Richer Sounds exclusive model.

Now in its third incarnation, the Cambridge Audio Minx MIN12 is better than ever.


BMR - Balanced Mode Radiator - technology

Using a single, BMR drive unit, the MIN 12 satellite speakers give pinpoint accuracy and are bursting with detail right up to high volume levels. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers, so that the MIN12 satellites won't turn harsh or brittle when the music or film action gets intense.

Latest V4 BMR drivers
Already well established as one of the most popular small speakers around, the Minx MIN12 builds on previous models with a revised BMR drive unit. Now in its fourth generation, the new unit uses a larger magnet for improved efficiency, while driver excursion has increased from 2.2mm to 4mm, giving enhanced lower-midrange for improved integration with a subwoofer. Finally, the BMR unit moves in a more uniform manner, giving a more accurate sound across all frequencies.

Easy to place
Little bigger than a Rubik's Cube, the MIN12 is already incredibly discreet and easy to place. And with a wide range of mounting options, it's flexible in its location. Take your choice from optional matching wall brackets, desktop stands or height-adjustable floorstands - there's a solution for every mounting requirement.

Beautiful finish
With smooth, curvaceous lines, the Minx MIN12 speakers look every bit as good as they sound. With a choice of high quality black or white scratch resistant finishes, it's easy to match them in with your decor or AV system, too.

