Getting straight down to it, if you want reasonable (‘reasonable’ at this size is an amazing achievement) sound quality in a tiny and well built package this is by far your best option. You have to pay a lot for it though. Its really annoying it doesn’t have a mini usb port so you need to use the cable. Strangely there is a usb port that you can charge it from under the rubber on the base. But you have to take the rubber off to get to it and it isn’t very well sealed so decided against it.
Proud purchase of fantastic bristol product. Fantastic sound and build quality – great engineering (i can imagine brunel tapping his toe, nodding his head and smoking a big stoogie whilst listening to one their mixes). Worked straight from box with no need for a manual. Website great too (in case i lose my charging-lead or wish to buy some more). Look no further for the perfect (expandable) portable system.
Pretty good sound for such a small speaker. Could do with an included case and definitely the proprietary lead is a very poor choice – should be usb c. App ui is child like in design.
I would describe myself as someone who has tried a load of different wireless audio products. I was not sure what to expect with the minirig mini. I got two of the units and paired them up and immediately was astounded by the clarity and energetic sound these little units produce. I asked my wife what magic is this?.Even she took a double take listening to emilie sandie’s clown track. I am now flogging my apple homepod as it does not even match two of the minirigs in a pair. Wireless audio has finally matured.
Picked up a pair of minirig mini’s last week, after a solid week testing i wholeheartedly recommend these to anyone looking for superb quality (and loud) audio in a robust and portable package. I have the original minirigs also which when released were the best small speakers around – this latest version knocks them into a cocked hatthrilled to bits with them, well done minirigs, well doneget one now here: http://amzn.
Arrived quickly, charged and ready to go. Bought this as my other regular size minirig is non bluetooth and i’ve had enough of cables. The new mini version is much smaller but the sound quality and volume capability is excellent, on a par with the standard size somehow. Certainly loads more portable too. Very happy with my purchase.
Hubby was delighted with this speaker and now uses it everytime we drove somewhere to play radio 6 through his phone.
Class leading sound, exceptional mid range clarity with good enough bass to make a full bodied sound. The good thing is that you can add another minirig and a minirig subwoofer to make a full 2. 1 stereo system which will beat any other bluetooth speaker (of any size) in the market, not just for the sound quality, loudness and looks, but also for the price. First i bought a minirig 3, got so impressed that bought a second minirig 3, have ordered a minirig subwoofer also, and then to carry around with me in my bag, i bought a minirig mini also. And as you can see from the photo, i have a bose soundlink mini 2 also. This minirig mini which is half the size of bose, sounds twice as good and twice as loud. I have almost stpped using bose. If you are thinking of buying a pocket size speaker, perhaps thinking of the ‘highly rated’ bose soundlink micro or a b&o speaker etc. Just stop and buy this minirig mini. Bose micro and others sound cheap and tiny in front of this little speaker.
Great speaker, unfortunately didn’t come with a case 😔.
This is the second minirig we have owned. The first was bought nearly four years ago and is still going strong after heavy use for most of that time. This model is a decent bit smaller but as with the previous model, sound quality and volume are both fantastic. Bluetooth capability and an on/off switch just make it even better.Hands down the best portable speakers i know of.
Great little speaker offering the same sound quality of the larger minirig, with just a bit less bass and maximum volume, but the mini still goes amazingly loud, then when you consider how much more portable the mini is, it really is impressive. I’ve just ordered a second one so i can run them in stereo. Now i just hope they make a matching mini sub.
What an amazing little thing. I am a bit of a fan of portable music devices and was looking for something stronger than the already good but cheap device i used up to this point. I was skeptical because of the high price compared to the big advertised bose product, which is equally priced. But please bose, go homethe minirig is so much better in absolute every aspect. It starts off with high quality materials and an amazing design. It comes in a strong and save box. It immediately pairs to the bluetooth with absolutely no waiting time. The sound is so full and easily covers a whole room. The bass can be felt through the floor eventhough it’s such a small device. I really feel the urge to try out every single song on my playlist to compare my past sound experience to the minirig.
Excellent product – very impressed with quality.
Great product, tip use the updater and beta apps for android.
Exceptional sound for the size, looks good and is compact.
Wicked mini sound system, a crisp, clean and bassy sound, surprisingly very loud for its size. It would make a great gift for any music lover. Easy set up with bluetooth, cool colour.
Well, having read all of the glowing reviews here and on youtube. And being a serial bluetooth speaker purchaser (25 and counting) i had to have one. £100 is not cheap for something the size of a small baked bean tin that’s for sure but let me tell you, it’s worth every penny. The money i have wasted on speculative inexpensive bluetooth speaker purchases that were sonic letdowns in the past makes this a positive bargain. It sounds incredible for it’s size. Treble and midrange is crisp and clear but never coarse, even at full volume. It’s surprisingly analytical which leads me to believe there’s very little dsp at work, just a great amplifier and a superb driver. Bass is tight and goes deeper than you have any right to expect. It’s better with sustained bass rather than beat driven bass but then that could be said of much bigger speakers too. There is a little dsp at work as the bass stays full as you reduce volume but that just leads to a pleasant listening experience even when family members tell you to turn it down.
For its size and transportability – super sound.
Have bought other – cheaper – speakers of this sort. They sounded crap and fell to pieces. The minirig is the best pur hase i ever made. Built like a tank, and the sound is immense. My g/f (who usually pays no attention to such things) is amazed and says it sounds as good as, or better than, our hi-fi. I cannot recommend one of these too highly. Works great on bluetooth or with lead supplied. It will henceforth be my constant companion. If you love music and quality sound you will adore this.
The best sounding mini bt speaker out there. Astonishing sound for its size. Just took it away on an easyjet cabin luggage only flight. Perfect for the hotel room for 5 days. Still had charge when we returned. Much clearer and more portable than my cambridge audio minx go. Be aware though that the ios app is still being developed properly and at time of writing doesn’t work properly.
Possibly the best bluetooth speaker on the market.
