Polk Audio’s two-piece SurroundBar 360º DVD Theater system
December 10, 2007 by Arlen Schweiger

Polk Audio has shown it knows how to do simple yet high-performance entertainment systems. Take the cool I-Sonic ES2 that lets you tear up a room with your iPod.

At next month’s CES, Polk will showcase another simple system that’s bound to impress those looking for some big sound without the clutter of a half dozen components and unwieldy speakers. It’ll be called the SurroundBar 360º DVD Theater—easy enough—with, you guessed it, a combination of a soundbar speaker and compact console.

The console will play DVDs and CDs, and also have an FM/AM tuner and front USB input for connecting your portable MP3 player. The “SurroundBar” part is a multichannel speaker in a single sleek cabinet. It uses Polk’s SDA technology and patented PowerPort bass venting to help with the realistic surround imaging.

Two sets of cradle mounts and a 15-foot cable (console to speaker) make the system flexible for installation. Two pieces for a home theater setup—that leaves you with a whole lot of room for the screen to go with it.
