What is the Bluetooth Minirig Portable Speaker? It is one of the most sought after products with its equal competitors, the Sony X505 and the B&W Zeppelin. It was a simple little portable speaker which already has more personality than a lot of its rivals. Now, it’s back, and to keep up with the modern times, it has been implanted with Bluetooth technology. But can this simple addition even make this already great portable speaker an even greater unit?
Can The Bluetooth Minirig Portable Speaker More of a Challenge Now?
Just like the old Minirig, the Bluetooth Minirig Portable Speaker ups the ante with its newest feature. It starts to assault you with its winning design. It has a simple cylindrical architecture which is very charming. It is all backed up with a very solid build quality.
The main cylindrical speaker is available in a range of colors. It is also made with thick aluminum and is capped by tough plastic on one end, and a thick aluminum speaker grille at the other side. It feels like it can survive just about anything you throw at it, even a fall from a moderate height.
One key feature of the new Minirig Portable Speaker with regards to its design is it uses a single driver. This means that it can only blast out mono audio. But don’t let that get you down; the company outfitted their device with a 3-inch driver for a unit that’s only 4-inches across by 3.75-inches deep. This means that it can dish out pretty powerful sound despite its miniature looks.
This design approach also means another bonus to be added into the mix – better audio quality. It can generate great audio when watching video on a laptop or other events wherein you have to sit directly in front of the speaker. However, it does offer decent performance for other purposes such as camping, and partying in a hotel room, or even playing music in a fairly large room.
Below the speaker lies the rest of the device’s electronics. This includes the battery, in which it is rated to last about a whopping 50-hours when playing on a low volume, and roughly 10-hours when playing on max. Average use will grant you about 30-hours of battery life.
While the Bluetooth Minirig Portable Speaker may only pack a single driver, it can certainly blow away the competition when it comes to sound quality. It also packs an array of features to make it as versatile as it is compact. It is also built to last for a good long while on a single battery charge.
