This new soundbar with Dolby Atmos is designed to combine Bluetooth, WiFi for movies, Chromecast and Spotify in a compact design. The subwoofer complements the system for use at home, which the manufacturer promises rich sound.
Polk Audio today announced its new MagniFi Mini AX Compact Speaker System. It’s designed to deliver room-filling Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound for music and movies. The system is optimized with Polk’s patented SDA technology. Users can also stream high-quality songs and podcasts over WiFi via Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast, and Spotify Connect.
In addition, the speaker system is equipped with Bluetooth technology. MagniFi Mini AX connects to any TV. The accompanying wireless subwoofer is designed to deliver rich, deep bass and powerful effects that will do justice to the latest broadcast movies.
According to the manufacturer, the amplifiers are based on Polk’s 50 years of amplifier development experience. You should convince with excellent sound quality. The case is only 37 cm wide. With a built-in speaker system, Polk Audio promises to give every TV deep bass, clear highs, and a spacious 3D sound stage.
Price and availability of the speakers
The Polk MagniFi Mini AX Speaker System will be available in late March for $479 directly from PolkAudio.com or from authorized Polk resellers.
“When designing the MagniFi Mini AX, we set out to create the world’s best ultra-compact speakers,” Frank Stearns, President of Polk Audio. “To do this, we have combined and enhanced Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound functionality with patented Polk SDA technology. The result is a product that not only delivers the same room-filling sound as speaker models three times their size, but also an extremely accurate sound stage. Unique in this category.”
Speaker with Dolby Atmos, DTS: X and more
With Dolby Atmos certified surround sound and DTS:X, MagniFi Mini AX delivers an authentic cinematic listening experience in any room. Polk engineers have enhanced surround sound with patented 4th generation SDA technology, creating a wider, more accurate sound range. 3D sound mode with upmixing function provides standard audio tracks and stereo music with 360° virtual surround sound including virtual height channels. Polk promises all of this in his product ad.
Wireless home audio entertainment with high-quality music streaming
MagniFi Mini AX should not only be a solution for movies, TV shows and games, but also enable WiFi music streaming via Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast and Spotify Connect from smartphones, tablets and computers. It should also be easily connected to mobile devices via Bluetooth.
Dolby Atmos and other features
Good speech clarity is essential for movies, news, sports, and games. The MagniFi Mini AX features Polk’s patented VoiceAdjust™ technology, which works in tandem with the amplifier’s dedicated center channel amplifier. This would make it possible to increase the volume of sounds without changing the overall volume.
The attached wireless subwoofer automatically connects to the subwoofer and can be flexibly positioned up to 7 meters away. Provides the deep bass sound that Polk is known for. BassAdjust improves the tuning of the low frequencies between the subwoofer and subwoofer and allows the subwoofer to be adjusted according to individual sound preferences.
Movie and Music sound modes enhance the sound of the soundbar for content, while Night mode dampens the bass and improves speech clarity so it doesn’t disturb sleepy family members or neighbors even on long movie nights. For more immersive surround sound experiences, users can pair the MagniFi Mini AX with Polk SR2 Wireless Speakers (sold separately for $179) for a 5.1 Dolby Atmos and DTS:X multi-dimensional system.
Easy setup with any TV
To set up the speaker system, a cable is connected to the TV via HDMI eARC / ARC, optical input, or AUX. An HDMI cable is included in the scope of delivery. The OLED display makes the settings understandable and turns off automatically after use. The MagniFi Mini AX comes with a remote control, but it can also be controlled using most TV remotes without additional configuration. It’s also Roku TV Ready certified for easy setup and control.
