"Just Extraordinary… I've Never Heard Better"
The Minx Min 21 speaker from Cambridge Audio takes audio excellence to the next level with a twin driver configuration for even more power and greater dynamic range. Min 21 is the ideal choice for larger rooms and offers an amazing hi-fi experience whether you're listening to soothing classics or a live rock concert! You'll love the Min 21 for home theater, too.
"As far as the Min 21 satellite is concerned, I've never heard a better one, and I can count its equals on the fingers of one hand with a few fingers left over," raves Mark Fleischmann in his April 19, 2013 post for Home Theater magazine. "The sats are just extraordinary."
"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," notes TrustedReviews.com in an August 2011 review of a system with Minx Min 21 satellites and a Minx X300 powered subwoofer.
The Mini 21 has a small but potent dual driver configuration. On top is a 2.25" BMR driver, and on the bottom is a 2.25" long throw woofer. Together they pump out huge amounts of sound
Balanced Mode Radiator Technology
The Minx magic is the result of an intensive two-year development program by Cambridge Audio's engineers to achieve extraordinary sound from incredibly small cabinets.
Cambridge Audio's exclusive Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) technology features in each Minx satellite speaker. BMR drivers utilize patented 'bending wave' principles normally seen in advanced flat panel speakers combined with pistonic movement (backwards and forwards) like in a traditional speaker design. This gives Minx a much wider frequency response than comparable style speakers for deeper and more powerful bass frequencies plus surprisingly spacious sound.
"Honeycomb Sandwich Membrane"
A honeycomb sandwich membrane is at the heart of BMR technology. Acting as a piston and a bending mode radiator simultaneously, it provides an incredibly wide frequency response.
Minx's machined aluminum extrusion provides a solid mechanical ground for the BMR driver. Ultra compact push-pull Neodymium magnets deliver astonishing power and more useable cabinet volume for superior dynamics. An acoustically damped thermo polymer cabinet offers extreme rigidity.
Quite naturally you want your speakers to fit into your home rather than designing your living space around your system. Once again Cambridge Audio's BMR adds value by delivering a much broader sound dispersion across the entire room, avoiding the typical 'sweet spot' pitfall of other style speakers, for the most enveloping sound imaginable.

"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."
