Everything is still great and honestly even better. After adding a PS4 to the mix yesterday, I decided to quit procrastinating and re-configure the cables to test HDMI ARC (previously used optical input). NOW, after nearly 8+ months, I have an on-screen volume indicator again instead of relying on the sound bar LEDs and the sound quality is even more amazing (Dolby D+/DTS used with TV, bitstream DTS w/PS4) If your TV supports HDMI ARC, take advantage of it with this sound bar. I’ve also since ditched the tiny, stroke inducing OEM remote for the sound bar plus 2 others and programmed everything through a Harmony Ultimate remote. All the thumbs up!
I bought this product with my own hard-earned salary and have gained no reward or free crap from a 3rd party for leaving this review...sorry it's kind of a novel :)
It has been 6 months since purchasing the MagniFi mini and I'll have to say I have gotten quite a bit of well welcomed, unexpected bang for my buck. I was skeptical at first thinking that one tiny bar and sub couldn't possibly give me a believable theater sound experience...WRONG!!! The coolest part about the sound is that even though the bar is positioned in front of me, underneath my TV, the sound "feels" submersive like it's coming from all around the room.
The main bar speaker is heavy as a brick, very well made. The down-firing sub is quite light, very well-made and fits just about anywhere. There is, however, quite the learning curve when it comes to figuring out your optimal audio settings. You'll be tweaking the your TV's audio out settings for a while before finding the sweet spot. Also, getting used to knowing the what the colored lights on the speaker front were telling me was different especially when being used to seeing a visual indicator on the TV. It took about a month to finally work the kinks out of the TV's audio out setting situation and find the optimal setting for at least 3 out of the 4 things I have connected to the speaker.
I honestly don't think I've been able to use this speaker to the potential I have no doubts it has like really crank it up to an ignorant level, but I can say that when I have turned it up (using just the optical input) like for a PlayStation game or streaming movies with my TV audio out setting to Dolby+/DTS, there's a TON of power behind that set-up. 99% of the time I stream content from TV apps (Pandora/Netflix/Amazon Prime Video/E! Now etc.) Sound is amazingly balanced and has rarely required any tweaks from the remote. Quiet movies like Moonlight was a bit of a nightmare, but I watched that the night I got the speaker and hadn't figured things out yet. I also replaced the puny factory wire with a high quality/premium optical cable and noticed a richer improvement in the sound quality. Bluetooth streaming quality is equally as amazing. I've tested streaming from my iPhone, a couple old Androids and my Mac. Each one worked equally as well and pairing was effortless. My U-verse cable box takes up the only ARC HDMI port on the TV so I have yet to test the sound quality from TV over ARC to the speaker. Pretty sure it's excellent though. Once I do get to test that I'll come back and update if anything significant comes out of it. My one gripe with inputs is, for example, channel changes or changing content while streaming. There's a sound delay that takes takes several seconds to resume unless you trigger it manually by mashing a volume button. It's slightly annoying and I keep wondering if this is remedied by using ARC HDMI...I'll test it eventually.
On the other side of the review token, audio when watching cable TV (AT&T U-verse) has always been and continues to be a butt pain. I'm not blaming the speaker system at all because I'm betting the U-verse cable box is the problem, it just needs to be upgraded...old tech + new tech=all kinds of weird sometimes. Some channels apparently only support certain audio formats over optical. The main issues are that some channels will have no sound until I change the TV audio out setting to plain Dolby+ (no DTS). Or, others will be so quiet I have to crank it to 11 to hear anything then get then need a change of pants once a commercial comes on because it'll blare so loud that the rest of the city will know what I'm watching. At this point, I know which channels are borked and avoid them. Meh. No biggie.
Last gripe is the remote. Whoever thought of this design should've called in sick that day. #1) It's not very responsive. You have to point it directly at the speaker or else nothing is going to happen. It's mainly the scalloped/flat buttons that have major responsive issues. Mute button is the wrong place so when you need to quickly cut the sound and it takes 3-4 presses before it actually works. Volume Up and Down are both scalloped out. In a perfect remote world, Volume Up should be raised so you can feel the difference in your hand without looking. If you aren't pressing in exactly the right spot, you're gonna do the opposite of what you intend. Very annoying. Then there's the speaker LED's. Gauging the number of clicks to change the volume level remains a mystery so I STILL have to look at the lights to know my remote press registered (which isn't always do-able depending on where I am in the room). It always 1 click to display the sound level LED's then 4-6 clicks to actually affect the volume level. I could count for clicks forever and it'd never end up being the same ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I've eliminated these issues entirely by just programming the speaker on my Harmony remote. Bam...perfection anywhere.
