    Have you guys seen the new front page for Polk? Looks great, however, scrolling down to see it was kinda annoying...
    Otherwise good stuff!

    Looks like they're advertising a Bose radio.

    What's wrong with Bose? I love Bose and Monster;).

    I like the page. It's cool to see Matt on the Polk site. He's been there since the beginning. Remember the pic of him sitting on subwoofers from back in the days?

    I don't want to get started down the discussion path of Polk branching out into too many fields and losing focus on speakers...that's a worthless discussion because none of us knows what's gonna happen five years from now...maybe they can branch out and still maintain their quelity in speakers.

    Having said that, I took the first line of the description for the I Sonic thingy:
    Polk Audio's I-Sonic™ entertainment system with exclusive I-Sonic and Power Port technologies produces sound quality so big and lifelike that it is capable of being your primary home entertainment system.
    and replaced a couple words:
    Bose Wave Radio entertainment system with exclusive Wave Sound technologies produces sound quality so big and lifelike that it is capable of being your primary home entertainment system.
    WAAAAAAAA!!!:D
    I'm sure that'll piss some people off, but I don't really mean anything by it...just that when I first read that description I felt like I was reading a Bose ad...not that this is necessarily a bad thing - look at how much crap Bose has sold over the years. If Polk can get in on that action while offering a better product, then more power to you...

    We are evolving from being a speaker-only company to an audio company. New technologies have blurred the distinction between speaker companies and electronics companies. Speaker companies have been building powered products for some time. The electronics companies are making HTiB systems with speakers as part of the package. Digital technologies now allow speaker manufacturers to do really innovative designs to deliver better sound and convenience. Case in point is the IP addressable self powered LCi speakers coming from Polk later this year. http://www.polkaudio.com/home/partne...ease.php?id=45

    We had to bring in electronics & digital engineers and expertise some time ago to answer the needs of the brave new powered world. So it shouldn't come as a big surprise that we are tapping those resources to address consumers' audio needs beyond high performance speakers.

    The first departure for us was the XRt12 XM reference tuner that has been a great success both in terms of its robust sales and critical acclaim. The "table radio" category was an obvious one for us to tackle next – several companies are selling boatloads of those things. As hard as it may be for audiophiles like us to imagine it, not everyone has or even wants a component audio system. For the vast majority of Americans a table-top radio/CD player or boombox is all the audio gear they'll ever put into their homes. Why shouldn’t Polk address that market? Don’t those people deserve the best sounding product of that type? Would you rather have your Mom listen to a Bose in her kitchen or a Polk?

    What tipped us over the edge to get into this category was the advent of HD Radio. If you are not familiar with HD Radio it is the new digital terrestrial radio transmission that has the potential to deliver up to CD-quality sound on FM broadcasts and FM stereo-like sound on AM. It also supports multi-casting and text meta data. When we heard a demo we said "Wow, now we can make a radio that actually has high fidelity performance." One thing led to another and we wound up conceiving the world's first all-digital compact entertainment system – the I-Sonic.

    Take a look at the information page for that product and you'll see that we are aiming high. It is not just a "radio." It features HD radio, it is XM satellite radio ready and it has a DVD player. It is also the most expensive product of its category. And I'd hope you guys have faith that we are making it the best sounding product in its class.

    I am willing to place bets that many of you are going to buy an I-Sonic when it comes out. To replace your component audio system? No way. But if you are anything like me there is always some place in your house where it would be great to have a convenient, small and good sounding audio system. For me it is the bedroom where I currently have a clock radio, a Tivoli table radio and a 27" TV and they are not connected to each other. All I gotta do is hook up the I-Sonic to my TV and boom, I have everything I need in the bedroom (A/V wise at least). No crude jokes…

    So what does all this mean for our speaker business? No change. As excited as we are about new categories we understand what our core customers want from us – speakers. That's what pays the bills around here and we're not about to let that slide. Different groups of people work on different products so we can develop new speaker products and electronics products at the same time. In fact this year we will bring out three innovative built-in subwoofers with digital amplification, the aforementioned and groundbreaking IP addressable speakers, a new floorstanding model in the RM Series and a new high end component car speaker system that blows away the competition. Hey guess what? We really are capable of walking and chewing gum at the same time.

