POLK AUDIO SOUNDBAR

ARCHIE, Amazon
20 September 2010
  • Summary: Easy to install, each cable have a color that match with the plug in the receiver. Sound good not great, but the relation price/sound is excellent. The solution is that your receiver be a 7.1 so you can install two more speakers in the back and the sound will be real soundround.

Good - About what you'd expect

  • Summary: I like this soundbar a lot, but it isn't quite as good as a true surround system. If you don't want extra wires, then this is the way to go. Perfect for living rooms w/ 50" plasmas.

Great big sound, average surround.

  • Summary: I got this because I was tired of hooking up a full surround system. I really appreciated that it came with a single bundled speaker cable that had all 10 wires, but wrapped together to minimize clutter.

Surprisingly Good

Travis Terwilligar "Travesty", Amazon

  • Summary: I have both the Polk SurroundBar (42") and the Yamaha YSP900. I will try to outline the pro's and con's for those looking for a comparison. Yamaha Pro's: The Yamaha is in use in our front room. It's a very large, cavernous room with no place for me to mount side or rear speakers.

Good Buy

Luis Luciani, Amazon
8 September 2008
  • Summary: Works very well in a small room (mine in 16x12) but does not produce real surround sound from the rear, as one should expect. I gladly overlook that in exchange for not having to lay speaker cables all over the place. I would buy it again.

  • Summary: The sound bar arrived when the shipper said it would and was packaged well. The sound is great and no need for wires laying all over the floor just too have rear speakers which this eliminates. Very pleased with this product and would recommend to anyone looking for this type of home theater set-up.

Partial surround sound

John Gorski "johnnyg", Amazon
27 November 2007
  • Summary: This speaker replaces the left, center, right, left surround and right surround speakers... not the typical 5.1 config which would be L|R|C and two rear surrounds. The polk setup sheet instructs you to wire the L & R surrounds to the LS and RS not the rear surrounds on your receiver (if you have a...

I was skeptical

Brad, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: Single-source surround was the best I could do for my room configuration, but I was hesitant to believe that it would provide a convincing effect. Though the rear channel simulation is fudged and somewhat unconvincing, I have definitely heard sounds directly to my left and right while using the...
