Polk Audio Introduces Signa S1 Universal TV Sound Bar and Subwoofer System
Entry-Level Sound Bar Delivers Room-Filling Home Theater Experience for Under $200

LAS VEGAS (Jan. 5, 2017)—Today at CES 2017, taking place from January 5-8, Polk Audio, a high-performance audio brand with a 40 plus-year legacy of sound engineering and design, announced its first home theater sound bar under $200, the Signa S1 ($179). Standing at only 2 inches tall, the low-profile Signa S1 sound bar delivers spacious sound and deep bass with an included slim wireless subwoofer for music and home theater applications. Designed with 5.1 Dolby Digital decoding, Polk’s patented Voice Adjust™ and Bluetooth technologies, the Signa S1 delivers a listening experience far beyond the capabilities of any TV’s built-in speakers.

The competitively priced sound bar can be set up in minutes with the included optical cable and boasts several features to improve the listening experience.  This includes improvements to TV shows, movies and music, including one-button preset EQ settings like “Movies,” “Music,” and “Night” modes all aimed at tailoring the listening experience quickly and easily.

“As the sound bar market continues to heat up, Polk Audio has placed an emphasis on providing a range of solutions that pair the latest technologies and form factors alongside Polk Audio’s heritage great sound.,” said Michael Greco, global brand director, Polk Audio. “In an effort to round-out Polk Audio’s already large family of sound bar solutions, the Signa S1 is aimed at reaching users who seek great sounding, high-value solutions at an achievable price point. Akin to other options from Polk Audio, the Signa S1 equips users with a wireless subwoofer and an array of technologies –  like Dolby Digital and Voice Adjust – that rival sound bars two and three times its price.”

As part of a larger family of sound bars designed by Polk Audio, the Signa S1 joins the recently announced ultra-compact MagniFi Mini ($299) sound bar. Despite its low-profile and 13.5” length, the MagniFi Mini delivers massive home theater surround sound via 5.1 Dolby Digital and Polk SDA technologies. Both sound bars feature Polk’s patented Voice Adjust technology improves vocal clarity for crystal clear dialogue. Additionally, the MagniFi Mini is capable of wireless music streaming directly from a smartphone, tablet or other compatible device leveraging Google Home™ or Bluetooth, making it the ideal all-in-one sound bar for any home.

Polk Audio’s family of sound bars include a solution for every home theater enthusiast; from technology-forward options to bars that offer classic great sound. In addition to the Signa S1 and MagnFi Mini, other offerings include:

  • Polk Omni SB1 Plus ($699.95) — The Omni SB1 is a DTS Play-Fi enabled sound bar system that creates a broad, enveloping soundstage for movies, music and more. Recent app updates allow consumers to configure two Omni S2 or S2R speakers as wireless surrounds for an elevated home theater configuration to a true 5.1 surround sound experience. Polk’s Voice Adjust technology utilizes an optimized 3-speaker array with controllable voice channel level to reproduce clear, crisp dialogue at all volumes. Additionally, Polk’s exclusive Full Complement Bass technology enables the bar to easily create the lowest frequency ranges creating a warmer, rich bass; while SmartBar™ technology allows the bar to learn a TV’s remote control for ease-of-use. Finally, the included 8-inch wireless subwoofer gives the system a rich bottom end while eliminating the clutter of wires.
  • MagniFi ($499.95) — The MagniFi is designed for larger flat panel TVs, offering minimalist, clutter-free design and a compact, wireless subwoofer for big bass impact without the hassle of wires. With three 3 inch drivers housed within the sleek body, the MagniFi offers room-filling audio, whether it’s movies, television or music.
  • MagniFi One ($299.99) — The MagniFi One includes  Voice Adjust, a super slim design and rich room-filling sound, while also adding new technologies. Some key features include night mode, which drops the low frequency response of the sound bar and sub’s driver array. Also included are Bluetooth and SmartBar™ capabilities, which allow seamless integration with your cable box or TV’s existing IR remote while delivering quality sound from your smartphone, tablet or other compatible device.
