Polk Audio MagniFi Black Wireless Sound Bar System - MAGNIFI

Polk MagniFi Sound Bar™ with our patent pending Polk VoiceAdjust™ Technology is the first in our next generation of sound bar and wireless subwoofer systems designed for larger flat panel TVs. VoiceAdjust means that dialog is optimized with clear intelligibility of center channel program material, regardless of where you are sitting in the room. This also means you can hear the voices after hours while your neighbors don’t. VoiceAdjust Technology also enables you to control the center channel level as well. Like our other sound bar systems, the MagniFi Sound Bar offers the absolute easiest home theater solution, minus all of the home theater clutter and setup hassles. It is a minimalist design solution for anyone looking for a home theater system that can bring big, enveloping sound to all their TV and movie viewing.

Features:

  • VoiceAdjust Technology uses an adjustable three element line array with the center driver receiving the greater share of the bandwidth in order to provide clean clear, crisp dialogue whether you’re sitting directly in front of the TV or off to the side
  • Music and Movie Immersion Modes Digital Signal Processing creates dedicated music and movie modes to tailor the MagniFi Sound Bar for a more immersive listening experience
  • Polk’s exclusive Full Complement Bass Drive Technology in the bar improves lower midrange, upper bass tonal richness, fast transient response and overall output capability
  • Built-in Critically Tuned Ports provide optimum blending of mid-range and subwoofer
  • Bluetooth® Wireless Technology with aptX® delivers CD-quality sound from your smartphone, tablet or other compatible device
  • Near Field Communication (NFC) for the ease and convenience of simply touching your Bluetooth device to pair and connect
  • DJ Stream Compatible is the free Polk app that enables up to four connected devices to build and stream music through the MagniFi Sound Bar
  • SmartBar™ enables your sound bar to learn your TV’s original IR remote control. (Backup remote included.)
  • Compact wireless 7" Subwoofer eliminates the hassles and clutter of wires
  • Dolby Digital® Decoding, including Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0
  • Sound Bar / Subwoofer Time Alignment recognizes when subwoofer signals are transmitted wirelessly and takes measures to ensure that the sound bar’s and subwoofer’s acoustic output arrive coincidently (time-coherently) for optimal transients and seamless blending through the crossover range
  • Bass Control allows for adjustment to optimize subwoofer room position

I just paired this unit with my UHD tv. I shopped at length and did my research on the sound bar option compared to a traditional set up, of which I am more familiar. We placed the unit in our beach condo where space is a premium. My wife said no sub woofer and yet that changed when she saw the wireless unit. It has a cool Florida Art Deco design (my opinion) that makes it fit in so well. The voice enhancing speaker works as advertised. The sound is surprising. We were watching the SEC championship game today and it was amazing how the the sounds of the fans were brought into the room. I tested the Bluetooth with my iPhone and it paired immediately. There was a quality sound but don't expect a full on tower speaker sound. It will work well for background music and I would have to wear my headphones any way if I was going to play my music loud. Great design and sound Polk. Thanks from Delray Beach, Fl.

I have a Sony 55" TV and use the auxiliary connection (not the optical fiber cable) and the sound bar works great as long as the sound is at 10 or above on their sound scale. This means it works well for movies or sports events when the sound should be loud, however it does not work very well at normal levels for the news or watching regular TV shows. At these lower sound levels the sound stays on for 10-15 minutes then will suddenly turn itself off. It can be easily turned back on via the remote, however it's a real pain in the neck to have to keep turning it on multiple times per hour. I asked Polk customer service about the issue and they sent me a replacement sound bar (very nice of them), however it has the exact same issue as the first one, so I assume it is a design issue whereby the sound bar does not recognize the lower sound level as being "on", and it shuts itself off because it doesn't sense it is being used.

When it works it's great, however at this point I just don't turn it on to watch regular TV, as much as I would like to use it. Great looking product as well.

Powerful, compact soundbar/subwoofer system!

By 

from Fairhaven, MA

Have been looking for an ideal sound option for my living room flatscreen TV, but didn't want to have to take up a lot of space and run wires everywhere. Well, the Polk MagniFi system certainly fits the bill! The sleek, low-profile soundbar fits perfectly at the base of my flatscreen and provides a realistic stereo- and center-channel sound field while the wireless subwoofer can be tucked out of sight and still provide a punchy, deep bass presence. I love that you can adjust the center, stereo and sub channels independently to suit your taste and the added Bluetooth option allows you to play streaming music from your cellphone or tablet. This system exceeded my expectations and really delivers a serious bang for your buck!

Fantastic Option.

