As independent reviews have shown, our award winning MR1 Bluetooth speakers are capable of remarkable sound in multiple applications. As computer speakers they work perfectly, but moreover they are equally suited to dramatically improve the sound of flat panel TVs and as extension speakers for our own and many other systems.

Even alone, they can be the foundation of a complete music system. Add a turntable and you can be part of the vinyl revival and with a high quality aptX Bluetooth reciever built-in, you can also stream and play your music wirelessly to MR1 from many compatible devices with CD quality sound.

The MR1s complement our R-Series and are immediately recognisable as a Ruark Audio design. Highly tactile and with luxurious finishes, their style and proportions will comfortably fit in all applications and locations.

Concerning sound quality, we’ve used the skills from our loudspeaker past, to squeeze the last drop of performance from the MR1s compact design. You can find out more about the techniques we use in our features section, but the end result is a speaker system with lifelike dynamics and a wide natural frequency response.
