Minx Air Technology

Instantly connect any phone, tablet or computer

  • AirPlay – Apple's wi-fi streaming technology means you can seamlessly play high-quality audio from your iPhone, iPad or iTunes.
  • Bluetooth – Stereo Bluetooth is found in almost every smartphone, tablet and computer – so as long as your device is within range – up-to 10m - wireless high-quality audio streaming is easy. As well as the Standard Bluetooth Codec (SBC), Minx Air supports two higher-quality systems which means you can get the best possible results from your Bluetooth device.
  • Minx Air's inbuilt apt-X support squeezes the absolute maximum digital detail out of Bluetooth wireless streaming audio, if your device supports it, for CD-quality playback of high-bitrate digital audio files.
  • Minx Air’s Bluetooth function also supports AAC audio files for enhanced-quality transmission. AAC is a widely used digital file format and is the default or standard audio format for YouTube, iPhone, iPod, iPad, Nintendo DSi, iTunes. It’s supported by many manufacturers and devices including Apple, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, BlackBerry, as well as several Android device manufacturers

A wealth of audio technologies –

  • Powerful digital amplifiers deliver enormous power from small, efficient designs
  • waves-logoDigital signal processing using advanced technology developed for music and movie production allows us to get the biggest sound possible from Minx Air’s compact enclosure. The results are truly amazing and you’ll experience sound that’s louder, crisper and fuller than other portable systems
  • On board Digital to Analogue converters squeeze maximum detail from digital files before carefully processing them into the sounds you hear
  • Patented BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) speaker drivers deliver a wider, more room-filling sound than similarly-sized traditional speakers. Regular speakers – like you’ll find in other portable systems – move in and out to create sound. Our BMR speakers also create sound using horizontal vibration modes for a much wider sound which is hugely beneficial when speakers are located so closely together.   
  • Acoustically damped construction – Minx Air’s subtle design conceals a host of neat features to maximise the quality of your music. Beneath the scratch resistant high gloss lacquer, Minx Air’s acoustically damped cabinet is designed to eliminate vibration and distortion – even at high volumes. Look closely and you’ll see that we’ve also it incorporated a bass port within the carry handle.

  • Streaming music apps and services – Bring Minx Air's stunning, superior audio quality to your favourite music apps and streaming services via your smartphone, tablet or computer. Listen to popular services including Last.fm, Spotify or BBC iPlayer Radio.
  • Internet radio – Enjoy all your favourite stations at the touch of a button in crisp, digital quality. Use the 5 presets on Minx Air to access your favourites without the need for your phone or tablet.

    You can also discover new stations from around the world in seconds. Just tap our free Minx Air app on your phone or tablet, search by genre or location and you're connected - Apple and Android versions available. 10 presets are available on your app and these are automatically copied across to Minx Air apps on your other phones or tablets.
  • Wired connections – RCA analogue stereo in means you can also plug your TV, Blu-ray player or other home entertainment devices easily in to Minx Air to experience its superb sound quality.
  • Gaming – if you play games on your laptop, phone or tablet, you’ll know how lousy the sound can be. But now you can send the audio over to Minx Air and hear all the bangs, crashes and effects in the most amazing detail

 

How does BMR speaker technology work?

Pistonic speaker driver
A normal speaker works like a piston - back and forth. Sure has the ability to sound great, but requires separate woofer / tweeter to cover mid-bass / high frequencies properly. (Not ideal when space is limited.) 
 
Flat panel speakers
A flat panel driver design uses vibrational modes to create sound across a smaller surface area but this design suffers from limited frequency range. It simply can't deliver the bass notes you need for true musical pleasure.  
 
BMR speaker technology
The patented BMRTM driver technology we use in Minx Air combines pistonic action (to enable lower frequency response than flat panel) and vibrational modes in one drive unit. Benefits of BMR include wide frequency response from one driver, slimline design (ideal for applications where space is limited) and wider dispersion than regular pistonic drivers.

"Compared to the Minx Air 200, most self-contained wireless sound systems are just toys. This elegant, understated speaker system from Cambridge Audio packs an impressive techno wallop…you have to ask yourself, do I want to play with a toy, or do I want to crank the tunes?"
