AudioEngine 5 Vs Aktimate mini technub Mar 1st, 10, 07:15 PM #1

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.
