Cambridge Audio - Minx Min 22 Compact Satellite Speaker Each
Cambridge Audio Minx Min 22 Compact Satellite Speaker Each
We're big fans of Cambridge Audio here at Crutchfield, so when they dropped by recently to demonstrate their newest gear, our training room was packed. Among the impressive demos we enjoyed was their Minx Min 22, an ultra-compact bookshelf speaker. Hooked to a Cambridge Audio integrated amp and paired with a Minx X301 powered sub, a pair of these little gems knocked us out with a wide, deep, and detailed sound that totally filled the room. Cambridge explained that one of the secrets to the Min 22's amazing sound was the latest evolution to their renowned flat-piston driver, the BMR, or Balanced Mode Radiator.
The "BMR" advantage for natural, spacious sound
What's this driver's secret, a flat speaker surface that combines the traditional "pistonic" movement of speaker cones with a "bending-wave" movement to create sound. That's what allows the Min 22 to cover a much wider frequency range than other comparably sized speakers. You'll also experience much broader sound dispersion across your entire room. Plus, the compact, acoustically damped cabinet offers extreme rigidity for pure, clean sound no matter how intense your music or movies get.
What makes the 4th generation BMR driver special
The Minx Min 22's latest 4th generation BMR driver features more rigid construction than previous designs for even better dispersion. That extra-wide dispersion means you can put your speakers where you want and still enjoy deep, spacious stereo or surround sound throughout your entire room. This makes Minx Min speakers ideal for room layouts where your speaker placement options are less than optimal. The new BMR driver also features a larger magnet structure for greater efficiency, and increased driver excursion for better integration with a subwoofer, and richer sound. Along with the new BMR, the Min 22 incorporates a custom, dedicated woofer for further improvement to the bass handling.
Speakers that fit your lifestyle
Naturally, 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 Min 22 satellites include a keyhole slot wall mounting bracket. They can also be swivel-mounted to your wall, placed on stands, or positioned on a tabletop using optional hardware. You can mix and match between colors. Use the larger Minx Min 22 models in the front of your room with the even smaller Minx Min 12s in the back.
