Mini & Micro Systems

Mini and Micro systems are an excellent alternative to a full size stereo system. Where in a traditional Hi-Fi setup, you would need to have each device as a separate unit (Amplifier, CD player, DAB Tuner, Network Streamer, Bluetooth receiver etc), Mini and Micro systems combine many of these features along with a decent amplifier to power some small speakers, making them ideal for a compact living environment, or a basic system with moderate power and bucket loads of features.

Some of the Mini and Micro systems come with their own speakers from the manufacturer, in some other cases, just the main unit is provided and you would have to purchase speakers separately.

Mini and Micro systems usually will not match the sound quality and power of a full sized traditional Hi-Fi setup, but it will come close enough that, in many cases, you won't feel like you are missing out on anything.

Many Mini and Micro Systems will have network streaming capabilities on board, and by extension, Apple AirPlay, DLNA Streaming, Spotify Connect, and Internet Radio. Some of them even support high resolution audio. Some units will have bluetooth on board as well (or as an alternative), and will allow you to connect with any bluetooth enabled device to stream audio. It is also not uncommon to see auxiliary analog inputs (3.5mm jack, or RCA Stereo), which will give you a way to connect a basic turntable to the compact stereo systems. Sometimes Toslink Digital inputs, or Coaxial digital inputs are included to connect devices such as a television to the Mini or Micro System.

Most Mini and Micro Systems will include a DAB+ Digital Radio tuner on board, as well as an FM receiver. AM receivers are usually left out, but many AM stations are rebroadcast on either DAB+ or Internet Radio, usually in higher quality.
