"The Sound is Big and Expansive"
The Minx Air 200 combines Cambridge Audio's vast experience in electronics and speaker engineering with the latest wireless streaming technology. That means your smartphone can stay in your pocket, or you can keep using your tablet while your favorite songs fill the room.
Whether your music lives on an iPhone, iPad, smartphone, tablet, or computer, or if you prefer to use Music Apps like Spotify or Napster, you can stream it all wirelessly and instantly to Minx Air 200.
"What immediately strikes is the sheer sense of scale coming out of this speaker system. The sound is big and expansive," notes England's What Hi-fi magazine, which honored the Minx Air 200 with its top rating of Five Stars. "It fills our fairly large listening room easily and confidently with an authoritative performance."
"Powerful Audio, Without Missing a Beat"
"Their diminutive size belies the fact that they can deliver powerful audio without missing a beat… at the same time delivering an experience which is louder, crisper and fuller compared to other portable systems that are in the market," reports CoolestGadgets.com
"Cambridge Audio scores on its first outing designing wireless speakers with the Minx Air 200, a powerful, well-rounded device with the sonic chops to take on the heavyweights," raves PCmag.com for May 23, 2013
"A Superb Wireless Music System"
"Minx [Air] 200 does offer superb resolution, airy highs, and one of the cleanest sounding midranges we’ve ever heard from a desktop wireless loudspeaker," marvels Ian White in his DigitalTrends.com review for May 22, 2013. "[It's a] superb wireless music system that deserves to be at the top of your audition list."
"The Minx Air 200 certainly attracts the ear, especially when chucking out tunes at maximum volume, which is very loud indeed," reports Stuff magazine.
"The Best One-Box Stereo Ever"
"This Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 is, for me, the best one-box stereo ever," reports England's Financial Times. "Its richness and power is glorious, as loud as hell without distortion."
Airplay and Bluetooth
Minx Air is both an AirPlay speaker and a Bluetooth speaker, so whatever device you use, Minx Air is your perfect partner.
Apple's AirPlay wi-fi streaming technology means you can seamlessly play high-quality audio from your iPhone, iPad or iTunes.
Stereo Bluetooth is found in almost every smartphone, tablet and computer. So as long as your device is within range – up 30 feet - wireless high-quality audio streaming is easy. As well as the Standard Bluetooth Codec (SBC), Minx Air supports two higher-quality systems, which means you can get the best possible results from your Bluetooth device.
Minx Air's inbuilt apt-X support squeezes the absolute maximum digital detail out of Bluetooth wireless streaming audio, if your device supports it, for CD-quality playback of high-bitrate digital audio files.
Minx Air’s Bluetooth function also supports AAC audio files for enhanced-quality transmission. AAC is a widely used digital file format and is the default or standard audio format for YouTube, iPhone, iPod, iPad, Nintendo DSi, iTunes. It's supported by many manufacturers and devices including Apple, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, BlackBerry, as well as several Android device manufacturers.
Patented BMR Drivers
You won't believe how a compact, hide-away system can produce such a powerful, room-filling performance. The key is Cambridge Audio's patented dual 2.25" BMR drivers plus a 6.5" subwoofer.
Patented BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) speaker drivers deliver a wider, more room-filling sound than similarly-sized traditional speakers. Regular speakers – like you’ll find in other portable systems – move in and out to create sound. Cambridge Audio's BMR speakers also create sound using horizontal vibration modes for a much wider sound which is hugely beneficial when speakers are located so closely together.
The powerful, built-in 'Class D' digital amplifier delivers a massive 200 watts of power.
True Cambridge Audio Sound, Just Smaller
You might expect your compact music system to fill your kitchen or bedroom, but the Minx Air 200 can power the largest living rooms, too. The latest digital amplifier and signal processing technologies are combined with Cambridge Audio's patented BMR speakers for performance like no other wireless system.
Free Minx Air App
If you love Internet radio, you can enjoy all of your favorite stations at the touch of a button in crisp, digital quality. Or discover new stations from around the world. They are easy to access with Cambridge Audio's free Minx Air app for your phone or tablet. Search by genre or location, and you’re connected. Both Apple and Android versions are available.
You can also control your Minx Air using the free Minx Air app. It offers volume adjustment, bass control, preset control, and access to EQ settings to tailor Minx Air’s sound for each room. It also contains a tutorial for easy installation as well as step-by-step videos to simplify your set-up and connection to different devices.
And to ensure everyone can access Minx Air with ease, Cambridge Audio includes a neat wireless remote that controls power, presets, volume, and bass.
Enhance Your TV, Too
Minx Air features rear panel jacks so that you can hook up your TV or Blu-ray player and make the most of Cambridge Audio’s legendary audio performance. Connections include a 3.5mm mini-jack input and a stereo RCA input.
Seriously Good Design
Minx Air fits into your home rather than taking it over. It looks as good as it sounds. Made from rigid, yet acoustically damped materials and finished in beautiful high gloss lacquer, Minx Air is seriously solid, guaranteeing no distortion and no vibration. The carrying handle stealthily acts as a bass port to improve the deepest notes, too.
Easy to Set-up and Use
Cambridge Audio has worked really hard to make Minx Air intuitive, so that all of your family members can enjoy their music. The set-up guide ensures that your Minx Air is part of your home network in a few simple steps. Or for direct connection without a network, just press the Bluetooth pairing key and send music direct to your Minx Air.

"The new portable lifestyle focus of the Minx series seems to be working out just fine for Cambridge Audio. Both of these products are clearly at the top of their respective classes, and well worth a long listen from anyone in the market for a wireless streamer for around the house (with the 200) or out of it (with the Go)."

"This Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 is, for me, the best one-box stereo ever... I used the handsome 200 for a few weeks in a hi-fi free New York apartment and it's the best argument I've heard (aside from the more complex Sonos) for not having any other sound system. Its richness and power is glorious, as loud as hell without distortion."
