The Ruark MR1 speakers feature aptX® audio coding technology that partners with Bluetooth® so compatible devices can stream to MR1 with audio quality virtually indistinguishable from a wired connection.
The Ruark MR1 Bluetooth speakers feature a control system which is simple and easy to use. A short press of the volume control turns MR1 on and off and long press changes the audio input from line-in to Bluetooth or vice-versa. A multi coloured LED indicates the selected input and also indicates status, blinking rapidly when maximum volume has been reached and blinking intermittently when MR1 is in standby mode.
On the rear panel of the control unit are outputs for the left hand speaker and a subwoofer, so an active subwoofer can be connected if required. A switchable line-in input with attenuation switch allows numerous audio devices (including a Turntable with phono pre-amplifier or TV) to be connected and enjoyed with MR1s high fidelity sound.
Quoted power outputs for modern electronic devices are often misleading. MR1 features a linear Class A-B stereo amplifier with a high capacity power supply. Linear amplifiers are used in the world’s best audio equipment and still offer far better sound quality than many new style digital amplifiers.
MR1 utilises two new drive units, developed specifically to give high performance sound from MR1s compact dimensions. Using the latest design software, great care has been taken on the woofer and tweeter construction to ensure distortion causing reflections are kept to a minimum. Both units also feature rare earth neodymium magnet systems. This type of magnet material is expensive compared to conventional ferrite systems, but allows greater magnetic concentration, for better driver control, in a lightweight and fully shielded system.
A simple remote control enables all MR1 functions to be set and operated from the comfort of a chair or bed. MR1 also has as auto-standby built in and will automatically enter sleep mode after a period if no signal is detected. This feature is particularly useful when using MR1 with TVs, as they will automatically reactivate or sleep as and when the TV is turned on or off.
