Polk Audio Packs Surround Sound Technology Into Magnifi 2 Soundbar


Polk Audio has made an announcement regarding the latest addition to its well known MagniFi series soundbars. The latest addition is MagniFi 2 ($499, €499, £499). The MagniFi 2 has been designed to fill the gap for a multi-channel home cinema listening experience. It brings forth the Polk Audio’s rich heritage of audio excellence. 

The MagniFi 2 comes packed with the performance-tuned driver array and the patented Stereo Dimensional Array by Polk Audio. Additionally, it takes the sound experience to a whole new level with the 3D Audio Mode which leverages Polk Audio’s SDA technology to create virtual height channels.

The soundbar comes with an easy to use and setup procedure. You can easily attach it to any 4K or HD TV with the HDMI and Optical cables that come with it. In order to ensure the premium quality of 4K HDR content, the soundbar has three HDMI 2.0 ports. You can control the volume on the MagniFi 2 with most Samsung, LG, Vizio, TCL, and Sony TV remotes as well as most CEC enabled TVs. to top it all, the patented Voice Adjust Technology by Polk Audio is also added to the soundbar allowing users to customize voice levels for crystal clear dialogue and intelligibility. 

“Many soundbars improve TV sound dramatically, but few offer a compelling immersive surround sound experience,” said Michael McCole, senior product marketing manager for soundbars at Polk Audio. “Using tools like Polk Audio’s patented SDA technology, 3D Audio Mode for virtual height and Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, the MagniFi 2 soundbar is a significant step closer to a multi-channel listening experience at a much more attainable price.”

In addition to advanced audio capabilities, the MagniFi 2 soundbar features several technologies designed to make it easy-to-use and accessible:

Polk Smart Remote Compatibility: 

The ability of the MagniFi 2 making it compatible with most CEC enabled TV remotes makes it extremely convenient for the user. It also comes with built-in support for popular IR TV remotes from Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio for easy use. With IR Learn, the soundbar can learn to work with the TV remote if the codes are not already built-in.

Universal Compatibility: 

The universal compatibility of the soundbar allows it to be used with any TV. 

Low-Profile Design:

The soundbar stands at just 2 inches tall with a very sleek and slim profile. As a result, it is very low profile and does not cause any obstruction to your view or the sensor for the TV remote.  

Array of Audio/Video Connectivity: 

For ultimate flexibility, the soundbar includes three built-In Ultra HD 4K HDMI (HDCP 2.2) inputs, one HDMI (ARC) output, optical input for TV audio, Chromecast for audio, and Bluetooth.

The MagniFi 2 is also outfitted with several preset EQ settings for Movies, Music and Sports, which optimize the soundbar and subwoofer levels to ensure users get the clearest dialogue, big surround sound and deep bass for the best audio and home theater sound.
