Ruark MR1 Bluetooth review


Powerful sound from compact stereo speakers, with the added benefit of aptX Bluetooth streaming

Although it produces excellent sound, whether your source is wired directly to the speakers or beamed wirelessly over Bluetooth, £300 is a lot for a pair of monitor speakers. You could buy two Best Buy-winning Sonos Play:1 speakers for around £340, but...

Ruark MR1 Bluetooth Speaker System Review


Mark Hodgkinson takes Ruark's compact Bluetooth speaker system for a spin. And he doesn't want to give them back.

Great speaker


Bought these about a month ago to act as alternative to a sound bar for the TV and also a bluetooth speaker for music (from Amazon Echo). Relatively small size and nice styling mean they look nice in our room, and a big upgrade on the sound. Very happy

Fantastic sound quality


I bought these speakers for my son to use with his new record deck (audio technica). He is at University so we didn't want anything to bulky. I have to say the sound quality that these pocket gems produce is incredible considering how compact they are....
