    Love the A77 Kenneth. Do you know what the speaker layout is for the soundbar? Do they face forward, or are some of the 7 drivers aimed up at an angle? The grille material laps from the front, up over the top. Thanks, Lee

    They're due to release it soon. The ads have been running for months in S&V.

    I got to say, Polk makes some awesome sound bars. I bought a higher end unit a few years ago for my Sister's bedroom system. Still blows me away how good it sounds, even the little wireless bass module kicks butt.

    Watching for the release date closely!

    The Sony TV I'm getting has two HDR HDMI inputs at #2 and #3. The ARC is at HDMI#3 which would connect to the soundbar. Does the MagnifiMax SR have HDR at all three inputs, to pass thru to the TV?

    Have a safe Labor Day Weekend.

    HDR on the inputs, as in 18Gbps 60p, or the lesser 10.2 Gbps at 24p.

    Does anyone know if the MagniFi Max would be able to connect to the Omni A1 to power some in-ceiling speakers for the surrounds?

    No it only works with the sr1 wireless surrounds.

  • By the way been playing with a polk Magnifi max Sr these last few days and it is spectacular! Totally changes your opinion of what a soundbar can do!

    I'm from Asia (not the States). Just got it less than a week ago. Am sure the States will be getting their stock in the next few days as well.

    Maybe for typing "all of y'all"? That was quite egregious from a grammatical standpoint.

    ...okay.... SO?? how is the soundbar?

    Its excellent in every way! I'm not normally one to get impressed easily but if you closed your eyes and didn't know better, you'd never in a million years guess its a soundbar playing all that beautiful music! I use a lot of Spotify so this aspect is particularly important to me and its great. Especially in all-stereo mode.

    As for movies, it gets loud and really fills the room. And sounds very full (not thin). I like it better than the small blackstone setup. And the surrounds work great. Way better than I thought they would especially since they are so tiny.

    I know it sounds like i'm hyping it up and theres no way its going to live up to it but thats why i'm encouraging you guys to hear it for yourselves. It really changes the game when it comes to soundbars. Every single friend who has heard the system in action has had their jaw drop :).
