    So I have had these four speakers about 8 months. There is no denying they sound very good and the price is reasonable. BUT you better be in love with the way they sound because you can not alter the settings. I will predict POLK will post a comment apologizing for my experience and encouraging me to call Tech Support. There is at any one time one "LONE RANGER" person to take calls and even though they promise you "Concierge Service" I have waited over 45 minutes. They cannot always resolve your issues, and offer that "we're trying our best!" When you turn the speakers off they do not return to the same volume level you left them at. There seems to be a default volume setting they always revert to. They will at any time without warning fall off-line with the router or will not connect at all. I have a VERY open one story floor plan with the Verizon Fios router centrally located, that should not be presenting any range issues for these Wi-Fi speakers. Polk offered to assist me with this by sending me an additional Belkin router - which caused me SO MANY PROBLEMS. First of all the Polk and the Belkin power adapters are oriented sideways so they each took up three outlets on my power strip. I had to buy another power strip to accommodate them. Then utilizing an additional router means I cannot use the Wi-Fi Play on my computer because the computer and the speakers have to be on the SAME router. Then the two routers kept interfering with each other causing log-on failures. Finally the Verizon Fios repair tech came to my home and installed a Wi-Fi extendert just for the Polk speakers, so I was able to get rid of the additional Belkin router, but the power adapter from the Polk speaker still took up three outlets. Availability of music choices is extremely limited! I cannot get Calm Radio or many more of the other stations that Polk has been unable to get agreements with. I was having an outpatient procedure and my doctor has Sonos in the exam rooms - he was able to get whatever station I wanted! I don't believe this product should have been launched until it was fully functional. It seems they are using consumers to test these speakers and suffer through all of the little quirky bugs. Updates do not offer much improvement to make up for it. For the almost $500 I have invested in the speakers and peripherals I'm not feeling it was such a good choice after all.

    Great speaker for the bedroom

    Posted

    I figured I'd try out the Polk S2 speaker because it was cheaper than the Sonos Play 1, and I've been wanting to have a speaker I can control via my phone in my bedroom. I figured why not, I can always return it... Boy was I surprised! The S2 has more than enough bass and volume to fill up my 14x12 bedroom. Even from such a small speaker, the bass is powerful enough that I can feel it shake in the bedframe (the speaker sits on my nightstand). I listened to the Play 1 at Best Buy, and I think its possible Polk made an even better speaker at a cheaper price! A few great features I've noticed on the speaker: 1. The speaker has an Aux jack (the play 1 doesn't). This comes in really handy because I can plug the speaker into my television via cord and actually hear the dialogue when i sit in bed. The speaker is also designed so that, whenever I connect to it via the app on my phone, the wifi will override the aux jack audio. And when I disconnect from the speaker via my phone, it automatically reverts back to the tv audio! Completely effortless, no need to touch any buttons. 2. The speaker has 4 drivers, and the drivers are angled away from each other so you get a bigger sound stage with some stereo effect (not as great as having 2 speakers, but definitely better than a single driver speaker like the Play 1). 3. It comes with 2 grilles, one black and one white, which was really nice because the quilt on my bed is white and it matches really well. 4. The USB port on the speaker doesn't play audio, but it does charge my phone! I don't know if this feature was intentional or not (i didn't read about it), but its really nice because i can just plug my phone into it to charge while i sleep. No need to use up another wall plug. Cons 1. Pandora is the only service on their app i really use. There are a couple more, but none i've really heard of (besides internet radio). I'm really hoping they will get Spotify soon, but Pandora isn't bad for now. 2. The app takes a little getting used to (took awhile to realize the triangle logo on the bottom right corner shows you the speakers on your network). Once you use it a couple times, though, its not too bad.

    Outstanding Technology and Sound

    Posted

    I am very impressed and pleased with the quality of these speakers. Not only is the sound rich, full, and room-filling, but the technology that is used to control the speakers is outstanding. The Polk Omni application that is used to set up the audio connection between your phone, speakers, and wireless network is extremely easy to use. The total time spent during set up was around five minutes, which included the download time of the app itself onto my Android phone. Once set up, I have spent a lot of time and had a lot of enjoyment controlling these speakers with the touch of a finger to my phone, as it seems almost futuristic to be able to do so. The Omni app also has plenty of options for which type of audio I want to hear, whether it is music that I already have on my phone or a channel that I like from Pandora. Most impressively, I’ve really enjoyed the option to search out terrestrial radio stations from throughout the world, as I have easily been able to find and listen to the radio stations that I grew up hearing in the Midwest. The app also has an option to seek out internet based podcasts as well. The absence of multiple wires and compact size is a huge benefit in my book, as extra space in my home is hard to come by. There is no extra clutter with multiple wires when I have the speakers set up in my office, which reduces the time spent when I choose to move the speakers to another area of my home. Lastly, the speakers come set up with a black grill cover, but include an additional white one. I really like the option of being able to switch the physical look of the speakers themselves. Since I plan on having these for quite some time, this is an added bonus to be able to blend the unit with the rest of my belongings based on the current décor.

