    After a huge debate between purchasing a soundbar and an Amazon Echo, I found this and instantly fell in love. It had everything I wanted all wrapped up in one beautiful device, and it's worth every penny. The sound is great, Alexa can hear me anywhere in my apartment, it looks awesome, and it works perfectly for all my entertainment needs. I absolutely love it.

    This is one high-quality product with a sleek, stylish design that looks great next to our main television in the living room. My favorite thing about the Polk Command Sound Bar is how Alexa is integrated into it. The audio quality is top-notch - I truly felt like I was surrounded by the sound! I have a newborn baby, and he's been enjoying listening to Mozart baby classical songs. It was too inconvenient to try to play audio through my television while I was juggling baby care, but now that I have this sound bar set up, it's amazingly easy to just tell Alexa to turn on the classical music.

    Needed better sound for my flat panel TV. Polk speakers always sound great and they look great with my TV.

    The Polk Command Bar took us only about ten minutes to set up. It comes in a pretty neat box too! You'll love the sleek, stylish design of the product too! It fits perfectly below our 65" television. I love that it has Amazon Alexa already built-in but it's also compatible with our Fire Stick and PS4 which is perfect. With the command bar there's no need to have an Amazon Echo or Dot in every room because the sound of the command bar is so clear. You can easily control the volume with your voice which is perfect if there's a lot of background noise which tends to happen a lot at my house. Alexa will be able to hear you easily!

    I'm loving the Polk Command Bar. It' makes watching movies so much better with the theater-quality sound it brings to your living room from the soundbar and subwoofer together. The design is sleek which makes it easy to fit anywhere. And with Amazon Alexa built in I can control my electronics from adjusting the volume, listening to my music and more. Definitely the best product out there.

    I think the biggest thing that separates this sound bar from the others is that it comes with a free wireless subwoofer! You can't really beat that. I love it's sleek design, was super easy to set up and the ports on the back make hook up super simple. I love that it comes with Amazon Alexa built-in so I can control play, pause, and volume with my voice. Not to mention you can control, monitor and schedule additional home electronics using your voice. Can't beat the price either!

    Life just got a lot sweeter with the Polk Command Sound Bar featuring Amazon Alexa built-in. Yes, built-in! No more searching for that lost remote. @@@@@@@@ which was the story of my life) The modern convenience of Amazon Alexa allows your voice commands to run the show. Polk Command Sound Bar has given our family a new outlook on technology. It has changed the way we interact with our TV, listen to music, and search for information. For example, it makes tasks like switching from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2 so easy with a simple voice command. Before the Polk Command Sound Bar, we had to switch one cable between 2 HDMI inputs to use our Roku or digital converter. The Polk Command Sound Bar is easy to set up and use. We are thrilled with ours.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