Since my purchase 6 months ago, the price has gone dropped to $199 so I kinda wish I had waited, but I needed an audio upgrade immediately back then. This product was very well worth the original $269 price tag, though. Don't hesitate on getting your hands on this little system! I always pre-search major purchases until it becomes ridiculous, but there's really no need if you're looking for awesome audio quality, high product quality and ease of use. You will NOT be disappointed especially at this new lower price, it's pretty much an un-pass-up-able* steal! (*wonder how many scrabble points that word would gimme :P)
Update 9/27/2017 - I experienced a problem where the subwoofer stopped working properly. It had to be re-synced every time the soundbar was turned off and then back on. A single call to Polk customer service resulted in them sending a new system immediately. The new system is working as it should. So, not only does the MagniFi Mini get 5 stars, so does Polk customer service.
I knocked out two stars because, as some other reviewers said, the soundbar is always hot to the touch. I would understand if it was hot during operation, but the system is ALWAYS hot even it has been unused for a long time, even days. Then, it means its always on.
I am concerned about long-term durability of the electronics. Will be contacting Polk about it and if there is no fix, its going back.
This thing sounds so good that I put back the stars. I was contacted by Polk and they reassured me that the warming is normal. I am keeping it :)

However the sub woofer stopped working after the third day. Despite multiple tries and calls with Polk Audio, the issue was not rectified. Since the Polk Support Operates from Europe and US, I decided it is better to return the product.
Update : the product is available in local market for at least 2K less.
Bought it after a long period of reviews. Did not want a bigger system as the intent was not to blast music. Was looking for clarity and options to use it with a variety of music sources and TV, DVD's. Was inclined to go for the Yamaha YAS2500, But the cost was 3-4 times more. The Bose wave music system was a close 3rd choice.
Great sound when listening to HD music using WiFi connect and casting from the phone
Good connection options for various inputs
Great sub woofer, sound bar marriage. The booms are not disturbing for neighbours!
Nice 'night mode' option to cut all the lower frequencies. Nice for TV programs after others fall asleep
Wanted more clarity from the speakers in Bluetooth mode and when using the Aux cable inputs
- My old Sony Bravia LCD TV doesn't output optical for TV playback, neither did it have HDMI (ARC)
What to say about this little gem. It is small in comparison to every other soundbar in the market today, doesn't even look like one but blows every other soundbar out the window with its performance. Crisp highs and mids with rumbling room filling bass. It works as a superb music player too which others can't. BT is fantastic, Chromecast connection is dodgier to setup. The LED indicators are well defined to display the type of connection with which is getting the feed along with the indication of sound level, base level and voice level (you'll know it within a few minutes of playing with the remote). The real charm gets out when it is getting the Dolby input. I am enjoying this product. Polk has build a superb product, bit pricier for Indian market but surpasses in sound quality. You get the hdmi cable and power adapters for different plugs too.
Built: 4/5 (Remote kept smelling as if it was burnt)
I feel lucky that I couldn't get the JBL soundbar during the Prime day sale because of Amazon's terrible delivery process where the instructions don't reach the delivery team and multiple calls to give instructions don't reach the delivery team!! Their bogus delivery process continued for consecutive 3rd time. They failed to ship the product on the final delivery date and upon a few calls later the schedule is extended by a week. Luckily product arrives in this period and I see that the delivery guy nearly throws the product box out of the van (no need to write fragile into it, stupids will break it) and this won't come in additional Amazon packaging (as described in the page). Polk did a good job with inside packaging, the drops didn't break anything *sigh*. It feels like Amazon is soon going to loose the market as I am skeptic to order anything from them now. Good luck ordering such pricey products with inconsistent delivery, even when you are Prime member the probability of the product reaching you on time in a city like Pune looks thin.