    As for the new homepage – we intend to change that page often and rotate featured products. Think of that as the cover of a magazine with something new and different on the cover of every issue. The I-Sonic is new, it is different, it is cool and it deserves the spotlight (for now). As for the tone of my ad copy text (yeah I wrote it) and any passing similarity to any other brand's copy, you could do the same trick with any other product's copy. For example, I just pulled this off of Infinity's web site:

    "The Infinity Beta™10 bookshelf speaker is magnetically shielded and available in black and cherry finishes. Infinity's patented Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm™ (CMMD™) technology delivers accurate performance with dramatically reduced distortion for incredibly lifelike sound."

    Now let's Polkize it:
    Polk Audio LSi7 bookshelf speaker is magnetically shielded and available in black and cherry finishes. Polk's patented Power Port technology delivers accurate performance with dramatically reduced distortion for incredibly lifelike sound.

    What have I proved? That ad copy of similar products sounds sort of similar. You can start worrying about us when our products start sounding like Bose, not when we share a couple of descriptive phrases.

    Matt looks like a Muppet? I'll let him know you feel that way. What's your home address again?

    Like I said...I didn't really mean anything by changing a few words on the ad...just found it mildly amusing.

    I know it's marketing...I just typically tend to laugh at everything that is marketing...just because I can...

    I wasn't trying to compare Polk and Bose on a quality level...we all know there's no comparison there. Polk and Bose both still make the satellite speaker systems and probably market them the same way...but Polk makes a superior product there as well. In fact, I think the last statement in my first post indicates that I'm making no comparison, and that I expect this product to be better than what's already out there...

    Wow, you people really jump to extremes!

    Listen to Paul, he's a pretty important guy at Polk Audio and knows what's going on. Be glad that he is willing to hang out and shoot the breeze and let you in on some things that are coming down the line.

    As far as product from Polk Audio goes, we don't get to dictate that. The only way you can vote is to either buy it or don't buy it. You can make suggestions that Polk Audio defintly listens to and takes seriously but at the end of the day, the future of the company is what is important and they need to look at the big picture, not just the Club Polk corner of it.

    Personally, I'd like to see someone with a marketing and distribution infrastructure like Polk Audio take on the Bose-like companies of the market. There are a few out there that have similar products to the Bose stuff but nothing that really steps ahead of it. If anyone takes enough pride in thier product to build something that will go for the jugular and compete directly with the Bose stuff, it's Polk Audio. As long as I can remember, they have been doing it better for less and giving you a hell of alot of product in the process. Some products have missed but way more have been hit way out of the park.

    The biggest fear that I have is that the brand gets watered down. Like Paul said speakers are the bread and butter and it would be marketplace suicide to go from a speaker line that has gotten gushing reviews to mass-market junk. If Polk Audio built thier name on speakers then they need to maintain that reputation and improve upon it. Do that and the name alone will sell damn near any other product they put on the shelf.

    Polk Audio is not going the way of Bose or other big names that have been rendered impotent by massive Asian conglomerates. Companies that are heading in that direction don't release products like SR6500 automotive component system or HTIB systems that rival the main speaker lines of other companies. This is not the behavior of a company aiming for the lowest common denominator and maximizing profits. It is very good to see Polk Audio releasing products like the new I-Sonic and the XRt12 because it provides a segway for people who might not consider buying the more expensive products to experience what Polk Audio really brings to the table. It will not only open the doors to new customer but provides added value to existing customers who might be looking for such a product but not finding something they would want to plunk thier money down on.

    The thing about this other products is that they provide revenue for development of ideas like IP addressable self powered LCi speakers. That is an extremely useful technology that saves money in installation costs and provides a true, high-end solution with pretty much groundbreaking technology that is, for the most part, unavailable aside from a few professional sound level companies. I'm excited to see the future of Polk Audio and it is good to see that people who still take pride in what they do and who they are are still running the company with a level of integrity that is rare in today's world.

