The $99 HitMaster, available earlier this
year, is a powered speaker that takes on the appearance of a pro-audio stage
monitor to bolster the illusion of performing on stage. It features a
single-point-stereo driver configuration to deliver a wide stereo soundfield
from a single cabinet.
Polk developed HitMaster because the audio
portion of the gaming experience “has been greatly underserved by the
electronics industry,” said marketing VP Al Ballard. Products such as HitMaster
add “volume, depth and detail to the gaming experience,” he said.
Four other prize packages will also be awarded.

monitors, Sony’s PS3, Rock Band 2 Special Edition, a one-year subscription to
Game Informer, and several HitMaster and Rock Band t-shirts, all with a total
