Product Information:

The idea behind the MR1 Bluetooth speaker system was to create compact speakers capable of providing high quality sound from a multitude of different devices.

As speakers for your home pc or laptop they’re ideal, but they also stand up equally as excellent as HIFI style speakers to massively improve your flat panel TV or as an extension to your existing R2i or R4i music systems. Even on their own they can be used as a complete music system when plugged into a CD or turntable. With Bluetooth and aptX built-in, audio can be streamed wirelessly through the MR1’s with CD like quality.

The styling of the MR1s have been made to complement Ruark’s existing R-series. The hand-crafted enclosures with sleek metal fittings and fine fabric grilles are highly tactile and finished in a choice of Rich Walnut or Ruark’s new Soft White or Soft Black lacquers.

Ruark have used their past, vast experience with cabinet and speaker design to miniaturise and squeeze every last drop of sound from these small Bluetooth speakers which they have completely achieved. These being the very first Ruark speakers we heard, obviously they have had quite an impression!

MR1's control systems: In keeping with Ruark’s philosophy, MR1 features a control system which is simple and easy to use. A short press of the volume control turns MR1 on and off and 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.

MR1's inputs & outputs: 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 with phono pre-amplifier or TV) to be connected and enjoyed with MR1s high fidelity sound.

aptX audio coding technology: MR1 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. Many computers and handheld devices now come as standard with aptX®, but with or without, sound quality over Bluetooth with MR1 is impressive.

MR1's amplifier: Quoted power outputs for modern electronic devices are often misleading. Like their other products, MR1 features a linear Class A-B stereo amplifier with a high capacity power supply. Linear amplifiers are used in the world’s best audio equipment and in Ruark’s (and ours) opinion still offer far better sound quality than new style digital amplifiers which sound forced and artificial in comparison.

MR1's drive unit: MR1 utilises two new drive units, developed specifically to give high performance sound from MR1s compact dimensions. Using the latest design software, great care has been taken on the woofer and tweeter construction to ensure distortion causing reflections are kept to a minimum. Both units also feature rare earth neodymium magnet systems. This type of magnet material is expensive compared to conventional ferrite systems, but allows greater magnetic concentration, for better driver control, in a lightweight and fully shielded system.

MR1's remote control: A simple remote control enables all MR1 functions to be set and operated from the comfort of a chair or bed. MR1 also has as auto-standby built in and will automatically enter sleep mode after a period if no signal is detected. This feature is particularly useful when using MR1 with TVs, as they will automatically reactivate or sleep as and when the TV is turned on or off.
