Overview

Our take on the Mirage Nanosat® 5.1 Compact Home Theater Speaker System

Mirage's Omnipolar design gives you plenty of placement flexibility. The small satellites fit nicely on shelves or tables, or you can mount them on the wall using the included hardware. Because of the way they radiate sound, they're more forgiving than direct-firing speakers. You can even mount the satellites up high, near the ceiling, for an unobtrusive look. And place the compact subwoofer behind the couch or under an end table to complete the system's "hideaway" installation.

Transform your movie experience

Enjoy wraparound home theater sound with the Mirage Nanosat 5.1 speaker system. Five small satellites and a subwoofer deliver full-bodied surround sound that brings your favorite movies, TV shows, music, and video games to life. You'll hear realistic imaging and lifelike ambient effects, from the rumble of an engine to the splash of individual raindrops in a thunderstorm. And the system's compact design and sleek black finish make it a great-looking addition to just about any room.


Innovative design for expansive, lifelike sound

The key to the Nanosat 5.1 system's open, true-to-life sound is Mirage's exclusive Omnipolar® technology. Each speaker disperses sound evenly in a 360° pattern, thanks to the saucer-shaped Omniguide mounted above its drivers. The result: a deeper, wider, taller soundstage that transforms your entire listening space into a "sweet spot." You won't have to anchor yourself to one prime seat — you'll experience warm, natural audio throughout the room. The subwoofer's patented driver design allows quick, precise movement of the woofer cone for clean, distortion-free bass.

Satellite Speakers

Drivers: Each satellite houses a 2-3/4" titanium deposit polypropylene cone midrange with butyl rubber surround and a 3/4" pure titanium hybrid (PTH) dome tweeter mounted on the Omniguide.

Omnipolar Technology: By utilizing the natural room reflections this speaker design radiates sound in a 360° pattern, expanding the sweet spot to encompass virtually the entire room.

Omniguide: The patented Omniguide module utilizes two deflectors, one each for the tweeter and midrange. The module disperses sound the way the ear and brain are accustomed to receiving it; thirty percent is direct sound, the other seventy percent is reflected off walls, ceilings, floors and other surfaces for a completely immersive, 360º experience.

Enclosure: The satellites have an acoustic suspension, extruded aluminum enclosure.

Speaker Terminals: Each satellite features high-quality binding 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.

Mounting: The NanoSat speaker comes with a key-hole slot wall mount bracket installed. The bracket is mounted with one screw and can position the speaker right side up or upside down. Once mounted the speaker can swivel left or right (approximately +/-40°). The bracket mounts the speaker approximately 1/4" from the wall. The 1/4" 20 threaded insert on the bottom can also be used with other brackets. If you mount the satellite speaker more than six feet off the floor, Mirage recommends turning it upside down. If you place the satellite speaker on a table or shelf, put it as close to the front edge as possible.

Video Shielded: The satellites are magnetically shielded for safe placement near your TV or computer monitor without causing picture interference.

Powered Subwoofer

Design: The down-firing 8" sub features Mirage's patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround technology. The Elliptical Surround encompasses the cone, allowing it to move identically in both directions, reducing distortion. It also allows for a larger cone surface and greater peak to peak movement, resulting in better efficiency and bass extension. The port is front facing.

Connections: The Nano S8 has spring clip speaker level inputs and stereo RCA line-level inputs. Use the left RCA input when connecting to a single LFE output. If available, Mirage recommends using the line input with the preamp's crossover set as close to 120 Hz as possible.

Phase: The phase is reversible; 0 or 180 degrees.

Crossover: The crossover is continuously adjustable from 40 Hz to 150 Hz.

Volume: The subwoofer has a separate volume level, allowing you to adjust the subwoofer volume relative to the rest of the system.

Power: The power switch has three positions; on, off, and auto. In the auto position the sub turns on when it senses an audio signal and turns off after several minutes with no signal.
