"Stylish, High-Tech, and High-Quality Audio System"
Listening to music on your computer should be a truly satisfying experience. Minx M5 has been designed to reproduce every sound with clarity, emotion and passion. It excels with your digital audio, streaming services, Internet radio, movies and games, and more.
"The CRN Test Center recommends the M5 for anyone seeking a stylish, high-tech, and high-quality audio system for the desktop that's as versatile as it is convenient," reports Edward J. Correia in his August 5, 2013 review for CRN.com.
Minx 5 takes maximum advantage of Cambridge Audio's "Sound First" design principles. By focusing solely on the things that make music sound so good, and cutting out any extra cost and clutter, Cambridge delivers a superb-sounding, best-value small system.
It Starts with a Serious Subwoofer
The 7.9"-square powered subwoofer provides the cornerstone to the sonic excellence of this compact system. The sub contains the amplifier, all electronics, and connections for your devices. It's small enough to tuck just about anywhere, but with a 5.25" driver it sounds far larger as it adds richly detailed, bottom end bass to the satellite speakers.
Two neat satellite speakers with integrated stands provide smooth, clear mid-frequency and high-frequency response, complementing the low bass of the powered sub. The satellites are small and easy to position on a desk for great sound. Each satellite has a highly responsive 2" driver.
The Minx 5 system fills your room with music, allocating 2 x 15-watts of power to the satellites and 30-watts to the subwoofer. This is huge for a desktop system!
Desktop Connection Hub
Cambridge Audio thought of everything. The handy wired volume remote doubles as an easy-access connection hub. Plug in and easily switch between laptop and desktop computers via the USB connection that works with PCs and Macs. Also connect smartphones, tablets, and even your TV via the 3.5mm mini-plug input. There's also a handily placed headphone output for solo listening.
"The controller looks like an espresso-sized cup warmer," notes CRN.com. "But spinning this rubber-capped infinite potentiometer controls the speaker volume, and a press in the center wakes and sleeps the system."
It's All There
The Minx 5 comes with everything you need to get up and running, including a power cable, speaker cables, 3.5mm jack audio cable, USB cable, and integrated stands for the desktop satellite speakers.
It also boasts an eco-friendly design with uses less than a single watt of standby power consumption.
