About Cambridge Audio Minx XL Speakers
In selecting the drive units for the Minx XL, Cambridge Audio have put sound quality ahead of all other considerations. For this reason, the drive units may not look especially impressive but they do sound it! A silk dome tweeter gives the ideal combination of crisp detail with a smooth refined sound - the ideal compliment for many budget amplifiers. Matching this is a custom-designed woofer with a treated paper cone. Although this might sound basic, the material helps give the Minx XL speakers a fast, responsive sound quality with excellent bass timing.
Rigid MDF Cabinet: Ensuring the drive units sound their very best, the Minx XL uses rigid MDF cabinets. Designed to minimise standing waves, the cabinets help further in producing a clean, accurate sound. For a well balanced bass, even at lower volume levels, the Minx XL speakers are rear ported. Should you which to place the speakers close to a rear wall or use them in a small room then you can dampen the ports with the provided foam inserts, giving a sound more attuned to the room.
Attention To Detail: Although a budget speaker, you might not think it when looking more closely at the Minx XLs. The drive units, for example, are not only recessed but also benefit from hidden fixings. This doesn't just improve the style, it also promotes better sound-staging for a more accurate rendition of the music. The cable terminals are chunky enough to accept thick cables and are also gold-plated for a lower resistance connection. High quality sound through attentive design: the Cambridge Audio Minx XL speakers make music matter.
For Cambridge Audio, life began in the swinging sixties, 1968 to be exact. This was a decade when British bands began to enjoy unprecedented global success, British studios led the way in recording techniques and British manufacturers started to make the best hi-fi equipment in the world, to replay music as naturally as possible. This sound has become recognised as the ‘British’ sound and Cambridge Audio was there at the beginning. Although some of their products are very reasonably priced, don’t assume they are not good. In fact Cambridge Audio set the pace when it comes to value-for-money and the Minx XL speakers are in that category.
