Ruark MR1 Bluetooth® Speaker

As speakers for computer systems they’re ideal, but they are also equally at home as speakers to dramatically improve the sound of flat panel TVs and as extension speakers for our own R2i/R4i models and other systems. Even alone they are capable of providing the basis of a complete music system (just connect a Turntable or CD player) and with Bluetooth® and aptX™ built-in, audio can be streamed and played wirelessly through MR1s with CD like sound.
