New Ruark MR1 Mk2 released

Launched today the new Ruark MR1 Mk2.  Based on my experience of the excellent R4 recently, this is going to sound good.  A stereo Bluetooth speaker pair for the modern lifestyle. Building on the first successful incarnation from Ruark in February 2013 the new speakers have number of key enhancements including:

  • a better sound ouput with a revised and improved cross-over and
  • the linear A-B amplifier has been revised and improved
  • a new 3 point LED display indicting inputs and status
  • fixed grilles for contemporary look and acoustic improvement
  • digital optical input
  • compatible with Ruark’s Back Pack II, giving portabilityRuark MR1 Mk2
  • automatic mono mode of the other channel is removed or you are on the move with Back Pack II
  • available finishes: Rich Walnut veneer or Soft Grey lacquer

Looks to me that the optical input will be perfect for computers or TVs if you are looking for a really flexible set-up.
