Forbes

The audio quality is the best of any wireless speaker system I have tested

from Forbes

The Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 is an excellent speaker system. Including both Bluetooth and Airplay is a bonus, and the Minx Air app makes it easy to control and manage the speaker from a mobile device. The audio quality is the best of any wireless speaker system I have tested.

The price is the only thing that would make me think twice about buying the Minx Air 200. The Minx Air 200 is available for just under $500 from a variety of sources–making it a pretty major household purchase. The reality, though, is that the Sonos speaker system I aspire to costs significantly more... Full review

Gear Diary

A gorgeous system that offers amazing sound

from Gear Diary
So what do I think about the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200? I like it. No, it doesn’t have the multi-room functionality of something like Sonos or Korus. Then again, neither Sonos nor Korus offers the direct Bluetooth connectivity and the simple direct internet radio of the Minx Air does. And, unlike Korus, with Minx Air no dongle is required. Yes, all three system offer great sound and superb wireless convenience. All three systems provide a great user-expereicne and are bound to impress. But only the Minx Air offers such a wide range of connectivity options,.. Full review

The Minx 200 emits a pleasant stream of warmly intoned audio

from Wired
Ultimately, I question the Minx’s price. You are getting massive sound and two options for wireless streaming. But you don’t get the same pristine audio as with the Wren V5AP or Sony BTX-500. Nor do you get Play-Fi streaming system that works on Android phone and tablets. You can’t take the Minx 200 on picnics or road trips. This is a disappointment. For $600, I want it all... Full review

The sound is rich and warm, with very good bass

from The Gadgeteer
When it comes down to it, I think the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 Wireless Music System is a very well made and good sounding wireless speaker. I just don’t think it’s $600 nice. $300 maybe. But for $600, I think you can do better... Full review
TrustedReviews

A great wireless speaker with AirPlay and Bluetooth that’s only let down by a slightly fiddly interface and setup process

from TrustedReviews
Should I buy the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200? After the slightly disappointing Minx Air 100, we were pleased with the results of its bigger brother. It may cost a bit and won’t make your lounge look particularly stylish, but it does have sound that’s powerful and high-quality enough to act as a main hi-fi. Having both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to play with is also a huge bonus, making the Minx Air 200 a good deal more flexible than some rivals... Full review

The sound reproduction is first-rate

from Gizmag

The simple, clean design of the Minx Air 200 means that it can be placed in almost any room without risk of clashing with the decor. That it has a look of innocence which masks the mighty beast within is just the icing on a very loud cake. I found setting up the various wireless playback options to be quite straightforward. There's a good selection of cabled analog input options, too (though I would have liked to see optical offered as well). The apps have limited functionality, but are easy to use.

I've played every kind of music I could get my hands on through this versatile speak... Full review

Cnet

Its sound quality doesn't live up to its lofty high price

from Cnet
On its own, the Minx Air 200 is an overall solid package, but it loses a lot of its luster once you consider its price and the performance of some of its competitors. If you're looking for a mellow speaker and don't mind paying for it, the Minx Air 200 is worth checking out; otherwise the alternatives generally offer a better value... Full review
TechCrunch

Best home AirPlay speaker

from TechCrunch
This is an excellent choice for an AirPlay/wireless home speaker. A battery would be nice, as there’s a handle for easy enough portability, but in its category, it’s still by far the best choice at the current price, and probably a better option than some of the more expensive ones out there. Cambridge Audio may have waited and let its competitors get a head start in this category, but the wait paid off: The Minx Air 200 is a polished, well-designed piece of audio hardware that confidently tops the competition...

Powerful, well-rounded device with the sonic chops to take on the heavyweights

from PC Magazine
The speaker doesn't distort, even when playing deep bass tracks at top volumes, such as our standard torture test track, The Knife's "Silent Shout." And unlike the smaller Minx Air 100, I didn't hear any compression artifacts even at higher volumes, most likely thanks to the Minx Air 200's separate subwoofer driver that can be worked hard without affecting the midrange and high-end response. I also tested the Minx Air 200 on a table far away from a wall, turning up the subwoofer level dial to compensate. I still thought the speaker could use slightly faster and tighter bass punch...

Superb wireless music system that deserves to be at the top of your audition list

from Digital Trends

While not inexpensive or without strong competition from some of the most respected loudspeaker manufacturers in the world, the Minx Air 200 wireless loudspeaker from Cambridge Audio delivers the audio goods when put under the spotlight. It isn’t the last word in bass response, but this speaker does offer superb resolution, airy highs, and one of the cleanest sounding midranges we’ve ever heard from a desktop wireless loudspeaker.

Aside from a few operational hiccups in regard to its Bluetooth operation and a power on/off sequence that took getting used to, the Minx Air... Full review
