I knew being a mini rig that this was going be to loud but ohhhh jeeeez i wasn’t expecting it to be that loud.
It was really well packaged and turned on straight away so i could use it – which is simple, you just connect via bluetooth. The unit itself is sturdy and solid but not heavy, and it’s the perfect size to take places with you. It’s even got packaging you can reuse to protect it. As for the really important part – the sound is fantastic, especially for such a small device. I know several people who’ve got one of these now and they all agree. Great to see a small bristol-based company making such high quality products.
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. Here are the specifications for the MINIRIG MINI Portable Rechargeable Bluetooth Speaker – 30 Hour Battery – Premium Stereo Sound –:

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.
Just check reviews on youtube.
Reviews from purchasers :
- UK quality and service.
- Most amazing product I bought in recent years
- Fantastic sound quality, coolest thing I’ve bought for years!
I recently stayed with a friend who has one, and as soon as i came home i bought one. The sound is amazing, it’s really simple to set up and very solid. Wouldn’t recommend this, but my friend’s one has had beer spilt over it and still works fine. Great for travelling, but the quality’s so good i’ll mainly be using it like a proper speaker in the bedroom. The best thing about them is the bass, and you can play them loud with next to no distortion. Uk designed, really good value for money. Get one, you won’t regret 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.
Sound is probably the best for this size of portable speakers. Application is very usefull. Very nice sound at low volume levels. Full reach bass and trebles with mids. At higher volume less bass but still very loud and not distorted. Battery at low volume is cca few days of usage 1-2hrs play.
Using the audio cable provided with the minirig, i connected it to an old personal cd player that i have had for years.
I read some glowing reviews which made me convince to order one from uk and now that i have it it almost defies belief (and physics) what this speaker is capable of. A friend of mine visited me and together we tested it against several of our other speakers and couldn’t believe our ears. Yes, bigger speakers like a jbl flip 4 or bose soundlink revolve+ may get a tad louder but the soundstage the minirig mini produces is nothing short of amazing and deserves 10 stars. It’s soo much ahead of the competition that it even makes the similarly sized bose soundlink micro sound like a toy (which is still the second best ultra portable speaker on the market though and has other advantages like fully water resistant and a handy mount strap). I use the minirig mini for listening to audio books and quiet piano music when going to bed and will sure take it on my next holiday since it’s small but loud enough to fill an entire hotel room and should easily surpass any hotel tv in audio quality too (not sure if i should ever take it on the beach though since it’s only splashproof)there’s no ios app released yet and the android app has a few glitches (and still no documentation available either, what does ‘eq lock’ do??) but in the few days since i got it a new version already fixed some bugs and i’m hopeful the company won’t sleep on their laurels and continue to improve on an already incredible product in the foreseeable future. I wish there was an option to switch off the superfluous led light althogether (i can check the battery level in the app anytime) because even when dimmed in the app settings it’s still annoying in an otherwise dark room.
I’ve had one of the first gen mini rigs for a few years now and it’s never let me down on quality or durability, and i was not let down at all by the new mini mini, same banging sound quality and i can chuck it wherever i want now that they made these ones bluetooth too. Always recommend mini rigs to people i meet and will continue with this one.
For its size and transportability – super sound.
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.
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.
On par with similarly priced bluetooth speakers, if not better. Has strong and deep bass, and a balanced hifi tuning. Battery life is long and allows for a full day of medium loudness listening. Easily pairs to multiple devices, and has an android app for additional eq tuning and quality of life tweaks. Customer support is second to none, the uk based firm responds quickly to customer issues and offers satisfactory resolutions. Would recommend as a good speaker with great support.
I absolutely love my minirig mini, every time i bring it to a bbq or festival everyone is so impressed how loud it is and how great the base is for such a small speaker. I previously had the standard mini rig which is also great but this one is smaller so even better for squeezing in carry on luggage. I use it to enhance the sound on my ipad when watching movies too. I really want to get the subwoofer now and create a huge minirig sound system.The industrial design is pretty cool too, looks nicer than the other generic looking speakers. Battery seems to go on forever too, you can still connect it while it’s charging anyway.
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.
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.
I absolutely love this speaker. The sound is dynamic and exciting, which is something i’ve never experienced with a small portable speaker. It’s really clear, impressively full and very loud. The build quality is first class and i really like the simplicity – auto connecting to bluetooth for one thing is a great little detail. Battery life very impressive. All in all i’m totally happy with this speaker and will definitely be adding to the range.
Sound is more than adequate for the size of this thing.
