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 but mighty

The Cambridge Audio Minx X301 is in the middle of the X-range and strikes an ideal balance. At just 28cm square, it's smaller than most of its rivals, yet thanks to larger bass drivers, the sound's anything but. Like the other Minx subs, the X301 uses unique Cambridge technology to produce a bass response that is both powerful and tuneful.

Sophisticated Digital Signal Processor
At the heart of the X301 beats Cambridge Audio's sophisticated DSP (Digital Signal Processor). When combined with the digital amplifier, this provides exceptional bass with more than enough power to rattle the china! The bass cones are constructed of one-piece, aerospace-grade aluminium and configured with both powered and passive cones; something not usually seen at this price. Compared to conventional bass ports there's a greatly enhanced bass response with far more detail and control.

Beautiful finish
Although compact, the X301 packs a hefty 300W 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 X301 is the perfect match for most hi-fi, home cinema and TV systems.

Ideal for larger rooms or for higher volume requirements, the X301 is a deeply impressive subwoofer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little thing...thumbs up! I've been thinking about getting a sub for quite awhile, and after reading various reviews and forums about what a good sub can bring, I bought the X301 (arrived two days ago). Set up was a lot easier than I'd feared (got lucky with placement too, I think), back panel is *easy* to use. The Minx has brought an added depth, body & sense of space to my records that is most enjoyable - I was very happy before with my Linn/Naim/B&W system, but this little thing is the icing on the cake! Love it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solution to long standing problem I’m on a path to improve the sound in our house, building on some 40 year old Linn Kans. First step was a CXA81 to replace old defunct NAD 3020 which was always underpowered. Second was good streaming source through Intel Nuc. Left with a sense of not enough bass in the mix, which has always been my impression of the Kans. While this was fine in a student flat, needed upgrade. The Minx 301 is fab - solves that problem well. The Kans are super clear in the mid and high range, but just needed some support. Happy customer! Now looking at relative merits of Tidal and Qobuz. Later seems better for my tastes. What to do with all the CDs?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replacement for Tannoy Mixed feelings but after a week really enjoying the quality. Set up with Marantz Audessy after a couple of goes and is sweet as nut. Quality is better than the Tannoy Subwoofer it replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant My second sub, paired with large 7.2 monitor audio speakers setup. Sounds awesome these subs are not just for smaller systems. Definitely recommend put some more expensive subs to shame.
