Big Sound, Even Bigger Price

 

Six hundred stones buys you quite a lot of digital gratification these days. So if you're going to pay $600 for a wireless speaker, it had better be worth it.

Two wireless signals let you fill any room with sound from your PC, smartphone, or tablet. Well-engineered, easy-to-use iOS and Android apps

Way too expensive for inconsistent sound quality. No Play-Fi streaming for Android devices. No battery power. Confusing buttons

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200

 

When a Bluetooth or AirPlay speaker crosses the $500 mark, you expect to be impressed. Yes, it has to sound good, and yes, it has to look good, but it also has deliver just a little something extra to make you throw out reason and spend more than you...

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 is an attractive wireless speaker, with an understated design that blends well into most environments. It supports both Bluetooth and AirPlay, plus it can directly stream Internet radio without the need for a separate...

The Minx Air 200 doesn't sound as good as other speakers in its price class. Despite the handle on the back, it's not truly a portable speaker, as it lacks a built-in battery. AirPlay setup can be slightly difficult for networking neophytes. And while...

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 is a big, well-designed wireless speaker that supports Bluetooth, AirPlay, and Internet radio, but its sound quality doesn't live up to its lofty high price.

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200

 

Cambridge Audio scores on its first outing designing wireless speakers with the Minx Air 200, a powerful, well-rounded device with the sonic chops to take on the heavyweights.

Smooth, transparent sound quality. Near-thunderous bass extension and impressive power for a wireless speaker. Supports both Bluetooth and AirPlay wireless streaming. Well-designed enclosure

Expensive. Slightly sluggish bass response. Mild background hiss. Complex AirPlay setup

The London-based Cambridge Audio isn't a household name here in the states, but it's well-regarded among high-end audio enthusiasts familiar with the company's beautiful-sounding stereo components. Now Cambridge Audio is moving into the ever-popular...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 Review

 

With so many AirPlay and Bluetooth-enabled products in the marketplace, one would think that wireless speakers offering both technologies would be common and affordable at this point. However, the reality is that it's pretty tough to find a single-box...

Excellent sound quality ; Fits easily on desktop, table, or console ; AirPlay and Bluetooth compatibility ; Built like a tank

Bluetooth set-up and operation is quirky ; Operational issues ; Remote control isn’t fun to use ; Expensive

It isn’t the last word in bass response, but the Air Minx 200 does offer superb resolution, airy highs, and one of the cleanest sounding midranges we’ve ever heard from a desktop wireless loudspeaker.

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 Wireless Music System Review

 

The Minx Air200 from Cambridge Audio is a $600 AirPlay and Bluetooth speaker. Yes, we're high rollin' today. At that price I realized that it had better impress me or this would be a very tough review

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 Wireless Music System review

 

A couple months ago I posted a review of the Cambridge Audio Minx Go and concluded at that time that it was my current favorite small speaker. Then I was given the opportunity to try the Minx Go's bigger brother, the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200...

Great sound ; AirPlay ; Internet radio with custom presets ; Built in handle

Expensive ; Slight hiss when not playing audio ; No built-in battery for portability

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 review

 

Sorry, can you speak up a bit - said, perhaps a little too loudly. We've recently had a fairly ear-splitting experience with a portable speaker system. The speaker in question was the Minx Air 200 from Cambridge Audio. The ear-splitting experience came...

Bonkers, stylish, incredibly powerful, great sound, amazing bass

Expensive, controls a little fussy, Blutooth re-connection a little fussy

What can we say apart from that we have fallen for this Minx. The volume, quality and low-end response of the Air 200 are nothing short of mind-blowing. We've heard far bigger hi-fi systems do a far worse job of sound, and produce much less bass than...

A top-quality wireless speaker with Bluetooth and AirPlay

Powerful, balanced sound ; Good bass depth ; Versatile

Poor mobile app ; Expensive

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 is a great wireless speaker with AirPlay and Bluetooth that’s only let down by a slightly fiddly interface and setup process.

Good sound and wireless connectivity, but it's let down by a poor and complicated app

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 review

 

This follow-up to Cambridge Audio's tasty wireless speaker, the Minx Air 100, is even more ear-lickingly impressive

A crowd-pleaser with its connections, the Minx Air 200 might not be a looker but the sound is big and powerful
