    Thanks for the tip. The mini rigs look like they are worth a little more, and are a cut above most brands

    Not so portable, but nevertheless on a trip to Amsterdam where it was vital to have great quality music I brought along Audio Engine 5 blue tooth self-powered speakers and they worked like a charm. As I recall I used the foam packing material they were delivered in. I had a little trouble at the airport, but other than that it worked like a charm and these are excellent speakers that rocked the house (actually it was a boat we rented for the week). It will blow the crap listed above out of the water. They sound great! I use them in my office to this day.
    The combined fortunes of the world's 26 richest individuals reached $1.4 trillion last year ó the same amount as the total wealth of the 3.8 billion poorest people.

    Methinks you will love them!

    The 2.2 set-up is a thing of wonder. Very, very impressive.
    Actually, you sold me. I just bought two subwoofers from a MINIRIG reseller today...can’t wait for it all to arrive! It means we’ll have kickass sound in every room of our two-bedroom condo...not to mention worn one or both of us travel. The 2.2 setup will really be great to have in Ireland, especially

    Thanks again for a great tip!

    I canít find the right thread for this, but rcarlberg, you said you use a Bluetooth receiver connected to your stereo - may I ask what kind? Is it one of the pretty inexpensive ones, or do you use something more high-end if that even exists. Maybe itíd be unnecessary.

    Received my MINIRIG 3s the other day (waiting on the subs). LOVE them, separately and, more, together. I don't really know if I'll need more bass but will use the lower volume connection to do it.

    Only drag is, it appears, that you cannot connect two MINIRIG 3 with two subs and connect to it via Aux. So, I'm using the bluetooth feature of my Cayin n5iis, and bought a small bluetooth transmitter so my wife can send music from her non-bluetooth OPUS #1S. I'm not sure of the capability of her transmitter to send high resolution, but it still sounds pretty darn fine.

    I am not sure I understand. Are you saying you want to use a wired connection from an AUX OUT of a device to a 2.2 system? If so, it is absolutely doable. You just need the proprietary stereo cable from Mini Rig. That connects from AUX OUT to the two ins of the subs and then one uses a standard stereo mini lug (supplied with your MR 3ís) to connect each speaker to its respective sub. Easy peasy and KILLER sound. (I use wired connections anytime I can for the better fidelity.)

    Please let me know if I misunderstood.
