QUITE POSSIBLY THE PERFECT PORTABLE SOUND SYSTEM

MINIRIG IS A TRUE TALE OF DAVID AND GOLIATH ; A SMALL AND FIERCELY INDEPENDENT AUDIO BRAND , INSPIRED BY THE BRISTOL SOUNDSYSTEM CULTURE , TAKING ON , AND BEATING , THE BIGGEST PORTABLE AUDIO BRANDS ON THE MARKET .
Still proudly based in Bristol , Minirig has grown a cult following based largely on wordof-mouth recommendation . Their amazing bluetooth speakers are now in demand around the world thanks to a best-in-class battery life of up to 50 hours and a well-deserved reputation as the loudest speakers of their size on the market . However , the Minirig Bluetooth speaker is not just incredibly loud . An adaptive audio filter ensures that a Minirig delivers a clean sound , free of distortion , whatever the volume .
Minirig bluetooth speakers are designed and hand-built in Britain from high quality components . Their minimal styling looks great , but don ’ t be fooled , these speakers are as tough as they come ! They are built from strong , anodised aluminium and textured polycarbonate and are water resistant up to an IPX4 rating . This makes Minirigs perfect for travelling , festivals , camping or any outdoor activity .
Respected UK consumer tech site , Techradar , awarded the Minirig 5 stars and Editor ’ s Choice as ‘ the best portable wireless speaker around ’, while influential US site Techaeris said Minirigs were ‘ the loudest and smallest speakers I ’ ve used … every form of music sounds amazing .' After testing out the Minirig speakers for ourselves we would have to agree – for their size , they deliver an incredible performance on all levels .
Another key area where Minirig stands apart from the competition is in its modular design . It is simple to connect two Minirigs together via bluetooth to create stereo sound . However , it doesn ’ t end there .
Minirig have also designed the world ’ s smallest , powered portable subwoofer . When connected with two Minirigs this creates a full 2.1 stereo sound , which delivers a huge sound and incredibly powerful bass . This full system would be enough to provide the sound for a large house party , yet is still completely portable , fitting easily into a small rucksack .
