CES NEWS: Polk Audio to unveil SurroundBar 5.1 DVD Theatre system

We've seen single 'surround bar' speaker systems before from the likes of Yamaha, Denon and Boston Acoustics, but now Polk Audio has a new twist on the concept.

Its 5.1 SurroundBar multichannel speaker comes with a separate, compact DVD player with FM/AM tuner and a front USB port for connecting an MP3 player, making it a complete home cinema in a box system.

The speaker uses Polk's proprietary SDA technology and PowerPort bass venting system to provide more realistic surround imaging from a single unit.

The device will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this weekend, along with Polk's new I-Sonic Entertainment System 2 iPod dock.
