 Product Notes  

World Radio

With an internet radio tuner built in, MRx gives you virtually unlimited access to radio stations at home and abroad. If you’re living away from home, you can stay connected with your favourite stations through the wonders of internet radio and if you love country or jazz then you can search worldwide by musical genre to find stations that specialise in the type of music you love. MRx also allows you to access radio podcasts and catch-up services, notably programmes from the BBC, so if you ever miss a show you can catch up at your leisure.

High Quality Bluetooth

For a quick and easy connection without the need for wi-fi, MRx has a high-performance aptX Bluetooth receiver so you can directly stream from compatible devices to MRx with CD quality sound. An increasing number of Smartphones and other devices have aptX technology built-in, but with or without, sound quality over Bluetooth with MRx is remarkable.

Wired Connectivity Too

Alongside its wireless connectivity, MRx also has great direct connectivity, with a combined line-in and digital optical input allowing auxiliary devices such as a turntable, Amazon Dot, Google Chromecast or Apple AirPort Express to be easily connected. Also featured is a multi-purpose USB socket which allows you to conveniently charge your smartphone and also playback music stored on a memory stick or portable hard drive in a variety of popular audio codecs. Furthermore, all these inputs are multi-room enabled, so if desired can be streamed wirelessly to other MRx or our R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 models.

Ethernet Connection

MRx has been designed for wireless connectivity, but also we’ve included an ethernet socket so MRx can be wired to a network if required. A wired ethernet connection ensures reliability in playback and can also prove useful if you want to use MRx where the wi-fi signal from your home router is variable or weak. In this case, ethernet powerline adaptors can be used and provide an easy to use solution to resolve network problems.

Multi-Room Ready

With its ‘multi-room’ capabilities you can wirelessly link and sync MRx with additional MRx or our R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 models, so you can distribute music all around your home. Set-up and control of multi-room configuration and groups is performed using our soon to be released app for iOS and Android devices called Ruark LINK. This allows control of each device in the group, so volume etc. can be balanced to your liking.

Perfect Sound

MRx features a linear Class A-B amplifier with a quality switch mode power supply. Linear amplifiers are used in the world’s best audio equipment and in our opinion still offer superior performance when compared to new style digital amplifiers, which often sound forced and artificial in comparison. Alongside our new custom drive units, linear amplification is another reason why MRx sounds so good.

Flexible Usage

MRx can be used in both landscape and portrait orientation and we’ve included threaded inserts on the rear panel so MRx can also be wall mounted if required. In addition, on the rear panel is a four-way selector switch allowing MRx to be set up and used singly as a stereo or mono unit or with two MRx a stereo pair can be created. However, you use MRx its beautiful design makes it a focal point which will enhance your surroundings and life.

Wireless Music Access

MRx allows you to wirelessly access music stored on computers and NAS drives connected to your home network. This makes MRx ideal if you like to download music or record and store your CDs on one central device. It supports a variety of popular audio codecs including WAV, WMA, AAC, FLAC and MP3. Please note that audio streaming over a network requires a NAS drive or PC/Mac running DLNA certified software with sharing enabled.

Beautiful to Hear and Behold

MRx is crafted from select materials which we know from our years spent designing High-Fidelity loudspeakers, provide the best sound. Additionally, we understand aesthetics and how the combination of our hand finished cabinets, controller, alloy stand and British-sourced fabric front creates something special. Its beauty lies in its simplicity; not just in its ease-of-use, but in its sophisticated, timeless design.
