If you have ears, listen up: A soundbar is the single best upgrade you can buy for your TV room, and right now one of the best soundbars on the market is on sale for a historic-low price. Grab the Polk MagniFi Max AX SR and you'll enjoy clear dialogue, incredible surround sound and enough bass to make the neighbors jealous. (Or angry. Maybe reconsider that midnight showing of All Quiet on the Western Front? Nothing quiet about that movie.)
The MagniFi Max AX SR (which I'll hereafter refer to as just "the MagniFi") was recently featured in my roundup of the best soundbars of 2023; it's the one I selected as the best surround soundbar, which it absolutely is.
This beast of a system packs 11 speakers into the soundbar alone, but comes with wireless satellite speakers and a wireless subwoofer as well. It plugs into your TV's HDMI ARC port, though it's also a Wi-Fi speaker system compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple AirPlay and Google Home. This initial setup is easy, thanks to an included quick-start guide, but you may need to venture online to figure out the various modes and features provided by the remote.
Speaking of features, there are two standouts. First, Polk's VoiceAdjust boosts dialogue so you can actually hear what's being said, and there are multiple levels so you can tweak it to best suit your hearing.
Second, the MagniFi supports Dolby Atmos, so if you're watching a movie or TV show that supports it as well, prepare for sound that positively envelops you. That's thanks to the up-firing speakers built into the soundbar and the satellites. Of course, even lowly 5.1-surround content sounds amazing on this thing; Atmos just takes it to the next level.
I also appreciate that the MagniFi doesn't require yet another app to learn or account you have to register for. (Thank you, Polk!) Once you weave it into your existing Amazon, Apple or Google ecosystem, you're done.
This system sold for $799 when I first received it for testing, but shortly thereafter the price jumped to $899. This deal represents the lowest price on record, making it one of the best soundbar buys of 2023. If you want to seriously upgrade your TV room (we're talking theater-level audio), grab this quick.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
