Polk Audio Signa 4 Atmos Soundbar and Woofer Announced
Polk Audio has joined the Dolby Atmos soundbar fray with its seven driver Signa S4.
Polk's Signa 4 promises to create immersive virtual surround sound without making your living space resemble a hi-fi store or running cables to many speakers.
Polk states that the Signa S4 can also up-mix non-Dolby Atmos audio, rendering height, surround and centre channels to create a virtual Dolby Atmos experience.
The Signa S4's seven drivers include two upward-firing speakers that deliver Dolby Atmos height channels to create sounds overhead. Especially handy for placing sound effects such as bullets whizzing by or helicopter's chugging overhead.
The new Dolby Atmos soundbar comes partnered with a wireless subwoofer whose Bass Adjust feature lets you tweak the low-frequency output on both the soundbar and woofer. Fear not; there are also some presets, including settings for movies, music and late-night watching without disturbing the neighbours or your snoozing cohabitors.
The Signa 4's HDMI port is equipped for eARC, for native Dolby Atmos streams from a TV, and you can beam content to it wirelessly from your mobile over Bluetooth. Furthermore, you can wall-mount it too.
The Polk Audio Signa S4 is available now for US$350.
