Ruark MR1 Bluetooth Speaker System, Soft Black

Product information

Compact, portable and powerful - Ruark MR1 speakers will perform well with laptops, TVs and hi-fi system all around your home. Bluetooth streaming takes the hassle out of staying connected and, with advanced audio coding, there’s no loss of quality.

Brilliant Wireless Tech
This set features aptX audio coding technology that partners with Bluetooth so compatible devices can stream to MR1 with audio quality virtually indistinguishable from a wired connection.

Super-Powered Sound
These speakers utilise two new drive units, developed specifically to give high performance sound from compact dimensions. Great care has been taken on the woofer and tweeter construction to ensure distortion causing reflections are kept to a minimum.

Intuitive Controls
The MR1 features a control system that’s simple and easy to use. A short press of the volume control turns it on-and-off, while a long press changes the audio input from line-in to Bluetooth or vice-versa. A multi-coloured LED indicates the selected input and also indicates status, blinking rapidly when maximum volume has been reached and blinking intermittently when MR1 is in standby mode.

Versatile Connectivity
On the rear panel of the control unit are outputs for the left hand speaker and a subwoofer, so an active subwoofer can be connected if required. A switchable line-in input with attenuation switch allows numerous audio devices (including a turntable or TV) to be connected.

Slick Remote Control Included
A simple remote control enables all MR1 functions to be set and operated from the comfort of a chair or bed. MR1 also has an auto-standby setting built in and will automatically enter sleep mode if no signal is detected.

Q & As

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Average loudspeakers, beautifully finished in walnut These speakers sounded good at first but after several days listening I was aware of a cabinet resonance that spoilt music and speech reproduction at anything above low listening levels. The remote control is very flimsy, without proper buttons. I didn't think that they were a good purchase for the price. 17 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It takes two to tango Speakers have always come in pairs for stereo sound and Ruark have not forgotten this. The speakers are beautifully made and they sound remarkable for their size. Placed on a desk playing music from a tablet via Bluetooth, true hi-fi sound is achieved with a warmth and depth that is usually lacking from smaller speakers. 12 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ruark MR1 A pair of excellent speakers. Great for large domestic rooms in a compact size. There's a choice of finishes and you can switch from 'Line in' to Bluetooth input at the press of a button. Not the cheapest and may not be perfection for the dedicated audiophile, but they come close. 15 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovely sound They look really retro in my bedroom and they have amazing sound quality!! 26 January 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful little boxes Really elegant design and well made, they look really great on the shelf, and importantly they deliver a high quality, clean sound. Easy to set up. No complaints at all. 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best audio speakers of this size I have listened to Having done some research and listened to a number of competitors I purchased the Ruark's for use with my Computer Very easy to set up I had the installation in cluding the Blue Tooth conection in less than 15 minutes my main use is for Classical Music via CD player noloos downloads and Internet radio Excellent Sound highly recommended 28 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing customer support from Ruark Purchased as seen in sale - no box, accessories, or mains supply. I knew these were brilliant speakers - had Ruark Talismans for years. Ruarks provided mains supply and even remote control by return of post free of charge!! You couldn't ask for more. Amazing cusomer service which backs up my previous experience having visited their factory. Super people at Ruarks. Please pass on to staff and your friends. 05 September 2015
