Polk Expands SurroundBar Lineup

Polk Audio said Wednesday that it has expanded its SurroundBar lineup to add the SurroundBar 9000 Instant Home Theater (IHT) and SurroundBar 5000 IHT. The 9000 and 5000 will arrive in September at MSRPs of $849 and $399, respectively.

“With the 9000, we’ve really taken the driver technology to new heights,” Polk Product Line Manager Al Baron said in a statement. “And, it includes all of the technologies that have made our Instant Home Theater line such a success, including SmartBar programming, which enables our SurroundBars to easily learn power on/off, volume up/down and mute from your existing TV remote control. It makes operation as simple as can be.”

The product will be exhibited at CEA Line Shows in June.
