Polk Audio Launches New Home Theater Sound Bar with Dialogue Enhancing Technology
High-performance audio brand Polk Audio announced that it has developed a new home theater sound bar, the ManiFi One, featuring dialogue-enhancing technologies and a new Night mode.
The MagniFi One, which compliments Polk’s MagniFi sound bar, includes both Night and Sports modes to “guarantee a superior listening experience no matter the type of content,” Polk said. Night mode drops the low frequency response of the sound barand sub’s driver array, reducing the amount of sound that carries into nearby rooms, the company explained.
"When enjoying entertainment like sports, action movies or popular TV shows, listeners want to be immersed in the excitement while still being able to experience clear dialog," Michael Greco, global brand director, Polk Audio, said in a statement. "Our design team focused on creating a streamlined yet adaptive user experience with efficient set-up, a choice of different modes based on the listener's preference and the ability to intelligibly adjust audio based on what people are watching. Consequently, the MagniFi One's greatest virtue is its audio enhancing features for our users' ever-changing and varied listening preferences—a goal central to Polk Audio's design philosophy."
