Unveiled the first Dolby Atmos speakers. The Signa S4 has seven drivers (including two upstream drivers) geared toward delivering 3D sound for movies, TV, music and games. Wireless subwoofer included.
The company says that if the content is not set up for, the amplifier can create a “virtual Atmos experience” by mixing height, perimeter and center channels. In addition, the Signa S4 harnesses Polk’s VoiceAdjust technology, which aims to make dialogue clearer during noisy scenes and when watching something at a lower volume.
You can place the subwoofer anywhere in the room, as long as it is within 33 feet of the speaker. The two devices will be paired automatically. The bass tuning feature will adjust the low settings on both the speakers and the subwoofer. There are one-button presets designed to play movies and music. There’s also a night mode that lowers the bass and puts more emphasis on the dialogue.
You can connect the Signa S4 to your TV via HDMI, an optical cable, or even an aux-in. The device should be compatible with most TV remote controls, and Bluetooth support is also available.
The speaker is available starting today from Polk’s website and other retailers. The Signa S4 package, which includes HDMI and optical cables, costs $399.
