Ultra compact speakers
The Minx series redefines what’s possible from speakers this size. Each unit is discrete in both stature and design, yet they all produce a huge sound normally only associated with much larger, traditional box speakers.
The Minx range is comprised of 4 different models: two satellite speakers, Min 12 and Min 22, and two subwoofers, X201 and X301. Each of the products work together harmoniously so you can pick a combination that suits your space, whether 2.1 or 5.1, and will sound perfectly matched.
Minx is finished to the highest possible standards in stunning white or black high gloss lacquers, using paint application techniques mastered in the premium car industry. Easy to clean, hard to scratch – Minx will look as good as it sounds for many years to come.
“Where space is tight, the miniscule Minx fits the bill and sounds fabulous”
“It seems inconceivable that such small cubes, which are virtually invisible when dotted around, can fill a room as easily as they do.”
“The power on offer from such diminutive speakers defies physics, while the thrilling dynamics, clear detail and punchy, potent bass create the illusion that there are much larger speakers in the room”
The Minx satellite speakers come in two sizes; the single driver Min 12 and the double driver Min 22. Both use BMR® speaker technology to produce an exceptionally wide sound dispersion but the Min 22 gives you more thanks to a secondary dedicated low frequency driver. This means you get even more power, control and responsiveness.
Unlike traditional pistonic or flat panel speakers, BMRs® drivers combine vertical and horizontal dispersion using Horizontal Vibration Modes. This means BMRs® can deliver a much wider sound stage and a truly room-filling performance.
They offer 180° dispersion so they’re easy to position and sound great wherever you are. This means there’s no specific sweet spot; instead they offer a coherent room filling sound no matter the shape and size of your space.
They’re capable of mid-range so they integrate beautifully with a subwoofer unlike most small satellite speakers. For more information on our unique BMR technology click here.
Complementing the satellites are two subwoofers, each packed with cutting-edge technology to maximise bass performance from the smallest cabinets possible. The 200 watt X201 and the 300 watt X301 subwoofers both feature forward firing drivers and Auxiliary Bass Radiators resulting in room shaking bass.
The two subs use an innovative driver plus an Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) system. This means that rather than having an enclosed box which would require even more power, or a ported design which would require a bigger cabinet we can achieve an extremely efficient and powerful subwoofer housed in a tiny cabinet.
Both subs feature a range of simple controls like volume and crossover frequency, to enable you to place them anywhere and match with any system. They also feature an energy saving ‘auto-on’ mode which automatically turns the subwoofer on when a signal is sensed, meaning it doesn’t have to be left on wasting electricity.
Our software engineers have designed a sophisticated Digital Signal Processor (DSP) to provide real-time control of equalisation and dynamic range. This allows the X201 to handle more power and play louder than ever!
Minx satellite speakers can be mounted a number of different ways. They can sit on any surface or be mounted on adjustable floorstands, discrete table stands or pivoting wall mount brackets. So there’s always a practical way of integrating the Minx speakers into your home.
"With eyes closed, nobody would believe that loudspeakers are playing and are barely larger than a can of cola... after having lived with the Min21 and X300 I can report to you that the Min21’s sound even better than the already excellently performing Min20’s."

Minx makes it on T3's Greatest Gadgets Ever list! "It seems inconceivable that such small cubes, which are virtually invisible when dotted around, can fill a room as easily as they do."
"Jamo and Tannoy have already set the bar very high in the compact speaker system market, but Cambridge Audio’s Minx S315 sails right over it. The power on offer from such diminutive speakers defies physics, while the thrilling dynamics, clear detail and punchy, potent bass create the illusion that there are much larger speakers in the room."
"...ideal for kitting out even the smallest pad with big-room sound. A smart way to get kick-arse audio for films and music!"

"Minx doesn't just fit into a room, it melts into it - you may need a magnifying glass to even find its cute cubular boxes."

"Clean, dynamic and exceptionally crisp sound that lacks any signs of aggressiveness or discoloration - many bigger speakers would like to have such qualities."
"A system with great dynamics and depth that defy its small size. Perfect speakers for a discreet and efficient system."
“Well, Bose is about to get a sound thrashing from the British boys at Cambridge Audio, whose brand-new minx is even smaller than Acoustimass – especially the subwoofer – and simply better. Much, much better. I’ve listened to the two side by side, and the Bose by comparison sounds notably clumsy and muffled.”
