Ruark are constantly looking for ways to make your listening experience even more pleasing and with the MR1 MK2 they have managed to improve on perfection.
TV Sound System - Optical Input
Although the original MR1 could be connected to your TV to improve the sound the new MR1 MK2 takes that feature and improves it even further by utilising an optical input this means that you can connect your new MR1 Mk2 into your TV and not only enjoy a far superior soundstage when compared to a conventional soundbar, you will also have a product that brings a designer conscious element to your lounge or wherever you choose to use them.
Wireless Hifi System
Of course the MR1 Mk2 have far more up their sleeve than just TV audio. The MR1 includes a 3.5mm Aux input meaning you can connect devices such as a CD Player using a Jack to Phono cable. You can also enjoy wireless music using the built in Bluetooth APTx that delivers CD Quality audio without the wires. You could also use the digital optical input to connect your Chromecast Audio and enjoy superior sound. And lets not forget that the Ruark MR1 MK2 would also make fantastic turntable speakers utilising any one of the inputs.
Its not just the addition of the optical input that makes the MR1 MK2 something to relish, Ruark have spent considerable time tweaking the crossover and the amplifier components. This work has resulted in an improved sound and when combined with their loudness management DSP their performance will be worthy of a speaker far larger in stature. You can rest assured that whatever volume you are enjoying your music at the Ruark MR1 MK2 will greet you with a precise full bodied sound that promises not to be overbearing but far bigger than you would imagine.
The Ruark MR1 were a designer statement that lavished high end hotels and designer boutiques but when compared to the new MR1 MK2 there is no competition, the MK2 win hands down. The removable grilles have been replaced by an attractive grey acoustic cloth that is sourced in Great Britain. The rich walnut veneer finish has been retained and is now joined by a soft grey lacquer finish. All of this combines to create something that is beautifully crafted.
The MR1 MK2 can also bring a touch of class to your patio or decking area utilising the optional backpack battery pack. You could of course plug them in to a mains supply but using the battery pack means that you can entertain your guest without the hassle of plugging them in. Ruark have taken that portability and improved it even further, if you only have room to carry one speaker when out for a picnic then the master speaker will switch to mono mode meaning that you wont lose any information from your favourite tracks.