By 

from Owings Mills, MD, United States

I paired up my Magnifi to my TV using the optical input. The Sub is wireless and come synchronized. I do not use the bluetooth feature as I have a Bose SoundLink so this is strictly to make my Vizio not sounds like a tin can. The sound bar fills the room well and with the voice enhancement, I can watch Doctor Who or even Football and hear the dialog. An added bonus is that syncing the sound bar to my TV remote was beyond easy! There are 2 faults to this system. The first one is that on occasion (maybe once every 90 days) the sound bar will mute itself. I have found that counting to 3 and then turning up the volume brings it back. The second is that the volume adjustment is done by LED lights on the bar. There can be a huge variety in the volume which makes it hard to get the volume level right. Neither of these issues would deter my from getting another Polk product. If you are going to spend the money to enhance your TV sound, you have to go all the way and get the Polk.

Product is good - remote and manuel are bad

Pros

  • Very good voice enhancement

Cons

  • Remote and manuel

Best Uses

    Comments about Polk Audio MagniFi Black Wireless Sound Bar System:

    The voice enhancement works well. The overall music response sounds ok to me, although Consumer Reports did not give it a good rating.
    The mini remote is a joke. The enclosed set up manuel is totally incomplete and refers you online for the complete manuel. However, when you go on line, all that is available is the same inadequate set up info.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Service and delivery very good.

    Best Uses

    • Smaller Rooms

    Comments about Polk Audio MagniFi Black Wireless Sound Bar System:

    I received this through an open-box discount, so the pricing made it hard to pass up. It has a low profile and no obnoxious flashing lights or logos, which makes it discreet. I am an audio enthusiast, so I rate the sound quality as average. It is a bit lacking on the high-end of the frequency spectrum, which is a bit surprising because small enclosures don't impact that. So that criticism goes towards the components/design. I had to increase the "treble" level and decrease the "bass" to enhance the sound quality and reduce the muddiness in the vocal range. I think the sub is an essential item to fill out the full range, which is expected for such a small main-speaker enclosure. I like the Bluetooth sub, which makes it very easy to set up anywhere without having to deal with cables. I also like that the sub is down-firing, which increases it effectiveness through ground-coupling. However, I wish the downward-facing sub had some sort of grill, because it is completely vulnerable to dust and physical damage if you inadvertently go to move it. Another nice feature is the Bluetooth auxiliary input for playing music via phones, etc.

    All-around, I think it's a good product for its price-point and it fits my application. If you want/expect better sound quality, don't waste time with sound bars and invest your money on a full entertainment system. This offers decent quality in a compact design, for a reasonable price.

    Does the job for us older folk

    By 

    from NW Arkansas

    This is a great sound bar to pair with a 4K TV. The Polk Magnify 2.1 system reproduces TV/Movie dialog that can actually be understood. I've tried other 2.1 sound bar systems and they all have a rumbling bass that overpowers dialog. Us older folk have problems with some frequencies and this is the only 2.1 sound bar I've found that actually works for me. (There are some other decent products out there IF you can handle overpowering bass. I can't.) The most valuabe features of the Magnify 2.1 are the "center channel" and sub-woofer volume controls. Using both in conjunction with you TV's sound profiles allow you to find that "sweet spot" tha turns noise into dialog. Perhaps the neatest feature of this unit (other than turning gibberish into understandable dialog) is the ability to program the soundbar so it will respond to other remotes; original equipment, cable box remotes, etc. What keeps this from being a five star rating are: 1. Streaming audio from my iPhone is pretty good but has a tendency to sound a bit hollow and tinny. I was hoping for more and it could still happen as I mess with settings 2. Several reviewers mentioned how this product is slugish when switching from blue tooth mode back to optical stereo input mode. My experience, also. A bit annoying but certainly not a deal killer. These are merely observations: 1. The subwoofer was a bit much at first but after a day two you don't even notice it's there. 2. The sound bar remote has a noticeably limited range but is adequate when operating in front of a 4K TV. (Less than 10 feet) 3. Fine tuning Magnify to work in conjunction with your TV will take some trial and error but is well worth the effort. 4. I keep the sound bar and subwoofer on 24/7 to reduce the number of steps my wife has to take in order to enjoy her shows from Netflix. 5. Most sound bars are designed for younger people who can still hear well. Conclusion - this is THE 2.1 sound bar system for older folks with hearing problems.

    Great quality sound bar, and perfect addition the any TV setup. This made a huge difference in audio quality compared to the standard audio the Sony XBR-850C put out. Very easy to set up, and small to blend in with everything cleanly. Sub packs a punch as well. Love you can also tweak the audio for the bass, and voice so you can customize it for whatever your watching. Highly recommended for any setup!

        Was about to buy a Sony system but was advised to give the Polk system a listen before buying and i'm glad I did. I spoke with Chuck via phone and he met me in store to show me both systems. The Polk wayyy out performed anything I heard in that price range. I have it set up in my Chicago apartment and completely fills the living room with rich sound. The system is super easy to get up and running and was a perfect pairing to a new 4K TV.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Chuck who I spoke with via phone and then met me in store was fantastic. Helped bring me up to speed on sound bars and showed me several systems. Highest praise to Chuck.
