      Great Speaker With Awesome Features

      The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. Years ago, before we lived in our current house, we had a sound system in the living room. It was nice, having a booming speaker presenting crystal clear audio. And then we moved, and like all things when you move, parts go missing. A few months later our daughter was born, and it just didn’t seem like we had time to find all the wiring for a complicated surround sound system. We were just listening to TV audio again. Now don’t get me wrong, most TVs these days have decent speakers. But they just don’t compare to the quality of a dedicated speaker. Five years passed before we finally got another dedicated speaker system for a TV in our house. The Polk Command Bar’s quality as a speaker is worth its price alone. Yet, it does more than just act as a speaker for your television. The Command Bar has Amazon Alexa built in. We have set up our Command Bar in our bedroom, allowing us to control the volume through Alexa. It also allows us to do other things like turning off WiFi enabled lights downstairs without the need to make an extra trip at night. These cards come with the Polk out of the box, and provide a good primer on how to use the speaker. The Polk Command Bar features a 220W speaker along with a subwoofer that gives a nice bass sound. It also has Bluetooth enabled, allowing us to play our music through our phones if we want. If you happen to have a FireTV you can do even more by using voice commands to watch your favorite programs. (Like the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel! Just a suggestion.) It also features a far-field microphone. What is a far-field microphone? Well, to put it simply, it is a microphone that has been designed to pick-up noises from a distance greater than what a typical microphone could accomplish. Because of this, you don’t need to shout across the room! The on-board Alexa will activate just by speaking in a normal voice. The set-up was simple, using HDMI and a supplied optical cable to connect to the television. The speaker has a low-profile form factor which is perfect because it doesn’t block our screen at all. It also looks sleek, fitting in nicely in our bedroom.

      Simple and powerful sound bar with Alexa

      Polk, a known maker of quality audio equipment, has created a kit for the home that is both simple and fully featured. Most of us want high-quality sound without having to also buy multiple cables and spend lots of time setting up a complex system. Amazon’s Alexa has been added to the Polk Audio Command Sound Bar. The small limitations it has now, should be fixed by Amazon in future software updates. One feature I noticed which was not ready was sound bar to Echo messaging. I enjoyed that my experience with movies, TV series and Bluetooth audio devices have all been impressively upgraded with a sound bar and subwoofer. 260W of total output power pumps out high-quality sound, which is very important to me. Placing it below the TV on a table or mounting it on a wall gives this sound bar versatility that other more complicated home audio solutions do not have. Its 2” design is enough to leave a small gap between where my TV is in my living room. A pair of HDMI ports on the back, a slot for an Amazon Fire TV unit, a USB port, and an HDMI out for the TV, all help to keep down on cable clutter. Polk placed the tweeters in the sound bar at either end with the more powerful center channel drivers in the middle, where they belong. Most audio from movies and TV shows are center channel heavy. This single sound bar produces an impressive home theater like experience. I am happy with both the audio and Alexa voice assistant experiences. Getting them to work correctly on the first try was impressive. Polk understands how we need to keep things simple.

      Creating Magic in Your Home Theater

      One of the most important components to a decent home theater is sound. The Polk Command Bar with Amazon Alexa Built-in gives your home theater the top quality sound you need. The Polk Command Bar consists of two parts, the soundbar itself, and a stand-alone subwoofer. The subwoofer is designed to connect wirelessly to the soundbar, eliminating the need for a wired connection. This lets you place both components in optimum locations without worrying about the connection. I especially love that Amazon’s Alexa is already built in. This Alexa is just about as fully functional as the dedicated units from Amazon, with only room to room messaging and a couple other items not implemented. And even those are coming with future updates as Amazon continues to empower third-party solutions. The Polk Command Bar is simple to hook up, whether you are using it with a cable and TV or another source. I used it with an Apple TV, and everything worked great. There is a TV HDMI output, saving you the expense of splitting the HDMI output from a cable box. I definitely recommend the Polk Command Bar, not only for a great sound solution for your home theater, but it can serve as a home hub and information system as well.

