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 build quality ; aptX Bluetooth capability ; Onboard amplification ; Sound is gorgeous

Could use more inputs

The Ruark MR1 speaker package is incredibly compact and gorgeously finished in high-lacquer fashion. Colour choices of white, black and walnut await the buyer and they’ll be well served by each. If we have one minor gripe with the Ruarks, a lack of...

Great sound from small speakers


We had had the speakers for a week now and they were to go either side of a turntable we bought after we rediscovered our old Lp/45''s collection in the loft. Very happy with the sound quality from such small speakers and with the added bonus of being...

Superb sound in a stunning little package


Purchased from the Belfast store (Chris was most helpful), this is an amazing product. Streaming music works perfectly and I have the speakers hooked up to the TV via an optical lead. Expensive? Not for what you get. A sumptuous speaker system.

Amazing speakers!


I bought these to act as desktop speakers with my laptop. I have them connected over Bluetooth and the sound is amazing. It's like having a decent hi-fi on my desk. The volume is also great and they look amazing. I added the rechargeable battery pack,...

House to BBQ


The MR1 sounds excellent and for a system with such compact speakers, pack quite a punch and looks very elegant and discreet. However, many people don't realize, but the battery pack (sometimes sold as an accessory for the DAB radio) is designed to fit...

Ruark Has It Covered


Ever since I purchased my first Ruark product I have looked no further for quality entertainment. Beautifully built with classic quality appearance - these Bluetooth speakers will happily fit in to most rooms in your home. Rich tone will not...

Average loudspeakers, beautifully finished in walnut


These speakers sounded good at first but after several days listening I was aware of a cabinet resonance that spoilt music and speech reproduction at anything above low listening levels. The remote control is very flimsy, without proper buttons. I...

It takes two to tango


Speakers have always come in pairs for stereo sound and Ruark have not forgotten this. The speakers are beautifully made and they sound remarkable for their size. Placed on a desk playing music from a tablet via Bluetooth, true hi-fi sound is achieved...

Ruark MR1


A pair of excellent speakers. Great for large domestic rooms in a compact size. There's a choice of finishes and you can switch from 'Line in' to Bluetooth input at the press of a button. Not the cheapest and may not be perfection for the dedicated...
