The Minx Xi from Cambridge Audio lets you access and enjoy music regardless of your source.  This Bluetooth audio streaming device plays music stored on a smart phone, tablet, or other Bluetooth-enabled device.  In addition to “Standard Bluetooth CODEC (SBC), Minx Xi also supports the much higher quality Bluetooth system, aptX, which sounds even better and squeezes the absolute maximum digital detail out of Bluetooth audio streaming.”  You can also stream music from any UPnP server, NAS drive, or computer on your home network.  Inputs on the back allow you to connect the Minx Xi to set-top boxes or other sources that don’t have Bluetooth, and you can also tune in internet radio stations, and streaming services like BBC iPlayer Radio, Pandora and Rhapsody.  Cambridge says the Minx Xi contains “a high-quality 24-bit/96kHz Wolfson WM8728 DAC that means all sources are delivered in sparkling detail; an oversized toroidal power supply for improved audio quality performance across a wide volume range; Class AB amplifier for great sound, low distortion and superb power efficiency; and external clocking taken from our award winning NP30 network player to minimise jitter in digital audio streams. The result is that Minx Xi sounds as good as it looks.”  It’s available for $899.00.  It will be on display next week in Denver at CEDIA September 25th-28th in booth 3306.  Check the Cambridge Audio site for retailers.