      Quality Surround Sound at an Affordable Price

      Setup for the Polk Command Bar was simple and done in less than 15 minutes, by far, one of the easiest setups I've ever dealt with. The soundbar and subwoofer offer 260 watts of power and provide awesome clarity and bass! We felt like we were at the football game while watching our favorite team play. It even freaked my cat out as she tried to figure out where all the voices were coming from. We love the hands-free Alexa feature and refer to our Spotify playlist often. We are still learning the commands and questions we can give/ask but we're getting the hang of it! So far, we have enjoyed it for movies, music, sports, and asking about our weather. We'll be adding our Fire TV to it soon!! It also comes with a remote that offers simple functions like turning the Alexa mic off or increasing/decreasing the voice or bass sounds. So far it's a big hit and I can't wait until we have friends over to show them. Our family highly recommends it!

      Utter piece of garbage...

      I bought this soundbar in-store along with a couple TVs and was excited to use it as i have several Amazon Echos already and lots of smart home devices that work with it. This system was pushed very hard by the home theater "expert" working there. First thing i noticed after linking with my Amazon account is that the microphone array on the Command Bar would require that i was literally six inches from the speaker or yelling at it to even get alexa to respond. I tried a couple things like rebooting and whatnot thinking it could just be a fluke but i never could resolve that problem. The biggest issue i had was that i could not get it working AT ALL with multiple TVs, using multiple connection types including HDMI ARC, optical, and both HDMI ARC and optical together as was oddly suggested by the manual. When i finally somehow got sound to come out of the bar from my televisions it was INSANELY quiet even turned up to full volume. I ensured that my TVs were not set to variable audio and they were in fact set to fixed so that was not the issue. I went back to the store this morning and returned it and instead bought the Samsung HW-N450 and it blows the Polk Command Bar out of the water on sound, both highs and lows, and was $20 cheaper! While the Polk Command Bar is a great concept, the actual execution of the product is horrible. I wouldn't recommend this thing to my worst enemy.

      This Command Bar is easy enough for everyone in the family to interface with. The other features of the Polk Soundbar are impressive: - 260W total output power provides quality sound for our favorite movies, shows, games and music. - The four-speaker enclosure features two 1-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ mid/woofers and two 1″ tweeter drivers. - Music streaming is available through a compatible Bluetooth-enabled device. - The design is slim and streamlined. The bar sits only 2” tall so it won’t block your TV screen. - Along with the 2 HDMI inputs, there is a Toslink and a built-in USB port. The HDMI ports are designed and spaced to fit Fire TV and other wide HDMI streaming devices. The USB port also powers original and 4K versions of Fire TV. Outputs are also HDMI. - A remote is included for easy operation from a distance.

      We were able to take this out of the box and have it set up in about 25 minutes. It probably would have taken us less time but there was a NERF gun battle in the midst of this setup and, well, things happen. NERF darts don't hurt the Command Bar. Sound quality is excellent. As with our previous subwoofer that was a separate piece of stereo equipment, we loved the enhancement of special effects especially when we watched several Star Wars movies the first weekend we had it. This is a whole lot of quality sound in a nice tidy package- I love that it's just a few simple pieces and not a lot to dust around and under. The husband and the kids are more into the sound quality and trying to be the "boss" of Alexa all the time. Considering buying a second one for my in laws for a holiday gift.

      Looks Great ! Sounds Better!

      Right out of the gate I was very impressed with the Polk Command Bar. My order shipped quickly, arriving a day early. Pretty cool packaging and was extremely easy to set up taking me about 10 min. My Fire stick and PS4 worked immediately without any trouble. I used to have a echo in my family room and an echo dot in the kitchen. The Command Bar is more than enough to replace both on my main floor. The sound is really clean. My favorite thing about it is when watching a movie I can here what people are saying instead of the background noise filtering it out. Controlling the volume of a movie with your voice comes in handy when your to comfortable and can’t find the remote. Way better than previous sound bars I've owned. Alexa can easily understand my commands even when Im far away. At this price point it does exactly what it needs to do. I would highly recommend this Polk CommandBar to everyone.
