Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! Extremely happy with these active speakers. Clear precise sound and decent sounding bass, but looking forward to adding the RS1 subwoofer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caring & supportive Such great service from the moment we stepped in. We felt like we were talking to trusted friends. The person who served us took their time to explain and support our decision making process. At no time did we feel rushed and we ended up leaving with what we wanted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speakers, designed/produced in UK. I had been looking for some higher quality compact desktop speakers for my recently updated personal computer system. Following excellent reviews from the likes of What HiFi magazine, I short listed the Ruark MR1's and after further research found that they met my additional requirements, one of which was a very high quality optical input. These are the first desktop speakers I have purchased, I can only compare them to what I had before, but can honestly say that they give a much wider soundstage when listening to various instruments/vocals and each music source is reproduced precisely with all the musical nuances identifiable. When listening to the same music souce via decent quality over the ear headphones, there is very little difference, with the possible exception of very low bass notes being slightly weaker in the Ruark's, something that can be easily fixed with the addition of a decent subwoofer :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound, Great looks! Was looking for some speakers to pair with my Sony bluetooth turntable. Decided to take the plunge & buy the MR1 Mk2's after reading alot of good press & customer reviews. Wasn't disappointed, setup was easy, work perfectly with my turntable & sound is superb. They also look fabulous! Not cheap, but well worth paying the extra for this top quality kit. Highly Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to its expectations For such small speakers, these things pack a surprisingly lively punch. The soundstage is strangely wide given the size of even both together, and even more incredibly, it’s able to maintain balance and a quality delivery across its entire frequency range — regardless of what you throw at it. All this made even better by a dedicated mono-subwoofer output.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers Really impressed with the sound quality of these speakers. Easy to set up too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but Worth Every Penny I'd been umming and awwing about getting these speakers for ages. I'd already spent a lot on a Ruark R5 but the quality of that device and the annoyance of my current Logitech speakers made me finally pull the plug. So glad that I did. These are hugely impressive for their size. Being 2.0 speakers, I thought I'd miss my sub but the bass from these is impressive, as is the mid and high-range. They also look the part on my computer desk. So yes, expensive, but if you can afford them, worth every penny!
