Independent reviews have shown that Ruark's award winning MR1 Bluetooth speakers provide remarkable sound in multiple applications. Improved for 2017, MR1 Mk2 retains all the attributes of the original, but with a fresh new look and updates to sound and connectivity, they are now better than ever!

"The step up in performance in impressive, and the Ruark MR1 Mk2s manage to be even more appealing than before. Quite simply, these are superb speakers of their type." Best Home Audio Product 2017 Truisted Reviews.

"The upgrades that Ruark has made to an already impressive Bluetooth speaker system have brought it damn near to perfection. Very classy indeed." Best Desktop Speaker 2017 What Hi-Fi

A POWERFUL PERFORMANCE

Custom tweeter and bass units for MR1 have been designed specifically to ensure optimum performance from its compact dimensions, with both featuring powerful rare-earth neodymium motor systems. This special system provides greater magnetic concentration, for better driver control, in a lightweight and fully magnetically shielded system.

GREAT CONNECTIVITY

Voice control and streaming from the likes of Amazon and Google are exciting new technologies, but knowing which one is right for you and which will stand the test of time can be a daunting decision. This is a key reason why all Ruark products incorporate Bluetooth and additional inputs, so new technology devices can easily be connected and enjoyed with our products class leading sound and when technology changes (which it is bound to) then it is very easy for you to upgrade as required.

BACKPACK II

Combine MR1 with the optional BackPack II and you will be able to enjoy MR1 wherever mains power is not available. Placing batteries inside takes valuable speaker capacity, but BackPack II allows MR1 to retain its rich mains powered performance with the benefit of complete portability.

A total evolution of the original, BackPack II attaches seamlessly to MR1 and once fitted can be left permanently in place as it charges automatically whenever connected to a mains power supply. A full charge will provide up to twelve hours of mains free listening depending on volume.

Features:

SOUND PERFECTION

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 forced and artificial in comparison. Linear amplification is one reason why MR1 sounds so good.

BE IN CONTROL

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

ALWAYS READY

With auto-standby built in, MR1 will automatically enter sleep mode after a short period of time if no signal is detected. 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 and off.

GET CONNECTED

MR1 Mk2 features both an analogue and optical digital input allowing auxiliary devices to be easily connected. In particular, the optical input is ideal for connecting streaming devices such as Google Chromecast, Amazon Alexa or Apple AirPort Express and it also provides the perfect connection point for flat screen TV’s. MR1 also features a dedicated subwoofer output allowing an active subwoofer to be connected for extra dynamics in music and awesome movie sound.

BLUETOOTH AT ITS BEST

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

A MINI MARVEL

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 designed a multi component network using select audio grade components throughout.

BEAUTIFUL AND ENDURING

MR1 Mk2 features an attractive fixed grille clad in a unique British milled fabric from Camira. This timeless and resilient material, was one of just a few that met our requirement for both its attractive contemporary design and excellent acoustic properties.

DUO – UNO

As a pair MR1 sounds amazing, but to make them extra portable if the stereo speaker is disconnected then the master unit switches to mono operation. As a single unit MR1 is ideal for taking on holiday so you can enjoy great sound whilst you’re away from home. Add our optional rechargeable battery pack (BackPack) and you can also enjoy MR1 further afield, completely free of a mains connection.
