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

These are the best PC speakers I have ever owned. Tried quite a few black plastic PC speakers before but they all tend to buzz or they don't have the sonic clout of these excellent Hi Fi units

Lovely sound


I am very happy with my Ruark speakers, they sound wonderful and are so small and neat. They wirelessly connected easily to my laptop but I also wanted to connect them to a TV with no bluetooth. Not being very tech savvy I had to ask a friend about...
