Polk Audio Introduces Omni S6, a High Performance Wireless Music Streaming Speaker
Sep 22 15
Continuing to expand its presence in wireless, multi-room audio, Polk Audio-a high-performance audio brand with over a 40-year legacy of sound expertise-has announced its newest wireless streaming speaker: the Omni S6. Joining the Omni Collection, the Omni S6 (MSRP: $349.95) is ideal for medium- to large-sized rooms, and produces astonishingly loud, rich and room-filling sound for a single stereo speaker. The Omni S6 is the first speaker within the Omni Collection to support playing music via a 3.5mm jack directly to the speaker and re-streaming music to all of your Omni wireless speakers. Setup is quick and simple out of the box, and the new speaker features DTS Play-Fi® technology for instant access to popular streaming music services like Spotify Connect® and Pandora®, personal music libraries and Internet radio stations, which can be played anywhere in the home wirelessly from a phone, tablet or PC. The Omni S6's curved transducer array produces vibrant, room-filling stereo sound by way of two 4-inch drivers, two 0.75-inch tweeters and a dedicated four-channel, 100-watt digital amplifier. New stereo pairing functionality enables two Omni S6 speakers to work in unison as a designated left and right channel. Polk built the speaker with the companies' proprietary Dynamic Balance™ technology—which uses specific loudspeaker materials that enhance overall audio output and limit sound distortion—ensuring the speaker delivers an authentic and immersive listening experience. To seamlessly fit into any room of the home, the design has the same warm tones, curved edges and premium materials found within the entire Omni Collection, and it exclusively features a flat backside so that it can be placed flush against a wall without inhibiting the sound. The Omni S6 comes in black or white options. Coinciding with the Omni S6 debut, streaming of Spotify Connect into multiple rooms is now available for Android and iOS customers through the free Polk Omni app. Listeners have instant access to a robust music catalog of over 30 million tracks through the newly updated Spotify service, along with the ability to control and play content throughout the home to multiple Polk Omni and other DTS Play-Fi-enabled products. In addition to Spotify Connect availability, consumers have access to a wide selection of music streaming options from the most popular music streaming services, including Pandora and others. Consumers can also play their favorite songs from personal music libraries stored on iTunes® as well as music from thousands of Internet radio stations. An update to Polk's Omni app will be available in the coming months and will include improvements to usability, more control and new features with special attention paid to the set up process, graphical user interface and the ability for the S6 to support re-streaming. Omni S6 can serve as a standalone speaker or connect with other products featured in the Omni Collection, including: the compact Omni S2 tabletop speaker, the compact and portable Omni S2 Rechargeable speaker, the Omni SB1 sound bar and wireless subwoofer system, the Omni A1 amplifier, and the Omni P1 pre-amp. Thanks to the DTS Play-Fi open ecosystem, users can mix-and-match with other speakers that leverage this technology to create a whole-home, wireless audio experience. The Omni S6 retails for $349.95 and is available now for purchase. The black Omni S6 is available for purchase at Magnolia locations inside Best Buy, and both black and white wireless speakers are available at Amazon, BestBuy.com, Crutchfield, PolkAudio.com, and other select retailers.
Polk Audio Announces the Debut of Striker Pro
Jun 16 15
Polk Audio announced the debut of its latest gaming headset, Striker Pro, at E3 2015. The Striker Pro is fine-tuned with a patented Dynamic Balance driver design to deliver the most realistic and balanced audio experience. Striker Pro will be available in an officially licensed Xbox One version with a wireless headset adapter as well as a PlayStation 4 compatible version. Both headsets are PC, Mac and mobile compatible. The Striker Pro features a newly designed, flexible, ultra-clear sounding removable omni-directional microphone with push button mute for both console and PC gaming, as well as a small and discrete in-line microphone for mobile use. Striker Pro comes with three detachable cables and two removable microphones giving gamers one great-sounding headset for all their gaming needs. Anew leather-wrapped spring steel headband and pivoting ear cups provide durability and comfort for long periods of wear. Striker Pro is unique and versatile in that it allows users to conveniently switch between different gaming modes with its three included detachable cables all designed to enhance each gaming experience. Cable offerings include: Mobile Connect Cable a 3.5mm microphone cable with in-line controls lets users play, pause and make phone calls without having to touch their device; Dual-Jack Console Controller Connect Cable unlike the standard 3.5mm cable, this 1.3 meter custom console cable is designed for high-fidelity audio to enhance microphone performance and remove crosstalk. Additionally, both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions allow for easy access to master volume and microphone mute without having to use the onscreen menus. The PlayStation 4 in-line also includes an attenuator to adjust user microphone's gain to ensure it does not distort during online gaming sessions; Dual-Jack, Detachable, Extra-long Pro PC Connect Cable Polk's very own 3-meter long Pro PC connect cable lowers the noise floor to eliminate crosstalk and boost microphone clarity for exceptional audio performance. Both the victory red Striker Pro P1 for PlayStation 4 and dark emerald Striker Pro Zx for Xbox One will be available in September at select retailers and on PolkAudio.com.
