The Polk React is a compact, Alexa-compatible soundbar with audio support for Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 virtual surround sound. If you’re not interested in the whizz-bang immersiveness of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X and want a simplified TV viewing experience, then that’s where the React comes in.

With Alexa built in, users can adjust the volume, bass levels or ask Alexa a question (maybe even order a pizza) from the comfort of their own sofa. And if you have other Alexa devices around the home, the soundbar can act as a controller, switching products on/off or sending music to other speakers in the home.

With the Alexa Communications feature you can call other people’s phones or other Alexa devices at no extra cost. Support for Alexa Multi-Room Music ensures that if you already have multiple Alexa-speakers dotted around the house, you can group them together or fire different music at each one. That would make the React a good option for parties and gatherings.

With Polk Audio’s Voice Adjust technology, you can tweak voice levels and make dialogue clearer, while “Night Mode” reduces the impact of the bass if you don’t want to disturb anyone late at night.

And there’s an upgrade path available if you decided at a later date to add more speakers. There’s a wireless subwoofer to beef up the bass performance, and you can add the SR2 wireless rear speakers to create a 5.1 surround system.
