The MRx offers integrated Bluetooth with aptX, broadband internet connection to radio stations world-wide plus Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, with Amazon Music also coming soon
The new speaker offers a combined 3.5mm optical and analogue input allowing auxiliary devices such as Google Chromecast Audio or Amazon Alexa to be connected and a multi-purpose USB socket plays music files from memory sticks and provides a connection point to charge/power your Smart devices.
Ruark has developed new full-range speaker units based on the driver technology from the MR1. A new lightweight cone and coil assembly coupled with the a neodymium magnet system. These drivers are mounted as a stereo pair into tuned bass reflex enclosures and powered by a two channel Class A-B amplifier.
The controller is located on the grille of MRx allowing volume and source to be changed. Ruark is also introducing a dedicated app for iOS and Android devices called ‘Link’. This allows users full control of all MRx functions and also provides information on the source material being played and allows users to create and manage groups when two or more MRx units are being used together as part of a multi-room system. R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 are also compatible with MRx and can also be controlled with the Ruark Link app.
MRx will be available from May 2018 for £399.
