    The Polk Command Sound Bar has many great features and we love it. We were able to hang our TV on the wall with NO wires and the theater quality sound fills up the room. I'm able to use voice commands with the built-in Alexa making it easy to switch channels, listen to music or simply turn up the volume. We were also able to connect our other bluetooth devices. This is a must-have!

    Bought this for my 60 yo parents so they could simply ask Alexa to play music and have better sound for their TV. They absolutely love it and it works great

    I was looking to add Alexa to my living room and replace my Boston Acoustics xs 2.1 Digital Cinema, and I already had the Polk MagnaFi soundbar in my basement, so Polk was an easy choice. Setup was super easy, download the Polk app and it pretty much walks you through it. I was worried the sound would not be up to par with the Boston system since it had a smaller sub, but I was happy to find out that was not the case. If you can setup an Echo, you can setup this soundbar. I like the different sound modes (music/sports/movie) and the bluetooth sub connection makes placement easy. This has a wider sound and deeper center stage than the MagnaFi so it will work better for larger rooms.

    If you have everything ready to go, this takes no longer than 20 minutes to set up. We connected it to our LED TV and was up and running in time to watch football. Super rich sound and the Alexa controls were very responsive. You can use your own TV remote, the included Polk remote, voice command, or buttons on the bar to change volume, and with various settings for voice clarity, music mode, movie mode, and sports, it's easy to change between media types. We really like how good this system sounds, and that you can turn it to "night" mode to play at lower volumes -- such as when the kids are in bed -- and not lose clarity. Be sure you have a second power outlet for the subwoofer! Would recommend this to anyone looking for high-quality sound and integrated Alexa controls.

    I am no huge audiophile and only began using a sound bar a couple of years ago however, the Polk Command Bar delivers great sound and access to Alexa thanks to the embedded Amazon Echo Dot. Even my wife, who admittedly does not notice the difference between HD and 4K has noticed the improved sound. This is a great addition to a simple home theater setup and I use this with both our Samsung 4K UHD TV and our Xbox One S console.

    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.

    Very simple to connect and everything is working very well. I have my Cable box and XBox connected to the soundbar (HDMI cables) and then soundbar connected to TV (HDMI cable). Alexa hears very well. I did not give 5 starts because Alexa does not have all features such as setting timers and reminders.
