About this deal

For more information - including help on how to block cookies on our site - please find In privacy policy. Europe's busiest forums, with independent news and expert reviews, for TVs, Home Cinema, Hi-Fi, Movies, Gaming, Tech and more. Optional wall mount, floor stands, or desk stands offer complete control of placement making for a better home audio or cinematic listening experience. Our software engineers have designed a sophisticated Digital Signal Processor to provide real-time control of equalisation and dynamic range.

Understated design ensures that no matter your interior décor style, a Minx S212 speaker system will always look at home. If your study’s packed with books, CDs and office equipment, you may struggle to fit bookshelf speakers in. After connecting the supplied wi-fi dongle and Bluetooth receiver I hit ‘standby’: the Minx springs to life, scanning for available wi-fi networks to choose from. Minx subwoofers use Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) speaker tech to pack a punch beyond their relatively compact size. Here you will find solid amplifiers, modern network streamers, CD players and their hugely popular DacMagic - which lifts the sound from your digital sources to new heights.Cambridge hasn’t refrained from striving to continually improve the Minx’s ability to portray that part of the spectrum with their BMR drivers now in their 4th generation. Some might be pushing things to a level beyond that which I need - which is great and in an ideal world I'd seriously consider - but in a far-from-ideal room and competing priorities I must remain sensible. This means you don’t have to fiddle around to switch it on, nor worry about turning it off when your movie or playlist has finished playing.

BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers, so that the MIN12 satellites won't turn harsh or brittle when the music or film action gets intense.

If using an AVR, the speakers should be set to ‘small’ while Cambridge suggests a crossover frequency of 140Hz to increase power handling. In its present setup version though, your PC has to first connect to the speaker’s own WiFi network, via a supplied IP address typed in a browser.X301’s auto-on mode powers it up when an AV signal’s detected – so there’s no forgetting to switch it on, nor worry about turning it off when the film’s finished. A recessed screw fitting accepts the supplied flush wall bracket, or any of our dedicated accessories. Minx Min 22 have proper speaker cable connectors (binding posts) and come with banana plugs for quick installation.

Each also comes with its own wall mounts and tilting wall-mounts, table-top stands (see above) and floorstands are all available as optional extras.

Min 22 can be fitted horizontally – ideal if you need to place it under a TV as a centre dialogue speaker. So, provided you can find a suitable place in which to seat the Minx TV, it will reward you with some surprisingly rich and punchy audio that shows a good adeptness across its nominated disciplines. Digitally, the Minx streams a wide array of audio formats, including FLAC, ALAC, AIFF and WAV via UPnP, although bit depth and sample rate are limited to 24-bit and 96kHz respectively. And speaking of bass, the Minx is engineered with plenty of it, and hearing such fulsome lows from the little Qs suggests that the Minx is designed to get the most out of smaller/budget speakers in the lower registers. For those just starting out on their hi-fi journey, the Minx is an amazing value introduction into what ‘proper’ hi-fi sounds like.
