Engadget Summary

The Minx Air 100 is a compact wireless speaker that lets you stream music wirelessly at a reasonable price. If you like your speakers to stand out and be flashy, you may not like what CNET calls "an understated design" for the Minx Air 100. A notable feature of the Minx Air is its ability to stream music from your Bluetooth or AirPlay capable device -- or music services like Spotify -- without the need of a mobile app. When listening to music, Slashgear says "there’s an impressively broad soundstage during playback." What Hi-Fi had a similar experience, saying of the Minx Air 100, "it’s a big sound from a small speaker" but warns that you "never forget where the sound is coming from."
