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

Polk Audio Magnifi Mini review: Small package, BIG sound

 

A remarkably big sound from such a small soundbar but, sonically, it does have flaws

Wide soundstage ; Deep bass from a wireless subwoofer ; Google Cast compatibility

High price ; Mids and highs lack warmth

My favourite low-cost TV speaker remains the Cambridge Audio TV2 but if you prefer your speakers small, compact and your bass punchy, you won’t go far wrong with the Magnifi Mini.

Polk MagniFi Mini review

 

If the prospect of a traditional home-theater setup with a half-dozen speakers and a bulky receiver doesn't thrill you, you may want to a consider a sound bar . These small speakers are discreet, easy to set up, and sound much better than your TV's...

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 Compact Soundbar Review

 

Polk enter the growing UK soundbar market with their Magnifi Mini, a feature packed device with a small chassis but a big sound.

Wide open sound ; Great performance ; Decent bass ; Convenient size ; Useful features

Might struggle in larger rooms ; No on-screen display ; No remote app ; Pricey

The certainly lives up to its billing, delivering big audio from an ultra-compact soundbar. It's nicely designed, well made and small enough that it can fit just about anywhere. There are plenty of connections, some useful cables included in the box...

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 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
