Speaker Details & Features

Polk Audio announced that the I-Sonic entertainment system has been honored as the winner of the Best of Innovations award for the Audio Component category in the annual CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards program. Sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society (IDSA), the International CES Innovations Awards highlight product advancements in technology design and engineering.

The I-Sonic entertainment system is a compact, easy to use stereo, all-digital audio system that includes an AM/FM and digital HD Radio' tuner, a DVD/CD player and XM Satellite Radio capability. Exclusive 4-speaker I-Sonic and Power Port' technologies produce sound quality so big and lifelike that for many, the I-Sonic is capable of being the primary home entertainment system.

The Polk Audio I-Sonic entertainment system measures only 14.5" x 9.75" x 4.75", making it the perfect system to use on a kitchen countertop, on a nightstand, in a TV stand or on a coffee table. The I-Sonic' can be used in homes, offices and small businesses to deliver rich, room filling 360-degree stereo sound that rivals or betters that of much larger and costlier audio systems.

HD Radio is digital radio technology that offers static-free, crystal-clear reception with CD-quality sound from FM stations and the richness of FM-analog stereo sound quality from AM stations. HD Radio also allows the ability to multicast program streams over a single FM frequency (e.g. 97.7-1, 97.7-2, etc.) so that broadcasters can offer additional content to serve multiple audiences. A variety of data services that range from text-based information - artist name, weather alerts, school closings, traffic alerts, etc. - can be scrolled across the receiver display. In addition to receiving standard analog AM and FM broadcasts, the Polk Audio I-Sonic' entertainment system incorporates all the digital HD Radio features listed above. 2500 AM and FM stations nationwide have begun rolling out digital HD Radio technology.

Polk Audio's I-Sonic' entertainment system is also the first product of its type to incorporate a DVD player. When connected to a TV or monitor, it is a complete, compact, high performance audio/video entertainment system. The single disc DVD player plays DVD video discs, CDs, Picture CD, Video CD, MP3 CD and many other formats. It features S-Video and composite video outputs to facilitate hookup to video displays.

The I-Sonic' entertainment system becomes an XM Satellite Radio receiver with the addition of an XM Connect & Play Antenna and monthly subscription. XM Satellite Radio is the nation's leading satellite radio provider with over 5 million subscribers and provides listeners with 150 digital channels, including 100% commercial-free music, over 30 channels of news, sports, talk and entertainment, and over 20 dedicated channels of XM Instant Traffic. All XM metadata is displayed on the I-Sonic's front panel display, including full song title and artist name as well as information extras such as stock and sports score tickers.

The Polk Audio I-Sonic is simply the best sounding and most advanced compact home entertainment system. Powerful 4-speaker I-Sonic' technology delivers a rich, room-filling stereo soundstage 360º around the entertainment center. Listeners will enjoy a big-life-like stereo image wherever they are in the room. Patented Power Port venting technology belts out the kind of rich powerful bass you'd expect from much larger stereo speakers.

Two sets of auxiliary inputs allow hook up of any stereo audio device such as an iPod or other portable MP3 player or cassette deck. The I-Sonic' entertainment system is also a full function dual-alarm clock radio that can use the radio or DVD/CD player as the alarm. It also features a headphone jack for private listening at any hour, 30 radio presets and a wireless remote control. On-product controls and an on-display menu system allow the unit to be operated should the remote be lost or disabled.
