New Minx Go Speaker System

Small package. Big sound. The new Minx Go Bluetooth Speaker ($149) from Cambridge Audio delivers crisp tones across the spectrum without mushing out the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity. Accordingly, you can blast out your tunes from any Bluetooth-equipped device such as your iPhone, iPod, or iPad.

You can fill a room with sound no problem, but you also can take it outdoors on a picnic or camping trip, boating and biking. I like using mine while gardening too. It’s compact, so you can stuff it in a bag and take it with you on the road. You can take it to work with you too, and flood your office with dulcet tones. It measures 9.3- x 4.8- x 2.4-inches and weighs 2.4 pounds.

It has a USB charging port and will deliver up to 18 hours play time with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. After 30 minutes of inactivity, it has an automatic shutdown feature to save battery life. The driver units include two 50 mm 2-inch woofers and two, 19 mm .75-inch titanium dome tweeter, plus a rear-firing bass radiator.

It connected seamlessly with the several Bluetooth devices I tested it with, which is also a welcome feature as some devices are pesky to connect. It also has a 3.5 mm input jack, so you can connect it to non-Bluetooth devices as well.

I was impressed with the solid construction and the sleek design. It comes in your choice of black or white.
