Ruark Audio MR1 MK2 Active Bluetooth Speaker System

Featuring a high-quality aptX Bluetooth receiver, digital and analogue inputs allied to a Class A-B amplifier and Ruarks own custom designed crossover and drive units, MR1 Mk2 are true multi-purpose high fidelity speakers. Perfect as computer speakers, ideal to use with a turntable and a fantastic way to improve the sound of your TV, MR1 Mk2 has been designed to fill your life and home with quality sound without dominating it. Perfect for design conscious listeners...

Linear Perfection

Like Ruarks other products, MR1 Mk2 features a Class A-B linear amplifier with a quality switch mode power supply. Linear amplifiers are used in the world’s best audio equipment and offer superior performance when compared to new style digital amplifiers which sound artificial in comparison. This is just one reason why MR1 sounds so good.

A Powerful Performance

The tweeter and bass units for MR1 have been designed specifically to ensure optimum performance from its compact dimensions, with both featuring powerful neodymium magnet systems. This type of magnet allows greater magnetic concentration, for better driver control, in a lightweight and fully shielded system.

Simple Control

MR1 Mk2 features an easy to use control system, allowing the source and volume to be quickly changed as required. In addition, a simple remote control gives you the ability to change source and volume from the comfort of your chair.


With auto-standby built in, MR1 will enter sleep mode after a short period of time if no signal is detected. This feature is particularly useful when using MR1 with your TV as they will automatically reactivate and sleep as required when the TV is turned on and off.

Quality Sound Everywhere

MR1 Mk2 is capable of providing great sound all around your home but by adding the optional power pack (BackPack) you can also enjoy them outdoors on a summers day. In addition, the master unit automatically switches to mono operation when the left stereo speaker is disconnected. As a single unit this makes MR1 extra portable and perfect for taking on holiday.

Get Connected

MR1 MK2 features both analogue and digital inputs allowing auxiliary devices to be easily connected. In particular, the digital optical input is ideal for connecting streaming devices such as Google Chromecast and it also provides the perfect connection point for most flat screen TV’s. MR1 also features a subwoofer output allowing an active subwoofer to be connected to provide extra dynamics 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, Apple Music and BBC iPlayer. 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 systems, its internal crossover plays a vital role in making it sound so good. Many compact speakers use a basic single component crossover for cost and ease of assembly, but for MR1 Ruark designed a multi component network using quality audio grade components throughout.

Beautiful And Enduring

MR1 Mk2 features an attractive fixed inset 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 look and excellent acoustic properties.
