B&W MT-50 Mini Theatre 5.1 Speaker Package

B&W have enjoyed huge success over the last few years with their MT-25 mini theatre speaker system so the arrival of the new MT-50 has been eagerly anticipated and with good reason - the new MT-50 sounds better than ever..

All Round Performance

The MT-50 Mini Theatre isn’t just an upgrade to the previous series – it’s a completely new system. Every technological component has been designed and built in-house, from the ground up. Inside each Mini Theatre speaker you’ll find new technologies never before seen in previous models – some adapted from pioneering speakers such as the Nautilus, and others custom-made especially for this range.

The MT-50 twins five M-1 speakers with the diminutive but very punchy ASW608 subwoofer to create immersive surround sound that will keep you gripped, right up until the final frame.

Compact Power

Don’t let appearances deceive you. the ASW608 may look neat and unassuming, but it packs an acoustic punch that’s more than a match for some of its bulkier, more ungainly rivals, thanks in part to its 200W ICEpower amplifier. Perfect for a big sound in smaller spaces. Now available in either Matte Black or a Matte White, to match the M-1 speakers.

Sum of its parts

From the inside out, the M-1 was conceived as a unified system. Its design has evolved in a totally integrated way, from the custom-made crossover to the two-piece clamshell cabinet. Now, following a complete technological overhaul, including all-new drive units designed in-house, it sounds better than ever. Dispersion has increased. Imaging is pin-point accurate. Performance is now full range.

Limitless Versatility

The M-1’s versatility allows it to adapt perfectly to any home environment, no matter how awkward the space. You can put an M-1 on a bookshelf. Or mount it on a wall. Or position it on its own floor-length stand. It can swivel to a horizontal position, for when you want to use one as a centre-channel speaker. You can even take your pick of a choice of Matte Black or Matte White finishes.

Totally Immersive Experience

Actors, dialogue, storyline – it’s when all the parts of a film merge effortlessly together that you know you’re in for a great cinematic experience. The same goes for our Mini Theatre series. Satellites and subwoofers integrate so seamlessly that each individual speaker seems to vanish, leaving you with the most immersive sound possible

Finished To Perfection

The M-1 was always a stylish speaker, but thanks to some subtle design tweaks it’s now looking sleeker and more elegant than ever. The cabinet is now more curvaceous, made of just two perfectly interlocking sections that form one harmonious whole. This integrated structure isn’t just about visual aesthetics – the lack of seams and joins is key to the M-1’s rock-solid sound.

Limitless Versatility

The M-1’s versatility allows it to adapt perfectly to any home environment, no matter how awkward the space. You can put an M-1 on a bookshelf. Or mount it on a wall. Or position it on its own floor-length stand. It can swivel to a horizontal position, for when you want to use one as a centre-channel speaker. You can even take your pick of a choice of Matte Black or Matte White finishes.

Discreet Wiring

No-one likes messy cables cluttering up their domestic space. So in the same way as a power cable enters a well-designed table lamp at its base and passes up through the stand, the M-1’s signal cable disappears into the back of the table plinth stand. From here, the signal reaches the speaker via a specially-designed, pre-wired arm support.

Nautilus Tweeter

The M-1’s tweeter is a highly specialised piece of equipment custom-made by the team behind some of our best-known hi-fi speakers. The tweeter is tube-loaded – a design innovation we first introduced on our ground-breaking Nautilus speaker. The tube works by soaking up unwanted resonance from the back of the tweeter, so the sound you hear from the front is as detailed and precise as possible

Anti-Resonance Plug

The redesigned bass/mid-range driver features our Anti-Resonance Plug – an acoustic innovation first seen on our high-end PM1 loudspeaker. Constructed from polymer foam, the mushroom-shaped device soaks up resonance like a sponge while also reducing cone break-up, creating unparalled clarity and detail in the midrange.
