New Signature "E" Series

Read that Polk is coming out with an updated Signature "E" Series.

Would love to hear from Polk directly regarding the changes/improvements vs. the original Signature Series.

    When "E" series speakers mature after a certain period of time, can they be cashed in for SDA's?

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    Maybe the "E" stands for Europe since the version showing on Polk's UK site is not on the US site and the only announcements (I wouldn't call them reviews) I see right now are from across the pond...

    That's what I originally thought, but they mention improvements over the original series, so guess we'll have to wait for more info.

    If they are in fact improved, seems like Polk would release them in all regions where the current series is offered.

    Europe had the original Signature version last year with some cosmetic differences from the US version so this is definitely an updated version from that:

    The 6.5" drivers do seem to have different construction than the previous versions. The tweeter seems to be the same, but they may have updated the crossover too.
