    This format has got to be a joke. It does not reflect well on the quality that Polk is known for.



    Hay II! What's with that little icon thingy that shows up beside our screen name? I don't like mine one bit! However, it does kind of look like me.... Is it permanent, or does it change randomly when we sign in?

    It's absolutely horrible looking. The design is cluttered. I find it HARDER on the eyes. But I'm not surprised at all. Whoever is doing Polk's recent branding and identity is missing the mark imo.

    The audio community laughed at the new Polk logo, many commented it was the worst they'd seen. Wait until they get a load of this cluster F!!!

    Well... yeah... except for those of us of such advanced age that we don't remember where we left off...

    Whoa - it uses HTML tags now... I don't know if that's good or bad, but it's different...
