Polk Audio in India at The Revolver Club
Polk Audio, an American hi-fi audio manufacturing company, has a start-up story like no other. It began as a custom speakers modification service by a bunch of young American friends that studied together in John Hopkins Institute and is now one of the most sought after brands worldwide when it comes to speaker systems.
Polk Audio is one of the leaders worldwide when it comes to manufacturing hi-fi audio systems, which explains the high demand for its products globally. India is no different. The Revolver Club shop has seen a steep rise of audiophiles who are interested in buying Polk Audio products online in India. This is why The Revolver Club online store in India has got their hands on some of the leading Polk products, including the Polk active speakers as well as the Polk powered speakers and the highly cherished Polk sound bars.
In four decades the Polk Audio team has managed to grow ahead of technology, and this has been possible because of the young leadership as well as the enthusiastic learning that the top management and the engineers at Polk continually go through. Polk Audio is different. It has not just emphasized on making their own products, but it has also kept a track on the progress that the other companies were making to ensure that they make products that fit perfectly with other audio components that leading manufacturers are making such as Marantz, Pioneer and Denon.Polk has multiple patents in technologies that were conceived with hard work as well as smart decisions of the entire team. These patents have made sure that Polk Audio has been able to make some of the best speakers such as Polk powered speakers, Polk Audio active speakers and Polk Audio home theatre speakers. In recent times the Polk Soundbars have become the flagship Polk product that has received recognition and awards worldwide.
Features of Polk Audio Speakers and Other Polk Products
Polk engineers and designers have joined hands to make sure that the aesthetically pleasing Polk speakers designs are also crafted to aid the sound reproduction. The best possible materials are selected along with great ideas of physics and geometry. All of this is made possible due to the help of advanced analysis of the speaker’s overall electroacoustic and mechanical system. Eventually, this minimizes resonance and improves sound quality by creating a dynamic balance.
Patented Stereo Dimensional Array (SDA)
Polk Audio products have the SDA technology that cancels out all the destructive cross channel interference within the speaker. This patented technology maintains a wide range of soundstage and full stereo image. SDA reproduces surround sound from one location, enhancing the entire three-dimensional surround sound experience. SDA is what makes Polk home theatre speakers, one of the best home theatre speakers in the world. The movie buffs should now be glad that The Revolver Club has made some of the leading Polk products available in India.
Wide Dispersion Array (WDA)
Matthew Polk disliked the humongous size of American speakers when they first started Polk Audio. While smaller speakers could not deliver a broader soundstage. The team Polk overcame this, their determination bore fruit as they managed to produce wide, immersive and enveloping soundstage which was explicitly tuned for small cabinet sizes. The WDA was responsible for broadening soundstage for smaller speakers.
Expensive amplifiers that could deliver high power had always been a hurdle in bringing the world of hi-fi audio to the masses. Hi-fi audio could be accessed only by the affluent or by those who were passionate enough to save up for expensive audio components. Hi-fi audio was highly centralized in Europe and East Asia(mostly Japan), this allowed American companies like Polk and Klipsch to make powered speakers that could deliver magnificent and loud sound without the need of expensive high powered amplifiers.
The key to this is the patented port geometry of Polk Audio, which increases bass response at lower frequencies without colorization or distortion. This is one of the best features of Polk Audio. With less amplification power, it manages to produce lower frequency sounds while dramatically reducing port air turbulence.
Finding a sweet spot or the best listening spot in the room is what you will notice a lot of audiophiles doing when they come across a new speaker system. For decades it has been a task for speaker manufacturers to create crossover technology that can help in creating a wider listening spot so that more people can enjoy lifelike soundstage no matter where you sit in the room.
This has been made possible by Polk Audio thanks to their patented crossover technology that eradicates undesired interference in the speaker assembly for seamless audio listening experience irrespective of your where you sit in the room. This is a feature that makes Polk Soundbars and Polk home theatre speakers a recommended buy. The Revolver Club online store has some of the leading Polk Audio products that you can buy in India.
The most evident difference between consumer level inferior speakers and high-end hi-fi audio products is the clarity of sound. Precision is paramount while watching a movie or a sporting event where critical dialogue or commentary can often be distorted due to muddy bass or unclear mids and colorized highs. In high-end speaker systems such as the Polk Audio products, there is a feature that controls dialogue volume levels that isolates and adjusts the voice channel. This helps in emulating crisp, distortion-free dialogues that help in evoking the true emotion intended by the filmmaker.
One way a good soundbar or a home theatre speaker stands out is by its ability to reproduce clear dialogue. Anyone who has been listening to heavy and muddy bass speakers and is suddenly introduced to a hi-fi speaker notices that the dialogues become so clear and that they can finally truly enjoy the visuals as well as they don’t have to keep reading the subtitles. Good audio can transform the way you experience movies.
Polk Audio: Start of the Start-up
Polk Audio has a story like no other when it comes to the foundation of the company. Usually, such companies are born out of sheer passion, grit, determination and a lot of inspiration. Polk audio is different. The reason being that it was started as a business idea and not as some passion project.
Matthew Polk, George Klopfer and Sandy Gross were friends from the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. After their graduation, George had left town looking for greener pastures outside, but soon he returned and while they were comparing notes, George proposed that the bunch of them should get into some business. There was rampant unemployment at the time and even Ph.D. holding physicists had very few job opportunities. This pushed Matthew to get into marine biology.
At George’s proposal of having a business, the group brainstormed and decided they should certainly do something in the sector of audio. Matthew Polk and rest of his friends had already built a few things as DIY projects back in the college days, but this was different. This was about getting into the business of audio products manufacturing.
At the time, the speakers made in Europe could deliver great midrange, high range, and commendable imaging, but they were just not loud enough. These speakers did not have good bass or dynamic range and the worst of all they would blow up all the time. On the flipside, there were American powered speakers that had punchy bass and good dynamic soundstage and they could get really loud and handle high power(keep in mind this was in the early 1970s before Polk audio was founded). But the American speakers had midrange and highs that were not even close to the European counterparts.
So, Matthew and his team decided to make something that delivered all the frequencies of sound fairly well. This is because the ’70s was the era of live music. And to emulate the live sound, Polk and his team had to make sure that their Polk Audio products could deliver all frequencies and that too without distortions while making sure that they are loud.
Award and Accolades
The young team at Polk audio has managed to put in a lot of energy into making some of the best hi-fi audio products in the market, keeping it competitive for the rest of the companies.
