Summary: Better volume than I expected, will walk on you on hard surface, sound quality excellent when you mix w/ iPhone options, only disappointment, you can not advance songs thru the speaker only thru the iPhone, however blueuetooth range is comparable to competing units out there
Summary: I was hoping to be blown away by the sound quality of this unit given it bears the Cambridge Audio nameplate, and unfortunately was not after powering it up the first time. I was intending to return it initially, but received it on a Friday and figured I would give it the weekend. Well, I still have the unit and absolutely love it now, it's the perfect size to fit into my backpack with my laptop, it has plenty of power to fill a room or a yard with great sound, and...
Pros: Battery Life Sound Quality Bass Response Size Price
Cons: It tends to spin around if placed on a smooth surface due to the vibration that the subwoofer makes, other than that, no complaints.
Summary: Great product. A little bigger to be fully portable like the Bose mini II. But the sound stage is so much better. Beautiful and well built. The range on the Bluetooth is pretty far. The sound keeps up even at high volumes. The bass with some songs seem to struggle a bit at max volume. Other than that, I think this is the best sound one could get for the price range. The 18 hours is great, and I get a little more out of the battery since I play it at lower volumes.
Summary: I want to thank my Crutchfield rep for directing me to this product. I was trying to decide between the Bose Mini and the next step up Bose portable Bluetooth speakers. I explained that I was looking for a reliable, rechargeable device with great sound and enough volume to fill a small room and can be used outside. I was directed to the Cambridge Audio Minx Go.
Pros: Price, build quality, ease of operation, sound quality.
Summary: I am fairly pleased with this device and would recommend it except for one thing, the Bluetooth performance. It is terrible. I stream music through my Android phone. I can't keep the phone in a pocket and move around even within 2 feet of the Minx Go or it loses reception. One might think it was the phone except that I have a Sony receiver also with Bluetooth that plays flawlessly from much greater distances while in my pocket and moving around.
Pros: Excellent sound, great battery life.
Cons: poor Bluetooth reception. The streaming device must sit next to the Minx Go and remain stationary or it loses signal.
Summary: The speaker sounded very good but i was very disappointed with the Bluetooth performance. Range seemed very limited. To the point i suspect the unit I had might have been defective. I exchanged it for the Bose Sound Link III at twice the price. I will always wonder if the Bluetooth performance was typical of the Minx Go or just a problem with the unit I tried.
Pros: Very good sound
Cons: Bluetooth range an issue, at least with the unit I had.
