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...

Review: Ruark MR1 Mk2 stereo Bluetooth speakers (review)


Bluetooth speakers are a dime a dozen. And most of them are hampered by one design flaw. Although “stereo”, both speakers are usually in one little box.

Stylish, good sound quality, produce a surprisingly “large” sound, Bluetooth aptX codec support from some Android phones, optical and analogue inputs, single speaker mode

Can run out of oomph at high volumes in larger rooms

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

Impressive sound and volume for their size


Impressive scale of sound for their size, clear and detailed. Perhaps a little bass heavy depending on where they're situated, but impressed that they can produce this.

Excellent piece of kit.


Glad I bought this after checking out the competition. The sound that comes out of a box of this size is very impressive. The price did make me think twice, but I made the right decision. Easy to use and suites my desk top set-up very well.

Oozes quality


I have had my Walnut MR1 Mk2's for a month now and I love them. Smooth wooden cabinets feel solid and well made. Great looking speakers with a big sound. Small enough to fit in anywhere. I wouldn't mind buying a few more pairs for every room in the house!

Recommendation justified


Recommended to buy these by a great friend, I did so and am delighted. They have paired up superbly with the Cambridge Audio Minx x201 and now form the centre of my ew system.

A great choice


I have had my speakers for 9 months now and decided that it was worth me writing to say how happy I am with them. The detail and stereo separation is great. I wanted to improve the bass and added a Cambridge Audio Aero which supposedly goes down to...
