Not only is Ruark a leading business in the world of radio, offering excellent high-quality sound with sensational style, but the company has a habit of delivering something extra special with each product.
When you buy a radio from Ruark, you don’t just get DAB connectivity or FM.
A Ruark radio comes with unlimited opportunities to rediscover music and talk radio through seamless connectivity, sensational sound profiles, and more.
Today, we’re taking a closer look at Ruark’s unique approach to the wireless Bluetooth speaker.
The Ruark MRX is a Bluetooth device designed to create the perfect sound system for your kitchen, living room, lounge or study.
What’s more, it comes with the option to link to other internet-enabled devices in the Ruark portfolio, to create a full home sound experience.
There’s the same marl grey fabric covering on the flagship model, as well as that fantastic wood surround that’s so common on Ruark products.
You also get the patented Rotodial solution built into the centre of the product, which you can use to control your music with ease.
The Ruark MRX was designed to be as immersive and straightforward as possible, for people who want to jump into amazing digital audio.
If you want to discover all the benefits of internet radio and streaming, but you don’t want to spend forever fiddling around with tuning knobs and EQ, this is the device for you.
Although the MRX is technically a radio, it doesn’t give you the same range of FM and DAB connections that you usually get from Ruark products.
Instead, the MRX was specifically created to take advantage of all the benefits that streaming technology has to offer.
With this device, you get a fantastic range of streaming options to choose from, including Bluetooth, broadband internet and more.
Although there’s no screen included on the Ruark audio MRX, we didn’t think that this made the device any harder to use. You can still find virtually everything you need using the immersive Ruark dedicated app for Android and iOS devices.
The Ruark Link app allows you to control all the functions of the MRX, and it lets you combine different devices around your home too.
The Ruark MRX is clearly intended to be one of the most futuristic devices from the Ruark line, intended for the modern generation that cares more about Bluetooth streaming and podcasts, than CDs and FM radio.
Ruark MRX review: Features
Feature-wise, one of the main things that set the Ruark audio MRX apart from the crowd, is the fact that its custom made to work as part of a complete audio system.
While, by itself, we think that the Ruark MRX is more than enough to fill a room with vibrant sound, you can definitely upgrade the party by connecting your device to more internet-enabled products from the Ruark range.
The MRX works seamlessly with the R7, R3, and R2, Mk3 models, so you can keep your whole home in tune and in sync with the same amazing music.
What’s more, the internet tuner built into the MRX means that you don’t have to worry about running out at music. You can easily use the web to connect to your favourite channels, whenever and wherever you like.
Coming in at a price of just under £400, the Ruark Audio MRX isn’t the most expensive option in the Ruark portfolio today, but it’s certainly not super affordable either.
