Polk Audio announced its latest sound bar system, the ultra-compact MagniFi Mini AX. Polk’s newest offering connects effortlessly to any TV and delivers the rich, deep bass and dramatic impact that today’s latest streaming blockbusters demand.
The new system leverages 50 years of Polk loudspeaker engineering to deliver superb audio quality from a sleek 14.5” wide design. Equipped with an advanced 5-speaker array and down-firing subwoofer, this compact, powerful sound bar system provides deep bass, detailed highs, and an expansive 3D soundstage rivaling much larger sound bars.
“With MagniFi Mini AX we set out to create the world’s best sounding, ultra-compact Dolby Atmos sound bar” said Frank Sterns, President of Polk Audio. “By integrating the immersive surround capabilities of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X and then optimizing it with Polk’s patented SDA technology, we’ve created a product that’s not only as enveloping as a sound bar three times its size, but with a level of sound stage accuracy that’s unmatched in its class.”
Dolby Atmos, Done Better
The MagniFi Mini AX utilizes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround sound to create a cinematic listening experience for any room. Polk engineers further enhanced the surround experience by integrating their patented fourth generation SDA technology to make an even wider, more accurate sound stage than provided by Dolby Atmos or DTS:X alone. In addition, they’ve included 3D Audio Mode which upmixes the audio to 360-degree virtual surround sound including virtual height channels.
All The Key Features
Polk’s patented VoiceAdjust™ speech-clarifying technology allows users to increase the level of voices without affecting the rest of the soundtrack, never again missing a single word. The powerful wireless subwoofer that comes as part of the MagniFi system connects to the sound bar automatically and can be placed anywhere up to 30-feet away. The subwoofer provides the deep, effortless bass that Polk is known for and can be tailored for your preferences using the BassAdjust feature.
Movie and Music Modes tailors the sound bar’s performance to your content, and Night Mode simultaneously increases the dialogue and decreases bass for late-night watching, without disturbing sleeping family or neighbors. For an even more immersive surround sound experience, users can add Polk SR2 wireless speakers (available separately for $199) to enjoy an additional multidimensional Dolby Atmos or DTS:X 5.1 playback.
Easy Setup with Any TV
The MagniFi Mini AX features a one-cable set-up that is compatible with any TV via HDMI eARC/ARC (HDMI cable included), optical, or AUX-in. The sound bar system includes a remote as well as working with most TV remotes out of the box. The sound bar is also Roku TV Ready™ certified to work seamlessly with any Roku TV™.
Pricing and Availability
The Polk Audio MagniFi Mini AX sound bar system will be available for $499 beginning March 15, 2022, at PolkAudio.com and through authorized Polk retailers, in the U.S. and other regions.
