LEGENDARY SOUND

COLLECTOR’S EDITION OF AN AWARD-WINNING ICON

Integrating acoustic innovations found in our flagship Legend Series, the original R200 earned The Absolute Sound’s 2021 Bookshelf Loudspeaker of the Year and 2022 Editor’s Choice accolades; the Reserve Series is Sound & Vision’s Top Pick of 2022 and has earned countless 5-star reviews from Polk fans around the world.

A Modern Classic

SIGNATURE CHERRY WOOD FINISH AND REFINED COMPONENTS

This special-edition speaker embodies all the innovations that make the R200 a Polk classic, with distinctive touches worthy of a rare collectible—from its authentic oiled cherry wood veneer to upgraded crossovers and premium 24K gold-plated five-way binding posts.

Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter

High-Resolution Sound Wherever You Sit

The Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter’s unique waveguide provides broader high-frequency dispersion for a room-spanning sweet spot. With sound reproduction beyond 40kHz and ultra-fast and accurate transients, with the R200AE, you’ll enjoy crisp clarity and detail wherever you’re seated.

Turbine Cone Woofer

Multidimensional Midrange and Bass

Relentless prototyping and refinement resulted in the striking Turbine Cone Woofer’s unique ridged design. Its ultra-light, yet ultra-rigid cone provides sound reproduction with increased power, accuracy, and speed. You’ll hear breathtaking midrange, detailed bass, and a wide dynamic range in everything you listen to.

PATENTED X-PORT

Hear Pure, Unmasked Sound

Traditional ported speaker designs increase low- frequency performance, but often mask midrange details due to port resonances. Polk's proprietary X-Port uses specially tuned eigentone filters to cancel out unwanted resonances. With X-Port you get the best of both worlds: tight, distortion-free bass and a superbly detailed midrange.

Anti-Resonant Cabinets and Anti-Diffraction Grilles

Acoustically Optimized Inside and Out

R200AE’s acoustically transparent, magnetic grilles offer a clean look without interfering with sonic performance. Behind the grilles is a world of audio innovation. These rigid, acoustically inert cabinets have been carefully cross-braced and optimized through laser Doppler vibrometry to eliminate unwanted interior resonances.
