Cambridge Audio Minx MIN22 (Black)
Single Satellite Speaker
Now in its third incarnation, the Cambridge Audio Minx MIN22 is better than ever.
The Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) effect
Using a single BMR drive unit and an additional woofer, the MIN 22 speakers give pinpoint accuracy and burst with detail right up to high volume levels. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers, so unlike some small speakers, they won't turn harsh or brittle when the sound gets intense. With a dedicated woofer unit built-in, the MIN22 offers even greater dynamics and scale of sound over the smaller MIN12 model.
Latest V4 drivers
Already well established as one of the most popular small speakers around, the Minx MIN22 has 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.
Neat and compact, the MIN22 is incredibly discreet and easy to place. Yet, with a wide range of mounting options, it's also one of the most flexible speakers. Take your choice from optional matching wall brackets, desktop stands or height-adjustable floorstands - there's a solution for every mounting requirement.
With smooth, curvaceous lines, the Minx MIN22 speakers look every bit as good as they sound. With a choice 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 MIN22 speakers offer quality sound, style and flexibility like little else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Brilliant speakers I am amazed by their sound quality, would definitely pair with a subwoofer as they are mostly for higher frequencies but they still give a bit of punch for their size, and 5* service at richer sounds as always

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary I from Great surround Speakers Bought a few weeks ago as left and right surround speakers to add to my Oberon front and centre speakers. Not only look great on the bespoke Cambridge stands but the sound is fantastic. This 5.1 surround set up is so good just wonder if the x201 sub woofer can really further improve. After speaker to Richer Sounds they are letting me trial one for 14 days and if it doesn’t improve the system they will refund in full. What a great company!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheraz_uk from Impressive clarity and definition.. I've been running these speakers for over a week now, initially as stereo then adding an additional 3 for a 5.1 setup. Don't let their compact size deter you from their capabilities, given the size one obviously will require a subwoofer to handle frequencies below approx 120Hz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Familyguy1234 from Great sound from such a small unit Bought these to go with my Home home cinema AVR. Wife didn't want any large speakers on show. Using for fronts centre an rears also using 2 as rear Atmos/height. Very clear separation and spacial tracking sound. Does need the sub woofer to give the low down bass, but to he expected from such small units. Overall very impressed with the clarity and separation of sounds, quality of finish and aesthetically keeps the missus happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tboner76 from Better than I thought Bought this as a replacement centre speaker for an old Tannoy 5.1 system as I was having problems hearing speech clearly...old age!. I tested it back to back against one of the old Tannoy units and whilst the MIN22 can't (quite) match the Tannoy for the amount of bass produced it totally blows it away when it comes to clarity, soundstage and general sound quality. My one gripe with the Tannoy set-up (which is now very old) has always been that whilst it sounded great for effects, the musical quality wasn't as good. The MIN22 is a convenient design as not only is it very compact with a nice finish but the ability to place it upright or sideways means that my TV can sit slightly lower on the wall. Whilst I wouldn't recommend using the MIN22 without a sub the only problem I really have with the MIN22 purchase is that I now 'need' to buy another couple to replace the two front Tannoy units as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by simondh from Very good sound from a small speaker I have now had these speakers for just over a week and I am very impressed with the sound quality from such a small speaker in a room approximately 6.5 metres x 3.8 metres. I have been looking at various speakers to replace my 15+ year old speakers and was aware of the trade off between quality, price and size of speakers. As I wanted fairly unobtrusive speakers for my TV 5.1 surround sound system I eventually settled on the MIN22 and I am very pleased that I did. I am currently using the speakers with a Samsung TV and a Denon AVRX550BT receiver and my old Panasonic subwoofer (which I intend to replace with a camridge audio model in the near future). I would highly recommend these speakers both for their compact size and sound quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sctolchard from Small but perfectly formed !!! Great speakers, and excellent for tight-spaces. Their sound is very 'balanced' between mids and highs, so 'great with a separate sub. A noticeable improvement over my previous (albeit