    ooh, ooh, sign me up!

    Thanks for the sneak peek - I am obviously way beyond the skirts of the Gaussian distribution for the target demographic, though.

    I like those over the ear headphones. I wonder how they'd compare to my Sennheiser HD-595s? I too wish they would release some SDAs. Sigh.

    Interesting, but like the others, I was hoping it would be akin to the Klipsch Heritage Series...

    So, where will we see these new toys sold? I'd be interested in some demos.

    That was my thought too, but a nice looking set of products for a demo other than I.

    Ken-

    Any chance of overnighting some samples to Troy's for PolkFest? Maybe raffle off a pair for Mr. Grand's charity. Good PR never hurts. :)

    Hi Ken,
    People have to hear the Woodbourne to believe it. I'm hoping it gets into some local retailers soon so Polkies can get a taste of the latest in wireless audio performance.

    Somehow I was expecting a little more than headphones and portable speakers. Oh well, if this stuff suits you, rock it.

    Default Listening is Believing

    The Woodbourne is pure Polk - just not full size bookshelf or floor standing speakers. You have to hear it - I could go on about the custom drivers, the 4 amps, one for each woofer and tweeter, the MDF wood cabinet, etc. But you have to hear it. Really.

    Just Polk keeping up to date. That 15-30 something demographic is coming up "fast"! The only thing I wonder about is: Is Polk "cool" enough for the BEATS generation? That will be the "main" marketing problem here. And I do not think that it is a small one?

    Somehow, when you said "Polk bus", I was expecting something more along the lines of...

    ... or, maybe...

    The Woodbourne is pretty awesome. I've been rocking one at home for a couple of weeks. It is basically two bookshelf speakers put bottom to bottom. Internally it is two separate wood composite enclosure, with discrete amps. It does some really wonderful things to achieve great bass reproduction, you Woul

    Lots of specs here:

    As far as an LSiM sub, I agree ;-)
