2.1-channel System with Chromecast Built-in

Polk Audio today released the Signa S3, a 2.1-channel sound bar system which includes a wireless subwoofer. The thin speaker bar boasts four performance-tuned drivers in a system less than 2-inches tall and 35-inches wide. It easily connects with all the latest HD, 4K and 8K TVs and decodes Dolby Digital 5.1 content for lifelike home theater sound with a single HDMI ARC connection.

Polk Audio Signa S3 Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer

Affordably priced at $249, the Signa S3 replaces the identical looking Signa S2 sound bar, which is now being discounted. The new Signa S3 adds support for 8K TVs and Wi-Fi for Chromecast music streaming or voice commands through Google Assistant. Sound quality should be exactly the same, so if you won’t miss the new features just go with Signa S2 for $199 at Amazon.

The addition of Chromecast for Audio gives users the ability to play content from Google Play Music, Amazon Music HD, Spotify, Tidal, Roon, Qobuz, and more. The Signa S3 also works with Google Assistant, making it simple to queue up and play music with voice commands using a separate Google Home device and the Google Home app. The Signa S3 can also be grouped with other Chromecast-enabled speakers to play music throughout the home for parties or everyday listening.

The Signa S2 and S3 include Polk Audio’s patented Voice Adjust technology, which enables listeners to specifically adjust voice channel levels when watching movies, TV shows or sporting events to never miss a word of dialogue. For ease of operation, the sound bar automatically works with TV remotes from Samsung, LG, Vizio, TCL and Sony (as well as most CEC enabled TVs) to control volume. With three preset DSP modes, “Movie,” “Music” and “Night Mode” users can easily optimize the output of the sound bar and subwoofer to ensure clarity and detail regardless of the source.

Both sound bars also comes with HDMI and optical cables, which makes hookup easy. Although you’ll likely only need to use the HDMI cable.

“If you’re in the market for a straightforward, but dramatic boost to your home theater system, the Signa S3 covers all the bases. It sounds huge, works with virtually any TV and TV brand, decodes Dolby Digital for great virtual surround sound and has Chromecast to easily stream your favorite music into your living room.”Michael McCole, senior product marketing manager for sound bars at Polk Audio
