Thank you for purchasing a Cambridge Audio Minx Air 100 or Air 200 Wireless
Music System. We are condent that you will enjoy many years of listening
pleasure from it. Like all Cambridge Audio products Minx Air adheres to our three
core principles – stunning performance, ease of use and incredible value.
The Minx Air 100 and Air 200 can wirelessly access a wide range of audio from
most phones, tablets or PCs.
Apple Airplay allows content from iPads, iPhones, iPod touch and any PC/Mac
running iTunes to be simply sent to the Minx Air.
Airplay not only allows playback from the native music playback features of those
devices but also from any streaming service Apps that you have downloaded to
You can simply download and use music Apps such as Spotify, Napster, Pandora,
Rhapsody or others and direct playback to your Minx Air for the best possible sound
For compatibility with Android phones and tablets and a wide range of other
devices, Minx Air also features compatibility with Bluetooth audio.
Any phone, tablet, laptop or PC with Bluetooth audio can play back its content via
Bluetooth on the Minx Air. Again this includes any streaming services or other Apps
you may wish to download.
In addition the Minx Air units feature our curated Internet Radio service which
brings the best stations to you which have been checked by us for reliability and
Over 20,000 stations are currently available with more being added each day.
These can be browsed and set via our free Apps for both Android and Apple (iOS)
devices. These Apps also allow control of the Minx Air for volume, bass , treble and
other features and have built in guides to ease the process of rst setup of the
product on your network.
Internet radio presets can also be recalled from the buttons on the top of the Minx
Air or remote control without needing to use the App.
High quality components are used throughout with both models featuring the latest
in Digital Signal Processing including a 24-bit DSP running algorithms developed
for us by Waves Audio, recipient of a 2011 Technical GRAMMY® award.
Patented BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) speaker drivers deliver a wider, more
room-lling sound than similar-sized traditional speakers.
The Minx Air 100 features two BMRs and 100 watts of output power. The Minx Air
200 features two BMRs plus a Subwoofer and 200watts of output power.
Both models also feature an environmentally friendly low power (<0.5w) standby

Plug-tting Instructions (UK only)
The cord supplied with this appliance is factory-tted with a UK mains plug tted
with a 3-amp fuse inside. If it is necessary to change the fuse, it is important that a
3-amp fuse is used. If the plug needs to be changed because it is not suitable
for your socket, or becomes damaged, it should be cut off and an appropriate
plug tted following the wiring instructions below. The plug must then be disposed
of safely, as insertion into a mains socket is likely to cause an electrical hazard.
Should it be necessary to t a 3-pin BS mains plug to the power cord, the wires
should be tted as shown in this diagram. The colours of the wires in the mains
lead of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying
the terminals in your plug. Connect them as follows:
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be
connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter ‘N’ or coloured BLACK.
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be
connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter ‘L’ or coloured RED.
The wire which is coloured GREEN/YELLOW
must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter ‘E’ or coloured GREEN.
If a standard 13-amp (BS 1363) plug is used, a 3-amp fuse must be tted or, if any
other type of plug is used, a 3-amp or 5-amp fuse must be tted, either in the plug
or adaptor, or on the distribution board.
