Detailed Description - The Secret is in the Sauce
Whether you’re listening to mellow music or watching an action-packed flick, our compact Nanosat® speaker, with its modern materials and unique miniature technology, brings your entertainment full circle.
A powerful 2.75-inch titanium deposit polypropylene cone woofer lets you experience amazing bass performance, while a 0.75-inch pure titanium hybrid tweeter generates warm, rich high frequencies.
But what really separates this speaker from the rest is a patented Omniguide module, an ingenious design that involves two deflectors. While one deflector rests on top of the satellite’s tweeter, the tweeter itself is housed in a deflector, suspended over the woofer. These combined elements distribute sound directly towards the listener, as well as reflect it off walls, ceilings and other surfaces—resulting in a perfect 360º soundstage. More importantly, you’ll hear the same enveloping performances from anywhere in your room.
You’ll also discover the Nanosat is extremely versatile by offering endless placement possibilities. While included brackets make wall mounting a breeze, it also sits nicely on a shelf or table. But if neither option works for you, the speaker can be mounted to an optional MS-STB floor stand for further placement flexibility. All the while, high quality five-way binding posts ensure distortion-free connections.
In addition to fitting in anywhere, the Nanosat also works in a variety of audio configurations. It can be purchased individually for mix-and-match simplicity, as well as in an all-in-one home audio package called the Nanosat 5.1 system.
If you want to hear your music and movies the way they were recorded without having to put huge speakers in your living room, the tiny Nanosat® satellite has your name written all over it.
The Science Behind the Mirage Sound: Exclusive Mirage Technologies
Our Omnipolar approach to speaker design brings unprecedented performance to a variety of product sizes and room positions. This 360º sound philosophy works with your room, rather than against it, to create the proper proportion of direct and reflected sound. Being Omnipolar means our speakers embrace and optimize reflections; offer excellent imaging, width and depth; and 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.
Our patented Omniguide module (patent #6,996,243), also the heart of Omnipolar sound, 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 our speakers deliver is direct sound. The other seventy percent is sound reflected off walls, ceilings, floors and other surfaces for a completely immersive, 360º experience. So, no matter where you sit, the enveloping sound follows.

What the experts are saying about the Nanosat®…
"...in terms of appearance, I rank them at the top of the pile. But what makes the Nanosats really special are the results of Mirage's Omnipolar technology: a large, spacious sound that belies the speaker's size, and the superbly cohesive soundfield you get from five identical speakers." -- Home Theater & Sound, Doug Schneider (September, 2004)
