Pros and Cons
Pros2

You're not going to rattle the rafters with it. Sound clarity is very good, and that's what we needed for our old ears.

The s60a handily eclipses the denon 216, polk signa s2 and sony htx 8500. It's still not atmos, but it outperforms the sony 8500, which does support atmos. A great example of exemplary customer service.

Sonos allows ok google to interrupt arc signal interrupts google assistant playback. Wont pair with brand new samsung tv. When i ask alexa to play music from spotify, it says this device does not support spotify playback, and yet i can play music if i...  Read More

Used new batteries, tried taking batteries out of the handset, power off/on etc. Didn't work at all most of the time. It is especially annoying when you usually turn your computer on at 5 am for work and everyone in the house was sleeping.

It fails on the registration after spinning for 2 minutes. Everything inside had been opened and then tossed back in except the remote. Ended up having to pry the case to slide it off.

I am supremely underwhelmed at the sound quality. It has decent sound quality, but about 6 months into having it im already starting to hear some distortion. My biggest complaint though are the volume and bluetooth settings.

Many of the samsung sound bars have this flaw. The only way to update firmware on the sound bar is with usb. The app is * - it's smartthings, takes time to get to the soundbar page, and also there is no widget. Seems similar issues occur on multiple s...  Read More

The react has bluetooth connectivity. It responds to the name alexa. It also has the do not disturb setting like other echo devices. It's compatible with magnifi mini ax. I'm not an alexa user, but it does force you to set it up through alexa.

Polk react sound bar is awesome! Polk makes some of the best audio equipment that lasts forever, and i should have known better to try a competitor. Tiny light in front of bar on is no distraction as far as i'm concerned. Pictured with a 60” insignia ...  Read More

Polk soundbar is a great addition when paired with a good subwoofer. It replaces an entire sound system with receiver, 5 speakers and miles of wire. It's a clean nice upgrade.

Cons3

If you turn the volume up, the voice prompt gets louder. You have to get quite surgical with your finger to get it to work. Third, the remote is terrible, especially the volume *.

The sound is fairly good, but the sound field is pretty shallow. Which is why i am reviewing something i do not own. Don’t buy this item it is really bad.

Polk react soundbar is a lemon. The surround speakers are disappointing.
