Polk Audio Soundbar with Alexa at Best Buy

Have you been looking at sound bars and not sure if you need one or not? There are so many to choose from that it makes the decision hard. I’ve been there. I’ve been at Best Buy staring at them wondering which is best and having no idea what to do. While I can’t say this is the best one for you, I can say that the new Polk Audio (2.1-Channel Soundbar System with Amazon Alexa Voice Assistant built-in) is an awesome choice.


Yes you read that right, the sound bar comes with Alexa. My house is already filled with Alexa products so having my sound bar for the TV being one in an added bonus for me.


It comes with a HDMI cord and optical cord as well so you really just have to plug it in, download the Polk Audio app and follow the prompts and you are good to go.
