Product Description

Enjoy genuine hi-fi sound quality but demand discreet style? Then take a look at the ground-breaking Cambridge Audio Minx system! It may be the smallest Minx sub but don't underestimate the performance. Like the other Minx sub, the X201 uses unique Cambridge technology to produce a bass response that is both powerful and tuneful.

Overview

At the heart of the X201 beats Cambridge Audio's sophisticated DSP (Digital Signal Processor). When combined with the digital amplifier, this provides exceptional bass from what is one of the world's smallest subwoofers. To maximise this advantage the bass cones are constructed of one-piece, aerospace grade aluminium. Configured with a single, powered cone and twin passive cones - an innovative Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR) to deliver superior efficiency -  the X201 uses technology never before available at this price range. Compared to the more conventional bass ports you get a greatly enhanced bass response with far more detail and control.

Although small - just a 20cm footprint - the X201 packs a mighty 200 Watts from its active amplifier and offers gain, phase and crossover control for full control and integration with a complete Minx system. Finished in special, scratch-resistant, premium automotive high gloss black paint, the X201 is the perfect match for most hi-fi, home cinema and TV systems. Prepare to be impressed!

Awesome Bass From A Hideaway Sub: At just 22cm (9") cubed, it's hard to find a subwoofer this powerful that's smaller than the Minx X201. What's so great about that? Its diminutive size will make this sub incredibly easy to place in your living room. Under a side table, in a corner, next to your entertainment stand — you can place it almost anywhere without sacrificing your style. And like all Cambridge Audio Minx speakers, the X201 is carefully designed to deliver the purest sound, whether you're enjoying a live classical concert or an adrenaline-pumping car chase.

Engineered With Passion: The Minx X201 uses a 165mm (6-1/2") forward firing driver made of a single piece of super-strong, aerospace-grade aluminum for amazing punch and attack. It's paired with dual passive radiators that add some serious mid-bass boost. Cambridge Audio's software engineers specially designed the sophisticated Digital Signal Processor (DSP) in this sub, allowing it to pump out sensational bass from such a compact enclosure. You may even be fooled into thinking the X201 is several times its size.

Our Take

Yes, this is a small subwoofer. So who would we recommend it to? Speaking with Cambridge and other European manufacturers we soon learn that a huge proportion of the population are living in small apartments or even one bedroom flats and these are mostly high-rise. So putting it simply they just don't have the space for something larger and more powerful nor do they really need it! Looking around major cities here in Australia we realised we have a growing number who prefer or have no option other than being a city apartment dweller and have the same constraints. 

So question is, is the X201 a good buy. Is it the right buy? Unequivocally we answer yes if your living situation is similar to the above or you want a decent ultra compact sub from a quality manufacturer for your bedroom or study. Larger rooms and it may struggle. So anything above 15 square metres with standard ceiling height we would suggest the Minx X301.  With its wide frequency range and three drivers (two passive) it will work well and especially with Cambridge Minx Min series speakers or other brand small speakers.
