Polk Audio today announced the MagniFi Mini, their first ultra-compact home theater sound bar with included wireless subwoofer for $299. The two-piece system is ideal for small spaces like bedrooms and smaller living spaces. Plus it can do double duty wireless music streaming directly from a smartphone, tablet or other compatible device via Google Cast or Bluetooth.
Although it is small, only 13.4 inches long and 3.1 inches tall, the MagniFi Mini packs four 2.25 inch drivers and two 12mm tweeters into its compact frame. The included slim wireless subwoofer unloads deep bass, perfectly complementing the sonic spectrum and providing the impact needed to deliver a truly immersive listening experience. Additionally, with Polk’s patented SDA surround technology and 5.1 Dolby Digital decoding, movies and music come alive without sacrificing valuable room real estate.
“The MagniFi Mini delivers the performance of sound bars more than twice its size. It’s also the only compact sound bar that comes standard with a wireless subwoofer, HDMI, Google Cast, and Polk’s patented Voice Adjust and SDA surround sound technologies,” said Michael Greco, global brand director, Polk Audio.
Polk’s latest sound bar option makes it incredibly easy for users to personalize their home theater and music listening experience. Featuring Polk’s patented Voice Adjust technology, which emphasizes vocals independent of program material and volume level, users are met with clean, crisp dialogue whether sitting directly in front of the TV or off to the side. The sound bar also features Night mode, dropping the low frequency response of the sound bar and sub’s driver array, reducing the amount of sound that carries, so sleeping roommates or family members are less likely to be disturbed. Additionally, the MagniFi Mini offers several one-button preset EQ settings, including Movies, Music and Sports, optimizing the sound bar and subwoofer to provide the clearest dialogue, surround sound and bass for the best audio experience.
With Google Cast integration, users have the ability to control music from an array of Cast-compatible audio apps on their mobile devices and have them play through the MagniFi Mini. Additionally, with the advent of Google Cast’s multi-room audio, the MagniFi Mini can be paired with any Google Cast-enabled speaker around the home for an ad hoc whole-home audio system at a fraction of the cost of competing mesh audio systems. For ultimate ease-of-use, the MagniFi Mini is universally compatible with any television, cable box or satellite IR remote control, eliminating the need for multiple remotes and comes with both an HDMI and optical cable for easy connection to TVs.
