Vista, Calif. (Oct. 7, 2015)—Polk Audio, a high-performance audio brand with over a 40-year legacy of sound engineering and design expertise, has announced the availability of its newest home theater sound bar the MagniFi One ($299.99), featuring dialogue-enhancing technologies and new Night mode. Complementing Polk’s popular MagniFi sound bar which included the company’s patent-pending VoiceAdjust™ technology, the MagniFi One continues the tradition adding both, Sports and Night modes to guarantee a superior listening experience no matter the type of content.
"When enjoying entertainment like sports, action movies or popular TV shows, listeners want to be immersed in the excitement while still being able to experience clear dialog,” said Michael Greco, global brand director, Polk Audio. “Our design team focused on creating a streamlined yet adaptive user experience with efficient set-up, a choice of different modes based on the listener’s preference and the ability to intelligibly adjust audio based on what people are watching. Consequently, the MagniFi One’s greatest virtue is its audio enhancing features for our users’ ever-changing and varied listening preferences—a goal central to Polk Audio’s design philosophy.”
As Polk’s latest home theater sound bar offering, the MagniFi One delivers room-filling sound with built-in bass drive technology that improves lower midrange, upper bass and tonal richness. Its VoiceAdjust™ technology dramatically increases vocals independent of program material and volume level to provide clean, crisp dialogue whether sitting directly in front of the TV or off to the side. With separate controls for Voice, Bass, and Master Volume via a simple easy-to-use remote, listeners can enjoy music, movies and games with unmatched levels of clarity. When it comes to less disruptive listening, MagniFi One’s Night mode drops the low frequency response of the sound bar and sub’s driver array, reducing the amount of sound that carries into nearby rooms—so users don’t disturb others. In addition, the MagniFi One features sound bar and subwoofer time alignment, meaning that it recognizes when subwoofer signals are transmitted wirelessly to make measures for the acoustic output to arrive time-coherently.
In designing the MagniFi One, Polk’s engineers focused on keeping the sound bar and wireless subwoofer as slim and unobtrusive as possible. Sitting at just under 2-inches tall, the sound bar houses two 3-by-1-inch full range drivers, built-in critically tuned bass ports and Dolby Digital® decoding. MagniFi One also has an optical input, one analog input, key hole slots for wall mounting and rubber feet to reduce vibration and scuffs for setting atop a table or entertainment center. The sound bar and wireless subwoofer system takes minutes to setup with limited extraneous cables and complex operation. Finally, the system’s Bluetooth and SmartBar™ capabilities 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.
MagniFi One is available now at polkaudio.com as well as Amazon, Best Buy.com, and other national retailers. For more information on Polk’s collection of sound bars and products, please visit polkaudio.com.
