This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:

Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.

Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.

Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).

45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.

If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*

* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty.

"This Cambridge Audio soundbase ticks all the right boxes. It delivers a fantastic, exciting sound for a great budget price." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine. 5-star, grouptest winner.


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.


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.


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 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.


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 5 out of 5áby Top product, great price Hi all, I did extensive research on the best sound base/bar for my new TV, the name Cambridge Minx kept coming up with great reviews, but was hard to locate, I tried the Richer Sounds website and they had the base in the Tunbridge Wells shop, so I called in on a Sunday, tried it out in the shop, and took it home! I have been very pleased with it, it has a good clean sound, very easy Bluetooth connectivity, looks good, and even my wife says it sounds good! 21 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Sound I have spent a long time looking for a soundbar under ú200 and was recommended this one. All I can say is I am really happy with the sound quality. It plays my music through my phone with fantastic sound, I have watched a movie on tv and through my laptop and it sounds fantastic. Richer Sounds at Holborn London were fantastic as they looked on their system and told me there was one only in stock with all the parts and nothing missing unlike most of them in store as it was a discontinued product. The other stores were telling me there were cables missing or a remote etc that is why they were selling cheap as they had a new model out. Brilliant customer service from Holborn, I wish I got his name so I could praise him on this review but I am sure Holborn can source the young man who found me the product. A very happy customer I am. 20 June 2015
Rated 2 out of 5áby Over-dominant bass mars this product Lacking any control over sound balance other than 4 pre-set EQ settings (that sound very similar), I found this sound base to be massively weighted towards the bass frequencies. With 7 out of 10 movies, especially actioners, there's no acceptable volume at which both dialogue and deep bass can be heard. Most of the time I have to set it to minimal volume to control the booming and rely on my TV's tinny speakers to fill in the missing dialogue. I often don't bother using it at all - an expensive way to get a black plinth for your telly! 11 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Beatifully simple. All TV should come with this built in. The bluetooth means I have it paired with mobiles, laptops and the TV. Assume one day the remote can be paired with the TV one, meanwhile you have to make sure you dont lose the mini remote. 04 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Very happy This was for my mum who has difficulty hearing dialogue on her flat screen TV. The design is aesthetically pleasing and takes the weight of the large TV easily. The sound is quite impressive and movies sound great, more depth and seems to surround you at times. Importantly, the voice option makes dialogue much clearer Ms mum no longer needs the TV on loud. Very happy. 06 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Clarity at a budget Bought this sound base as a clearance item, boy was I blown away by this purchase. It delivers depth and stereo imaging which I didn't know I was missing. It delivers solid bass and adds definition to the sound that I didn't know I needed. I was originally going to buy a Yamaha sound bar for more money, but I am so glad I got this instead. 21 April 2015
Rated 3 out of 5áby Average sound stage, but good value for ú129.00 Not a very expansive sound stage, but is fine as a basic TV speaker for a small room 02 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby So clear, even deaf mother could hear it! Bought for my very deaf mother to give her clearer TV sound. Really clear sound, much better than she had on her (very expensive) Sony TV. We're absolutely delighted with this. Only downside - hence the 4 for design - is the minute remote which she found hard to use and was bound to lose. Replaced it with a larger programmeable type. Great advice from Richer sales staff (Plymouth shop), bought this on their recommendation. 02 April 2015
