From the Manufacturer

Mirage MX 5.1 -- Advanced Technology Delivers Incredible Sound

The MX 5.1 home theater system delivers big, immersive audio entertainment from Mirage's smallest set of speakers yet. Whether you want to rock the house, relax to smooth tunes or host a movie screening, the MX serves up some serious wow factor; providing immersive sound that won’t drown out your decor or intrude upon your everyday lifestyle. Consisting of five palm-size speakers and a miniature subwoofer cube finished in high-gloss black, the MX is a sophisticated surround sound system that perfectly demonstrates what’s possible using all of today’s incredible technologies. With exclusive Omnipolar technology and extremely high-performance components, it's sure to impress both casual and critical listeners alike.




The MX 5.1 is tiny and unobtrusive,
but provides huge, room-filling sound
View Larger

The Tiny System with Huge, Precise Response

Inside each durable polycarbon MX speaker enclosure, you’ll find a .63-inch pure titanium hybrid tweeter for precise, rich high frequencies and a 2.5-inch aluminum woofer for low distortion midrange and bass performance. Each two-way MX speaker has a maximum power handling of 100 watts, allowing it to work well with a wide variety of amplifiers. The MX speaker is finished in stylish high-gloss black with an elegant cloth grill which attaches and removes magnetically. The integrated dual key-way mount provides for wall or stand mounting (stands optional).


Unique, patented Omniguide design
However, the fact that Mirage was able to apply its unique Omnipolar technology to a product this size is the most impressive feature of all, and is what makes these small audio speakers sound huge and immersive. At the core of Omnipolar technology is the patented Omniguide module, which has two deflectors. While one deflector rests on top of the speaker’s tweeter, the tweeter itself is housed in a deflector, suspended over the woofer. These combined elements distribute sound directly towards the listener, simultaneously reflecting it off walls, ceilings and other surfaces. This results in a 360-degree soundstage that evenly permeates the listening environment.

The MX system’s MM-6 subwoofer employs an 800-watt amplifier, dual 6.5-inch black anodized aluminum passive radiators and a 6.5-inch black anodized aluminum cone woofer with an inverted Ribbed Elliptical Surround; all engineered to deliver tight, powerful bass response with low distortion. The subwoofer also includes a proprietary protection circuit, letting you achieve clear bass at all volume levels. A low pass filter with bypass mode allows the subwoofer to blend perfectly with the other MX speakers, using the built-in crossover or a home theater receiver. All of this makes the MM-6 the perfect mate for the MX speakers and a perfectly integrated 5.1 home theater speaker system.

The Science Behind the Mirage Sound: Exclusive Mirage Technologies


Omnipolar Sound
Mirage's Omnipolar approach to speaker design brings unprecedented performance to a variety of product sizes and room positions. This 360-degree sound philosophy works with your room, rather than against it, to create the proper proportion of direct and reflected sound. This design embraces and optimizes reflections, offer excellent imaging, width and depth. These speakers perform optimally regardless of where they are placed in a room. In other words, they take full advantage of the fact they cannot be separated from your room. You get a completely immersive experience that permeates evenly throughout your entire listening environment.

Omniguide Technology
The patented Omniguide module is an ingenious design that involves two deflectors. While one small deflector rests on top of the speaker’s tweeter, the tweeter itself is housed in a larger deflector, suspended over the midrange or woofer, depending on the design. The module disperses sound the way the ear and brain are accustomed to receiving it. Thirty percent of what these speakers deliver is direct sound. The other seventy percent is sound reflected off walls, ceilings, floors and other surfaces for a completely immersive, 360-degree experience. So, no matter where you sit, the enveloping sound follows.


Ribbed Elliptical Surround Technology
minimizes distortion and maximizes excursion
Ribbed Elliptical Surround Technology
Patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology increases excursion, eliminates distortion and raises efficiency on Mirage woofers and subwoofers. The Elliptical Surround encompasses the cone, allowing it to move identically in both directions, resulting in near-zero distortion. And while conventional designs are often plagued with surround dimpling, which causes them to radiate in and out of phase and distort at all listening levels, Mirage designs aren’t influenced by dimpling at all. The proprietary Ribbed Elliptical Surrounds allow for a larger cone surface, resulting in greater efficiency. This design also lets the cone achieve greater peak-to-peak movement, allowing it to travel more than double the distance of the competition. These attributes enable Mirage woofers and subwoofers to move incredible amounts of air, ultimately allowing them to play lower frequencies with greater bass extension and fidelity.

What’s in the Box?
Five MX ultra-compact Omnipolar home theater speakers, the perfectly matched MM-6 powered subwoofer with active and dual passive drivers, and an owner's manual with setup guide

They produce clear bright highs and overall sound quite good.

