Engadget Summary

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.