entry-level) small Denon speakers = VERY happy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Philayre from PC speakers I bought these as pc speakers as I needed something small. They need a sub as the low end isn't there, but great build quality and super service from richersounds as always. For a surround sound setup they would be ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Geezer Man from Sound and power. Amazing sound and powerful as well no regrets. But i always encourage people when in doubt go into your local richer sounds and hear them for your self. I have no doubts at all and I'm not easily impressed if it can't give me what I want then I'm out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 369Scott from Excellent tiny speakers for home cinema! I wasn’t expecting too much from these tiny speakers as I was using them for surround back effects - was blown away by their quality and effect. Definitely a vast improvement to the system and a great addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lKillian10 from So good I bought a second pair Extremely good sound from these speakers. Have bought them as a second pair to complete a surround sound system. Combined with the CAudio subwoofer they complete an exceptional, compact system. Very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Him 675 from Superb sound I purchased 2 of these to upgrade my surround sound system and also was able to upgrade the speaker cable from the 1mm from my old Bose system to 2.5mm with right angled banana plugs wall mounted and what a difference. The sound is superb from these beautifully designed speakers and they look good on the wall without being too big well worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whitty 85 from Really good speakers I brought 5 to upgrade my 5.1 system,already purchased the Sub when I brought my Onkyo amp back in November. I went with the reviews and yes they are brilliant. Very good sound for both music and films. Had about 10 days now and they are excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazing sound from a tiny speaker As someone with limited options for mounting a large TV I really wanted a centre speaker small enough to sit beneath the screen, but I didn't want to compromise on the sound quality - especially for a centre speaker, which is so important in a home cinema setup. I have had CA products in the past so I knew to expect quality, but I've been truly impressed with just how good it really is. I already had front speakers otherwise I'd definitely be buying a couple more to use for that job too. And to top it all off it looks great and the build quality is clearly excellent. Bravo Cambridge Audio/Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent as always I bought this as a replacement for another mix 22 I had which unfortunately had been damaged when got knocked over by one of my children this is the slightly newer model and the sound seems even crisper and has more depth, as with all little speakers I always think a sub is necessary to complete the overall sound but for something this size you really can’t knock the quality of the sound it produces and this one is now being used as a centre speaker which gives the voices in anything I’m watching clarity and a clearness not usually found in speakers this size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great sound petite package Was wanting a centre speaker, but needed to be small. Found Cambridge Minx Min22 which is perfect. Tiny package that sits on shelf next to DVD but delivers brilliant speech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pressbutton from Astonishing I installed these as rear (surround) speakers to complement my Aeromax 6 fronts, and they completely blew me away. The high frequency clarity and mid range detail they produce is astonishing, and they go far lower than seems possible for something this size. I am really pleased that I purchased these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liam 39 from Small but packs a punch with great voice clarity! I bought this to replace my minx min 12 for my centre speaker and so glad I did. The upgrade to voice clarity is great when watching anything in 5.1. Voice audio no longer gets drowned out and clarity is great too! Due to Covid-19 I was not able to go into store so bought over phone, no issues and very quick. Which is why I would only ever use and recommend Richer Sounds for home entertainment

Rated 5 out of 5 by improdia from Perfect dialog in a 3.1 alternative to a sound bar My requirement was for a compact speaker system for a 3.1 setup with great sound for clear dialog from the center speaker so I bought 3 of the MIN22s. After a demo I decided they were just about OK on their own for TV shows and music but for movies and action I wanted a bit of extra bass so paired them with a very basic (inexpensive) Yamaha subwoofer and the result is spot on using my Pioneer VSX-1131 AMP. I'm not an audiophile but I can say that this is so much better than the soundbar route I tried first for a similar cost. The MIN22s seem to deliver more mid-to-low range than the slim soundbar was able to do.
