MR1 Mk2 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. Linear amplification is one reason why MR1 sounds so good.
MR1 Mk2 features a control system which like our other products is slick and easy to use, allowing input and volume to be quickly changed, with pin-point LEDs displaying system status and source. In addition, source, volume and functions can be operated and set from afar with the supplied compact remote control.
With auto-standby built in, MR1 will automatically enter sleep mode after a short period of time if no signal is detected. This feature is particularly useful when using MR1 as a sound system for your TV as they will automatically wake and sleep as and when the TV is turned on and off.
MR1 Mk2 features both an analogue and optical digital input allowing auxiliary devices to be easily connected. In particular, the optical input is ideal for connecting streaming devices such as Google Chromecast, Amazon Alexa or Apple AirPort Express and it also provides the perfect connection point for flat screen TV’s. MR1 also features a dedicated subwoofer output allowing an active subwoofer to be connected for extra dynamics in music and awesome movie sound.
Bluetooth’s ease of use has made it the foremost method for wireless audio streaming, working with virtually all devices and leading music applications such as Spotify and Apple Music. MR1 Mk2 with its high quality aptX Bluetooth receiver allows you to enjoy this technology at its very best with CD quality sound.
MR1 is a high fidelity speaker miniaturised and like larger high fidelity speakers, its internal crossover plays a vital role in making it sound so good! Many compact speakers use a basic single component crossover for ease of assemble and cost, but for MR1 we’ve designed a multi component network using select audio grade components throughout.
MR1 Mk2 features an attractive fixed grille clad in a unique British milled fabric from Camira. This timeless and resilient material, was one of just a few that met our requirement for both its attractive contemporary design and excellent acoustic properties.
As a pair MR1 sounds amazing, but to make them extra portable if the stereo speaker is disconnected then the master unit switches to mono operation. As a single unit MR1 is ideal for taking on holiday so you can enjoy great sound whilst you’re away from home. Add our optional rechargeable battery pack (BackPack) and you can also enjoy MR1 further afield, completely free of a mains connection.
