    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.

    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.

    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.

    Purchased this sound bar system days before Christmas. I wanted to improve the sound in the mancave for the holidays. Awesome sound for the price and built in Alexa is great addition. Installation instructions were easy to follow. Had sound bar installed and was enjoying benefits of great sound within 20 minutes.

    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.

    Comes with a wireless subwoofer & Amazon Alexa

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
