Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Product These are a fabulous pair of speakers and easily justify their high praise. The build quality / functionality is excellent and the sound is almost perfect. There is plenty of power to get a well balanced and lively performance from all types of music. FLAC / lossless songs reveal very good separation and atmosphere while more compressed recordings can sound a little sterile at times. Steaming from my laptop, Apple Music sounded very good good, but Tidal sounded better and placing the speakers near the wall added more a bit more bass. I found connecting the speaks to my desktop via the 3.5mm aux (Audioquest cable) added a little more definition and focus. Having said that, either way the sound is head and shoulders above other desktop speakers I have listened to, albeit not all in the same price bracket. I highly recommend the MR1 Mk11 speakers without reservation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astounding sound for their size. I bought these speakers after much internal debate. They are not cheap after all, and they are connected to my audio streamer in my office which is a small converted conservatory with all the acoustic issues that come with glass walls. So the big question was would I get a good sound that warranted paying the price of the mr1 or should I go with cheaper products. Needless to say I think I made the right choice. I've had a pair of Ruark Sceptres for many years in my lounge and loved the fulness of the sound. I was amazed at how well these tiny mr1s stand up alongside them. During this current lockdown I was helping my daughter with a video lesson from her guitar teacher. He asked if I could play over the hills and far away by led zeppelin for her. The speakers were in the office/conservatory while we were in the adjoining dining room. I cranked up the volume expecting things to break down but they filled the entire space with a full sound that showed no signs of distortion. I'd also like to thank the technical support person who helped me overcome a puzzling problem that he had never heard of himself. After a short while of use the speaker controls would start to overreact. Pressing the down volume once would cause them to drop step by step to 0, pressing volume up (on either the remote or with a twist if the knob) kid send them up to max. Power cycling would fix it for 20 minutes or so. A quick call to the tech support line and a helpful chat taught me how to preform a hard reset on the speakers. This is undocumented as far as I can tell but it worked a treat and I've had no problems since that day. Thank you to all at Ruark for a great product and for the excellent pre sales at Sevenoaks hi fi too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Listened to lots of speakers before buying these I visited a number of places and even bought a set of speakers before stumbling upon these. In short, they are incredible! Brilliant detail and accuracy with the perfect amount of punch (plus a sub out if you need more). The floor noise is next to nil which is a common problem when buying good speakers paired with digital amps but Ruark have nailed it here. Really impressed and I’ve owned B&Ws and A&Es so I have a solid benchmark.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful with flaws Aesthetically pleasing, beautifully crafted. Sound mostly as expected. However, bluetooth keeps going into standby during use, which is serious flaw. Volume button on the speaker is too loosely fitted, which reduces the overall quality impression

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the MR1 MK2 I wanted an all in one speakers which I could use to play wirelessly from and also as a desktop speakers for gaming, Netflixing and Spotifying. No regrets with the purchase. Sound was clear at all volume settings. Everything tinkle could heard. The bass though I wished for more, was enough to complement and emphasize most genre of music and occasions. next up is to connect maybe a suitable subwoofer and turntable to optimize these wonderful table top speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely looking and great sounding desktop speakers I bought the MR1 Mk2 speakers to replace a 15 year old iPod dock that I'd been using on my desk as PC speakers. The Ruarks had great reviews for looks and sound plus they added Bluetooth capability. Their wood finish suits my desk perfectly and magnetic shielding means they can sit either side of my monitor. Pairing is simple plus there are mini-jack and optical inputs as well. The sound was pretty good straight out of the box but has improved after a week or so of running in. There is surprisingly deep bass from such a small box but it's tuneful and propels music along as bass should. The sound character suits a wide range of music from metal to vocal to classical. I haven't used my headphones while working since having them. On the downside, pairing with more than one device is a pain and occasionally after swapping sources the Bluetooth needs to be reset to restore volume. These are minor inconveniences though.
