WOW

Scott, Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent sound system. Compact yet produces awesome sound. Easy to hook to TV, disk player or blue tooth. Comes with all needed cables for TV and disk player. No wires between bar and subwoofer. Separate volume control for bar and subwoofer. This Polk system replaced our surround sound and is very much advanced in quality, volume and features and no speaker wires to mess with. Just unplug and move anywhere. I'm a musician so sound is important.

Speech clarity sucks, no way to adjust treble, no HDMI connection

  • Summary: Pros: both the soundbar and sub are well built and look fairly nice even though a bit plain looking. The warranty for the sub is 1 year, and for the bar it is actually 2 or 3 years. Thats all i can say for the pros. Cons: the sound quality! One of the main purposes of a sound bar is to replace the crappy speakers that come with the tv. This one BARELY sounded better than the stock tv speakers. There is no way to adjust treble on this set, and dialogue clarity sucks.

Great buy for the price

  • Summary: I've had a Bose Surround Sound system for 15 years and recently bought a new home, so I decided to try the soundbar instead of using the old technology. Wow! Very rich sound, minimal setup. Small footprint compared to Bose system. I don't miss my Bose at all!! Great buy for the price.

I got 'Polk'd'!

Trevor Campbell, Amazon
27 August 2014
  • Summary: These speakers are really frustrating for a few reasons. If you pause what your watching for an extended period, the speakers go into standby. So when you 'unpause' what you're watching, it's quiet for about 8 seconds until the speakers 'wake up'. Also the sub woofer can unsync itself and sounds staticky. If you manually flip it off and back on it goes away, but still weird.

Incredible sound (4.50 stars)

  • Summary: The sound quality in the store was better than any of the "other" sound bars. At $300, this unit is a bargain. In my bedroom, it is awesome. I have a high quality surround sound in my family room and this little sound bar gives that unit a run for its money. I have not figured out all of the features yet, but suffice to say, I rate this unit 4.5 stars. Only reason for 1/2 star off is the need for a separate controller.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
