5.0 out of 5 stars A very high quality and capable portable speaker, 11 Dec. 2011
By 
This review is from: MINIRIG Portable rechargeable speaker (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The minirig is a game changing portable speaker. It's light weight, superbly designed and is wonderfully focused on what it's supposed to do - that is, play music well and without fuss. About that focus... there's no on/off switch or volume control, you just plug in the supplied 3.5mm jack-to-jack lead to the minirig and your iPhone/pod/phone/pc... and away you go. I use the low-gain (bottom) input for all my sources. The tonal quality of the reproduction is frankly amazing for such a small unit, there's no compromise of any parts of the audible spectrum and as such the minirig doesn't behave as if it's covering up flaws in its response, it's faithful all the way to the practical limits of the size of the speaker. I love the fact that it's monaural too, there's no benefit from having stereo speakers in a compact unit and the fact that you can easily get your friends second minirig _and_ move them apart for good stereo reproduction makes 100% sense. Some people may criticise the lack of airtunes or bluetooth but the fact that the minirig uses a cable means it's compatible with everything and works without dropouts etc. Having used my minirig for a week I'm happy to say I've no longer any hankering for a bose sounddock, this little device will do quite nicely. Finally, I've found that placing the minirig about a foot from the corner of two walls fills a room nicely with luscious sound.

would love to see this head to head with the bose soundlink.

Have heard the bose sound dock but not the minirig. It gets loud and has a good clean sound to it. Quite a lot of low end too or at least midbass punch but it's not overly muddy. It is quite a bit bigger than the minirig though so I'd expect the bass to be better on the bose. I'd like a bit more top end sparkle, and the ability to reduce the bass if using in a shared building at night.

I heard another ipod dock (not sure what make, white, curved, grey fabric speakers on either side, couldn't find it on google images unfortunately). Got loud, didn't have the cleanness of sound or bass extension of the bose but not bad overall. I'd like to compare that with the minirig if i could justify spending £90 on a portable speaker.
