The sound of Cambridge Audio
Cambridge Audio's Minx Min 21 proves that great, soul-stirring sound can come from incredibly small speakers. Hook a set of these babies up to your home theater system and get ready to hear extraordinary levels of power and sonic refinement that'll send chills down your spine. Designed for hi-fi sound on a low-fi budget, the Minx Min 21 will instantly fill your living space with a tonal quality that has to be heard to be believed. You'll be blown away by the accuracy, detail, and realism from this stacked speaker that measure just 6" high and less than 4" deep. Whether you're looking to maximize your music or movie experience or add depth to your favorite TV shows and sports events, the Minx Min 21 is waiting to reveal what you've been missing.
Note: These great-sounding satellites require a powered subwoofer.
Engineered with passion
Building upon the highly regarded original Minx Min 20, Cambridge Audio engineers carefully designed the Minx Min 21 at their London facility to deliver even more refined sound, including greater bass extension for better sonic matching with a powered sub. This overachiever rewrites the rulebook of what's possible from miniature speakers thanks to BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) technology. BMR drivers use a flat speaker surface that combines the traditional "pistonic" movement of speaker cones with a "bending-wave" movement to create sound. It's what allows the Minx Min 21 to cover a much wider frequency range than comparably sized speakers. You'll also experience a much broader sound dispersion across your entire room, for the most enveloping sound imaginable. Plus, the compact, acoustically damped cabinet offers extreme rigidity, so you hear pure, clean sound no matter how intense your movies get.
Speakers that fit your lifestyle
Naturally, you want your speakers to fit into your home, rather than having to design your living space around your system. That's why the compact Minx Min 21 satellites can be mounted to your wall, placed on stands, or positioned on a tabletop using optional hardware. You can mix and match between colors, or use the Minx Min 21 models in the front of your room with smaller Minx Min 11s in the back.

Minx Satellite Speaker: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker provides accuracy, detail, and realism from a compact speaker. Its wide dispersion capabilities make it easy to integrate into any room. The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 is designed to be mated with your choice of Cambridge Audio Minx Subwoofer (779X200W, 779X300W, 779X500W; sold separately).
BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) Technology: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker features dual 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) drivers. The Cambridge Audio BMR driver utilizes patented 'bending wave' principles normally seen in advanced flat-panel speakers, combined with piston-movement (backwards and forwards) like in a traditional speaker design. This type of design provides the Minx satellite speaker with a much wider frequency response and deeper and more powerful bass frequencies, plus incredibly spacious sound. The BMR driver design also adds value by delivering a much broader sound dispersion across the entire room, avoiding the typical "sweet spot" pitfall, for a more enveloping sound.
Rubber Surround: The 2.25" BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) driver employs a rubber surround for added durability and excursion.
Neodymium Magnets: The BMR driver utilizes ultra-compact push-pull neodymium magnets for greater efficiency.
Frequency Response: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker features a 120Hz to 20,000Hz frequency range.
Power Handling: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker can handle 15 to 50 watts (RMS).
Compact Enclosure: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker features a 3.125" (w) x 6.125" (h) x 3.75" (d) enclosure.
Acoustic Suspension: The Minx MIN21 satellite speaker features an acoustic suspension (sealed) enclosure for greater detail and tonal accuracy.
Acoustically Damped Cabinet: The Minx MIN21 satellite speaker employs an acoustically damped thermo-polymer and extruded aluminum cabinet to prevent distortion caused by resonance and vibration.
Removable Grille: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 includes a detachable cloth grille.
High-Gloss Finish: The Minx MIN21 is available in a high-gloss black (with black cloth grille) or high-gloss white finish (with silver cloth grille). The black and white high-gloss lacquers are finished to the highest standard using paint application techniques developed by premium automotive manufactures. The black and white lacquer finishes are hard to scratch and easy to clean.
Binding Posts: The Cambridge Audio Minx MIN21 satellite speaker is equipped with a pair of binding post terminals. The binding post terminals will accept bare-wire, pin-connectors, and spade-connectors. The terminals are color-coded (black/red) to distinguish between positive and negative.
Banana Plugs: The satellite speaker's binding post terminals can be removed to allow use of banana plugs (single only). The binding post terminals simply pull out of the back of the speaker, which allows access to banana connector inputs.
Placement: The speaker can be mounted vertically or horizontally (as center-channel speaker). The speaker should be angled toward the listener, if possible.
Table-Top Mount: The Minx MIN21 satellite speaker comes with four self-adhesive rubber feet to simply place the speaker securely on a table or shelf. There is also an optional Minx Table-Top Stand (779MTSA, sold separately) available, which allows placement on a desk, table, or shelf.
Wall Mount: The Minx MIN21 features a rear-mounted 6mm threaded insert which allows you to wall-mount the speaker using the included keyhole-slot adapter, the Cambridge Audio Minx Wall Bracket (779MPWM, sold separately), or other optional wall-mount bracket (sold separately).
Speaker Stand: The 6mm threaded insert on the back of the satellite speaker can be used to attach the speaker to the Cambridge Audio Minx Floor Stands (779MFSB, sold separately).
