CAMBRIDGE AUDIO’S NEW Minx Xi streaming digital music system is designed to cater to a wide range of computer music fans. The Minx Xi combines simple access and control with audiophile grade components in a compact and stylish unit.
It allows users to stream music from any brand of Bluetooth device and to play high-resolution music stored on a home network from any UPnP server, NAS drive or computer. It also supports internet radio and a number of streaming services including BBC iPlayer Radio, Pandora and Rhapsody.
The Minx Xi is said to be ideal for everyone from hi-fi enthusiasts or the more casual music lover, and it’s easy to use thanks to a clear and intuitive display and the free Stream Magic app available for Apple and Android devices.
As well as streaming music by Bluetooth, wireless or wired network, users can also hook up set-top boxes and games consoles to the digital inputs, plug in local media to the two USB inputs, or connect devices to the three analogue sockets. The two USB sockets will also charge phones and tablets, and in addition, users can add a subwoofer to create a 2.1 system.
Premium quality components include a 40 watt (into 8 Ohms) Class AB amplifier, an oversized toroidal power supply and a Wolfson WM8728 24-bit/96kHz digital-analogue converter.
