    Hi all

    I use my iPad 2 to listen to a lot of podcasts using Downcast. I'm potentially going to replace this and was wondering out of the iPad Mini and iPad with Retina Display which has the loudest speaker(s)?

    Many thanks

    iPad 4's speakers are pretty loud, mini is slightly softer or equally as loud. Keep in mind the mini has stereo speakers, i could hear more bass coming from it as compared to the ipad 4

    If this is your only reason to replace your iPad then you could consider buying a BT/Airplay speaker instead.

    I really don't understand the point of having stereo speakers that are two centimeters apart.

    I believe Apple was right to not even mention it because it just doesn't matter.

    Between the two, I feel like my ipad 4 speaker is louder than the mini. They seem to sound about the same aside from that.

    The mini stereo speakers are "clearer", but not as loud as the iPad 4, or 3 for that matter...

    The loudest iPad is the 4th gen without a doubt. The mini may have stereo speakers, but that's completely null and void due to the fact that they're side by side.
