Cambridge Audio Minx XL (White)
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 Paulr360 from Blown away I bought my Minx XLs second hand to replace some floor standing speakers that are too big for my flat and I am absolutely blown away by everything about them, the sound from these speakers is awesome they are being run through a Pioneer VSA EQ3 Amp and the results are better than my Bose acoustimass system, I would without doubt buy Cambridge Audio speakers again. Oh and they look the dogs dangles in the high gloss black finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by antonytaylor from Very pleased with this product. I was looking to upgrade my 20 plus year old set of separates and after two very helpful calls to Richer Sounds I settled on this system. Haven't looked back since! It's excellent all round, also purchased the Cambridge Audio Minx XL speakers whcu accompany the system perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paul U from Small size - big sound! Stylish speakers which fill the room with great sound despite their size. My other speakers are Dali Zensor 1, which have always impressed, but the Cambridge Audio Minx are just as good. You can reduce the bass response with baffles (supplied) if you wish, but this isn't necessary if you mount the speakers a little way from the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Well what Can I Say!!! We visited the store for a pair of speakers to reinstate our unused record deck. The advice and guidance was professional and not pushy. Hence we came home with the perfect speakers for our home. So now we are able to sit and listen to our vinyls and it’s amazing. Years of treasured memories on vinyl are now doing their stuff and the sound is awesome, the sound is richer sounds!!! Thanks Andy for your help and advice Hey the price was right too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by falcorob from Nice looking small speakers Bought with the matching Audio One hifi a couple of months ago. I have to say that, bearing in mind the speakers size, the sound they put out is impressive. I use quality speaker wire and have been assured that the output of the audio one is pretty good anyway (after a few minor tweaks to the bass and treble at least) so the speakers match really well. They are reassuringly heavy and have failed to move at all even though I’ve had the volume up nice and high on more than one occasion. They do attract fingerprints and dust due to the shiny exteriors though, but this is easily resolved with a damp cloth. If you’re short of space and are looking for a nice pair of speakers, or want a mini system which looks good and sounds as good as it looks, then the Audio One is the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent Addition to my Home Cinema I bought these to add to my Cambridge Audio Min 22 and X201 Home Cinema Speakers. I emailed Cambridge Audio first to make sure that these would integrate well, with no imbalances. They were excellent and got back to me very quickly assuring me that these would integrate perfectly. - They have! I have a 7.1 Atmos System and have used these as Front Left and Right Speakers. My system was very good before, but now it is outstanding with extra detail, bass and presence coming through. This is a well worthwhile upgrade that I would recommend for any Min based system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by F4zza from Love these. I have an eclectic mix of speakers! These form part of my living room 9.2, they're on a bookshelf and look great. They sound exactly how they look: rounded, sophisticated and smooth. They share a room with some Dali Ikon 6 MK2s, they have nothing like the clout of the Dalis but have an extremely subtle midrange that the floorstanders lack. What I like about these is that teamed up with just a sub, they provide just the right amount of power if friends are round and we want to talk. They're not overpowering in the way that a 9 way stereo set up is. All in all a cracking pair of speakers, they won't damage your hearing but do exactly what a small pair of bookshelf speakers should do, and a wee bit more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RichK from Cracking sound, look fab I bought these to compliment some Monitor Audio ceiling speakers which are nice but these pair of Cambridge are different gravy and totally make the sound work in the wider space that they connect to.