Ideal for home cinema, discreet hi-fi or desktop audio, the Cambridge Audio Minx MIN12 speakers offer quality sound, style and flexibility like little else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade An excellent replacement for my aged satellite speakers. Amazing clarity and so small. Needs a sub woofer and centre speaker to get the best from them. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minx Min 12 Max satisfaction Sounds gorgeous - looks neat. Video gamers and action movie addicts may want the additional subwoofer but a DAB receiver plus these beats any stand-alone radio and takes up little more room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very surprised... Surprised by the all round capabilities of these little speakers. Bought originally as surrounds for a new AV system but quickly realised the have the power and sound quality to quality as main centre or left/right speakers when coupled with my CA subwoofer. Great product, highly recommended on value and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! Absolutely fantastic design and the performance is just unbelievable for such a small product! Extremely happy with the purchase so much so I intend to buy more Cambridge audio products in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let the size fool you. I purchased five (5) Audio Minx Min 12 speakers together with an Audio Minx X201 sub-woofer as a 5.1 Speaker Pack to replace existing stereo speakers used with my home cinema system. The choice was a compromise between cost, size, build and sound quality, unfortunately with cost and size being the major drivers. I have reviewed the speakers individually and not as a package because I believe they would enhance most system on their own merits. The Min 12 speaker is a well engineered small cube, attractive to the point of non-intrusive, but weighty enough not to go walkabout at increased volume. Their sound quality is neither too sharp to be shrill or too mellow to be bland, but well balance across a wide genres of music and film. These speakers are probably best suited for the small/medium size room, and do need a sub-woofer to provide the bottom end however other than in a package as purchased are also worthy of consideration to expand an existing speaker system. Siting speakers can become a pain particularly with small children about however the Mini 12’s which have both screw and banana plug connections can be easily disconnected and placed out of reach until tranquillity is restored. Small mounting brackets are provisioned with the speakers and a variety of mounting stands are available for purchased separately. Because of my age I probably like others have associated small speakers with 60’s record players and portable radios, under the misapprehension that speakers have to be large to provide quality however technology has moved on without us and that’s no longer the case. These speakers may not be for the purist but are well made and good value in terms of sound quality and money. Digital music again sounds vibrant and film soundtracks have greater width and depth, unfortunately they do little for the scratches on my old vinyl or the hissing on my few remaining cassettes. Deservedly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set of speakers Looking for a small set of inconspicuous speakers that still packed a punch and these fitted the bill nicely. Not much bigger than a Rubik's cube but boy, do they deliver! Usual outstanding service from Richer Sounds arriving less than 24 hours after ordering from their website. 10 out of 10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good clear sound for but needs the subwoofer I bought a full set for surround sound in total 4 x single minx 1 x double minx. Sound is very good, crisp and clear but lacks bass - so subwoofer is needed to fully compliment these speakers. They are perfect for my tv surround setup as they are compact and discreet. I recommend these speakers as long as they are fulfilled in sound with the bass box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Bought last week to use as a centre speaker with Onkyo AV receiver, the voices are now clear and the sound superb.
Date published: 2020-07-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very small but mighty Excellent build. Small solid and heavy for the size. The sound is really smooth and clear. But they need a good quality sub to be truely heard and enjoyed. They are expensive but you are paying for a very high end product. Small and discreet for those who hate the sight of big speakers and hifi systems.
Date published: 2020-07-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny speakers with big performance I bought a couple of these as part of a 2.1 setup for my computer/office. The clarity is superb, and for such a tiny speaker the volume is more than impressive. As you would probably expect, they clearly lack the low end response (and work very nicely with the Yamaha YSTFSW050 sub) but I'm very happy with them.
Date published: 2020-06-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Punchy for their size These look and sound great. Very clear and clean sound. Impressive units for their size. Need to be paired with a sub really. Excellent when combined with a SX120. Sound fantastic.
Date published: 2020-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Additional Sound I bought these a week ago for use as front height speakers to move from 5.1 to 5.1.2. Early days but they appear to have made a difference now that I can experience Atmos. I also bought the wall brackets for the speakers and they are dead easy to install and adjust. I’m thinking of buying another pair ready for when my receiver gets upgraded so I can run 5.1.4. Price wise can’t fault them at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great compact speaker Was looking for a good quality but compact speaker to use as a centre and this does the job perfectly. Lacks some low end but should be expected for a speaker this size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge Audio Minx Min12 (black) I purchased a pair of Cambridge Audio Minx Min12 (black) speakers to complement my existing 5.1 Canton speaker setup. I mounted them on a pair of Cambridge Audio Minx 400M swivel brackets to add "height" effects to the front soundstage 1.5m above the front left and right speakers. Being over 10 years old, my Onkyo TX SR608 receiver doesn't have Dolby Atmos or DTS X but I was able to experiment with the older DolbyPro Logic IIz and Audyssey DSX listening modes for "height effects". The simple square cube design with rounded edges finished in gloss black is unobtrusive and nicely matches the gloss black design of my existing Canton speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discreet and excellent sound Plenty of punch for their size, multiple options for speaker terminations and mounting. The usual brilliant Cambridge Audio quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from atmos using them for height atmos as I have little space in bedroom. Using bose cubes before, but these are so much better. Good mid crisp whole sound from a small unit. You could use the double version for a centre as well. I like them for the price.
Date published: 2020-05-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality audio, sub-miniature size I needed reasonably decent speakers to play music from my computer but above all they had to be small. My home office is literally in a cupboard so space is absolutely at a premium. Two of these powered by a Denon PMA30 plus a powered subwoofer have done the job nicely. It all sounded OK with everything flat but obviously being sited in a cupboard is less than ideal. The sound really came to life when I put a (software) 31 band EQ across the iMac's output to even out frequency response, tweaked using a combination of pink noise and well mastered recordings. These were perfect for my needs, but your mileage may vary depending where you are siting them, and what you want them to do. But you definitely need to add a subwoofer for optimal results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound from such a small box!! These speakers were to replace much larger old speakers. The new ones give a cleaner sound.
Date published: 2020-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Sound From Small Speaker Bought a pair of these speakers to compliment my existing CAudio Minx speaker setup. They upgraded to the 7.1 surround sound I was looking for. Easily fitted to wall with the propriety brackets offered as an optional extra. Sound is good when used as the rear surround speaker. Quality of finish is just as good as the other speakers, being the black piano finish I have come to expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5.1.4 set up Was looking to add some discrete speakers to my 5.1 set up to take it to 5.1.4. have always liked the look of the minx speakers so after checking out a few reviews I took the plunge! They work perfectly and look great, working seamlessly with my monitor audio silver and vector speakers! If you are looking to add height speakers but cutting hole's in the ceiling is not an option then I say give these little guys a try! Great price too at the moment at richer sounds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Just bought 5 of these little bad boys 1 month ago and they sound excellent crystal clear sound especially for the size of them. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and sound Great little speakers with a lot of oomph. Working off an Onkyo TX-NR686 amp they provide great surround sound.
Date published: 2020-04-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant Little Speakers Used to replace some old Bose satellite speakers, but fed directly from the amp rather than the Bose bass unit. Used a separate amp (with adjustable cut off frequency) to run the passive bass unit. With a bit of tinkering, the overall sound is great. Slight concern about the speaker terminals, which keep on rotating after being tightened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from minx min12 very impressive small speaker the size of a rubix cube. for there size they produce a lovely sound quality. using them for atmos height speakers they have blended in very well. build quality is very good. nice speaker terminals and the supplied wall mounts are well thought out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cambridge wall speakers Brilliant speakers. Brilliant sound. Happy with it.
Date published: 2020-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Replacement I was on the look out for a reasonably priced replacement centre speaker for my modest living room surround sound set up and saw this. It’s small, unobtrusive and does the job extremely well, sitting on the mantel piece under my wall mounted screen. Spoken word is now a richly presented highlight rather than the muffled add-on it used to be. A worthwhile purchase.
Date published: 2019-12-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I bought these speakers for use as Atmos height speakers to go with my previously bought Denon AVR. I already had a pair used as surround speakers which worked very well.
Date published: 2019-12-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality Ignoring the fact that there's not much bass, the sound quality is fantastic. Very wide and even dispersion, smooth frequency response throught the entire midrange and treble, with the treble gently rolling off above 15kHz. I'm using them as rear surrounds, and they are perfect for the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very compact and great sound Much more discreet and very good sounds fun very easy to set up
