The Minx Go isn’t our normal style of Bluetooth speakers and is missing the bells and whistles like a speakerphone. Also, the Minx Go may not be the smallest speaker, but Cambridge Audio focuses on audio performance and that’s just what they delivered. While the Minx Go is Bluetooth enabled, it’s compatible with any Bluetooth device including iOS and Android powered devices; such as iPhones, iPads, tablets, and more. It is even compatible with desktops and gaming consoles which include Bluetooth interfaces. The Minx Go remembers the last 8 devices that have been paired reducing the hassle of constantly re-pairing.

From a distance of 10 meters (33ft), the exceptional sound quality and hands free controls for both your music and your phone will surprise you with this device. This speaker might be big, but it’s not afraid to make itself known. The dual 2-inch woofers and dual 0.75 inch dome tweeters, plus the bass radiator in the back will have no issues delivering excellent sound quality to your party.

While the battery size isn’t specified, the battery is an “intelligent” lithium rechargeable battery that lasts 24 hours, which is astounding. Don’t be surprised when it finally dies with no warning since there is no audible warning of a low battery or visual indicator. Their is a power saving mode where after 30 minutes of inactivity, the unit will power down. At the time of the review, the speaker was found for $149.00 USD with an included 2 year manufacturers warranty. Considering the quality and durability of this speaker, this is still a great buy and a great price. I would easily recommend this speaker as a home use or bookshelf speaker in the $150-200 price range. The Cambridge Audio: Minx Go easily earns our PureOverclock Editors Choice award.
