Top critical review
On audio quality alone it's fantastic, but other frustrating issues really hold it back.

This speaker sounds amazing, especially for its size. It may be tempting to balk at the price, but for a speaker nearing $200, it really doesn't disappoint on audio quality. It may be a tad bass-heavy, but I know a lot of people like that. Some sort of companion software with equalizer settings would have been nice. There's no integration with Razer Synapse, or anything like that.
My only gripe is that sometimes the audio will begin studdering, an experience akin to watching an online video that's constantly buffering (absolutely un-listenable), only it's independent of internet or bluetooth connection and happens even with local audio. I've been able to determine that the Leviathan Mini is indeed the source of the issue, rather than the audio source. Simply turning the Leviathan Mini on and off or disconnecting and reconnecting it from Bluetooth solves the issue for a while, but that's really not something that should be happening at all with a speaker of this quality and price, and it's extremely frustrating to have to take the time to reset it every so often when the audio gets screwed up.
This speaker also has a tendency to move around when playing music. I have it on a hard, flat surface and I seldom play anything super base-heavy, but none the less it's not uncommon for it to rotate itself about 45 degrees or move an inch or two if I leave music playing for an hour or so. Beware as this seems like it could push itself off the edge of a table or shelf if placed too close to the edge. Again, not a huge deal most of the time, but a major oversight on a premium product with this price tag.
