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 yet mighty

It may be the smallest in the family of Minx subs but don't underestimate the power of the X200! Like the other Minx subs, the X201 uses unique Cambridge technology to produce a bass response that is both powerful and tuneful. At the heart of the X201 beats Cambridge Audio's sophisticated DSP (Digital Signal Processor). When combined with the digital amplifier, this provides exceptional bass from what is one of the world's smallest subwoofers. To maximise this advantage the bass cones are constructed of one-piece, aerospace grade aluminium.

One powered, two passive cones
Configured with a single, powered cone and twin passive cones, the X201 uses technology not before available at this price. Compared to the more conventional bass ports, you get a greatly enhanced bass response with far more detail and control. Although small, the X201 packs a mighty 200W 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 X201 is the perfect match for most hi-fi, home cinema and TV systems. Prepare to be impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a little monster!! I bought this Sub to complement my Cambridge Audio Minx 22 pair of stereo speakers and this sub made them come alive! Without a Sub, Minx 22 suffers a lot with low frequencies so this is a great complementary unit to pair with. I use these in a 4x4 small room but the sound is more than enough. For a 10x10 room, this might not be the case maybe (never tried indeed) but for a small to mid-sized rooms, this Sub is a perfect companion. It's looking great and taking very little space. I am driving these on Sony STR-DN1080 and set the crossover to Cambridge Audio's suggested place at the back on the Sub (check photos)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great system Replaced my old and Ageing 5.1 with the Cambridge Audio 7.1 and now realise that I had been listening for a while to sound underwater. Crisp, full and immersive - great purchase and really pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fills the Room I’ve been wanting to buy a Sub to compliment my already excellent Cambridge Audio One and Minx XL speakers for quite a while. After a fair bit of looking around I decided that as I was still very happy with the performance and versatility of the the Audio unit and XL’s that the x201 should rise to the challenge. Easily ordered from Richard Sounds as we were all in Anti Viral lockdown, the Sub arrived a couple of days later. A quick look through the instructions and set up was very quick and simple. Whilst the Audio One with the XL’s was ample for the room the addition of the x201 was incredible adding such depth to everything, and in an easily to control manner. If you are after a great, easy to use versatile system for a great sound buythe Cambridge Audio One , buy the Minx XL speakers , and buy the X201 subwoofer. You won’t regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cambridge Audio - minx 201 sub bought this from RS recently after my previous Cambrige 301 sub packed in after 7 years. Very happy with sub despite being a step down in model i a previously owned. I dont notice any difference. 201 model is very compact, stylish and sleek. it packs a good punch for the average sized UK house. I've paired it with cambrige audio minx speakers for the 5.1 effect. if looking for stylish yet discreet speakers with excellent sound inhighly recommended Richer Sounds and CA equipment..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart piece of kit Very happy with the minx 201. The bass is incredibly powerful. I did find it harder to setup than I thought, mainly because I am not using other minx speakers with the 201 at the moment, but after watching a few youtube clips I played around with the settings and found the appropriate output that works well with my existing speakers. I would also praise Richer Sounds delivery process which is traceable and slick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small is Good We downsized to a smaller property and our old Sub (Gale) was way to big for the room. Im amazed at the quality of sound from the Minx X201. No more boom that the Gale was always prone to, Just a crisp clear Bass that enhances the sound 100%. Really easy to set up and a great look with the Gloss white a lovely change to the typical black or wood veneer. If your looking for a space saving Sub with great quality and even better sound then this is the one to go for. 100% recommend the Minx X201

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A monster in a little box I only us my sub for music, it’s almost like replaying all you CDs and hearing something new. Gives fantastic depth and body to music. It looks tiny, but trust me, this little box punches well above it’s diminutive size, capable of kicking out 200w, which I doubt I’ll ever use, but it’s nice to know it’s there. Would I recommend it, 100% if you to hear your music with a bit more bass.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hardly audible I bought this a few weeks ago to enhance the sound of my Yamaha av amplifier as it only had a passive sub and thought an active one would give it a better bass but unfortunately £250 later it’s really very quiet and I wish I’d not bothered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sub with big sound and small footprint I bought this Sub to be part of a dual sub setup in my lounge. The Sub was really easy to set up and sounded great out of the box. It’s still in the first location I put it and haven’t felt the need to move it because the sound is big and full where it is. Works equally well with Music and Movies and gives great detail. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sub for its size. I bought one of these a year ago for my home cinema (a Dali setup) and gave now bought another for my back room to pair with minx speakers. Small enough to go under a sofa or armchair with a good quality sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, big improvement on the X200 I bought this to replace my failed X200 and I have to say it's a big improvement. Much deeper bass, easily fills my lounge paired with 5 x min22's

