You'll be hard pressed to find something the Minx Xi can't upgrade the sound of, with its extensive suite of inputs.
Thanks to Bluetooth, it is possible to stream music from services such as Spotify straight to the Minx Xi in addition to being able to access over 20,000 Internet radio stations. So you'll always be able to find something new and interesting to listen to.
Connect the optional BT100 to wirelessly stream music from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, so you can enjoy music stored on your phone, hear your friend's latest download, or listen to your favourite music service. The BT100 is aptX ready, meaning you can enjoy high resolution streaming from supported devices.

“Most of my music lives in the digital domain. I use Spotify on my iPhone most of the time but like to playback higher quality music from the home network when I’ve got time to listen to an album properly. I also like to make my TV sound better and the brilliant thing about Minx Xi is that I can do all of this from just one box. It’s easy for anyone to use and looks superb too.”
"lf you are looking for a system to put in the study or fancy sticking a toe in streaming water, then the Minx Xi is an easy recommendation. lt has the same sonic limitations as you find with any budget amplifier, but the feature set is strong and ease of use very high...Well worth checking out."United Kingdom March 2014
