Pros and Cons
Pros3

If you’re looking to get rid of the speakers that are mounted to your walls, or on bookshelves or on stands behind your seating area, this is a good option. Important to if your tv has an hdmi (arc) input, you only need one hdmi cable.

Digital atmos surround mimicking does an exceptional job. Dialogues are nice and clear and clearly seems like it comes from the center driver (mimicking the center channel), even at smart mode on. I have a sonos beam gen 2 with play:1 as surround sate...  Read More

Easy for someone more agile, without trifocals & a bit overweight. That download is important. Makes everything sync with little effort on your part. Not much tuning available for eq, but this was expected.

Jbl product wasn't meant to last. Unfortunately it disappoints. What a wast f of time. Cheapest chinese products have better quality control.

The speaker is still very muddy. Speech is difficult to decipher unless you crank the volume. The other one has a much safer simple plug and play option, the way a speaker should be.

Wireless subwoofer is worthless without control unit that fails to function. The bar itself works but sounds very flat without the sub. No true need to be connected to wifi or bluetooth should you not have those.

No warranty. Can't find receipt so no warranty coverage. Tried different connections to no avail. I'm super bummed because while it was working, it worked well.

Pros4

The sound bar comes in a box the size of a love seat. The material is really nice and it’s pretty lightweight. I do really like the lights that polk audio hid under the mesh material.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You can tweak it so many ways to make it just right for you. When watching a movie in a dark room, i have to turn the light back on to see the lettering on the remote.

Polk audio react sound bar and subwoofer is like bringing the movie theater to your living room. The 3d immersion really sets a pleasurable media consuming experience.

It has 6 drivers and 2 tweeters. Easy to set up & i really like the wireless subwoofer. This unit is easy to setup.

Polk magnifi2 is a soundbar and wireless subwoofer package that looks impressive until you try to set it up. The tv always knows it's connected to the magnifi but tells me there is no data from the source whether i pick hdmi 1 (cable box) or 2 (roku) ...  Read More
