A listening experience bigger than any desktop
The range of music available from today's smartphones, tablets and computers, as well as online music services, offers an endless supply to explore and enjoy. Because of all these digital sources, we designed the Hampden's USB input to bypass the lower quality digital-to-analog converter built into most computers. A higher quality converter in the Polk Hampden optimizes this critical function for the best audio possible.
- 4-channel Amplifier
- Each driver and tweeter is driven by its own dedicated amplifier for greater dynamic range and clarity.
- By eliminating passive crossover components, we reduce the distortion, phase shift and other undesirable by-products inherent in such systems.
- Digital Signal Processor (DSP) smooths frequency response and creates greater bass extension.
- The latest advances in Bluetooth wireless technology with apt-X® to ensure the music on your smartphone or tablet, and other compatible devices, is delivered at near-CD sound quality.
- Polk's exclusive DJ Stream App enables up to 4 mobile devices to seamlessly build a playlist from songs on mobile devices.
- Polk Hampden loudspeakers use a 1" soft-dome silk/polymer tweeter and a robust 4-1/2" mid-woofer with stiff, lightweight composite polypropylene cones.
- Driver and tweeter are housed in a bass-reflex teak veneer enclosure with downward-firing port. This combination of drivers and enclosure creates a rich, warm sound much like a pair of bookshelf loudspeakers.
- The "laid back" angle aide sends all the sound to your ears.
