MINIRIG 2 Portable Rechargeable Bluetooth Speaker – 80 Hour Battery – Premium Stereo Sound – : Very good but overpriced.

For a small speaker which looks amazing the sound quality is unbelievable, with the added perk of taking this beautiful little device wherever you go, and being wireless of course. So far i’ve played music for 7 hours and battery is still going, i’ll be interested to see how long it lasts. Comes with all the cables/adapters you need, and a great little carry case to protect it.

Easy to set up and holds a decent charge.

Although quite expensive i was surprised at the quality of sound given by these boxes. My husband is a sound engineer and was equally impressed. I gave it as a present to my son ( 28) who is thrilled. Even without the subwoofer you can but separately, it’s loud and clear. Taken to a party and joined together with other minirigs you would be getting complaints from the neighbourswell made and easy to charge with an excellent battery life, i’d definitely recommend one to anyone and am thinking of buying one for the campervan myself.

4/5 stars, because of rather high price/sound quality. For example gelelec one with same price tag delivers better sound. Size and weight of the product is small compared to sound levels possible to achieve. Actually this portable speaker sounds best when its hanging somewhere several meters away. For this reason, product lacks any possibily to hang it to hook or similar. Now i had to use a fishing line which i tknot in the metal grid. Weakness of sound is the higher frequencies, lack of them and quality. However, generally the sound is hifi in mono way, similarities to old portable radios. There are some parts of the sound in lower frequencies, that are too heavy and makes overall sound nasal. This may come from small volume compared to speaker driver size.

  • The mighty Minirig
  • This product is unique and HIFI guys should try it
  • Highly recommend

They have a long battery life. Produce clear susinct crisp sound. If listening to an audiobook, take it with you round the house. It’s well designed and deserves an award if it has not already got one. Spoiled for which colour to get?.

These units are pricey but do produce an amazing volume and quality of sound for their size. I think it is a case where you really do get what you pay for. One thing is worth mentioning though. I bought two speakers and neither one produced a tone when switched on or off, and did not have any high gain when used on bluetooth mode, although they did when cabled together. I thought they were broken and was going to return them. However, it turns out that they could be made to function properly simply by following the “reset to factory default” procedure outlined in the online manual. This doesn’t take very long, as it just involves a sequence of button pushing. The point is that this should not have been necessary as they should already have been set correctly when they left the factory. This is particularly true as the manual is not supplied with the speaker so you would be unaware of the solution unless you went onto the minirig website and downloaded the manual, or contacted customer support by email. In the meantime i can guarantee you would be damn annoyedi only mention it in case anyone else finds the same issue, or gets one as a present and doesn’t know what to do.

I really liked this speaker. Great quality sound for the size and weight. Extremely portable and great looks. Base ok, perhaps i had higher expectations here. Unfortunately it developed a fault with the bluetooth connection 2 weeks into use which i could not fix using every trick in the manual. First ever amazon product return, absolutely no fuss, great service. Now stuck deciding if i should buy again.

This speaker really is a stunning design. Build quality is noticeable as soon as you set eyes on it and pick it up. Luckily the sound quality is fantastic too. I bought two to use as a stereo pair and it really does the business – output is loud enough for a decent size room or outdoors, with great definition across the range. I’ve been using it via blue-tooth so far, and it sounds great – i expect it to somehow be even better when using cables. A pair of speakers link up wirelessly in stereo, and if you use just a single speaker you can connect two media devices to it via bluetooth. You can even charge your phone from the speaker. Highly recommended, even if it is a little on the pricey size, but you do get what you pay for.

Feels great supporting small local business but also feels good buying something that works incredibly well. So simple and small and great sound. Love the case and everything about it really.

Incredibly and very pleasantly surprised with the audio and build quality of this product. For a 3inch driver, this bad boy can put out some serious volume levels, while still retaining it’s audio quality at higher volumes. Battery life is really good. Bluetooth setup was a two second job. I use this with my friends, in my car, while out and about and i couldn’t be more happy, going to get the full 2:1 set up, even if you’re looking to purchase a single speaker, it’s still a 5/5, and i would recommend this to anyone looking at purchasing one/full set up.

Battery lasts ages, charges my phone, super light sounds great and links up to other people’s rigsbest mini speaker i’ve found yet.

The sound from this device is astonishingly good. The first thing i listened to is jimi hendrix new release ‘machine gun’ produced by jimi’s old engineer/producer, eddie kramer. And a damn fine job he’s done too.I bought the 24 bit flac version and hooked up my pono player to my new minirig. Verdict: the minirig is as good as it gets for a portable speaker. Alternative verdict: the minirig is simply the dog’s gonads of portable speakers. It doesn’t matter how you put it, if you’re after a portable speaker, get one. Go on, go to the order page.

Mine was faulty but it did feel very solid and well made. Sadly though i felt it was very much overpriced and for another £10 pounds i could have bought a bose soundlink mini, although in gold this was the more attractive item.

Well built and finished, and great sound and volume when plugged in with 3. The product i received however was much quieter when using bluetooth and the volume band change function didn’t work at all. Additionally the volume was very variable depending on the device you were pairing to. Maybe i was just unfortunate with this product which was faulty and not really representative. I returned the unit to amazon with no fuss, great service and got a quick refund back to my credit card. Now my wife is deciding whether to go again for another minirig or a sony speaker which has caught her eye.

Fabulous product, arrived swiftly and has an amazing battery not to mention it’s gold.

  1. This review is from : MINIRIG 2 Portable Rechargeable Bluetooth Speaker – 80 Hour Battery – Premium Stereo Sound – Gold

    Everyone raves about these speakers. I’ve owned one for just over a year and i haven’t been impressed. I bought it directly from minirig in bristol. Firstly, the smart phone app (which minirig themselves describe as unstable) doesn’t work at all on my phone. I did manange to pair it with my laptop though. The default volume is supposed to be low gain, but my minirig’s default is high gain. Which means, when i turn it on the music is deafeningly loud unless i’m careful to connect it without playing music, then press the led button to reset it to low gain, every time i use it. I emailed minirig and they said there’s nothing i can do about this. Incidentally, their costomer service is not great.

    • Stopped working after 2 weeks it ran out of battery so recharged it overnight, the light comes on when i plug the aux in but it doesn’t play any audio pretty poor considering i’ve had it 2 weeks and only used a handful of times.
