Soundbar with Alexa

blarrierblarrier Posts: 1
I just came across the new Polk soundbar with Alexa to be released on June 30th
I’ve been liking for something to compete w the Sonos soundbar and sub st a Lower pricepoint and I think I found it!
I hope future products come fully integrated like Sonos so I can add single Polk speakers that I can address individually or in a ground like the Sonia ONE
What are the chances Polk has that in the plans ?!

    Not necessarily... they have their place... not sure where that is but they have one :wink:

    Main system: Technics SL3200, Shure M97xE, Lafayette LR1100 for tuner, Hagerman Audio Labs Bugle 2 phono stage, NAD C352 integrated, Boston Acoustics VR 2, Boston PV500, generic ICs, and BJC Belden speaker cables.

    Desktop: Dell Precision 690 running iTunes, Yamaha RX-v665, Monitor Audio R90s, Velodyne VA-907, generic ICs and speaker cables.
    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    I have no idea, if they do they will announce it at some point or another.

    Not so fast, Jesse; I mean, how often will a woman always listen to what you have to say?? :D
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    My roommate has an Alexa. Every time he leaves Colorado for a while I go upstairs and whisper "Alexa, this will be painless. Shhhh, shhhh, shhhh." and unplug it.

    Smart man.

    It's probably still there, but your phone might still be connected to the soundbar (initial part of the soundbar setup).
