Cambridge Audio Minx XL (Black)
Speakers Per Pair
The perfect match for the Minx XI system but also ideal for use with other quality hi-fi, the Cambridge Audio Minx XL speakers sound as good as they look.
XL sound quality
In selecting the drive units for the Minx XL, Cambridge Audio has put sound quality ahead of all other considerations. A silk dome tweeter gives the ideal combination of crisp detail with a smooth refined sound. Matching this is a custom-designed woofer with a treated paper cone. It might sound basic, but it gives the Minx XL speakers a fast, responsive sound quality with a bass that's larger than you might expect from this size of speaker.
Top build quality
Ensuring the drive units sound their very best, the Minx XL uses rigid MDF cabinets. Designed to minimise standing waves, the cabinets help further in producing a clean, accurate sound. For a well-balanced bass, even at lower volume levels, the Minx XL speakers are rear ported. Using them close to a wall? Dampen the ports with the provided foam inserts, for a sound more suitable for the room.
Finished in a deep and lustrous gloss black or white, the Minx XL speakers are the perfect match for the Minx XI system. Even with other systems, they're amongst the best-looking speakers at their price and feature some neat detailing. The drive units, for example, are recessed and have hidden fixings giving better sound-staging for a more accurate rendition of the music. The cable terminals will accept thick cables and are also gold-plated for a low-resistance connection.
Cute and compact but with a big-hearted sound, the Minx XL speakers have winning ways all-round.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Billoosh from Stunning results from a gorgeous box I brought these to match a Cambridge Audio One and am blown away with the sound quality from such small boxes. They are also excellent value when you buy them together. On top of that the design is really good with high quality connections and they look stunning. I've got mine on Pixel T80s for a bit of extra height and they match really well. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Compact looks with great sound ! I bought these speakers along with a Cambridge Audio ONE stereo two weeks ago. I must admit I was surprised at the superb tonal quality these speakers produce considering their small size. I am over the moon with this purchase and would have no hesitation in recommending these speakers to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jas76 from Awesome sound from such tiny speakers I have recently down sized my hifi from Cambridge audio azur cd and amp running Tdl studio five floor standers, (this was an awesome system), infact the only downside was the space they took up, I now have the Cambridge audio one with minx xl speakers and although there is a 30 watts per channel difference, I am still very very impressed when I crank it up, the new system easily matches my old set up, base is on form and punchy and trebble is Chrisp and and clear picking out the finest little pitch. These speaker are fantastic and work very well with the one unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James L from Cambridge Speakers I bought these to go with my Pioneer system and am delighted with the quality of sound from them, The speakers are small enough to be unobtrusive but have handled well everything from Beethoven to Hendrix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trebbisa1 from Ages to decide, made the right choice! Had a pair of floor standing speakers for a long time, wanted to reduce the room they took up in my lounge. Deliberated for ages as to what to buy, and not disappointed. Cracking pair of speakers. Got a Cambridge Audio amp anyway, like the brand, always great quality. So far, all types of music etc. very pleased with and an improvement on previous set up for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxBh from The sound I wanted. As with the ONE hi-fi, the sound is warm and clear, and I can't fault it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tim the shim from Great speakers These speakers were recommended by the sales guy. The sound is incredible you hear instruments that you never knew were there. They handle a good volume too. The windows rattle. I would without hesitation recommended these and already have done so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phill234 from Shockingly Powerful Size was a big restriction for me when choosing to upgrade my speakers, I actually reserved a pair of Dali Pico's ahead of my visit to RS but upon arrival was introduced to a set of Minx XL's as an alternative. I talked it over with the staff and I'm very pleased that I brought these home. In short I'm shocked at just how powerful they are, I know that floor standers are king but prepare yourself (& your neighbours) for when you get to crank these up. Excellent balance of low's & highs and great clarity. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great little speakers pack a punch I bought a pair in black to go with my Cambridge Audio One system, and I'm predictably impressed with the sound quality and design of these units. Fantastic dynamic response, soundstage depth and midrange clarity for speakers of this size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DangerClose from Room filling sound The guys in the shop were brilliant as always and gave us a demo of these against two other speakers priced at 349. These blew them away. The sound was a lot more realistic. When playing music it sounded like "you were there" as opposed to just playing music. The build quality is excellent (as you'd expect from Cambridge Audio) and even next to the wall there's no need to use the provided bungs to reduce bass levels. One very happy customer.
