Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 Review
Audio Quality:

Seriously folks, if you take pride in telling your friends that you’re a hardcore audiophile, you’ll surely be impressed with the quality put out by the Cambridge Audio Air Minx 100. Thanks partly to the stellar hardware that’s inside of its body and the various technologies behind it all, like its built-in apt-X support and acoustically damped construction, there’s no shortage of robustness with its overall audio output.

More than effective to cover larger rooms in a house, like the living room or entertainment center area, the quality is most pleasant when the volume of both the speaker and connected device (iPhone 5 in this case) are placed in the middle volume setting. Specifically, the sounds that are emitted by the Air Minx 100 are rich and clean in tone – while the accompanying bass sprinkles on that tangible level of crispness to the overall quality. At the loudest setting, though, we notice some strain with the output, so it’s most ideal to have it in the neutral spot towards the middle. As a whole, it easily blows away most of the other portable wireless Bluetooth speakers we’ve checked out in the past, as its ferocity is most discernible from the onset.


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 additional components thrown into the mix to give it the same modern touch like its rivals, such as a charging dock of some sort for an iPhone, to somehow remotely appease us in making believe that it’s really sporting a price tag of $449, which it is. Well, that’s simply the problem with the Air Minx 100 – it’s just too darn pricey! Unless you’re particular about the fine details of how audio is heard, you might want to look at other options that are more affordable. Then again, if money isn’t one bit of a concern to you, then there’s no denying that you’ll be astounded by the glorious audio that it’s able to muster.
