"Cambridge has done a terrific job with the Minx Xi. Its easy to use, well built and sounds great - you won't be disappointed." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine, 5-star review.

The reviewers' choice

In addition to the five-star review and Product of the Year awards from What Hi-Fi magazine, the Minx Xi has wowed the press across the board. Gaining a converted 'Which?' 'Best Buy' award, they said that it was, "a bit of modern day magic, this Cambridge Audio streaming mini system earns a coveted Best Buy award. Partnered with a pair of the XL speakers by the same brand (not included), this micro hi-fi delivers top quality sound with a host of capabilities well within the grasp of the novice users."

One system does it all
If you're after a compact system that can cope with all your digital and analogue sources plus still sound great, look no further. Despite its compact size, the Cambridge Audio Minx Xi boasts a powerful 40W amplifier that can easily fill all but the largest of rooms. As you'd expect from Cambridge Audio, the quality is top notch, too. An oversized toroidal power transformer provides effortless power and dynamics, while selected components ensure low distortion, natural sound.

Premium DAC technology
In addition to the quality amplification, the Minx Xi features impressive digital components. A premium Wolfson DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) ensures that whatever the digital source, the Minx Xi will do its very best in producing the highest quality audio available. Cambridge Audio has also paid great attention to reducing jitter by implementing a host of jitter reduction techniques, giving superior sound quality to other, less focused, music streaming systems.

High quality music streaming
The idea behind the Minx Xi is to get the very best sound quality from whatever source. So by either using a wireless* or Ethernet network connection you can access your stored music on a NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive, laptop or PC. Using UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play), set-up is simple and there's no further software required. It's compatible with 24-bit FLAC and WAV files (24-bit/96kHz maximum) so that you can stream music that's better quality than CD.

Internet radio and music steaming services
The Minx Xi also accesses internet radio and streaming music services without your PC or Mac needing to be switched on. Using a specially developed site called Stream Magic, the Minx Xi accesses 20,000 internet radio stations that have been assessed for their reliability and performance. There's also support for streaming music services such as the BBC iPlayer Radio, Pandora and Rhapsody.

Bluetooth streaming
With a BT100 Bluetooth dongle receiver supplied, the Minx Xi is also equipped for streaming music from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or other Bluetooth-compatible device. Simply pair the device and stream your stored or streaming music via Bluetooth.

Controlled via your smartphone
With the free Stream Magic Apple/Android app you can take control of the Minx Xi using your smartphone or tablet. Stream Magic also seamlessly manages all your streaming content and is, in effect, a very user-friendly way of bringing together and controlling all your digital sources.

Multiple connections
The Minx Xi comes with a comprehensive collection of sockets. Three USB ports allow you to connect up media devices or memory sticks, while digital sources, such as CD or DVD players can be hooked up via optical or coaxial digital inputs. Finally, analogue sources are catered for by two RCA phono inputs at the rear, plus a 3.5mm socket at the front.

Style, control and, not least, great sound quality; the Cambridge Audio Minx Xi is the new class champion.

*Wireless/Wi-Fi not recommended for 24 bit streaming due to the variable speed of Wi-Fi networks. Users streaming 24 bit files should use a wired connection.

Don't forget to add speakers, as they're not included with this system.
