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.
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.
Possibly the best bluetooth speaker on the market.
Hubby was delighted with this speaker and now uses it everytime we drove somewhere to play radio 6 through his phone.
The minirig mini is simply mind-blowing . How they achieve such big sound from such a small device is unreal. I travel extensively so have tried many portable bluetooth speakers over the years – nothing comes close to the mini.
Exceptional sound for the size, looks good and is compact.
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.
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.
Sound is more than adequate for the size of this thing.
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.
Great product, tip use the updater and beta apps for android.
Great piece of kit, easy to set up, and the sound quality is glorious.
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.
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.
Great speaker, unfortunately didn’t come with a case 😔.
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.
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.
Excellent product – very impressed with quality.
Simply the best in its size category.
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.
Using the audio cable provided with the minirig, i connected it to an old personal cd player that i have had for years.
