Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 looks prettier than it sounds

 

It's a great-looking wireless speaker that supports Bluetooth, AirPlay, and Internet radio, but the Minx Air 100's sound quality is underwhelming, especially for its price.

The ; 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 mobile device.

The Minx Air 100 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.

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 review

 

When an audiophile-centric company like Cambridge Audio makes a go at the wireless-speaker market, it can be tough to tell whether it's just hoping to make a quick buck or has a worthwhile new take on the category. The Minx Air 100 ($450) falls into...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100

 

The Minx Air 100 doesn't deliver the most exciting sound, but it's the best small wireless speaker we've heard for jazz and classical music, at least at this price.

Impressively detailed sound. Supports both AirPlay and Bluetooth wireless streaming. Well-designed enclosure.

Overall sonic presentation lacks oomph. Slight background hiss. Complex AirPlay setup.

Performance and Conclusions Inside is a 100-watt class-D amplifier driving a pair of 4-inch balanced mode radiator drivers. Contrast this to the larger Minx Air 200, which employs 2.25-inch drivers and a separate 6.5-inch subwoofer. Still, the Minx Air...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 Review

 

Does the world need another AirPlay speaker? Cambridge Audio thinks so, and the new Minx series of streaming media players is the result: the Minx Air 100 , on the SlashGear test bench today, and its doubly-powerful Air 200 sibling. It's not hard to...

At £329, the Minx Air 100 finds itself more expensive than the £259 PLAY:3 but competitive against other AirPlay speakers. In the case of the Sonos, you trade the potential for multi-room support and the slickness of Sonos’ remote experience for...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 Review

 

Attempting to steer itself into new territory, Hi-Fi products maker Cambridge Audio is hoping to get some notoriety amongst the Bluetooth speakers market to shift its momentum forward. In order to do just that, they recently introduced one of its first...

Crisp audio quality ; Sturdy construction ; Includes a remote control

Expensive ; No manual equalizer options with Air Minx app

Not surprisingly, the Cambridge Audio Air Minx 100 is a wonderful centerpiece for any home theater system set up that you might have going on at home – even more when its quality is soundly deep to the core. Ideally, we would’ve liked to see some...

Review: Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100

 

If there was any doubt as to whether or not the audio industry is still catering to Apple users, the recent glut of wireless AirPlay enabled speakers on the market should put your mind at ease. It was not all that long ago that you couldn't find a...

Airplay and BlueTooth connectivity, nice design, Internet Radio presets, Solidly built

Good, but not great sound quality for the price, WiFi setup needlessly complicated

The Minx 100 is a good speaker, solidly built, offering a nice range of connection options, as well as the ability to stream internet radio stations without the need for an iDevice. However we felt the sound quality was slightly lacking given the price...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 + 200 Bluetooth + AirPlay Wireless Speakers

 

After two and a half rough years, AirPlay wireless speakers appear to be fading away. Well-publicized issues with AirPlay chip pricing and performance led a number of big players to discontinue past models and cancel future releases, leaving a small...

Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100

 

A wireless speaker with AirPlay and Bluetooth for limitless audio streaming.

Top build quality ; Versatile streaming ; Not picky about placement

Quite pricey ; Sound lacks finesse

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 is a top-quality device in most respects. It boasts excellent build quality and enough well-implemented features to make it truly versatile, if not truly portable. However, we were a little disappointed by the...
