    Default Happy 40th Anniversary to Polk Audio

    This is a day for celebration. On June 22nd 1972, Polk Audio came to be. Forty years later they are still doing what they do best, making great speakers that folks can afford.

    Congratulations!!!

    I want to personally thank each and everyone at Polk Audio that throughout the years have made the music sound just a little bit better. What a great group of folks, thank you!

    I concur and I would like to also thank Helen and Kim and the rest of customer service for keeping it real when so many other companies have just crapped on the ones that made them successful
    KEEP IT UP FOLKS!!

    Even though I am a relative newb to audio, I can say that Polk's the one that got me hooked. I am also hugely grateful for this forum as you all have helped me along the way.

    Congratulations on a great run. Having seen the originals and the latest, I must say how amazing it is to have witnessed the evolution.

    Cool....

    Got my second set of SDA SRS2's just today.

    I wouldn't mind having one of every model they ever made and hooked up too. I've given it a run but fell way short but still, the models I've owned and still do, Polk has had some great speakers for the money for sure. Thanks POLK Audio and it's employees for keeping it a moraly proud company to date.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    A business doesn't last that long unless they are doing something right. Congratulations! I will toast a beer or three tonight in celebration.

    Thank you Polk Audio for all your speakers, but particularly the SDA's! Amazing speakers with a soundstage that no other speaker (that I've heard) can touch. I listened to this one a couple days ago on my wonderful 2.3TL's. Happy Anniversary to all the great folks past and current at Polk!

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:

    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion."