    INCREDIBLE SOUND for a truly great price!!!

    INCREDIBLE SOUND for a truly great price!!! I just set up a new Polk Omni S2 wireless speaker in our master bedroom and couldn’t be more impressed or pleased. My wife and I had been looking at getting a wireless speaker unit for our room and had considered a Sonos unit, but the Polk S2 speaker offered FULL stereo unlike the more expensive, yet mono, Sonos Play 1 unit. Earlier in the year, I had installed a set of Polk Hampden speakers downstairs and really loved their sound. The Polk S2 is much smaller than the Hampden’s, but that is what we needed for our bedroom space which has very high volume ceilings to fill but limited places to put a speaker. The setup was really easy...I literally took it out of the box, plugged it in, downloaded the free Polk Omni app on my wife's iPad (and my iPhone), linked it with our Wi-Fi, and started playing from our Pandora Account. The cool thing about the Wi-Fi hookup, or what Polk calls “Play-Fi”, it that the distance your speaker is from the source is only limited by the reach of your Wi-Fi. You can patch in other Polk Omni speakers anywhere in the house or yard that is covered by your Wi-Fi and play from one source. The Omni S2s have integrated rubber isolation pads for horizontal or vertical placement, and Polk even included a white grill to interchange with the black grill depending on your décor. Of course, the best part about this little speaker is that unbelievable “Polk” sound. It produces a crystal-clear, silky-smooth, full range “3D – like” sound…with rich bass to bell-like high tones.

    I love having high quality sound in my home. (polk audio - Check) I love being able to have the songs come straight from my phone to my speakers wifi & not bluetooth technology is a huge win here because I hate running wires through the house... and bluetooth distance is severely limited. This is an awesome product that way. Legitimately... you could purchase one of these for each room in your home, and completely set them up and working without running any cables (except the power cables - the one thing I like less than running cables is buying batteries.) in less than an hour. It takes the professional home audio install professional out of the equation. I consider myself an audiophile... my headphones are molded to my ears and are in the 4 figures in cost... so when I think of home audio, I need to have flat out killer sound reproduction... and that's Polk.... but to now have the convenience of that audio to run through their app...without wires... too cool. If you're looking for a wireless solution to home audio, this is a great product.... Stereo makes a big difference in this area and the others speakers like this bypass this important attribute. And as with just about everything else they do, these look great too. So yeah, I guess you could say I recommend them...

    Permanent resident in the kitchen...and the garage

    ...and the bathroom...and the laundry room. Yeah, grabbed this along with the S2R and the sound bar setup. This speaker is actually a stereo pair in one little box. The sound that comes out of this thing is beyond impressive. It rattles dishes in the cabinets and will shake screws right off the work bench. It goes everywhere in the house. Just plug it in, connect it to your wireless network and play whatever you want through the app on your phone. Pandora follows me around all over the house. Until somebody doesn't like what I'm playing and they hijack it with their phone! Comes in handy when I want to listen to a game that is on the TV in the room with the sound bar. I just add this speaker to the list for that source and all of a sudden I'm listening to the Cowboys' game while making dinner! It's a stellar performer and is a total blast to have around. It's so unassuming too that company never knows where the sound is coming from.

    RAVING FAN OF THE POLK S2!

    Posted
    MusicalGenius

    I have a couple Sonos speakers and a Bose to compare with the Polk, and the S2 more than held it's own based on sound quality and then simply blew the competition away when I compared pricetags. I've had this speaker for about a month now. The sound quality of the S2 is AWESOME and easily fills a room with crisp and clear music with particularly impressive bass quality coming from such a small speaker. I also use it in the backyard when entertaining and it performs admirably. A great looking speaker with simplistic design - It comes with a black and white faceplate to swap out based on preference. The Polk app was easy to install on my phone and tablet, and is just as easy to operate. My 8 year old son asked me if he could set the app up on the tablet after I put it on my phone and he was able to do it without any help! Now he wants an S2 for his room. I think I see more of these in our future! Thanks Polk! I highly recommend this product.

    Awesome Speaker(s)

    I wanted to put some speakers around the house to play some music, have the ability to move music to my backyard/deck, and let me tell you, I am 100% satisfied with these. This is my first experience with wireless speakers (non-bluetooth) so I do not know any different from other brands like Sonos, or Samsung. I bought three speakers, followed directions and everything works perfect, took me less than 1 minute to install each speaker on my WLAN. Then the App asked if I wanted to update my speakers and that took about 5 minutes to download and install. I can control all speakers (volume, enable/control, off/on) with my smartphone/tablet using the Polk App. I used Windows Media Player (WMP) as a media Server and configured WMP to allow the Polk S2 to stream from my PC. Also, if my another user only wants to listen to music in the kitchen the user can "take control" of that speaker and play the users music in the Kitchen only. Good deal at $99.00. I liked them so much I bought an extra one just to have.