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact with great sound and quality. Really pleased with this purchase. We’ve had Cambridge Audio stuff for years and this item certainly lives up to their reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small package, sounds great This is a super subwoofer. Small enough not to be intrusive but very capable. I wanted it for background music not pumping out high volume, and it achieves this very well.
Date published: 2019-05-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Stunner I needed a sub for a smaller room for movies, music and gaming and the X201 is perfect. Build quality is great, it's a great looking sub if like me you have nowhere to hide it, and for a small box it punches above its weight in sound. Great service from RS too - I'm very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Sound I purchased the Cambridge Audio x201 to go with a pair of Cambridge Audio minx min22 speakers ( positioned on wall with brackets) & the Cambridge Audio one. Using Cambridge Audio speaker cable , Cambridge Audio subwoofer lead. My thoughts were if i buy everything needed from the same manufacture it should have the best chance of producing a decent sound!! I was not disappointed , very easy to set up , small speakers , small sub , small unit but the sound is anything but small. It seems to work together in harmony , the sub filling in perfectly when it needs to , producing plenty of bass. I can not get over the sound quality from this set up. Would i recommend the Cambridge Audio x201 , 100% yes. All purchased from Richersounds of Exeter , Very helpful , knowledgeable guys with great customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable This was the last speaker to be replaced in a 5.1 set up replacing an old Tannoy sub. The Tannoy was a big unit and produced plenty of boomy bass so I wasn’t expecting this to compete. It more than does and also changes the dynamic of the whole system. Everything now feels tighter, more co-ordinated and detailed just from replacing the sub. The boom no longer overpowers but it still thumps you. It can do loud too. Turned up you can still feel this vibrating your eyes, but for my room it is perfect. Still active at low volume and still providing detail in the bass. This is used with a Pioneer VSX1201, 4x Dali Zensor Pico and a Monitor Audio radius centre. It sounds great. Don’t be put off by the size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little sub For such a small unit it give off plenty of quality sounds and lovely deep bass. Looks like a well built piece of kit with a quality finish.
Date published: 2018-06-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I bought another I bought one of these to partner my Eclipse Time Domain speakers. An excellent match indeed, being an eight inch unit it’s more dynamic than a larger unit. So good that I bought another and run one from each channel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service! Very powerful bass for size! This is amazingly small but incredibly deep bass, superb for smaller rooms or where space is limited. Very nice quality construction!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny Box's - Big Sounds -Ruark MR1 mk2 + Minx s201 I purchased the minx s201 to complement my Ruark MR1 mk2's and my ooh my, its a match made in audio heaven. Fed up with muffled mids and flabby bass in my home office I wanted something non fatiguing that I could listen too all day but crank up and have some fun with as well when the mood takes. Being limited on space and not wanting speakers being the dominant part of my working space left me somewhat limited on what I could go for. These as a partnership (although not cheap) are truly amazing. From rock to pop to house to classical they are truly an ear opener. I would put this pairing up against far bigger setups and im convinced they would give a lot of speakers a run for their money. The Kingston Branch team let me loose in the dem room and I think they were quite surprised too. Perfect highs, lows and everything in between. I set the crossover on the sub to 80hz then tweaked the volume for a perfect blend. The sub disappears into the wonderful soundstage of the Ruarks but kicks like a mule when called upon and for such small boxes - they will blow your mind. If you want to minimise space taken and max out your sound quality - go buy them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big sound from a small subwoofer! Was after a small compact subwoofer that would not look huge or ugly in a fairly small lounge. After reading some reviews I spoke to the staff at Richer Sounds, who said it was a great little sub. It will not shake the walls but adds a deep controlled bass to films and music. Gloss white finish looks great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packs a real punch for such a small sub Bought a sound bar recently but it's bass was lacking to say the least. Was told by the wife no more speakers so needed a sub I could hide in a small cupboard. Everyone is now happy. Wife can't see the sub and the bass really kicks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a thumper! Under load or quietly rounding your sound, for its size this sub would adequately fill the largest of lounges. Superb quality!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Packs a punch above it’s weight Bought to replace Tanoy 5.1 in surround sound system and am. Sry pleased with its performance and looks great (in white)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Budget sub-woofer is a winner I bought this from the Kingston branch-when I installed it at home it had a bad earth hum. The manager swapped it for a replacement with no quibble which was good customer service. It may be small but has a big sound-small is good in my living room!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, great aesthetics, so-so reliability I bought a full 5.1 set of Cambridge Audio Minx speakers to go with a new surround system setup. Overall, the system sounds fantastic, especially considering the size of the satellite speakers and this (relatively small) sub. The sub particularly shines and can certainly kick out plenty of bass - bass enough to shake the floor and walls if you need it to, but clean enough and not at all muddy. However, I'm on my second sub unit now, with the first one having failed after about 2 months. There was power getting to it (the lights were on) but no sound. To Richer Sounds credit they arrnaged for it to be collected, checked it, agreed it was faulty, and replaced it immediately with a brand new one. I've only had the replacement a couple of weeks so far, but hopefully, it'll last longer than the previous one. If not, I'll echange it for a different brand.
