CAMBRIDGE AUDIO MINX SOUND FOR YOUR TV


A Soundbase is one of the simplest ways of upgrading your TV's sound. Unfortunately, although an improvement on your TV, not all sound bases offer great sound quality. Thanks to Cambridge Audio knowhow and Minx technology great sound is one aspect of the Minx TV that you can be sure of.

THE MINX BMR EFFECT

Using twin BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drive units, the Minx TV gives pinpoint accuracy and is bursting with detail right up to high volume levels. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers. This means that, unlike some soundbars and bases, the Minx TV is truly dynamic and won't turn harsh or brittle when the music or film action gets intense. For added bass power, a downwards firing subwoofer negates the need for a separate subwoofer in the room. The overall result is clean, punchy sound from TV, movies and music - just as you'd expect from masters of sound, Cambridge Audio.

BLUETOOTH MUSIC STREAMING

In addition to making your TV sound great, the Minx TV also offers effortless Bluetooth music streaming. Simply pair your device and you can stream music from your smartphone, tablet or Bluetooth-equipped laptop or desktop computer. Stream your music library or use a music streaming service such as Spotify or last.fm and enjoy a massive range of music in Minx quality. As an added bonus, a selectable 'Music' EQ mode ensures the speaker is ideally 'voiced' to sound its best.

SIMPLE TO USE

Using the Minx TV is easy. Simply connect your TV by optical digital, 3.5mm or RCA phono sockets and you're ready to go. These can also accept a second source, such as CD or DVD player. The simple remote control offers four EQ settings that are ideally tailored to match your listening source. It also commands quick pairing with your Bluetooth device, eight of which can be matched to the Sound base.

Experience the Minx effect on your TV and you'll wonder how you ever did without it.

Rated 4.5 out of 5†by 69 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5†by Good value product I bought this for my father-in-laws 70th birthday. I haven't yet heard it myself, but he is very pleased with it and the improvement in sound quality compared to the normal TV output. Mother-in-law is also happy, as the improvement in sound quality means the TV doesn't need to be turned up so loud! Brother-in-law is so impressed with it that he's considering buying one for himself. (I haven't given 5 stars as my review is based on the comments of others and I haven't used this myself.) 31 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5†by Good soundbar, very good sound quality. Very good sound, good design and build quality. Remote is very basic and too small. 28 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Delivers great sound Brilliant buy. Has revolutionised my viewing! Can also play my iPod classic through it! 26 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Amazing sound at a bargain price This unit has everything, superb deep bass, and great high end. The design means it is now a feature of our living room. Only issue is the rather lightweight remote. Otherwise this is a perfect edition to any AV sound set up. 25 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Good design The units design can be absorb much easy than normal sound bars its stored in our TV unit and does not stick out and fits well in to the unit. This is due to its compact size and only one piece of equipment. 25 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5†by Great value soundplate I bought this as a simple to operate sound system for our holiday home. The previous surround sound system, although of higher quality was difficult to use, especially when less tech savvy guests were staying there. The Minx was simple to install and is easy to use. It gives a massive boost to the 40" Samsung TV sound. 24 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Nice piece of kit well worth the money. I got this at Christmas and thought I'd leave a review after using it for a while. This is a quality soundbase for the price you can't go wrong (mine was £130 in Xmas sale). Would be nice to have HDMi but I guess that would impact on the price. Currently I have the TV on optical, ipod on 3.5mm jack and phono running my turntable. All I can say is the sound is superb if a bit high in the mid range for me. Playing the ipod and turntable I couldn't believe how loud it will go without any sign of struggle. If you have limited space and/or in my case a wife who isn't a fan of speakers and wires everywhere this should be your weapon of choice. Lastly this is a massive improvement over and standard tv speakers get one you won't be disappointed. 14 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Does what it says on the tin Exactly what we wanted. Plain but no nonsense design. Rubbish little remote but other wise recommended. 31 December 2014
