Richer Sounds exclusive model.

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 1 out of 5 by from Amazing sound from compact speakers Replaced my Bose lifestyle system with these and a Denon Receiver and amazed at the difference. Much wider frequency range and clarity improved - do need the subwoofer though. The speakers are just as compact and blend into the room unobtrusively which was a requirement. Delivery next day to a timed slot

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 4 out of 5 by from Surprising depth and power After lots of online research, multiple mind changes, I eventually decided to go down the CA Minx route to upgrade my reliable Canton Movie 75 speaker package (also purchased from RS). The Canton package works well, has lots of depth and is very impressive for its size. The Minx system had a lot to live up to. It did not disappoint. This sub, which is far smaller than most others, is mind blowing. Its ability to deliver room shaking bass is astonishing. But unlike other setups I've heard it then fades into the background when required. In other words you don't need to artificially boost low frequencies to get a substantial bottom end. The sub comes to life when the soundtrack demands it and then does an incredible job of blending in seamlessly with the rest of the Minx speakers. I'm incredibly pleased. I'm still within my 30 hours of run in time so this should get better with time. The reason for 4 stars rather than 5, I have found the X301 to be more susceptible to room placement than some others. A minor gripe as ultimately that's physics. For reference, I have paired this with the Min 22 speakers in a 5.1 system. The whole system blends very well together. Crossover on my AVR is set at 160hz (seemed a little high but 120hz is too low and the amp jumps to 160hz thereafter - frequency test confirmed I'm not losing any frequencies setup this way whereas set at 120hz I had a very audible dip) Purchased during quarantine over the phone and arrived the very next day. Great advice on the phone by RS too. Their customer service will keep me coming back continuously.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great musical bass sound I originally bought this for my 7.1 cinema set up, unfortunately it did not give the depth of bass I was looking for. It is now augmenting the bass on my hifi system (2 x Dali Zensor 1) and is taking my music to a new level!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but mighty Buying this package was quite a gamble however for there small size the sound was a least as good as my full sizd 5.1 system. Very impressive sub creating a great atmosphere for movies and music alike. An outstanding package that fits perfectly in to the room with a very minimal footprint.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the box I bought this as a replacement for the x300 that stopped working. It's as good as the first one. I hope this new model stays working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be prepared to hear bass as it should be heard. After much deliberation I choose the Cambridge Audio X Minx 301 Subwoofer. As always my first place to buy any is Hi Fi is Richer Sounds, they gave me impartial advice and guidance. I was a little overwelmed by the clarity of the sound, as it is very impressive. After a little tweeting I have found the bass that suits, this is for TV, films and music All I need now is for the house to empty so I can give it a real blast. Now where are my reggae CDs and LPs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Punches above its weight After downsizing, I was quite dubious to try such a small unit. Even without setting up, straight out of the box the X300 outclassed both Kenwood and Celestion larger competition. A no brainer for me.
