Cambridge Audio Sound: Patented speaker technologies are combined with
powerful digital amplifiers and processing to offer high-quality performance
from a wireless speaker system
- Digital Amplifier: A 200-watt (peak) class-D digital amplifier
delivers expansive power from compact desktop system.
- Digital Signal Processing: The 24-bit Digital Signal Processor
(developed by Waves Audio) provides
consistent performance for whatever you're listening to, and however loud
you're listening to it. Unlike many other portable systems, your music stays
distortion-free, even at top volume.
- Dual Balanced Mode Radiators + 6" Subwoofer: Two 2.25" patented BMR (Balanced Mode
Radiator) speaker drivers deliver a wider, more room-filling sound than
similarly-sized traditional speakers. Regular speakers (like you'll find in
other portable systems) move in and out to create sound. These BMR speakers
create sound using horizontal vibration modes for a much wider sound which
is hugely beneficial when speakers are located so closely together. The
built-in 6" subwoofer adds rich, enhanced bass performance.
- Bass Port: The powered
speaker enclosure employs a rear-firing port to greater efficiency and
deeper bass. The rear-firing bass port also doubles as a carry
- Acoustically Damped Construction: Beneath the scratch
resistant high gloss lacquer, Minx Go's acoustically damped cabinet is
designed to eliminate vibration and distortion, even at high volumes.
- Adjustable Bass Control: Changing this setting allows the
bass/low frequency response of the Minx Air 200 to be tailored to your taste
and the acoustics of your room.
Wireless or Wired Network Connection: The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200
features a rear-panel RJ-45 Ethernet port (10/200 Base-T) and built in WiFi (IEEE 802.11 b/g)
for either a wired or wireless connection to your home, so you can enjoy
Internet Radio and AirPlay. The built-in WiFi supports WEP, WPA, and WPA2
- AirPlay Technology: Using AirPlay wireless audio
streaming technology, the Minx Air 200 streams music from your iTunes
account, iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad anywhere you have a WiFi network in
your home. Apple's AirPlay technology allows music from your iTunes, to be
streamed wirelessly from your Mac or PC to the Minx Air 200. You can even
bypass your computer entirely, and wirelessly stream your iTunes music and
music apps directly from your Apple iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad; via
Apple's free Remote app. The Minx Air 200 and your Apple device or
computer must be connected to the same wireless network via WiFi
(802.11b/g). AirPlay works with iPod touch/iPhone/iPad (running iOS 4.3.3+)
and Mac computers or Windows PC (with iTunes 10.2.2+ installed).
- Internet Radio: The included Internet Radio service offers 20,000
stations from any genre and most countries. Stations can be tuned using the
Minx Air App on your compatible Apple iOS or Android device. Internet radio
presets (up to 10) can also be recalled from the buttons on the top of the
Minx Air 200 or remote control without needing to use the app on your
smartphone. Cambridge Audio maintains the list of stations and regularly
check the stations are reliable and of reasonable quality.
Minx App Air: The Minx Air App (from
Google Play) enables setup and control of the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200
wireless music system from your Apple iPod touch/iPad/iPhone (iOS 5.0+) or
Android (3.0+) smartphone/tablet. Use this app to find your favorite internet radio
stations from a library of over 20,000 stations and store up to 5 presets. You
can also control the wireless music system's volume, Bass, and DSP presets from
Bluetooth aptX: The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 offers built-in
Bluetooth for wireless connection between the portable speaker and your
Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry,
laptop/computer, or other device. You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored
music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device to the Cambridge
Audio Minx Go. The Minx Air 200's aptX support squeezes the absolute maximum
digital detail out of Bluetooth wireless streaming audio (if your device also
supports it) for CD-quality playback of high-bitrate digital audio. You will
continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to navigate your music and to view
song/artist information. This unit pairs with your Bluetooth-enabled device with
a single press of a button and can pair with up to 8 devices (only one can be
used at a time). Once paired, the Minx Go will automatically re-connect with
your device when in wireless range (up to 33').
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200.
Dual Aux Inputs: The Minx Air 200 is fitted with two rear-panel Aux
inputs. There is a 3.5mm auxiliary input that lets you connect almost any
portable audio device with a headphone jack output. There is also a stereo RCA
input which lets you connect your home audio components, such as a CD player.
Remote Control: The Minx Air 200 comes with an 18-button IR remote
control for wireless operation of the system. The remote includes Power On/Off,
Volume Up/Down, Mute, Preset (1-10), Bass +/-, and Stop buttons.

of standard household current using the included AC power cord. To help save energy the Cambridge Audio Minx Air Wireless
Music System will automatically power down if no user activity or audio
playback is detected within an adjustable user defined time period (adjustable from 23hrs, 45minutes to 15 minutes, or OFF)
