Cambridge Audio manages to bring enough to the table -- and your ears -- with the Minx Air 200 to justify that high price. Its design is subtle, as PC Mag feels the "overall design errs on the side of understated—a bit too much so," but MSN UK is a bit more accepting, saying that "subtlety is its beauty." Behind that subtle design, though, is a sound experience What Hi-Fi calls "big and expansive." Pocket-Lint was equally impressed, saying that "sound is very clean and distortion free." Even with AirPlay and Bluetooth built in, the $599 asking price is a bit steep for most. If you're looking for cheaper options, you can pick up the Big Jambox for half the price, but if you do go with the Minx Air 200, the expense is justified.

If you want music in the kitchen, music in the bedroom, music on the deck, music in the garage—basically, music anywhere with a power outlet—this $599 product is well worth the price. It certainly was a big hit in my home.

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.

There's nothing that the Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200 doesn't do that it should, and, indeed there's nothing that it does do that it shouldn't. Powering on takes 10 seconds or so and, well, it could be free, but, frankly, we're reaching for bad things to say about it.
