On the rear panel of the control unit are outputs for the left hand speaker and a subwoofer, so an active subwoofer can be connected if required. A switchable line-in input with attenuation switch allows numerous audio devices (including a Turntable or TV) to be connected and enjoyed with MR1s high fidelity sound.
MR1 features aptX® audio coding technology that partners with Bluetooth® so compatible devices can stream to MR1 with audio quality virtually indistinguishable from a wired connection. Many computers and handheld devices now come as standard with aptX® , but with or without, sound quality over Bluetooth with MR1 is impressive.
Quoted power outputs for modern electronic devices are often misleading. Like other Ruark products, MR1 features a linear Class A-B stereo amplifier with a high capacity power supply. Linear amplifiers are used in the world’s best audio equipment and in our opinion still offer far better sound quality than new style digital amplifiers which sound forced and artificial in comparison.
