier with a quality switch mode power supply.
Linear amplifiers are used in the world’s best audio equipment and in our opinion still offer superior performance when compared to new style digital amplifiers, which often sound unrefined in comparison.
Linear amplification is another reason why MR1 sounds so good.

MR1 Mk2 features a control system which like our other products is slick and intuitive to use, allowing input and volume to be quickly changed, with pin-point LEDs indicating system status and source.
In addition, source, volume and functions can be operated and set from the comfort of your chair with the supplied compact remote control.

With auto-standby, MR1 will automatically enter sleep mode if no signal is detected for a few minutes.
This feature is particularly useful when using MR1 as a sound system for your TV as they will automatically wake and sleep as and when the TV is turned on or off. For use with computers, this feature can be disabled if required.

MR1 features both an analogue and optical digital input allowing auxiliary devices to be easily connected.
In particular MR1 is an excellent addition to improve the sound of modern flat panel TVs as the optical input provides the perfect connection point.
MR1 also features a dedicated Sub-woofer output allowing an active Sub-woofer to be connected for extra dynamics in music and awesome movie sound.

Bluetooth’s ease of use has made it the foremost method for wireless audio streaming, working with virtually all devices and leading music services such as Spotify, Apple and Amazon Music .
MR1 Mk2 with its high quality aptX Bluetooth receiver allows you to enjoy this technology at its very best with CD quality sound.

MR1 is a high fidelity speaker miniaturised and like larger high fidelity speakers, its internal crossover plays a vital role in making it sound so good!
Many compact speakers use a basic single component crossover for ease of assemble and cost, but for MR1 we’ve developed a multi component network using the best grade components throughout.

MR1 is crafted from materials which we know from our experience provide the best sound quality.
The fixed grille is clad in a unique British milled fabric from Camira that met our stringent requirement for both its attractive design and acoustic properties.
The careful combination of materials also makes MR1 highly tactile and as good to touch as they are to see and hear.

As a pair MR1 sounds amazing, but to make them extra portable MR1 can also be used as a single unit.
When the stereo speaker is disconnected MR1 automatically switches to mono operation, making it ideal for taking outside or on holiday.
Also with the addition of our optional battery pack (BackPack) you can enjoy MR1 for up to 12 hours free of a mains connection.
