One of the modern-day home theater‘s most vital pieces of equipment is the almighty soundbar. With countless audio manufacturers unveiling a new take on one every year, it’s grown difficult to find the perfect one for your space, be it from a design or sonic perspective. In efforts to take all the powerful, audial glory it offers with its other items, Polk’s Magnifi Mini AX looks to shrink the typical package of the soundbar without shedding sound quality in the slightest.
The San Diego-based manufacturer’s latest soundbar is further proof that you should never judge a book by its cover. Measuring a mere 14.5 inches wide, the Magnifi Mini AX boasts an impressive five-speaker array and 5″ x 7″ woofer that maximizes music quality to baffling levels. Plus, thanks to seamless Chromecast, Bluetooth, and AirPlay 2.0 compatibility, you can stream directly from your library with the utmost ease.
In addition to its entry-level connectivity, the small-scale soundbar’s most exciting element is its implemented Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio tech, providing an immersive, next-level listening experience that you wouldn’t believe has been jam-packed into such a small package. Polk’s fourth-generation Sound Bar SDA technology also assists in expanding the field of sound very precisely.
If you’ve been on the lookout for a soundbar worthy of your home theater, but other options seem too obstructive, then Polk’s new release is beyond ideal. The Magnifi Mini AX is available now through the company’s website for $499.
