Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers I bought these for my home office in December, and they are every bit as good as I was hoping they would be. The build quality is excellent and the walnut finish with the grey fabric grille compliment the sound beautifully. All in all, I'm very happy with my purchase and would certainly look to Ruark Audio for any future HiFi needs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding speakers I bought the speakers in December, they are small but excellent. The sound is amazing, it's like I was listening to different versions of songs I know. Even minimal strokes are distinct, even while listening with alow sound levels the sound is remarkamble. I couldn't recommend those speakers more. I have them on my desk and I think it's great place to use those. For such rather low price you get remarkable product. And it looks great too (I have the wallnut, but I heard the greys are pretty too).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure sound quality I bought these about a year ago as we went into lockdown as part of my home office. Such a good decision. Apart from making voices on calls sounds so natural, it excels when fed a good feed. I use Tidal with an MQA DAC and a decent cable and it is breathtaking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful yet high clarity desk speakers I bought these speakers to attach to a computer and use to play backing tracks that I can play saxophone along to. I need speakers that are powerful enough that I can hear them over the saxophone. When wired directly they are loud enough, although when Bluetooth connected they are not as loud. They have 1.5m cable that links them together which is long enough for me. The speakers are solidly built with beautiful high quality wooden cases. Now when listening to music for pleasure the stereo sound is really good and they pick out sounds I had not heard with my previous mono smart speaker. My only slight criticism is that they switch off when not being used to save power (which is good) but they do so very quickly, which can mean you miss the first few bars of music before they kick on again. All in all though very pleased with them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gift for my daughter I live in Dublin, my daughter in Devon and I wanted to get some good sound into her new house. Contacted the Plymouth shop and order a pair of Ruark MR1 MK2's to be sent to her. There were complications with paying from Ireland so I had to make a bank transfer. This resulted in a shortfall of £6 arriving to Richer Sounds and following a couple of telephone calls they sent the speakers and took the £6 hit. Staff were great to deal with and were very helpful with sorting things out. My daughter is raving about the speakers so in all a great experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sounds from a small portable speaker sys I purchased these speakers a few weeks ago and am continually impressed by the build and soynd quality of these speakers. I am pleased that such small speakers produce such a great sound. The only improvements I would like to see would be a wireless connection between the two speakers but overall I totally recommend them
Date published: 2021-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little speakers I purchased these speakers two weeks ago a month after purchasing the Ruark R3 and being thoroughly impressed with it. These speakers are of the same high quality with an impressive sound that belies their small size. Very easy to use for somebody that is not technically minded. Highly recommend these speakers to someone seeking high quality sound for their small size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb speakers Bought these for a new home audio set up, and they're exceptional. Connected via an amp (3.5mm) to a turntable, and using via optical (tv) and Bluetooth. The sound quality is fantastic; clear, sharp, detailed and they cope really well with range and full sounds. Tested against heavier sounds and really delicate vocal performances, etc. and can't fault them. Set up in a decent size living room/kitchen and haven't needed to push the volume high at all - they really create a lot of a sound, for their size. Aesthetically, they look great, too, and set up, operation and usability are all extremely easy and straight forward. Highly recommend - genuinely great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little speakers I'm using them as my computer speakers and they sound so much better than the tinny rubbish I used to hear with the old ones. Perhaps a bit lacking in bass for games so I might experiment with the woofer output at some point - plenty good enough for general music though. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely looking speakers with equally lovely sound Bought a few weeks ago for my new man cave and love the sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, Attractive package, Reasonable price. I bought these expecting them to cover only the sofa area in a large lounge. I was surprised by how they covered the whole room with a rich STEREO sound across all genres. Even though there is output for an external subwoofer, I found it not necessary since these speakers cover low frequencies well enough, especially if you place them a few inches away from the wall. All in all a great package and highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish little speakers with a great sound. Got these to replace an old cheap pair of speakers and they did not disappoint, small and stylish with a great sound, plugged into my Squeezebox giving access to all my music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Love them. Wasn't too sure if I liked the look of them at first but they are growing on me rapidly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant When I first started to listen to them I was extremely disappointed with the sound quality. Within a few days I thought that they were the best speakers I had ever bought. Thank you to all the other reviewers that convinced me to buy them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wee marvels I've had the MR1 Mk2 for a few weeks now and am very impressed. I bought them with a view to disposing of my current bulky hi-fi system as I have little space in my new cottage. First I set them up on my computer table but was disappointed with the sound quality. When I set them up using my old speakers (Ruark Crusaders!) as stands the sound was a revelation. These wee speakers would seem to require a firm base to perform at their best. I play a selection of music from classical to a variety of modern pop/rock etc. MR1 Mk2s perform best with small scale classical e.g. solo violin, voice and chamber music, unsurprisingly less well with complex orchestral works: still enjoyable. Great with female voice e.g. Adele, Bjork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty Little Speakers I bought these to pair with a new turntable, Music Hall: Classic (this is on backorder), therefore I have been enjoying the streaming capabilities of these fine little speakers. They are simply outstanding, the clarity and balance produced is sublime all in a beautiful cabinet. Can't wait to connect the turntable.
