Enjoy genuine hi-fi sound quality but demand discreet style? Then take a look at the ground-breaking Cambridge Audio Minx system!

If you're in any doubt about the quality of this system then take a look at what the reviewers have been saying. "Well, Bose is about to get a sound thrashing from the British boys at Cambridge Audio, whose brand-new Minx is even smaller than Acoustimass - especially the subwoofer - and simply better. Much, much better." Jonathan Margolis, Financial Times. And, "To say we were impressed is a gross understatement." T3

Small yet mighty

It may be the smallest in the family of Minx subs but don't underestimate the power of the X200! Like the other Minx subs, the X201 uses unique Cambridge technology to produce a bass response that is both powerful and tuneful. At the heart of the X201 beats Cambridge Audio's sophisticated DSP (Digital Signal Processor). When combined with the digital amplifier, this provides exceptional bass from what is one of the world's smallest subwoofers. To maximise this advantage the bass cones are constructed of one-piece, aerospace grade aluminium.

One powered, two passive cones
Configured with a single, powered cone and twin passive cones, the X201 uses technology not before available at this price. Compared to the more conventional bass ports, you get a greatly enhanced bass response with far more detail and control. Although small, the X201 packs a mighty 200W from its active amplifier and offers gain, phase and crossover control for full control and integration with a complete Minx system.

Finished in special, scratch-resistant, premium automotive gloss black paint, the X201 is the perfect match for most hi-fi, home cinema and TV systems. Prepare to be impressed!

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compact with a big sound. Before ordering I decided to give Richer Sounds in Preston a call to get a more personal opinion. I spoke to Darren, who could not of been more helpful, and explained that I would be better just replacing the sub with a compact little number from Cambridge Audio. I decided to go down and collect. Upon arrival I met Darren, who spent the next forty five minutes setting up the X201 and giving me various demonstrations of it's capability. I was very impressed. Actually physically smaller than my toaster, yet plenty of power where it's required and lots of detail when it's not. The build quality is also very impressive with a finish that does not look out of place in my living room. Very much pleased this is the route I took, and a special thanks to Darren at Richer Sounds. 19 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good sound but overpriced for what it is Good sound but the cost for a sub of tis size is too much 02 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Recommended Having read so many good reviews both in customer comments and in the media about this sub I took a chance and ordered without listening, and I also ordered the Minx Min22's to complement a Denon AVRX520BT AV Receiver which was to replace a Bose321 - and what an improvement this has made to the quality. This sub is about 1/4 of the size of the Bose sub but delivers a purer detailed sound which was easy to set up and position - and I no longer get grief from the wife about the big black box by the TV. Highly recommended. 31 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent depth and richness of sound I had already decided this was the sub-woofer I wanted but I was glad that Richer Sounds helped me in my decision by making some honest comparisons.I am very happy with my decision 05 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent power and sound quality Bought the Cambridge audio X201 subwoofer from the Kingston store an excellent piece of kit I needed to save some space in my living room and this subwoofer fitted the bill perfectly. This subwoofer replaced my old Yamaha unit and is an extremely well designed and very pleasing on the eye. Sound quality is superb and was very easy to setup I would recommend this unit and works well with my Mordaunt- Short M10 and Cambridge audio Minx 21 speakers. 05 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good for its size The first X201 was faulty but Richer Sounds, Southampton replaced it immediately with a new one without a quibble. The product itself is quite impressive for its size and that is the point to remember. The sound is not quite as sharp/punchy as I had hoped and there is a slight tendency to 'boom'. This increases noticeably if the gain (volume) is turned above 2 thirds. Having said that, this speaker compliments a pair of Ruark MR1 speakers very well and does not drown them with bass. It is difficult to assess exactly where to position the crossover frequency as this speaker seems to have been designed primarily with small satellite speakers in mind. But a little trial and error has none-the-less arrived at an acceptable level. 04 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great things come in little packages Great little sub. I'm running it with the Yamaha SRT1000 soundbase. Extremely pleased with it. Sounds excellent with both movies and audio. Easy to adjust volume and crossover frequency as required. Takes a little bit of tweaking between movies and different types of audio, but that's half the fun. Sounds better in my flat than the demo room. Just wanted to say thank you to the staff in Guildford, as they had it all set up for me in the demo room when I arrived. As always, fantastic customer service. 14 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Bought after looking at many alternatives. Its not the cheapest around but I'm glad that I chose it. The features I wanted was that it only turns on when it receives a bass signal and that it was small and could be hidden easily. It is absolutely awesome. I never realised just how much life it added to action movies and music. Also its British and I couldn't be more pleased with it. Thanks to Richer sounds Preston again. 05 August 2015
