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 52 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant addition to TV This is a great product and has enhanced the sound quality so much, Just need a bigger remote been lost many times down the sofa. 28 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Delivers great sounds This soundbase complements my 40inch Sony tv. Quality product delivers a crisp clear sound which greatly enhances our viewing and listening experience. As a non technical person I found the simple instructions not as detailed as they should be. For instance, it should explain that the tv sound should be muted and that the "OPT" button should be pressed if using the optical cable. The size of the remote control is really far too small and should be reviewed. Design wise, some form of display would have been nice. The supplied cables are very short and will not reach many larger tvs. These minor criticisms do not detract from the primary function- delivering excellent sound. 23 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Just the job and excellent service by Richer Sounds as usual. 17 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb sound for the price Bought this to replace a yamaha av amp and Kef HTS 2001 speakers. I could not have the amp on at night after the kids were in bed so did not use it. The sound from my tv was at times really hard to hear even when turned up. The volume numbers increased but the sound seemed to stay about the same level. While not as good as a dedicated surround amp and speakers I am realy suprised at the quality of the sound from this box of magic. I also have a Cyrus Bi amped hifi so am no stranger to good quality sound. I would rate this unit highly and the fact that there are no wires and no visible speaker cones for kids to poke is a bonus. I was so impressed with this unit that I have just upgraded my pc speakers with Cambridge Audios M5 multimedia speakers.Also impressed with them. But this with confidence 14 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product Good as sound plinth twice the price, great price, quick delivery easy to set up,good service from richer sounds as usual. 14 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install, great sound. If you want an easy addition to enhance your tv sound, this is an excellent choice. Plug into mains, optical plug into tv and enjoy. 10 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fantastic sound great alternative to a sound bar The Minx TV is a great alternative to a sound bar. As can be expected from Cambridge Audio, sound quality is excellent especially when playing music via the wired connections or when streaming via Bluetooth. The four mode pre-sets, have noticeable differences when using optical or Bluetooth but have little effect via the RCA input. The optical connection by far offers the best sound quality. However if your TV has no optical output for sound there is no choice but to connect it via the RCA inputs. An alternative is to connect a set top box via the optical input and use this input when watching TV. The only way to operate this device is the tiny remote. It will also not decode a 5.1 signal, and there is no easy way to switch between connected Bluetooth devices. This product offers better sound quality than some sound bars costing more than twice the price andIf it wasn?t for the minor drawbacks, I would not hesitate to give this product a five star rating 07 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for the money Been looking for something to improve the tv sound and found this with good reviews so took the plunge. Did everything I hoped it would and the ability to stream music via bluetooth is a great feature Only negative are the install instructions which are a little brief but it only took 5 minutes to figure out what they meant 05 September 2014