The sound was great, it's comparable if not much better than the 2,000 bucks speaker system.

I bought this with the Denon 3311 receiver and really like the sound and size of both. The speakers are small and discrete, yet provide a very open feel without much coloration. The speakers not only sound good, they are compact and well built. The "floating" tweeter makes the sound open and airy, under a grill cover that is held in place magnetically - very cool design. The bass module is small, but provides a large presence without being boomy - definitely a plus. The wife factor approves since she doesn't notice the speakers, except when I plan them loud.

The only nit I have is that the small speakers use spring clips, and does not have the option to use banana plugs or twist down terminals for the speaker wire. I guess it may be hard to add these features in such a small form factor.

All in all, great sound, great design, and great size for a home theatre. Nice job Mirage!

In this scenario great things do come in small packages. When I hooked this surround sound system to my Denon AVR-75 the sound was incredible. The little subwoofer had massive bass, and for those who doesn't like a lot of bass there is a volume control on the back of the subwoofer for your preference. The satellite speakers is phenomenal. Watching Transformer on the scorpion robot scene was awesome. It felt like I was sucked into the movie with its crisp clear sound. Overall, for the price this set of speakers are very well worth it.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By B. Blackwell on November 15, 2010
These speakers are AWESOME. Very loud and superb for surround sound and fills a large room with sound. The only negative is that the Subwoofer is pretty weak. It does not fill the room, and I have the volume all the way up and even turned volume up on my receiver. As I mentioned before, I did put this in a "large room", so I think that is the problem. In a smaller room this sub would be great. However, the spearkers can go in any room as they provide awesome sound and clarity. Therefore, I would rate the Speakers, sound and appearance a 5+, but subwoofer a 2 or 3, but again its probably due to my room size. If you have a small room or don't like a lot of bass this is fine, but for explosions and bass in a "large room" you need to add a bigger sub, then you will be ECSTATIC with these little speakers.

The technology to provide very high-quality, accurate sound has existed for some time. Many manufacturers produce a product that has nearly perfect specifications and sounds good. The problem for me has always been that I am well aware of listening to individual speakers. The sound comes from specific locations. Let's face it; with 99% of speakers, you're listening to boxes. For decades, speakers have been called transparent if they don't "color" the sound too much. One may be better than another, but it is still a box. Mirage speakers are truly transparent, meaning there is little sensation of listening to speakers and much more an illusion of hearing an actual performance. The MX speakers produce a huge sound stage, which extends far beyond where they are placed in the room.

When listening to stereo using all the speakers with the "extended stereo" mode of the home-theater receiver enabled, the distribution of sound depends upon how the recording was mixed. There is seldom just an old-fashioned stereo sound, though. When watching a Blu-ray with DTS-HD Master Audio, it is like really being there. Even DTS on a DVD that was well recorded can be amazing.

My living room is approximately 12'x20', and there is plenty of bass. It can be felt as well as heard.

The Mirage MX speakers are very nice looking, appear to be well made, and their small size makes them easy to place in the room. Placement is not critical; they can even be attached near the ceiling if they are mounted upside down.

These are real winners. My listening enjoyment has been greatly enhanced since they replaced my old boxes.

Pros: Speakers are very small, but still pack a strong punch
Crystal clear sound
Subwoofer can shake the roof, needed to purchase a separate sub-isolating base ($40) so as to not anger the neighbors

Cons: The cons I have experienced are minimal:
Cannot use banana plugs for the MX product line
Glossy finish collects dust

Summary: First of all, let me start by saying I am not an "audiophile." I like to have quality units in my home theater system and, after research, chose this product.

I have nothing but great things to say about this speaker system. The MX 5.1 has a retail price of $1,200 - Fortunately I was able to find it through other means at about $750. To be honest, it was worth every penny, and it would have been worth the $1,200 as well. I initially was thinking I would get a Bose sound system, but after reading numerous reviews which said the price did not yield the quality that it could, I decided to look elsewhere. I ultimately chose the Mirage MX 5.1.

The speakers are very small, about the size of a clenched fist. I recently added two, larger OS3-SAT speakers to the system in order to complete a 7.1 surround sound. If you're worried that the size of the units will affect their overall performance, don't be. In rooms from small, ranging to medium-large (not hugely large rooms, so I hear, but I can't speak from direct experience), the speakers create a crystal clear, room-filing sound. Every detail seems perfect, and there are times (in movies) when you receive the sensation of being "in" the movie. The omnipolar technology makes the sound fill the entire room, and you may find that you forget where the sound is coming from.
