Polk Audio MagniFi Mini review


Powerful punch in a small package ; Expansive soundstage for the size ; Brilliant blend between bar and sub ; Warm and detailed midrange ; Intuitive and concise design

Treble occasionally sounds strident and distorted ; Only one HDMI input ; 5.1 surround is more like 3.1

Offering massive sound in a tiny package, Polk Audio’s Magnifi Mini is one of the most affordable and intuitive sound solutions in the soundbar genre, and one well worth considering for those looking to improve their TV’s sound without even nudging the...

Polk MagniFi Mini sound bar sounds mighty


Who says sound bars have to be big to sound big? This pipsqueak Polk doles out better sound than we expected for its small size and affordable price.

The affordable Polk MagniFi Mini is capable of a much bigger sound than its minuscule size suggests. The package is compact and will fit easily into most living room setups. The ability to Cast directly from your phone simplifies music streaming.

The Wi-Fi connection on my test unit was unreliable, and the ARC-only HDMI input limits connectivity somewhat.

The Polk MagniFi Mini's mix of features, performance and compact size makes it one of the best sound bars for the money.

Polk MagniFi Mini Home Theater Sound Bar System Review


The Polk MagniFi Mini Soundbar and wireless sub has some wonderful features in a small package. Full sound, easy setup and compact size are the main highlights, but it's other features steal the show.

Super Compact size ; Reasonable price ; Extremely easy setup ; Sound clarity at lower volumes

Loss of clarity at higher volumes ; Mid and bass performance could use more punch

Polk Audio MagniFi Mini Sound Bar and Wireless Subwoofer Preview


Polk Audio released their MagniFi Mini soundbar and wireless sub at CEDIA in Dallas, Texas. For $299 you get a great sounding mini soundbar and a wireless subwoofer. Will it be right for you?

Polk Audio MagniFi Mini review: Small in stature but large on sound


If you're looking for a sound bar that sits in a small footprint but gives you a decently bigger sound. Then look no further than the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini.

If you’re looking for a great sounding home entertainment sound system that is also very small. Well, you can’t go wrong with the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini. Its small package hides some large sound inside and it’s solid build quality and useful features...

Polk Audio MagniFi One Review


This is one of the best sound bars in terms of sound quality in our comparison. It has booming bass and clear dialogue – all of which is adjustable to your preference. It does lack some connectivity, including Wi-Fi, and HDMI ports, but if you are fine...

This sound bar has great overall sound quality.

It doesn’t have HDMI ports or Wi-Fi connectivity.

Live TV, movies and music all sound amazing coming through this versatile sound bar.

Polk MagniFi Mini Soundbar System Review


Despite its diminutive size, the MagniFi Mini speaks with a loud and clear voice at a bargain price. I recently purchased one of these and think it's great for casual listening! The highs seem to have a bit of a "processed" sound which seems to be...

Big sound from a tiny speaker; Carefully voiced with neutral tonal balance

No HDMI video passthrough; Sub’s performance limited by its small size

Polk Audio MagniFi Mini Sound Bar Review


You buy a big new TV, the picture quality blew you away in the store, and you're super excited to watch TV and movies on it. Then, disappointment hits — it turns out that that expensive state-of-the-art TV has horrible audio, and it's really difficult...

Polk MagniFi Mini


Once the bastion of space-saving home cinema, it seems that even the trusty soundbar has become too imposing for some living rooms. As a result, there's a growing demand for compact soundbars that deliver room-filling audio from even smaller boxes.

Polk’s feature-packed mini-soundbar delivers a surprisingly big sound from a compact box – but a few sonic shortcomings let the side down.

Polk MagniFi Mini review


Polk's small soundbar promises big sound, but doesn't quite deliver

Good agility ; Big bass ; Spacious sound

Could be more insightful ; Boxy midrange

A small soundbar that needs a bit of refining before it can be a big fish in this particularly crowded pond
