MRx has been built for wireless streaming and offers a fantastic choice of options. For direct streaming, its Bluetooth receiver allows quick and easy connection and with aptX technology you will enjoy CD quality sound from compatible devices. With a broadband internet connection MRx comes alive and allows access to internet radio and an almost infinite library of music through online services such as Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, with Amazon Music also coming soon. Moreover you can also stream music stored on other networked computers and also from your phone.
Our stylish controller located on the front of MRx allows volume and source to be easily changed, but for full remote control we have a dedicated app for iOS and Android devices called Ruark LINK. This allows full control of all MRx functions and also displays information on the source material being played. LINK also allows users to create and manage groups when two or more MRx units are being used together as part of a multi-room system. R2 Mk3 and R7 Mk3 are also compatible with MRx and can also be controlled with the Ruark LINK app. A dedicated webpage showing the features of LINK will be available soon.
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.
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 performed using our soon to be released app for iOS and Android devices called Ruark LINK. This allows control of each device in the group, so volume etc. can be balanced to your liking.
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.
