Perfect as computer speakers, ideal to use with a turntable and a fantastic way to improve the sound of your TV, MR1 Mk2 has been designed to fill your life and home with quality sound without dominating it. Perfect for design conscious customers…

    SOUND FOUNDATIONS

    Alone, MR1 can be the foundation of a complete music system. Add a turntable and you can be part of the vinyl revival and with a high quality aptX Bluetooth receiver built-in, you can also stream and play your music wirelessly to MR1 from compatible devices with CD quality sound.

    A POWERFUL PERFORMANCE

    Our tweeter and bass units for MR1 have been designed specifically to ensure optimum performance from its compact dimensions, with both featuring powerful neodymium magnet systems. This type of magnet allows greater magnetic concentration, for better driver control, in a lightweight and fully shielded system.

  • LINEAR PERFECTION
    MR1 Mk2 features a Class A-B linear amplifier with a quality switch mode power supply. Linear amplifiers are used in the world’s best audio equipment and in our opinion 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

    BE IN CONTROL
    MR1 Mk2 features a control system which like our other products is easy to use, allowing the source and volume to be quickly changed as required. In addition, source, volume and functions can also be set and operated from the comfort of a chair with the supplied compact remote control.

    ALWAYS READY
    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 with your TV as they will automatically wake and sleep as and when the TV is turned on and off.

    GET CONNECTED
    MR1 Mk2 features both analogue and optical digital inputs allowing auxiliary devices to be easily connected. In particular, the optical input is ideal for connecting streaming devices such as Google Chromecast and it also provides the perfect connection point for most flat screen TV’s. MR1 also features a subwoofer output allowing an active subwoofer to be connected for extra dynamics in music and awesome movie sound.

    BLUETOOTH AT ITS BEST
    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.

    A MINI MARVEL
    MR1 is a high fidelity speaker miniaturised and like larger high fidelity systems, its internal crossover plays a vital role in making it sound so good! Many compact speakers use a basic single component crossover for cost and ease of assemble, but for MR1 we’ve designed a multi component network using quality audio grade components throughout.

    BEAUTIFUL AND ENDURING
    MR1 Mk3 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 look and excellent acoustic properties.

    DUO – UNO
    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 power pack (BackPack) and you can also enjoy MR1 further afield completely free of a mains connection.