    As the world gets bigger and more and more people come into available funding, things like audio become a commodity hobby and it will be companies like Polk Audio that have the foresight to see the bigger picture, the resources to develop the solutions to the demands of the population in that bigger picture and the integrity to follow through on bring those ideas to market and sticking to a low-cost, high-value plan. They are positioning themselves to be lean and mean to use some corporate buzzwords and that makes them dynamic. They can respond to market trends quicker and they can offer a high quality product with mass-market pricing. In the growing world market, this is where high-end audio is heading and companies that cannot adapat quick enough will be left behind. There will always be the boutique companies with noses stuck high in the air. There will also be the high end installers catering to people with more money than brains. However, without companies like Polk Audio that offer a high quality product in several levels of teh market place, those high shops and companies will flounder. They will not have the customer base that a company like Polk Audio brings into the market by enticing with that product that is just a tad better than the competition at a price the competition can't match for that level of quality. Polk Audio is basically going for the entry level of the market with products that are head and shoulders above the entry level competition. Hell, they are even compared with what most people would consider high-end gear and they are being chosen over the high end gear. They gotta be doing something right if that's happening. The high end gear is great stuff in any respect and if you product can beat that we'll it's pretty special.

    Bravo, Polk Audio, keep up the great work and if you ever forget who you are or where you came from, just stop by the Club Polk forums. We'll faithfully remind you of what made you so great and give you the lashings you deserve if you step out of line. You've been honest with us, we owe it to you to be honest with you.

    It sure sounded like people were having some angst about a "table radio" (GASP!) showing up on our home page. I just figure you guys deserve a full explanation of what we're doing and why. It is one reason why the forum exists, so that we can talk to and understand each other.

    Matt really likes Muppets. Ernie is his favorite. Many years ago we used to have stand up full size Matthew Polks for store displays. As you can imagine we had some fun with that. We used to have one in the sales department and dress it up in various clothes and paste on different faces. One time we put a Batman mask on it. That one made people double over in laughter. Now a lesser man with no sense of humor would have been offended by that sort of hijinx but Matt took it all in stride and laughed along with the rest of us. That is one of the hundreds of reasons why this is a great place to work.

    With the exception of maybe a post or two, I don't see anyone jumping to extremes. I think that making a generalized statement like 'you people are jumping to extremes' is jumping to extremes...:D

    Polk owners are like Harley riders, they're loyal. They get a little nervous when you break ranks and try something different. The fear that Polk's "focus" will change makes it a hot topic with audiophiles.

    I, for one, greatly appreciate the fact that "Polk"Paul cares enough about what we think to take the time to browse the forum and offer his input. That's one of the great things about Polk Audio and about this forum. After all, we're just enthusiasts. "The market" extends beyond us, substantially.

    I personally could care less about the "table radio", but I see no harm in it as long as it doesn't detract from Polk's focus on speakers. And I think the new home page is fine. I've seen the Polk home page, maybe 4-5 times in the last couple of years. :)

    Polk "Paul" commented upon one of my threads I do feel honored :)

    I'm recalling some world history, forgot the timeframe or people involved, something about the Jewish mothers killing their children so they wouldn't be converted to Christianity... I don't know where I was going with that one, but yeah, it's that big of a difference, I wouldn't want my Mom to "convert" to Bose...

    Anyways... I think this is a great new direction honestly, because I have more friends who like the small clock radio thing, and this would be a great way to feed that appitite.

    I know I didn't make any sense.

    I understand you. It is refreshing to see someone refer to history pre-1900. Most audiophiles think the world began when Edison invented the phonograph. Some think it was the invention of the first tube amp. It wasn't eating the apple that got adam and eve kicked out of eden - it was listeing to a solid state amp.

    I think you are referring to the Inquisition days - 13th and 14th centuries.

    Any puppet from Sesame Street, The Muppet Show (and various movies), Fraggle Rock and several feature length movies like Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal and others are a product of Jim Henson productions. Jim Henson Productions runs the Muppet Factory which is where the puppets and such for every production that Jim Henson Productions are involved in are made. That means that they are all Muppets by default.

    Yes, Ernie is a Muppet just as Bert, Big Bird, Elmo, Cookie Monster, Snuffalupagus, Oscar and all the rest are also muppets.
