Polk Command Bar review: A fantastic sound bar that happens to have Alexa
At a press conference last month, renowned home audio brand Sonos made a big deal out of how its sound bar with built-in Alexa is going to change smart speakers and sound bars forever. But weeks before Sonos launched the Beam, a smaller audio company named Polk scooped it with an Alexa-powered sound bar of its own.
It's called the Polk Command Bar, and we've been living with it for the last few weeks. It's an undeniably Echo-inspired sound bar, with the signature blue LED ring from an Echo in the middle of the sound bar, surrounding the controls. At heart, it's much like other mid-range sound bars, with good sound, a wirelessly connected subwoofer, and a pair of HDMI inputs. There's also a slot behind the bar for one of Amazon's Fire TV dongles, although it won't fit some of the newer Fire TV hardware.
