Our take on the Mirage Nanosat® Prestige 5 Home Theater Speaker System

by Chris Egner

Why choose a pre-matched speaker system?

Looking for speakers that'll deliver thrilling, edge-of-your-seat surround sound? Choosing a pre-matched speaker system is one way to ensure seamless home theater performance. These systems are made up of speakers that share the same tonal characteristics — that means the sound will stay consistent as it moves from speaker to speaker around your room. Most pre-matched systems come with a subwoofer — a must-have for high-impact bass.

Treat yourself to rich, enveloping home theater sound with this elegant five-piece system from Mirage. The four Nanosat Prestige satellite speakers may be pint-sized, but they still deliver the spacious, dynamic sound you expect from Mirage speakers. The matching Nano CC center channel speaker makes a powerful anchor for your front soundstage, giving you clear, crisp dialogue from your favorite movies. And all five pieces have a smooth, black high-gloss finish to complement your décor.

Innovative design for exceptionally open, lifelike sound
Mirage's exclusive Omnipolar® technology is the key to the big, true-to-life sound these speakers deliver. Thanks to a saucer-shaped Omniguide mounted above the drivers, Prestige speakers disperse sound evenly in a 360° pattern. The result: a deeper, wider, taller soundstage that transforms your entire listening space into a "sweet spot." Mirage's approach delivers a combination of direct and reflected sound that more accurately mimics what you hear when you listen to live audio. And you won't have to stay in one prime seat — you'll experience warm, natural sound throughout the room.

Complete your system with a powered subwoofer
Choose a Mirage powered subwoofer for solid bass. You can also pick up extra Nanosat Prestige satellites for a 6.1- or 7.1-channel setup, or add a second Nano CC for a strong back surround.

    Overview: The Mirage Nanosat Prestige 5 Speaker Package consists of four matching Nanosat Prestige satellites and a Nano center channel. The Nanosat Prestige 5 Speaker Package utilizes patented Omnipolar technology to disperse sound in a completely immersive 360-degree pattern to perfectly recreate the experience of a live event.

    Omnipolar Technology: This design radiates sound in a perfectly spherical dispersion pattern, expanding the sweet spot to encompass virtually the entire room.

    Omniguide Design: A conically shaped cylinder that is responsible for reflecting sound in a perfect 360 degree pattern. This unique design guarantees the same tonal balance and dispersion characteristics no matter how and where you mount the speakers.

    Four Satellite Speakers: The four matching Nanosat Prestige satellite speakers features a single 2.75" titanium deposit polypropylene cone with a butyl rubber surround and a single 0.75" pure titanium hybrid tweeter mounted on the Omniguide housed in an acoustic suspension enclosure. The satellite speakers' cabinets are made of a very solid inert medium density fiberboard (MDF) which creates a solid, flex-free cabinet which eliminates music altering distortion. The cabinet includes a high gloss black finish. The satellite speakers have high quality gold-plated binding posts to accept banana plugs, spades, or bare wire.

    Center Channel Speaker: The center speaker house a 3" polypropylene cone midrange with butyl rubber surround and a 2/3" pure titanium hybrid (PTH) dome tweeter mounted on the Omniguide. The center speaker has an acoustic suspension, extruded aluminum enclosure in a beautiful high gloss black finish. The center speaker features high-quality spring post speaker terminals for a secure and convenient connection. You will need to remove a plug that's inserted in the center of the binding post if you wish to use single banana plugs, the terminals are too far apart for dual banana plugs. Spade connectors, pin connectors, or bare wire up to 10 gauge can also be used.

    Video Shielded: The satellite speakers and center-channel speaker are magnetically shielded so you can even place on or next to your television without distortion.

    Mounting Options: The Mirage Nanosat Prestige 5 Speaker Package offers a variety of mounting options for the system's satellite speakers and center-channel speaker.

    • Satellite Speakers: The four matching Nanosat Prestige satellite speakers can be wall mounted using the supplied bolt-on keyhole slot brackets or mounted onto an optional floor stand (MS-STB-1) designed specifically for the NANOSAT speaker family. The supplied brackets allow the satellite speakers to be easily mounted to the wall and out of the way. The brackets can swivel 90 degrees left to right. The bracket is removable. The satellite speakers also come supplied with four self-adhesive rubber feet (each) so you can place the speakers securely and safely on a shelf or stand.
    • Center Speaker: The center speaker comes with a metal horizontal mounting bracket so you can mount the center channel to your wall. The bracket is mounted with two screws (not supplied) to the wall and can position the speaker right side up or upside down. The center speaker slips into place overtop the bracket once the bracket is mounted to the wall. The bracket mounts the speaker flush to the wall or two 1/4" spacers are provided to space the speaker approximately a 1/4" from the wall. The center speaker also comes supplied with a rubber platform base and self-adhesive rubber feet to place the center speaker securely and safely on your shelf or stand. If you place the speaker on a table or shelf, put it as close to the front edge as possible.

    Note: The speakers should be inverted with grille facing downwards when they are mounted above 6 feet. The speakers should be mounted normally with the grill facing up when they are mounted below 6 feet.

    Optional Subwoofer: For increased low-frequency response, the optional Mirage Prestige S10 and S8 subwoofers let your hear and feel dynamic music and movie content. While these models differ in driver size and power, they both feature patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology, a design that eliminates surround distortion, enabling the subwoofer to play lower with greater output and fidelity.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
    great product. excellent sound quality for music and movies. easy
    installation. a tad pricey, but when you hear them it was quite worth it. i
    believe they can stack up against most speakers in this price range. as
    usual, crutchfield was quite helpful in deciding which speakers to buy.
