Amazon’s Polk Audio Command Alexa-enabled soundbar is down to $199. This deal matches its lowest price, one we saw the last time on the Black Friday and holiday sales. The soundbar usually sells for about $300, and it usually drops to around $250, even when sold.
In fact, the Polk Audio Command is a three-in-one system. First and foremost, it’s a soundbar+subwoofer combo. As such, it removes the crappy, integrated audio speakers on your TV, which will knock you away. The Polk Audio Command uses Dolby and DTS technologies to produce very good sound. Two 3-inch drivers and two1-inch tweeters are situated in the main soundbar and a 6.5-inch driver with 100 watts of the wireless subwoofer. With the standalone subwoofer, everything from movies to music is blasted with a noticeable thump, giving you better bass than the more expensive Sonos Beam.
Looking at the soundbar, you probably noticed the Echo Dot-like circle in the middle. It brings us to the second feature of the Command and it’s an Alexa speaker. Just like with any Amazon Echo, you can always talk to Alexa via the Polk Audio Command by saying “Alexa.” Want to see what the day’s weather will be like? Ask Alex. Do you have a smart thermostat and need to turn up the heat? Alexa, too, can do that. How tall is the Empire State Building? Alexa knows it. Whether you have other Alexa-powered speakers or this is your first, it’s a welcome touch to have Alexa built into the Polk Audio Command.
Finally, when you plug the Polk Audio Command into your TV, it also acts as an Amazon Fire TV Stick, giving you easy access to your favorite video and music apps. Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Disney+ and more can be watched. Spotify, iHeartRadio, and several other applications are available for you as well. All of your videos are shown in a crisp 4 K HDR to ensure that you have the best possible picture. There’s it — three devices in one. A mighty sound system, Alexa hands-free speaker and a Fire TV streamer.
