The judgment of sound quality depends on person to person, but I feel that the Home Mini gives a good sound quality and you will not disappoint with the sound output of the speakers. I have tested various levels of volumes and I never find any difficulties to hear or get the feel of the music. Having said that, don’t expect the pitches at 360-degrees.
