HKA2's picture

"While it doesn’t do the near impossible and convince you there’s actually sound coming from behind you, the SB9000 does create an exceptionally wide, dynamic soundstage that fills the entire front wall and often reaches part way down the sides of the room."

Just a point of information: 5.1-channel surround was never intended to put sound behind the listener. Almost all speaker placement recommendations (Dolby, DTS, THX, etc.) put the surround speakers to the sides of the listener.

Once BluRay became THE format for discs, reviewers dropped reviewing outdated DVDs. So why are you continuing to give print space to those soundbar companies that won't convert to the new lossless sound formats DolbyTrueHD & DTS HDMaster, such as this Polk product?
I've no problem you're reviewing these on-line, but valuable print space is another matter. PLEASE! Stop giving credence to outdated technology.
