Mirage  Nanosat 5.1 Surround Sound System Launches

To paraphrase the (in my opinion) rather good adverts: Carlsberg don't design home cinema speaker systems. But if they did, they'd probably have come up with the Mirage Nanosat (if not the B&W Zeppelin) I'm convinced it's the most awesome looking speaker systems in the world. Better still, Mirage reckons it's got the performance to match the appearance.

The Nanosat setup uses an Omnipolar speaker system to disperse sound, living up to the 'Nano' part of the name by being the world's smallest examples of such speakers. The idea is that the speakers can produce an enveloping, sound regardless the shape of, or exact placement within, the room in which they are placed. Good news for those of us that want more than a single chair sweet-spot.

As well as the Nanosat speakers, the system also packs a down-firing subwoofer, apparently engineered specifically to complement the satellites. Better still, the 5.1system can be had for around £599, which is hardly extortionate (assuming it sounds as good as we'd expect of a Klipsch offshoot). Additional satellites are £79 a pop, which might sound a bit pricey, but if you can afford a house with a cinema room big enough to need a 7.1-channel set-up, you can undoubtedly afford the speaker system to go in it.

Anyway, who cares about the price; didn't you notice the system looks really, really cool?

You don't need a particularly big room for a 7.1 set up. My home cinema is 5x3m and although I don't have the aesthetic constraints imposed on my setup like some people do, the 7.1 surroung setup is definitely worthwhile.

Having said all that, these speakers do look pretty good, if not like the B&W Nautilus.
