    AudioEngine 5 Vs Aktimate mini

    decided on either 1 of these, juz some query left before i head down tmr to uncle jimmy's shop in adelphi.

    i know many pple said tat Aktimate mini sound quality > AE5

    tat said,
    AE5 = 540
    mini = 880

    340 more...

    additional functions of mini compared to AE5 includes

    ipod docks
    remote control

    Question:
    im going to pair the AE5 with a W1, which adds up to 680 total.

    so my qns is does the Aktimate mini comes with Inbuilt wireless connections like the W1?
    and if not wha tis the speaker that u prefer...

    ur opinions are greatly appreciated.

    Thx in Advance.

    Aktimate is very good, I listened to it when I bought my A5, but priced so much more. So I decided to buy A5 then next time I want to add subwoofer S1 to it.
