You Know That A Proper Audio Solution
is the key to getting the most from your new UK but sometimes the size and expense of a sound bar and subwoofer combo can make people maybe want to wait. I’m Erin for Best Buy Canada’s blog and now there’s a much more compact solution. The Poke Magnify Mini is a small home theater solution that can improve your UK audio and provide a speaker for listening to music. Too. I recently received a loaner of the Magnify Mini for a few weeks of testing and review in my home and this is what I found.
The Poke Magnify Mini Is An Ultra Compact
sound bar and wireless subwoofer combo with a remote control. It connects your UK using an included UK cable and provides greatly improved audio from your UK. Most flat-screen Tvs internal speakers are too thin and basic to. Quality audio that can match the UK video resolution So this is a compact solution well the included UK cable is nice The kit actually comes with three connection options. There’s that arc UK cable which you’ll only use if your UK has a special arc UK port in the back a UK by the way stands for audio return channel.
Otherwise You Can Use The Optical
audio cable or if your UK is older like mine is you can connect it with the Aux connector. Since my current setup already uses an aux cable I opted to keep that connection I connected the power and the Aux cable and then I plugged in the subwoofer. The manual says that the sound bar in the sub should just find each other and pair together all on their own and thankfully that did happen for me and I knew things were. working because there’s a green light on the back of the sub now when I went to place something from my Apple UK here. However, there was no sound so I fiddled around with the cables check the volume and the power but no dice I tried streaming some music from my phone just to see if the audio was actually working and the streaming worked just fine and we’ll get to more on streaming in just a second but I couldn’t seem to get any sound from the UK perplexed I called Polk’s toll-free customer service line for help it turns out there’s a button on top that’s circle with the little arrow on it that switches the source into the sound part.

Youll Need To Hit It A
couple of times to swap between connecting via bluetooth aux or the optical audio. No It doesn’t automatically find the output source for you A couple clicks sounds being overwhelming. The Magnify Mini is a hundred and fifty watt sound bar with two half-inch tweeters and four two and a quarter-inch mid–range drivers. It’s got a few other cool features too if you’re the type that doesn’t love fiddling with your settings you’ll love the preset audio settings available on the Magnify mini there’s settings right here on the remote for things like music, sports and movies Now I didn’t notice a huge difference between the movie and the music settings in particular and maybe they’d have a bit more bass to them. I’d say the sports preset though definitely cranks up the higher end and the voices and it is quite noticeable.
I Dont Know How Well This Will
reproduce, but take a listen to the different settings and serves as a reminder. Long ago, when the world was very different, it’s complicated and good men banded together to fight for what was right it motivates me to this day, but it brought me here to you. Pork promises crystal-clear dialogue with its voice suggests technology and this option basically lets you customize the voice levels to reproduce dialogue better thank you as always darling and I must say I found that when watching some programs this setting did definitely help the voices cut through better it somehow enhances them and just makes them more noticeable over background scene noise. A neat feature in this sound bar is something called night mode and this is a feature that’s been cropping up in home theater audio more and more often and that’s because it solves a common home theater issue that many of us have night mode essentially lets you lower the bass level. increasing the voices and keeping the volume level consistent, so you don’t need to wake up the whole family or strain to hear your program if you’re watching late at night.
The Magnify Mini Says It Has Surround Sound
capabilities. The work to mimic the effects of a full surround sound system with just the sound bar. The effect is created using pulse patented surround technology and 5. 1 Dolby Digital decoding pulk says it creates incredible room filling sound so does it I wouldn’t say it made me think I was in a full home theater with surround sound. It is nice and full and it gets loud, but in terms of mimicking a true 5.
1 System No Tell Anyone Lets Do Some More
digging. I should also point out the speaker sounds much better if you’re sitting directly in front of it if you’re off to the side. The audio sounds more directional and narrower, where right in front you do get a wider soundscape. The sound on this little bundle is insane. The sound bar is so compact, but it’s really powerful and it sounds rich and full just like a full-size sound bar.
The Bass Is Great Too Thanks
to that massive subwoofer dialog comes through clearly and sounds accurate too overall this sound bar subwoofer combo is great listening to music on the magnify Mini is really nice as well. It sounds great and it can easily rival any speaker like a Sonos UK or the Google home max. It sounds dynamite and streaming process is easy and stutter free. If you want to stream you can do it in two ways. One is to connect Google home and the other is to connect directly to your phone’s Bluetooth so you can stream content directly.
Your Phone To Connect Your Phone Head To
your phone’s Bluetooth settings menu and then just look for the pulk magnify mini mine popped up right away and I click to connect and I was able to stream music instantly. If you have trouble you can activate the Bluetooth manually. There’s a button on the back of the sound bar that’ll do it now. When it comes to Google Home. I did have some trouble the Google home connection should allow me to talk to the speaker using my Google Home Smart digital assistant.
I Tried To Connect It To The
magnify mini and my first attempt saw the connection process get almost all the way basically to the last step before giving me a failure message and then all of a sudden it vanished from the app I found I was unable to connect again. Google home seemed unable. to find the Magnify mini after a series of attempts. I tried engaging the Bluetooth button on the back again and nothing getting kind of frustrated. I gave up for the day came back to it again a couple days later and this time when I opened up the Google home.
There Was The Magnify Mini.
The Google home app saw it immediately and it helped me get all connected after that it was easy to say okay Google play music on Magnify Mini overall, there is plenty to love about the Polka Magnify Mini. The sound quality is outstanding whether it’s UK audio or music streaming. The compact size of the sound bar is nice and it’s deceptively powerful. If there are any cons.
Its That The Shape Of The Sound Bar
might be one reason it wouldn’t fit in your space, though it’s small it is kind of. Bulbous plus it can’t be wall-mounted so it needs a piece of furniture or a shelf to sit on. Meaning if you’ve got a wall-mounted UK as I do it might not be the right option. The size of the wireless subwoofer is a bit off-putting given that the sound bar itself is so small and easily placed. It’s much harder to find a place for the subwoofer that’s out of the way well the sound bar may be incognito hiding in plain sight.
The Sub Is Kind Of Like A Blimp
in your living room. By comparison. Overall, I did really like the magnify mini but a couple of things to consider you want it for just the right room. You either need a piece of furniture to put it on or a shelf.
If Youve Got A Wall-Mounted Uk And You
should sit directly in front of it. If your sitting off to one side or the other there’s a noticeable difference if you want to pick one of these up it retails for about 349 canadian dollars from Best Buy and if you want to read more about it.
