These might be a great set of 'computer speakers' though I haven't heard them.



I found the HomePod to be a little bass heavy though some here don't agree.

Speakers have been my catnip, and I've got to start offing some of them.

The small footprint of the HomePod minis is attractive, and though the Siri/digital assistant aspect is still lacking, in my experience, these might be worth a look/listen.

On sale 9/4/21 through 9/7/21, while supplies last.

I don't know if they're online only or available at the stores as well.

Anybody have any actual experience with the minis, solo or stereo?

For $149, you can find some much better "computer speakers". I've heard them. They sound good, for their size... HomePods are basically small computers with a speaker attached.

Or a soundbar/sub with an Aux In and Bluetooth for other devices?

EDIT: I have a 5.1 system in the living room, hooked to my RokuTV for Internet Audio, it has Bluetooth for AppleMusic from my phone.

I have a Soundbar hooked to the TV Bedroom and has BT for AppleMusic from my phone as well.

In my office I have a JBL Bluetooth Speaker (mono) which also sounds pretty dang good for its size. It a battery powered, and good for about 40 hours of playback at indoor volume, at least 6 hours at outdoor volume when I take it to the yard, last I tested. It charges in 8 hours on a low power iPhone USB charger, much faster on an iPad Charger.
