What he's not telling us is that he went to get a mini rig but was overruled by the missus...

The minirig was twice the price and (at the time) didn't even have Bluetooth.

The Sony is doing the job just fine so far. I'm rather pleased with it. The battery hasn't ran out on me yet but I keep it on charge when not in use and only really use it when its sunny and I'm out in the garden.

Neither devices actually do what I originally wanted in the original post anyway. I wanted WiFi really.

A Minirig doesn't cost £160. You can nearly get 2 for that.

The bluetooth one is about £150. I don't really see how a bit of wire is a £50 inconvenience though to be honest.

What's the bass like on the Minirig? Trying to decide between this, the Bose Soundlink Mini and the Cambridge Audio Go V2. I have obviously noted all the pro Minirig posts but wondering how it'll perform without the sub.

It is if you actually want to use your ipad

Very decent, especially if in a corner. Not sure how it compares to the others though

@Mini sub owners.
 
Anyone encountered an imbalance with the bass when using a rig and a sub together? Maybe it's the acoustics of the room, or a connection problem, but the bass is overbearing on the track.
 
It's the same kind of sound that you get if you had it set up on low gain.

I use my Bose Soundlnk II every day, makes a half decent soundbar for my TV / laptop.

It's so bass heavy you can't really rinse it, but at normal volumes it's brilliant.

You sure the sub isn't on high gain when the rigs are on low gain?

If not, I find it can generally be fixed by moving the sub away from any walls/room corners to lessen the amplification of the sound. Same works a treat the other way round when you want it a bit more booming as well.

Wanted a Ue Boom II but missed out when it was 85 at Christmas. Settled for JBL Flip 3 when that got reduced recently, which I'm pretty pleased with. It needs a case to protect the woofers. Fucking loud, still.

That's the main reason I did go for the mega boom when I missed out on the other deal. Its too heavy for what I wanted it for. The Bose is ok but not bassy enough. I fucked about too much at Christmas looking at deals lol

Nice. Mine is number 115 by the looks of it (also bought on release) and still going strong. Still, strongly tempted by this new badboy.

I've enjoyed watching the rise of the Minirig. They definitely deserve the success they're having.

All about the minirig link up a few years back at Bangface, think it ended up being about 20 minirigs and 3-4 subs. Was actually pretty damn loud.
