Powerful, compact soundbar/subwoofer system!

By KJ Souza

from Fairhaven, MA

Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

Have been looking for an ideal sound option for my living room flatscreen TV, but didn't want to have to take up a lot of space and run wires everywhere. Well, the Polk MagniFi system certainly fits the bill! The sleek, low-profile soundbar fits perfectly at the base of my flatscreen and provides a realistic stereo- and center-channel sound field while the wireless subwoofer can be tucked out of sight and still provide a punchy, deep bass presence. I love that you can adjust the center, stereo and sub channels independently to suit your taste and the added Bluetooth option allows you to play streaming music from your cellphone or tablet. This system exceeded my expectations and really delivers a serious bang for your buck!

Fantastic Option.

By MikeL

from Owings Mills, MD, United States

Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

I paired up my Magnifi to my TV using the optical input. The Sub is wireless and come synchronized. I do not use the bluetooth feature as I have a Bose SoundLink so this is strictly to make my Vizio not sounds like a tin can. The sound bar fills the room well and with the voice enhancement, I can watch Doctor Who or even Football and hear the dialog. An added bonus is that syncing the sound bar to my TV remote was beyond easy! There are 2 faults to this system. The first one is that on occasion (maybe once every 90 days) the sound bar will mute itself. I have found that counting to 3 and then turning up the volume brings it back. The second is that the volume adjustment is done by LED lights on the bar. There can be a huge variety in the volume which makes it hard to get the volume level right. Neither of these issues would deter my from getting another Polk product. If you are going to spend the money to enhance your TV sound, you have to go all the way and get the Polk.

    Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

    My husband set this up, so I can't say whether it easy or difficult, but it is easy to use. I especially like that the remote allows you to easily adjust the bass (I highly recommend getting this model because of the subwoofer), and voice levels, along with volume. We saw other brands that cost so much more, but their quality was no better than this one.

    Does the job for us older folk

    By AR shorty

    from NW Arkansas

    Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

    This is a great sound bar to pair with a 4K TV. The Polk Magnify 2.1 system reproduces TV/Movie dialog that can actually be understood. I've tried other 2.1 sound bar systems and they all have a rumbling bass that overpowers dialog. Us older folk have problems with some frequencies and this is the only 2.1 sound bar I've found that actually works for me. (There are some other decent products out there IF you can handle overpowering bass. I can't.) The most valuabe features of the Magnify 2.1 are the "center channel" and sub-woofer volume controls. Using both in conjunction with you TV's sound profiles allow you to find that "sweet spot" tha turns noise into dialog. Perhaps the neatest feature of this unit (other than turning gibberish into understandable dialog) is the ability to program the soundbar so it will respond to other remotes; original equipment, cable box remotes, etc. What keeps this from being a five star rating are: 1. Streaming audio from my iPhone is pretty good but has a tendency to sound a bit hollow and tinny. I was hoping for more and it could still happen as I mess with settings 2. Several reviewers mentioned how this product is slugish when switching from blue tooth mode back to optical stereo input mode. My experience, also. A bit annoying but certainly not a deal killer. These are merely observations: 1. The subwoofer was a bit much at first but after a day two you don't even notice it's there. 2. The sound bar remote has a noticeably limited range but is adequate when operating in front of a 4K TV. (Less than 10 feet) 3. Fine tuning Magnify to work in conjunction with your TV will take some trial and error but is well worth the effort. 4. I keep the sound bar and subwoofer on 24/7 to reduce the number of steps my wife has to take in order to enjoy her shows from Netflix. 5. Most sound bars are designed for younger people who can still hear well. Conclusion - this is THE 2.1 sound bar system for older folks with hearing problems.

    Polk SoundBar - MagniFi

    By Dougie

    from Rockwall, TX, United States

    Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

    Bought a Magnifi Soundbar on Sunday, hooked it up and it worked great. Monday as I was reading the User Manual I noticed it worked with any bluetooth device so I connected my iPhone. Worked Great. Went back to the TV and not so great. The sound coming from the Sub-woofer was hugely distorted and it sounded bad. Tried to re-sync several times to no avail. I connected the Sub-woofer directly and it worked fine. tried to re-sync same problem. Finally after several tries the sub woofer appears to be working normally. Time will tell. Other than this issue I like the sound and the system.

    Great Sound Bar

    By psychbike

    from North Aurora, IL, United States

    Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

    I purchased this soundbar with my new TV and it is excellent. The controls are simple, but useful. I purchased my first Polk Speakers in 1980, and I am still using them (and they still sound great).

    great sound poor connection

    By mdkyle

    from North Carolina, United States

    Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

    bought this item 3 weeks ago, the sound is amazing and clear. However when i play video games i use a headset, and it turns itself off after "x" amount of time well when i turn it back on from power save mode the speaker itself doesn't work but sound goes through to the subwoofer, and i cant find a surefire way to fix it. it only works again when it wants too.

    Simple set up, Excellent Use!

    By tibour

    from Ocala, FL, United States

    Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

    I had this thing set up in about 15 minutes flat. The hardest part was opening the box and checking the components. My TV is on a stand so I didn't have to worry about the wall mounts. I wasted a few minutes looking for standard white paper directions until I realized the little beige polk book was it. Quick look at the pairing directions, hook up the power cords and the optical cable. It took longer to figure out my TV's settings than anything else. Over all it had to be the simplest install that I have ever done. The sound is truly amazing! I am deaf in one ear and half deaf in the other. I have a hard time hearing voices over background noises. The voice adjust feature on this product greatly reduces this problem. I am looking forward to enjoying TV and movies again!

    Easy to set up and great sound in seconds!!!

    By dching514

    from Columbus, OH

    Comments about Polk Audio Wireless Home Theater Soundbar System:

    I replaced a full surround sound system with this soundbar when we moved to a new home and this has filled our room perfectly! The voice control is great for when our kids are in bed. We just sat down to start watching the NBA playoffs and it felt like we were in the arenas! It was really easy to set up and everything synced up instantly.
