And after decades of innovative engineering and beautiful design, the home audio manufacturer has made great strides in reaching this goal. Take a look at their product offering on bestbuy.ca. You’ll see that sound is their single focus. And they know what people want in their speaker systems: Simple setup, sleek looks, and, above all, rich and immersive sound quality. Read on to learn more about how the Polk MagniFi MAX SR true 5.1 home theatre sound bar system makes the perfect companion for your home theatre, and then enter this contest for a chance of winning one of your very own.

Polk make it look easy

If you’ve been avoiding installing a surround sound system because you don’t want to deal with the tedious installation, or you just don’t see the benefit of adding more speakers to your current TV setup, Polk have just the system to change your mind.

Installing a surround sound system in your living room used to be such a pain. You needed to be handy with a hammer and few other tools to tackle the job. You see, speaker wires for rear surround speakers (the speakers you place to the left and right of your listening position on the sofa or armchair) would usually run across an open floor space and present a tripping hazard, not to mention how they would diminish the carefully planned aesthetic of the room. And concealing speaker wire was no simple feat. It involved snaking cables through the walls, installing raceways, applying adhesive speaker wire, covering them up with rugs, tucking them between your carpet and baseboard, and even painting them. Now might be a good time to mention you’re allergic to DIY.

The sound bar boasts a unique mounting system to keep it level and centered under your TV

MagniFi MAX SR eliminates the need for all that backbreaking labour. This system includes a MAX sound bar that fits nicely under almost any TV, wireless subwoofer that can be placed almost anywhere in the room, and two SR1 wireless rear surround speakers. The operative word, “wireless”, could be the game changer some of you were waiting for. It renders speaker wire obsolete and instantly offers a cleaner look and less complicated setup.

Included HDMI and optical cables make installation quick and easy (no fumbling around with daunting receivers), while a clever mounting system makes it easy to attach your sound bar and rear speakers to the wall. The rear surround speakers can also be placed on two side tables on either end of your sofa. Plug the rear speakers and subwoofer in, and they’ll automatically sync with the sound bar. It’s that easy. Wi-Fi, Chromecast, and Bluetooth support make streaming music from your favorite apps a cinch too, and you can even connect your Google Home speaker, so you can control what you’re listening to with your voice.

Place your wireless rear speakers on side tables or mount them to the wall

Expect an amazing soundscape

Once set up, put MagniFi MAX SR to the test with something that really shows off its potential, like an opera, symphony orchestra, or live rock concert performance. The sound bar’s 7-driver array is complemented perfectly by the booming bass of the powerful 8” ported subwoofer, while two rear speakers help deliver a truly dynamic surround sound experience. Besides music, this advanced 400-watt, 5.1 channel system is optimized for movies, TV, and sports, and packs multiple technologies that work together to deliver sheer delight to your ears.

Patented SDA digital surround technology creates an expansive, multi-dimensional audio experience to place you and your family at the epicenter of whatever’s happening on-screen, whether you’re watching a blazing car chase in a modern-day crime caper, the latest Attenborough-narrated wildlife documentary, or dying minutes of Sunday night football.

Or, if you’re craving a courtroom drama or other dialogue-driven story, Voice Adjust technology lets you customize the voice levels so you can hear every word of what’s happening. No more double takes of scenes with conversations you didn’t catch the first time around or annoying your partner with questions like, “what did she just say?”.

In conclusion, the MagniFi MAX SR is a powerful surround sound system that’s a cinch to install while delivering mind-blowing sound for all kinds of entertainment. If, like Polk, you’re ready to make amazing sound your mission, the MagniFi MAX SR will make it a simple mission to accomplish.
