The British audio manufacturer Ruark has been making awesome products for some time now and today they are updating one of their previously released desktop speakers, the Ruark Audio MR1.

The original Ruark Audio MR1 desktop speakers are four-years-old now and so it is about time that they were updated for the digital age.

With this update, Ruark Audio renamed the speaker the Ruark Audio MR1 MK2, however, despite that new name, they have left the design and acoustic performance the same because Ruark believes that they were already close enough to perfect.

The biggest change is the crossover, which helps the MK2 version to provide a bigger sound than what was previously unveiled.

But that’s not all, the new version also comes with a new digital optical input to allow you to connect compatible external devices, along with the addition of apt-X Bluetooth streaming for wireless audio from compatible devices.

They did also make some slight style changes, with fixed versions of the original grilles that have been covered in British fabric. You will still find Ruark’s controller on the top of the right speaker, but this also includes three LEDs with MK2 to display system status and the selected input.

It will also be available in a new Soft Grey colour option alongside the traditional Rich Walnut option.

To top that off, you can also pick up Ruark’s BackPack II power pack to make the speaker wireless, without requiring mains power.

You can pick up the Ruark Audio MR1 MK2 for from £330.
