Everything is relative, so when we call this the Mini T, it's really only "mini" when compared to the rest of the T lineup. That said, it's still a shelf/stand model. When atop a Target MR stand with our custom plates, the Mini T's performance is really more like that of a great floorstander. Bass is prodigious, dynamics are vast. imaging is beyond comprehension and it's clear as a bell. The Mini T is a frequent star of our hi-fi shows and never ceases to amaze both the audience and us! As a direct descendent of the Model T, you should expect nothing less.
