"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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply stunning Had one of these about 18 months ago - my first ever digital all in one streamer - and I loved it to bits. Decided to "upgrade" to a much more expensive all in one, so had to sell my Minx (but found it didn't sound much better than the Minx). Now I have decided to expand into another room - so decided to purchase (for a second time!) an AudioMinx Xi. They are that good! Truly lovely sound and beautifully put together. My second Minx was bought just in time as the model is being discontinued - so as a bonus, I got it for silly money! But, naturally, there is a replacement model planned - and judging by Cambridge Audio's past performance, this will probably be even better. So, if in doubt, jump in - you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic kit!! I took the plunge to update my old HIFI system, and decided to invest in a streamer. After reading some reviews, I looked at the options available in other units, but decided the Minx was the unit for me. I listened to the salesman's advice and made the purchase. Setting up at home was fairly straightforward, once you get the flow of the menus on the unit it was easy. By connecting it directly to my network it is a joy to use and listen to, fantastic crisp and smooth output with more than enough power to fill my lounge, and the choice of so many sources. My only disappointment was the wifi operation which is patchy, bluetooth has a great range, and otherwise I love my Minx!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent features, flexibility. Purchased this amp with Dali Zensor 5 speakers. Both sounded great in the shop, demo was done on shop floor, no demo room. This was my fault as I only visited without appointment. Having got the kit home and used for a week,I didn't feel that the amp was doing the speakers justice or maybe the other way round. Anyway, decided to change the amp for Arcam a19. The Minx was very good and was very flexible regarding streaming and digital inputs. Great value for the money. Staff at Birmingham Richersounds very helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Crabby connection and very slow to start, sadly Sadly I wanted to love this after how good the CA One was but whereas that had issues with the clock, yet sounded great, this is just such a let down. It takes an age to fire up and is rubbish at wireless connecting most of the time. If you can be patient and leave it on all the time, and stream via Bluetooth .... likes of a Tidal, Spotify etc then I'm sure you'd love it, but if you're in and out of the house and want to catch the radio at those moments, it's probably worth seeing what else Richer can offer. Richer are great but the Minx xi has issues and so far firmware updates don't seem a remedy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from multi function, pretty good clever machine, HOWEVER!, Cambridge Audio advertises that its Spotify friendly, it isn't .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ticks all the boxes Easy to set up, just connect to your wi-fi (or ethernet) and you're good to go. I can play Spotify from my iphone via bluetooth, stream ripped vinyl mp3's from my laptop and listen to high quality internet radio, switching between tracks/sources/stations from the near flawless Stream Magic app. It looks great, sounds great and doesn't take up much room. Got a Cambridge optical cable to give it a go with my DVD player but yet to try it out. With such a wide variety of connections and great sound quality, it's an absolute joy to use. I got a great price from Richer sounds with the Cambridge Minx Xl speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent all in one box. The Minx Xi can provide a very good, neat answer to those wishing to clear away the clutter but still demand good clear sound.The amp is more than powerful to fill a normal lounge but note that it has no output, so you cannot link it through another amp. You have to wire the speakers to the Minx. Having said that, you will not be disappointed with the sound. We have plugged a seven socket USB hub into the upper USB socket on the back and then recorded our music onto four USB sticks using WAVE format. So, under Media, USB, we get the four USB titles coming up, select which one you want and then the sub albums, etc. Being files, you can make up your own folders, which is useful. Setting up the internet was very easy though we have kept our DAB unit as i found the internet version of the radio stations not as clear. We have only the mark 2 software, so no Spotify as yet and the internet players are mainly American and not available yet over here.
