Detailed Description - Small Size, Big Impact

Whether you’re listening to mellow music or watching an action-packed flick, our compact Nanosat Prestige 5 home theater system, with its modern materials and unique miniature technology, brings your entertainment full circle.

Prestige

Each satellite employs a powerful 2.75-inch titanium deposit polypropylene cone woofer for amazing bass performance and a 0.75-inch pure titanium hybrid tweeter for warm, rich high frequencies. The center channel utilizes a 3-inch polypropylene woofer and a 0.75-inch dome tweeter for balanced, full-bodied sound playback.

But what really separates this system from the rest is a patented Omniguide module, an ingenious design that involves two deflectors, employed on all four satellites as well as the center channel. While one deflector rests on top of each speaker’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.

For increased low-frequency bass response, we recommend pairing the Prestige 5 up with an optional Prestige S10 or S8 subwoofer, so you can hear and feel dynamic music and movie content.

The Science Behind the Mirage Sound: Exclusive Mirage Technologies

Omnipolar® Sound

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.

Omniguide Technology

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® CC…

“Mirage’s Nanosat Prestige home theater system has a lot going for it. Topping my list are its wonderfully sweet treble, and excellent surround envelopment—traits that you just don’t expect from a system with such tiny speakers. And all this from a system that costs only $1400.” -- AV Guide, Vince Hanada (December, 2008)

I bought these speakers for my home theater system which consists of Yamaha RX-V663BL 665 Watt 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver and Velodyne DEQ-10R 10-Inch Powered Subwoofer (Black) I didn't have the floor space for big speakers because of the many doors and other furniture in the room but was concerned that these speakers wouldn't be powerful enough to fill our family room/kitchen combination. It's like a double room with the family room on one end and the kitchen on the other, covering about 42 x 24 feet. There are lots of windows and doors one one side which makes the room an acoustical nightmare. We have the rear speakers placed about halfway back, the length of the room.

But I needn't have worried because these speakers do a fantastic job despite their small size. I bought Mirage MS-STB-1 Nanosat speaker stands Black for the front speakers and mounted the rear ones on the wall with the mounting brackets that are included. The first night we hooked the whole system I realized that I bought the wrong Y connector to connect this subwoofer to my receiver so we had to watch a movie without it. The sound with just these speakers was still very good even without a subwoofer. Compared to the Bose satellite speakers that I had before, these were much better. I realized that the reason I couldn't hear what people were saying in the movies wasn't because we had the volume too low or just the acoustics, but because the sound wasn't as crisp and clear as it was with these speakers.

It's scary buying speakers that you never had an opportunity to audition. It borders on lunacy. Trust me though, you will be safe with these. My new place has a much smaller living room and because of doorways, hallways, and HVAC registers, there was just no way to utilize my existing Cerwin Vega huge floor standing speakers. And even in the places I've lived that actually had enough space for them, they still left me feeling the sound quality could be "better". They served me well for about 12 years, and everybody else loved them, but I've always wanted more. So I started my research. In Oklahoma City the opportunities to audition speakers is slim, but I did finally find a Best Buy with a listening room. I tried the Klipsh, Polk, and a few others, and just couldn't justify spending the money on them. It finally came down to the Orb Audio speakers and these. Since the Orbs are front firing, I was concerned about placement and achieving the so called sweet spot. Not even remotely a concern with the Mirage. Both speaker sets get raves all over the internet. The only real negatives I found on the Mirage have been from folks expecting them to do other than what they are very clearly designed to do. They didn't meet their expectations, but those expectations were unreasonable to begin with. You HAVE to use a subwoofer with these speakers. They are simply too small to provide huge bass response. These also require a " break in period" of 100 hours or so. As you listen, over time, they get louder without increasing the volume on the amp. They also start out a bit "bright" sounding. They either get "warmer" over time, or the listener gets use to the brightness, but I found that brightness to be exactly what I was missing in the Cerwin Vegas.Read more ›

I bought this speaker set from Amazon Marketplace in May 2009 and connected it to my Denon receiver. It certainly gave a better performance as compared to my old sony (an inexpensive set) speakers. However, in November the center channel speaker started giving muffled sound. I could hardly hear the dialogue from Blue Ray movies. I contacted the sellers and they referred me to the manufactureres. My experience with them was not very pleasant. The manufacturers ultimately referred me to a third party service center who were quite unprofessional. The bottomline is that after paying more that $700 on a set of speakers, we should get quality performance. The manufacturers should improve the quality of their products as well as service.

The speakers sounded flat and shallow out of the box, but once calibrated on my receiver, they really do sound quite good. My Reference Series 12" Klipsch subwoofer was a little much for them and I had to lower the volume on it. Now that the levels are equal, the sound blends beautifully.

Music is a little centered with the omnipolar tweeter design, but I expected that. These speakers are used 95% of the time for movies so this wasn't a concern for me. Movies do sound great, the sound comes from where it is supposed to and you really do feel engulfed in the movie.

If you are looking for small satellites that have the WAF (wife approval factor), then these are for you. And remember...friends don't let friends buy Bose. Nothing from Bose can even come close to these at any price point.
