Here’s a brand we’ve not heard anything from for a little while. And because they’re releasing a brand new Polk Signa S3 soundbar, which is part of their Signa Series, we thought we’d do a little piece on it. Oh, and the fact that it actually looks pretty tasty too.
The Polk Audio Signa S3 soundbar comes in at only 5.5cm tall and 90cm wide, but it packs a punch. Inside are four drivers, and it also comes with a wireless subwoofer, so there’s no pesky cables to deal with.
The soundbar is also capable of Dolby Digital 5.1 audio and only requires one HDMI ARC connection, assuming your television can do ARC Return. Most modern televisions will now. What is interesting is that there is Chromecast for Audio which means you can stream audio from a variety of sources. This can include Google Play Music, Amazon Music HD, Spotify, Tidal, Roon, Qobuz, and more. Having Chromecast also means it’s compatible with the Google Assistant.
It also has Voice Adjust technology, which is patented by Polk Audio, and this means you can adjust the vocal lines of movies, TV shows and sports events, so you don’t miss any dialogue. Pretty cool.
“The Signa Series sound bars continue to be a best seller because of the line’s impressive Polk Audio sound quality first and foremost, but also because they’re incredibly simple to use and won’t break the bank,” said Michael McCole, senior product marketing manager for sound bars at Polk Audio. “If you’re in the market for a straightforward, but dramatic boost to your home theater system, the Signa S3 covers all the bases. It sounds huge, works with virtually any TV and TV brand, decodes Dolby Digital for great virtual surround sound and has Chromecast to easily stream your favorite music into your living room.”
And plus, for those of you who hate having multiple TV remotes laying around the lounge, the Polk Audio Signa S3 soundbar is compatible with Samsung, LG, Toshiba, Panasonic and Sony remote controls.
The Polk Audio Signa S3 will be launched in the UK on June 4th 2020 and will retail for around £279.99.
