Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bookshelf speakers I had these hooked up to our previous TV due to the poor sound quality. These speakers improved the sound dramatically. Our new TV (Sony) has very good speakers and so these speakers are now attached to my Mac Mini and are fantastic. Suggested improvements include a more robust remote control and bluetooth that does not drop out regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought on a recommendation I bought my MR1 MK2 System from Richer Sounds, Oxford with some trepidation, since it was purely on a recommendation from a friend who 'knows about these things', when even I know that you can't expect a full, rich sound from such small speakers. Well, these are my findings. First thoughts - Very well built, solid, with a great 'retro' look and design, which shouts QUALITY. I am impressed. Next - Good,flexible connectivity for Bluetooth, Aux.,Dig. Optical, and even a sub-woofer outlet for a larger room. All very easy to set up. I am delighted. Then - Surprisingly good full, rich, well-balanced sound, even the low frequencies, especially the low frequencies. Happy days. Overall - Great value for money. What more can you say? except . . Clearly my friend really does 'know about these things'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from a small package I only bought this the other day, but I have used it to play vinyl, via Bluetooth and from TV and the clarity of the sound from bass to treble is fantastic for all the sources. It is also easy to set up and use. We also have a Ruark R4 which we have had a few years now and have found to be great quality. Choosing these speakers on the back of reviews and our experience with Ruark products was an easy one. We are not disappointed! I would recommend to anyone, although if you want a system that allows multi-room streaming, this is not the system for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible little things I've had these MR1 Mk2 speakers for a week now and they have blown me away (literally and metaphorically). They have made me love listening to music again. Well done Ruark!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, sounds great and looks good! Bought these speakers to replace my Sonos Play 5, which has now been forced into redundancy with all my other Sonos products. The MR1s are a step up sonically and for a fraction of the price of a new Play 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice compact versatile pair of speakers Bought to partner a Brennan, great sound from a small package, nicely designed and versatile with the optical input most used so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Just installed as speakers with my iMac, replacing a pair of Bose ones. Much fuller grown up sound, going to run with my new Brennan B2, and Spotify. Perfect for my set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desktop audio perfection? Maybe not quite but close. I bought these to replace a good quality Bluetooth portable speaker in the home office. I was after a genuine stereo image and a little more bass. Reviews suggested that these might hep, they were right and then some. Sound quality is very impressive from a small form factor that's just about right for a decent sized desk. They feel well built while set up and operation are easy. Nice touches include ability to adjust input levels for "hot" signals and a snooze mode that just works. If I wanted to gripe the supplied remote is a little on the cheap / functional side but it's reliable. Bluetooth paring is a cinch yielding a nice sounding and reliable connection. What's not to like.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Un petit volume mais un gros son L'achat de ces enceintes fait suite à celui d'une radio R1 Mk3 qui me donne pleine satisfaction dans la cuisine très réverbérante . La MR1 Mk2 a trouvé sa place en sonorisation de la télévision et diffusion de musique dans la salle à manger La puissance constatée est largement suffisante pour une utilisation dans une pièce de 40 m carré en utilisation normale La qualité du son est juste incroyable pour le volume des enceintes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real HiFi, proper stereo, yet compact convenience. Real HiFi sound and natural stereo separation (two units, not left and right speakers stuffed in one box) and no artificial DSP 'effects' needed to give an intimate and spacious sound. Tonally all frequencies are there, and even. Placement close to a wall will reinforce the bass, but otherwise the bass is taught and strong but not overbearing - aided by bass relflexes underneath each unit. Easy to control volume, source input, on/off and pair with Bluetooth. My TVs optical output works fine with it, as does my Chromecast Audio via 3.5mm aux input or Optical 'Toslink'. There's even an output for an active subwoofer. I'm very glad I bought the optional powerpack that screws into the right/amplifier speaker. This can drive both speakers for "up to 5 hours"(seems to indeed) without main electricity, or just use the right unit on it's own on battery. The sound seems identical from both units, despite the right housing the amplifier, and both seem to weigh the same. No tone adjustments but you can do that on your source. It would have been a nice touch to be able to skip tracks on the remote (as you can over bluetooth e.g. in a car). Focusing on what's important, this is fantastically accurate sound reproduction, that I think benefits from the inbuilt amp being so well tuned to the speaker drivers (2 for each channel + bass reflex).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speakers. Bought these after a lot of deliberating about whether to spend a lot on a separates system or to go for something all-in-one. These are brilliant...sound a lot better than anything that small should be able to do. Glad I didn't bother with the separates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from these stylish boxes I bought these for my old farmhouse kitchen. I was looking for something to blend in and not dominate the room. They fit the bill wonderfully. The sound is precise but musical and considering their size, they fill the room. I added a small subwoofer to add a little support for the bottom end. I can't really think of any negatives here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product and after sales backup The sound from these speakers is superb for their size and the build quality is excellent. I bought them to replace an old cinema system as I was unhappy with the sound for listening to music. I now use these for listening to my music library using Bluetooth connection, and also for better sound on my TV using a digital cable. Initially I had a problem with this connection but it was sorted out immediately by the Ruark technicians.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound quality As I had previously bourght a Ruark R4 music system and was so impressed with the build and sound that I had no hesitation in buying the MR1 MK2 speakers to compliment a new turnable when I decided to get all my old vinyl out of storage. The sound quality from such small speakers is unbelievable and I am well impressed and satisfied

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite amazing! I did a lot of research before choosing the MR1 Mk2’s to pair with my Bluetooth turntable. It’s no wonder they score highly in reviews. The sound is clear and agile even at higher volumes. They are pleasing on the eye (I chose the soft grey’s). Bluetooth pairing is as easy as pie. For the money they are quit amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal Santa delivered these last month, I wanted them to use in my office at home so they are connected via Bluetooth to my Macbook Air and usually fed via Roon. Frankly I think they’re brilliant, for their size, for the money and most importantly for the sound. The packaging and initial set up are both prime examples of best in class, well designed and thought through from the customer's perspective. But it is still the sound that impresses most, if anything I think its improving with use and I’ll probably get round to using the digital cable connection at some point to give them the best chance to shine. I’ve already recommended them to a couple of friends and will continue to do so as the opportunity arises. Really very good product and exactly what I needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speakers I bought the speakers to use with my Mac computer. They were very easy to set up and the sound is excellent when playing music from my Spotify account. I strongly recommend them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very classy! Bought 2 weeks ago for my computer and I'm quite happy with the MR1. Pay attention to the wires that you're gonna used as it can reduce the sound quality perceived. Must confess also that with an additional tiny subwoofer I could be happier (btw really close to get one :) ). It's a bit pricy but at the end the sound is clear and the stereo stellar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Following great reviews elsewhere, I bought these speakers to go with my Brennan B2. Connected via an optical cable I have been very impressed. The sound quality is excellent and at the highest volume levels I've tried there is no distortion or buzzing. Truly amazing for their size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound My children bought me this for Christmas and it has revolutionised my listening to both music and speech. The quality of the sound is excellent and I am so enjoying a quality soundtrack to my daily life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service Bought the speakers at the London Bridge branch and received great advice from the manager there. Bought them in Walnut colour and they look really good and sound quality is excellent . We had some trouble setting them up ( due to our own stupidity it turned out) and Richer Sounds dent someone out to our house to help us set everything up the very next day - amazing !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound! Small speakers with wonderful sound. The only thing I added is a subwoofer (REL T Zero).
