AktiMate Mini+ B
Released in November 2014 this system continues to remain one of the most popular of the AktiMate range. It provides 2 x RCA inputs (L&R) which are ideal for connecting a CD player, tuner, or other line level source. The AUX 3.5mm socket is ideal for connecting to a computer sound card, AirPort Express, or any other type of MP3 player. There is also an RCA out option, making this ideal for the connection of multiple pairs of AktiMates.
It features the addition of a USB 24bit/96kHz maximum sampling rate for PC use connection, a subwoofer out and Bluetooth 4.0. The iPod dock has been removed. It should be noted that the USB input on the AktiMate Mini+ B is for use with a PC only. It does not accommodate an MP3 player (you would use the 3.5mm line in option), nor does it accommodate a USB stick.
Cosmetically it features the new look aluminium tweeter ring which identifies the Bluetooth range of products from AktiMate.
The AktiMate Mini+ B is an ideal TV speaker. Connection is simple using one of the RCA inputs. Alternatively it is possible to use the 3.5mm into a headphone out on your TV. Input selection is either by remote control or by use of the control knob on the front of the speaker. The selection operates on a cycle -
The control knob has two functions -
It is possible to run multiple pairs of Aktimate Mini+ B speakers with an RCA stereo cable. Simply connect between the Aux RCA output of the master pair and one of the aux RCA inputs of the second pair. The source connected to the first pair will then play simultaneously through the second pair. The volume can be controlled by the master volume, but the level can then be increased on the slave pair(s) to suit the conditions in that location.
The newly designed remote control is a joy to use -
The Mini+ B in addition to a number of connection cables also comes complete with speaker wire, so you can literally unpack, connect the speakers, connect to mains power, switch on, select Bluetooth, pair with your device and you are listening to your favourite music through superb hi-
