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 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

 

Small but magnificently mighty, Polk Audio's Magnifi Mini is one of best little soundbars you can buy.

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 Soundbar System Review

 

Despite its diminutive size, the MagniFi Mini speaks with a loud and clear voice at a bargain price.

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

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