US Hi-Fi specialist Polk Audio has expanded its soundbar offering in the UK with the Signa S3. Retailing for £279, this 2.1 system features four performance-tuned drivers and is partnered with a wireless subwoofer. It leads the low cost Signa Solo (£149) and Signa S2 (£199) in the Polk line-up.

The slimline Wi-Fi-enabled bar is just 5.5cm tall and 90cm wide, making it suitable for screens up to 55-inches. Power output is rated at 160W total, split equally between the bar and sub.

In addition to HDMI ARC and Bluetooth streaming connectivity, it has Chromecast built-in, which gives users the ability to play content from Google Play Music, Amazon Music HD, Spotify, Tidal, Roon, Qobuz, and more. The Signa S3 also works with Google Assistant, making it simple to queue up and play music with voice commands using a separate Google Home device or the Google Home app. The Signa S3 can be grouped with other Chromecast-enabled speakers for whole home, multiroom listening.

Ease of use and value are key attractions, says Michael McCole, senior product marketing manager for sound bars at Polk. “If you’re in the market for a straightforward, but dramatic boost to your home theater system, the Signa S3 covers all the bases. It sounds huge, works with virtually any TV and TV brand, decodes Dolby Digital for great virtual surround sound and has Chromecast to easily stream your favorite music into your living room,” he says.

The Signa S3 sports three preset DSP modes, Movie, Music and Night Mode, as well as Polk Audio’s own Voice Adjust technology, which boosts dialogue levels when watching movies, TV shows or sporting events.
