Cyber Monday is just hours away, but you can snag a big saving to take your holiday movie marathon to new heights of immersion with this deal from Amazon.
The Polk Audio MagniFi Max offers exquisite audio and true surround sound thanks to its combination of a powerful, but nuanced sound bar, a pair of wall-mounted speakers, and a huge subwoofer.
That means whether you're watching The Nightmare Before Christmas, It's a Wonderful Life, or Die Hard (yes, it's a Christmas movie), you'll get the best quality audio.
The Polk Audio MagniFi Max surround sound bar connects wirelessly to the speakers, too, so no need to worry about tripping over cables when you grab the popcorn.
Better yet, Amazon’s early Cyber Monday deal has dropped the price to $200 off of the MSRP, bringing it down to $399.
Big sound for less money
As part of Amazon’s deal, for under $400 you’ll get the sound bar itself, as well as two smaller speakers and a sizeable subwoofer for adding powerful bass. There are 3-inch drivers on the smaller speakers (perfect for wall-mounting), and an 8-inch one on the subwoofer.
Polk says that the speakers are “plug and play”, meaning you can connect them almost instantly once powered on. That’s done wirelessly, too, so you won’t have to worry about tripping over cables when you break to grab more popcorn.
There are 3 HDMI inputs, an HDMI-ARC input, and an Optical port to help facilitate a smooth setup, and while it lacks AirPlay functionality (see here for the best AirPlay 2 sound bars), Google Chromecast streaming is supported.
You’ll also find a variety of EQ levels, with presets for music, sport, or movies, and an independent voice level control to alleviate losing what’s said amidst the action (we’re looking at you, Tenet).
Customer reviews are positive, too, with users regularly praising the swift setup process while also noting the size of the included subwoofer. Some have noted the high price of the product, but thankfully this sizeable discount helps negate much of that.
