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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounding speakers I first heard these speakers in a local record shop connected to a Rega p2 vinyl player and was very impressed with the sound!! Bluetooth works very well and even has an optical connection to listen to the t.v which sounds v good too. I use my Rsd P1 plus with them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Really good quality speakers could do with a longer lead between speakers, otherwise a very good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great detailed sound Bass comes across well and is very well balanced with top and mid. If you are a bass head perhaps not for you. Bit if you like a balanced sound these are amazing for the size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed My R1 Radio gives a better quality of sound than the speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MR1's on a narrowboat We have a pair of MR1's on our narrowboat where we live full time. They sound superb. The battery pack did not work for us, it discharges quite quickly even when they are turned off and takes a long time to charge....and we only have mains power when the engine is running. I made a little 12volt to 14volt adapter to sort this out. They also go into unstable thumping just before the battery goes flat which was not nice. Another little snag is that we can't easily see the LEDs from where we sit, it would better for us if they were front facing. We use both Bluetooth and Optical which is great for us as it totally avoids the issue of ground noise on 12 volt systems. I had a plan to do a sub-woofer but the bass is so good I have not needed to. So, a bit of effort to get it how we wanted but absolutely brilliant speakers.
