Mirage MX 5.1

 

Just when we thought satellite/subwoofer systems couldn't get any smaller, along comes the ultracompact Mirage MX 5.1 retailing for $1,200. (Mirage calls it a "Home Theater System," but it's really just a surround speaker package that requires a...

Incredibly tiny 5.1-channel home theater speaker package; includes matching 800-watt mini-subwoofer; Omnipolar technology produces huge, room-filling sound; extra satellites are available.

The MX's imaging isn't as precisely focused as that of standard boxy speakers--it may be too diffused for some tastes; these mighty mites are just too small for large listening rooms.

Innovative engineering solutions propel Mirage's MX 5.1 Home Theater System to the top spot in the small system/big sound sweepstakes.

Compact home theater speakers

 

If you're shopping for small speakers that that can fill an average-size room with big sound for both movies and music, look no further than the Mirage MX 5.1. Despite the satellite speakers' very small size, the MX 5.1 can deliver surprisingly deep...

Good sound for movies and music, eye-catching appearance, good bass response

Not for large rooms, imaging not as precise as other surround-sound systems, tricky speaker positioning, finding the right crossover frequency can take some work, expensive

'\x93My listening space is rather large but the MX Satellite\x92s did a great job of filling my room with nicely balanced and detailed sound. Dialogue from the center speaker was crisp and intelligible. The sound had a nice height which seemed to float...

Far from the complete package but its dimensions mean it will appeal to plenty

Compact; easy to accommodate; good sound dispersion that fills the room; good integration

Lacks precision; dynamics and power can?t compete with larger speakers; gives away detail to rivals

First of all, let me start by saying I am not an "audiophile." I like to have quality units in my home theater system and, after research, chose this product.

Speakers are very small, but still pack a strong punch

The cons I have experienced are minimal

A great choice for a small, affordable, high-end system

Speakers are very small, but still pack a strong punch ; Crystal clear sound

The cons I have experienced are minimal ; Cannot use banana plugs for the MX product line ; Glossy finish collects dust

Product Specifications

Offering "Minimum Exposure and Maximum Excitement", the MX home theater system delivers big, immersive audio entertainment from the smallest set of speakers yet. Whether you want to relax to smooth tunes or host a movie screening, the MX home audio speakers serve up some serious wow factor - immersive sound that won't drown out your decor or intrude upon your everyday lifestyle. Consisting of five itty bitty speakers and a miniature subwoofer cube, the MX is a sophisticated surround sound system that perfectly demonstrates what's possible using all of today's incredible technologies. In fact, its extremely high-performance drivers and components will blow you away, so hold on tight. Each two-way MX speaker has a maximum power handling of 100 watts, allowing it to work well with a wide variety of amplifiers. Inside each durable polycarbon enclosure, you'll find a pure titanium hybrid tweeter for warm, rich high frequencies and a 2.5-inch aluminum woofer for substantial, low distortion bass performance. However, the fact that Mirage was able to apply its unique Omnipolar technology to a product this size is the most impressive feature of them all - it's what makes these small audio speakers sound huge and immersive. At the core of Omnipolar technology, you'll find the patented Omniguide module, which has two deflectors. While one deflector rests on top of the speaker's tweeter, the tweeter itself is housed in a deflector, suspended over the woofer. These combined elements distribute sound directly towards the listener, as well as reflect it off walls, ceilings and other surfaces - resulting in a 360-degree soundstage that evenly permeates the listening environment. An 8-inch cube constructed of rigid MDF, the MX system's MM-6 subwoofer employs an 800-watt amplifier, dual 6.5-inch black anodized aluminum passive radiators and a 6.5-inch anodized aluminum cone woofer with an inverted Ribbed Elliptical Surround, delivering tight, powerful bass response with low distortion. The subwoofer also includes a proprietary protection circuit, letting you achieve clear bass at all volume levels. A low pass filter with bypass mode allows the subwoofer to blend perfectly with the other MX speakers, using the built-in crossover or a home theater receiver.
