Conclusion: The Polk Audio SurroundBar 6000 IHT is a perfect follow-up to the SurroundBar SDA Instant Home Theater (IHT) we reviewed last year. Polk has taken a very good product and made it even better by adding a remote, increasing the sound range and making it a sleeker and sexier product overall. This is a must-have for anyone wanting to add surround audio to your gaming or home theater rig with a tight space or tight budget.
Polk Audio SurroundBar 6000 Instant Home Theater Review
19 November 2010
Conclusion: The Polk Audio SurroundBar 6000 offers a lot of performance for only $499 and does so in a neat little package. It is a breeze to set-up and operate, and comes with an excellent remote. The three inputs make it quite practical, but it would be even better if had an additional optical input. Movie tracks and music sound great; just don't push the subwoofer too hard at loud levels.
Pros: Very good sound quality with both film and music, Easy to use and set-up, Intelligent design and excellent build quality, Tremendous value for the money, Ideal if you don't have a lot of space but want quality performance, Wireless subwoofer
Cons: Only one optical digital input, Subwoofer can sound boomy when pushed hard, Mild hardness on the top end at loud levels
