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 59 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Subtle With less than perfect hearing I decided to see if changing the TV sound output would make a difference. Setting it up would have been easier if the optical cable had been a fraction longer. Bluntly, the manual/instructions is rubbish. It would be clever if the remote could put something on the TV screen in response to button presses but I guess that the optical interconnect can't do that. I would prefer it if the device was slightly smaller, it looks a little bulky, an inch less high would make all the difference. I can recommend using a universal remote - one button press turns on the TV, PVR and Linx TV, and turns everything off when I've finished. Super. Connected it up, configured the universal remote, and pressed the on button. Everything came on as expected. There is an improvement in the sound. I'd say it is subtle. I noticed straight away that I can hear tones that I wouldn't have heard before so on that basis I'd say it's a good bit of kit and worth having. 28 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Sound, poor instructions, miserable little remote control When I finally got this sound bar to work, it produced quite a good sound quality markedly better than the original produced by the Television. I found that before the item worked I had to switch off the TV speakers and direct the sound to external speakers. Only then would the controls on the remote control work. Make sure you don't lose the remote control, if you do you will not be able to use the speaker. I don't know what a replacement remote would cost, or even I could obtain one and I hope I never have to find out. The instruction leaflet would benefit from one extra page advising users on how to use the product. That said the sound quality is quite good and the sub-woofer is quite impressive. Overall I like it. 17 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy set up Improved sound thru TV, has brought music from kindle fire to life via Bluetooth. Let down by poor quality remote. . 28 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good alternative to a sound bar Will never replace a 5.1 system but if you need a sound boost with decent bass, then this is a good alternative to those ugly sound bars. 25 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not as good as I expected Not that impressed overall. Wasn't expecting a home cinema experience, but did think there would be a greater improvement in sound quality compared to that from our 32" Panasonic tv. The sound is underwhelming and certainly not as 'dynamic' as advertised. The change brought about by using the four EQ buttons seems minimal to me, certainly when compared to a friend's Panasonic SCHT-E80,.now priced lower. To be scrupulously fair, our tv only has an RCA phono output and it may well be that the Minx performs much better with an optical link. In spite of reservations, though, I'd still have to award 4 stars and recommend it, because it does improve voice clarity considerably, which is the main reason why I bought it. Previously, I had tried to watch a recording of the American film Margin Call, but gave up, because I couldn't make out a lot of the dialogue, but now can using the Minx. Some criticise the small remote, but at least the buttons are clearly marked and very responsive. 20 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 What a difference I accept that plugging in any sound bar would have made a difference to the sound quality from my TV, but for me the Cambridge Audio Minx has delivered everything I expected. It's lifted the veil on the buried sounds and filled my room - great product 15 October 2014
