Ruark Bluetooth speakers

Post by pepezabala » Sun Oct 27, 2013 5:06 pm

Anyone has hear/used those?

I am sick of cables in my living room, and still have not found a soundsystem that I like. These Ruark MR1 look neat, but are a bit pricey.

...well, i got a bose soundlink here....and apart from the fact that the bluetooth latency makes it impossible to do anything else with it, but use it as a hifi solution, they sound pretty good...

but listening to music without cables inbetween is not hifi at all, end of the day....

in fact i always got trouble with the connection.....little crackling noises here and there.....no cables...no hifi...

that was I was wondering as well. So bluetooth audio is a hype. Doesn't make sense to spend 300 pounds on speakers if it sounds crap, isn't it?

That's a lot of money for something so tiny.

£300 for something with a 3" woofer? 10W per channel?

I notice they don't mention the frequency response on their web site. I wonder why? Because it's rubbish.

Buy a pair of KRK RP5 Rokits and save yourself about £50.
