Mirage Nanosat 5.1 (platinum/black)

 

Editors' Note: This is the old version of the Mirage Nanosat 5.1. Please see this review for the updated version of the product (available as of September 2008).

These uniquely styled, compact satellite speakers are built around omnidirectional driver technology that creates a huge sound. The all-metal satellite cabinets are exquisitely finished, they have versatile mounting options, and the 8-inch, 75-watt...

The omnidirectional sound makes the Nanosat a less than ideal candidate for placement on a shelf under your TV (in the case of the center channel), and the lack of a crossover switch places that duty on your receiver. While the sound quality is great...

Despite their tiny size, the speakers of the Mirage Nanosat 5.1 System offered positively huge sound on CDs and DVDs, with only a few minor shortcomings.

A compact 5.1 system that fills a room.

 

Picked system up at Vanns for $350. I have a small living room and love the way these speakers disperse the sound, especially the highs. You do need an amp that can easily pump out at least 75w per channel @ 8 Ohms to comfortably drive the speakers....

Compact/barely-noticeable black speakers ; Excellent sound dispersion ; Good price

Sub only adjustable to max 150Hz. 220Hz max would be better as midrange speaker is small

Great speakers, cheaper price (used).

 

I have these speakers by a new 2009 model (surround rears) and the only difference is the price (new models are cheaper) + subwoofer. I used my RCA tools and tested both old (silver) and the new (all black). The sound quality coming from both are the...

Fantastic quality, unbreakable units, high crisps and great midrange. Open grill sounds better than the cloth covered grills of the new one. Fantastic as a center speaker and sounds better than the RC Micro CC that I had before

Bad customer service, store warranty works better, and it isn't as loud as FL tower speakers, better suited for surrounds and cc

"Small but very loud"

 

Let me say I love these tiny speakers they are beyond my expectations. I was going to use my Klipsch Bookshelf speakers as a surround sound speakers but now I am hard pressed to leave my Mirage Nonosat's. The size of these can be placed and mounted...

I bought the system used, speakers are being used as surround sound speakers and they are awesome. Clarity is more than I expected.

Subwoofer is below standard. Not enough boom boom

No more home theater in a box!

Small size, large sound.

Great sound, great buy. Picked up last years models for less than half price.

Amazing sound. Excellent quality.Could not ask for more

 

I bought these speakers with the S8 Sub and a Yamaha receiver at the Magnolia store @ Bestbuy. I had owned the Bose acoustimass 16 and I must say that Mirage gives them a run for the money. I was amazed by the quality and clarity of these speakers. I...

Speakers give amazing sound for such small size. Great quality. Crisp and clear with good bass

nothing negative to say

Product Specifications

Tiny but tough, the award-winning Nanosat 5.1 home theater system is unbelievably powerful. Its speakers can be positioned anywhere in a room and still deliver superior imaging smoothness and three dimensionality, making it a best in its class. Consisting of five matching satellite speakers for front, center and surround channels and a subwoofer, this system is a great choice for both music and movie playback. Each satellite utilizes patented Omnipolar technology to disperse sound in a completely immersive 360-degree pattern. In other words, it recreates the experience of a live event. The simple, ingenious, saucer-shaped deflector suspended over the midrange and tweeter, called an Omniguide, makes it possible. It distributes uniform tonal balance for non-oppressive sound, making the entire room the sweet spot. A perfectly matched Nano subwoofer takes music and movie home theater experiences to the next level, delivering rich, crystal clear bass. It features a powerful 8-inch down-firing driver with patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology, a design that eliminates surround distortion, enabling the subwoofer to play lower with greater output and fidelity. With a system frequency response of 30Hz to 20KHz, this system works equally well in two channel or home theater mode. All you have to do is connect the system and immerse yourself in the sound you love.
