RUARK AUDIO MULTIROOM COMPATIBLE MRX WIRELESS SPEAKER

The British audio outfit, Ruark Audio, will soon release the MRx. This wireless speaker offers integrated Bluetooth with aptX, broadband internet connection to radio stations, plus Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, with a promise that Amazon Music will also be added soon.

Using driver technology know-how from their MR1, Ruark developed new full-range speaker units, especially for the MRx. These sport a new lightweight cone and coil assembly coupled with a neodymium magnet system. These drivers are mounted as a stereo pair into tuned bass reflex enclosures which are powered by a two-channel Class A/B amplifier.

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. There's also a multi-purpose USB socket that enables the MRx to play music files from memory sticks, as well as providing a handy port to charge/power your smart devices.

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.

Via the Link app, users can 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 in New Zealand from June 2018 for $899 in Soft Grey or Rich Walnut Veneer.
