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.
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.
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 USB playback port which allows you to conveniently 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.
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.
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 easy to perform on our custom app for iOS and Android devices called Ruark LINK. This allows control of each device in the group, so volume etc. can be set to your liking.
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 unrefined in comparison. Alongside our new custom drive units, linear amplification is another reason why MRx sounds so good.
We’ve designed MRx so it can be used in both landscape and portrait orientation and have included threaded inserts on the rear so it can also be wall mounted if required. In addition, a selector switch allows MRx to be used singly or with two units 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.
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.
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.
