Polk Audio Adds Two New Dolby Atmos/DTS:X Soundbars

Polk Audio has introduced two new flagship soundbar systems, MagniFi Max AX and MagniFi Max AX SR. These compact, high-performance systems provide Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound, thanks to 11-speaker arrays featuring dedicated center channels, up-firing height speakers, and Polk’s patented Stereo Dimensional Array (SDA) technology. Both models include wireless subwoofers for extended bass response; MagniFi Max AX SR adds two wireless surround speakers for total sonic immersion. Music streaming, custom sound modes and eARC connectivity round out the features of these all-in-one, accessibly priced systems.

MagniFi Max AX soundbars include dedicated up-firing speakers that provide the critical overhead element of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X object-oriented sound formats. Polk’s fourth-generation patented SDA technology eliminates interaural crosstalk to deliver an ultra-wide soundstage that expands beyond the soundbar to fill the room. MagniFi Max AX presents sound sources with pinpoint accuracy.

MagniFi Max AX and MagniFi Max AX SR each include a 10-inch down-firing subwoofer that delivers deep bass. Wireless connection allows for convenient placement without cable clutter.

Expand the surround capabilities of MagniFi Max AX with Polk SR2 Wireless Rear Surround Speakers ($199), available separately, or with the wireless surround speakers included with the MagniFi Max AX SR system.

One-touch Movie, TV and Music Modes optimize MagniFi Max AX’s bass response, clarity and soundstage for every listening scenario. Night Mode raises speech and lowers bass for late-night listening. VoiceAdjust technology raises the volume of voices over other soundtrack elements for enhanced intelligibility. BassAdjust balances the low-end response of the soundbar and subwoofer for seamless bass.

MagniFi Max AX and MagniFi Max AX SR support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth streaming via Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Spotify Connect, or any Works with Alexa-enabled music service.

Setup is simple with 3-in/1-out high-speed, high-bandwidth 4K HDMI connectivity and input switching. Connect the soundbars to gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, streaming boxes, and more. Connection to your TV is via HDMI eARC or ARC with the included HDMI cable; an optical input allows connection to older devices.

MagniFi Max AX includes a remote and works with most TV remotes out of the box. Its front-panel OLED display indicates adjustments and automatically dims when not in use. And MagniFi MAX AX is Roku TV-ready for even easier configuration and control.

The soundbars can be placed on a TV console or wall-mounted to accommodate any home theater design.

MagniFi Max AX ($799) and MagniFi Max AX SR ($899) soundbar systems will be available in October direct from PolkAudio.com and at authorized Polk retailers in the U.S. and in other territories.
