    I don't mind the new logo in the pic Jake posted above. And I kinda like the logo Steve posted. At first I thought Steve meant they put that stupid looking heart in the circle on it. But then again whatever logo they use...don't really matter to me. Hell I have not even graduated to SDA's yet. Much less LSiM's. lol

    I always liked this one the best. Simple and clean, without the hearts all over it.

    If they ever come out with a new version of SDA's they should give Larry the honor of creating the new Polk Audio Badge.

    Yep, I like that one, and the vintage one with the heart the best.

    The new logo does suck.

    +1 You guys are definitely on the right track here. Using the color red for the product name polk, immediately grabs the customer's attention and once again you're associating red with power. No doubt, black looks damn good with red too, very classy!

    That heart in front of 'Polk' definitely makes it look like the company is trying to appeal to the younger crowd - 5-10-yr-olds...

    The inmates are TRYING to run things and Polk is wisely ignoring.

    Wisely ignoring their customers thoughts, concerns and ideas....gotcha.

    Personally as long as the heart thingy is left out, I like the logo. Very modern and sleek looking imo.

    Everything changes with time. Here are a few other examples of brands that evolved over the years.

    Since 1972 Polk has had 3 marks.
    http://www.polkaudio.com/about-polk

    The current iteration pays homage to the original with the inclusion of the heart (which people complained about when it was dropped in the second iteration). It is also clean and modern and scales nicely to feel appropriate on every type of audio product from an in ear headphone to a tower in any application, from a pad print to an emboss. For example steveinaz's concept would not scale down to a headphone, or even a metal logo badge on a tower because of the amount of detail and the thinness of the elements. The inclusion of a color as a critical graphical element conflicts when used on a headphone hat is a clashing color or even on a bookshelf or tower if the particular veneer does not link up. Notice the heart is only used in marketing materials and not used.

    Here is the new logo on just about every type of product Polk makes:
    TSx 550t: http://www.polkaudio.com/products/tsx550t
    TSx 220b: http://www.polkaudio.com/products/tsx220b

    Couldn't agree more HTguru, the Emblem from the era of the RTi's/certain Monitors/Lsi's etc looked leagues more professional... not like something I'd throw in my niece's bedroom to go with the decor Love the company, love it's products, not it's newer heart logo. To each their own I guess :P and after reading, if it's to pay tribute to the original, it makes a little more sense I guess....

    For all of us complaining about the "new" logo(myself included), it would be helpful to be reminded that the logo is very similar to one found on one of Polk's earliest speaker: http://www.soundadviceblog.com/featu...more-maryland/

    Indeed that was one of the inspiration points! Also of note, the logo application on products is not plastic. In most cases it is a diamond cut metal with plated finish, as on the Woodbourne.
