Today, let's talk music. Or more specifically, Audio Tech. The British audio company Ruark Audio has just introduced its first connected wireless speaker called the MRx. The MRx has Ruark’s trademark modern design, and also ushers in the company’s new “Link” app, which it released last summer.

You can expect quality because the MRx comes with capabilities and specs seen in other Ruark products, and builds on them. It’s got a stereo pair of 75mm full-range neodymium drivers that are newly redesigned and powered by a high-fidelity dual channel amplifier. On the back is a four-way selector switch that allows for the MRx to be used as a solo device or part of a stereo pair. In order words, if you are an audiophile, you are in for a treat.
As for connectivity options, it has an integrated Bluetooth receiver with aptX, and via an internet connection, it supports Spotify Connect, Deezer, and Tidal, with Amazon Music forthcoming. If you want to directly plug in, a combined 3.5mm optical and analog input lets you connect anything from a turntable to a Google Chromecast, a multipurpose USB socket can be used with a memory stick or to charge your phone, and there’s an Ethernet socket to hardwire to a network if the speaker is somewhere where signal is weak. Thus this beauty can anything and everything.
Its physical dimensions are quite comfortable too. Horizontally, it measures 11.8 x 7.1 x 7.1 inches, while vertically it's 6.3 x 12.6 x 7.1 inches. And if you need, there are threaded inserts on the rear panel so it can be wall mounted.
The fact that Ruark creates beauty looking and great sounding speakers is wonderful. And even though this speaker starts at 400 pounds, it can still be argued that it is worth it.
