Yeah, when I saw another post on this, the first thing that came to mind is "Here comes Directed Electronics..."
Difficult to ignore market demand.
Still trying to figure out how to conclude its a prank.
I hope it does well.
Only saw this yesterday when the forums were down and I went directly to the polk site to see if it was down as well.
Hmmm it's at an interesting price point. It costs more than the games and more than what I paid for my entire guitar hero WT setup. A bit price I'd say.
Hopefully it finds it place.
Hey, following market demand and looking for new product ideas drives funding for future LSi development!
It looks like they are at least trying to maintain a quality Polk image with the product. I just play GH through my HT system and crank it up man!
I sure do like it, I may buy it just because i like the way it looks!
And if it does not sound good I will ripp off that polk logo and use it as a pendant on my necklace!!!
I give Polk credit for thinking outside the box and creating a product for a market that is definitely high in demand. First at it so how long till Bose mimics it? lol I'd like to hear how it sounds but for $100 and the -10db response doesn't hold my expectations high. Oh well, I still think it's a great idea.
I want to like it since it's a Polk product, but I had to be honest with myself - if it was Bose or jbl or someone else offering this I'd be laughing my ass off and would be critical of the whole thing.
Again, this product just screams out Directed Electronics
Hey, be thankful your company of whose forum you participate in daily is still thriving and ensuring they stay competitive within the marketplace. If you read the industry rags you'll notice other audio related companies not doing as well.
I think this is a great idea!
I've played Guitar Hero at a lot of friends houses through TV speakers, and it's nowhere near as fun as on a good system.
I'm guessing that this will end up selling pretty well.
Maybe Polk can get together with some of the game companies and make a bundle with Rockband/Guitar Hero. I bet it would sell pretty well over the holiday season.
I like the old school logo. Reminds me of the REAL early ****...
I'm sure it's going to be spot on for what they want it to do. They do usually do it right....
That's actually pretty cool. Looks neat, and assuming it sounds good at all (HAS to sound better than TV speakers), it'd create a real nice effect for GH!
