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.

  1. I would love to watch movies with a sound bar. I find I have trouble hearing the words especially if the actors have an accent

  2. i would love this for the Grammy’s the music would surround my condo and it would be rocking in here

  3. My daughter now loves soccer and would love for us to watch the games with the mind blowing sound described (my husband would also love it as he is an avid sports fan-every sport). I would love it as when we have a date night and listen to music, it would be awesome. All around, my whole family would love it.

  4. The big musical movies from Grease to Chicago will sound so much better with MagniFi MAX surround sound because the vocals would be clearer and orchestra music much richer than what I have now.

  5. Will provide a less “intrusive” footprint in my living room and gently blend in with the decor and provide excellent surround sound! Will make a huge difference!

  6. We recently replaced our old, second-hand tv for a new one. We got rid of the old sound bar at the same time, but it sure would be great to have a new one to match for movie nights and binge watching!

  7. I would gift this to my parents. They finally got a great tv….but they have no sound system to really get the full entertainment experience.

  8. As a movie fanatic, this would add to all my watching experiences. It would be exciting to immerse myself in “Annihilation “.

  9. I have 4 school kids and they always love to watch documentaries about animals and the ecosystem and many other things about science and technology. The MagniFi MAX would definitely help to provide them with a fun learning experience!

  10. I would love to replace going to the theatre by having amazing sound at home. We have a large family so going to the movie theatre isn’t always possible! I wil, just need to perfect the movie theatre popcorn!

  11. Any action movie would be great to experience from the MagniFi MAX surround sound. And my husband would be able to hear it! Thanks BEST BUY for a great opportunity!

  12. All actions movies would be become 110% more incredible if I was experiencing them the way they were meant to sound. This would drastically change my home entertainment system

  13. The movie Tin Tin would be my choice to benefit the most from the MagniFi MAX surround sound experience. The musical score to the movie would be brought to life.

  14. Beethoven’s 5th symphony would be my pick to benefit the most from the MagniFi MAX surround sound experience. So much is missed from inferior systems that the MagniFi MAX surround sound experience would enhance.

  15. The Back To The Future Trilogy would be even more phenomenal with the MagniFi MAX surround sound. The sound of 88 miles per hour would be even better!

  16. Star Wars (the original 1977 version) would benefit from the MagniFi MAX surround sound experience. There are so many subtle sounds that get missed by other systems that would be brought out by the MagniFi MAX surround sound experience.

  17. MagniFi MAX surround sound would make wathching Mission Impossible movies all the more thrilling. Listening the to theme song on surround sound would be WOW!

  18. This would stop my husband from complaining he doesn’t have a sound system. He would love one for all his concert dvd’s (especially his U2 collection) and to watch CFL games.

  19. Movies need to be seen and heard as they were meant to be. Films like Avatar and any of the Pirates of the Caribbean series make the movie experience just that, an experience. Skimping on one aspect means you miss out on part of the intended experience.

  20. This would be fantastic for music concerts but would also capture the sounds of sporting events such as NHL playoffs.

  21. Right now we are using our TVs audio 🙁 we just bought a new tv and having a new sound system will make gaming and watching movies soooo much better! I would love to watch bohemian rhapsody with the Polk audio system! My first computer speakers were Polk audio and they were amazing!
