Minx Air 100 review

The Minx Air has a big price tag, but does it have the sound quality to match?

Minx 100

The Minx Air 100 is a big unit, but one that screams style and sophistication as soon as you take it out of the box. Along the front of the Minx is a mesh grille and every bit of it is used to create a fantastic sound experience from the two 4″ drivers that are enclosed there. Along the top are your basic playback and Bluetooth controls and around the back are all the standard ports you’d expect. There’s also a handle to help you life the unit, but you won’t want to move it around too much as it’s surprisingly heavy and the handle doesn’t have any grip on it.

Controlling the Minx can be done in a variety of ways. For one you can connect to the unit through Bluetooth and stream your music wirelessly with little to no interference, you can use the 3.5mm audio jack to connect your Android phone or tablet to the unit, or use one of the dedicated Minx apps. By venturing on to the Play store you can download a few Minx apps to help wirelessly control the unit and also link it with many internet radio sites. The apps are pretty good to use, but we recommend sticking with the likes of Spotify and TuneIn Radio for streaming.

Sound quality is beyond what we expected from this piece of kit and it’s really hard to find any real fault with it. It can be customised to your exact preferences and musical tastes and the range of presets at your disposal is also impressive. The two drivers enclosed in the front mesh may not be the biggest you’ll ever see, but they provide enough power to keep even the most die-hard music fan happy. If you’re on the lookout for a new speaker that gives you plenty of bang for your buck, then look no further than the Minx Air 100.
