Product Description

Until now, there’s been a stark choice of opting for great sounding but relatively large speakers or choosing a stylish mini speaker system that looks the part, but fails to stir your soul when the music starts.


The science behind Minx speakers is difficult to explain, but much of the magic comes courtesy of an intensive two-year development programme by Cambridge Audio’s engineers to achieve extraordinary sound from incredibly small cabinets. Now thanks to Minx MIN12's, you can experience extraordinary levels of power and refinement from staggeringly small speakers. With a suitable amp or receiver and subwoofer, the MIN12's will bring all your favourite music, movies, sports and TV shows to life in a way that'll make you sit up in amazement. If you enjoy genuine hi-fi sound quality but demand discreet style, then take a look at the ground-breaking Cambridge Audio Minx MIN12 speaker system!

The BMR Effect: The Minx MIN12 rewrites the rulebook of what's possible from miniature speakers thanks to BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) technology. Using a single, BMR drive unit, the MIN12 satellite speakers give pinpoint accuracy and are bursting with detail. BMR technology combines the advantages of both flat panel and conventional speakers. 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 MIN12 to cover a much wider frequency range than comparably sized speakers. This means that, unlike some small speakers, the MIN12 satellites are truly dynamic and won't turn harsh or brittle when the music or film action gets intense. You'll also experience much broader sound dispersion across your entire room. The latest BMR driver also features a larger magnet structure for greater efficiency, and increased driver excursion (2.2mm to 4mm) for improved bass handling, better integration with a subwoofer, and richer sound. 

Rigid Enclosure: Little bigger than a Rubik's Cube, the MIN12 is already incredibly discreet and easy to place. Engineered from acoustically damped thermo polymer and extruded aluminium, MIN12 is built to last and designed to suit almost any room in your home. Its sleek organic contours and a range of placement options make them a true design statement. Compatible electronics are both easy and inexpensive, so you'll be able to connect to a wide variety of Home Theatre Receivers or Amplifiers. Minx MIN12's will instantly fill your small living space with a tonal quality that has to be heard to be believed. 

True Lifestyle Speakers: Neat and ultra, ultra compact, the Cambridge Audio MIN12's are absolutely discreet and easy to position. Logically, 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 MIN12 satellites include a mounting socket on the back for quick and inexpensive wall mounting. The MIN12 has an infinite baffle cabinet - in other words it is sealed - and so is often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power (Wattage) than typically more efficient bass reflex designs. However, today we have a number of basic stereo amplifiers and A/V Receivers that will do a good job, but remember, they really must be connected with a subwoofer. 

More Minx Mounting Options: As impressive as the big sound is, the fact that it comes from a box just 8cm cubed is astounding. For added convenience there's a wide range of stands and brackets available. Choose from a simple wall mount, a stylish aluminium table top stand or a full size floor stand - whichever way you mount it, the MIN12 just "disappears" within the room. Finished in special, scratch-resistant, premium automotive gloss black paint, the MIN12 are the perfect match for many hi-fi, home theatre and TV systems. Prepare to be impressed!

Our Take

We've been big fans of Cambridge Audio for many years, so when they released their new Minx MIN12 we knew that it would be a winner. Seriously, speakers this small shouldn't sound this good! We would recommend you also purchase the Minx X301 powered subwoofer or better as none of these speaker types are designed to be used as stand alone. Look for one of our package deals and then be prepared to enjoy a wide, deep and detailed sound that will knock your socks off. Finally, the MINX MIN12 speaker systems are designed for smaller sized rooms up to 25 square metres. Whether you’re looking to maximise your music or movie experience or add depth to your favourite TV shows and sports, Minx MIN12 is waiting to show you what you’ve been missing.
