Games have profoundly complex audio, combining music, ambient details, special effects, and dialog. What’s more, an FPS game presents an entirely different world from a driving game. After an in-depth assessment of the players in the audio industry, Xbox chose Polk to unleash the rich, complex audio contained in Microsoft’s most popular games. This is a relationship in which the skillsets of the two companies complement each other perfectly. The N1 SurroundBar is the result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great soundbar, worth every penny. December 6, 2013
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
This is my first "quality" soundbar and so far it doesn't disappoint. Very crisp, clear, loud sound, even when cranked up you don't get that cracking sound that cheaper speakers give off. However, you really have to position this correctly in your room to get it to sound good when using the preset modes on it because of the way it bounces the sound around the room. Best to sit back a bit and make sure you are dead center, doing this is sounds amazing. If you sit off to the side it can sound a bit odd at times, but then again that's depending on the settings used.

The only issues I am having aren't from the speakers, but from the hdmi / optical pass through on my TV. The TV sound is tinny and half the time you can't hear the person talking in the foreground as if the "center" speaker is missing. Again, this is just a TV setting issue that I have yet to work out, so if you notice this get to digging around your TV's audio menu.

There isn't really much else to say about a soundbar other than it does what it's supposed to do, and it does it very well. The sound is so good and I'm glad I spent the money. Like the other reviewers mentioned, I was kind of wary about the cost / performance since there are no reviews around at all online yet, but I decided to take the dive anyways. So far, extremely happy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy Addition March 8, 2014
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I bought this to complete my modest home theater set-up. I have a 46" Samsung LED and Xbox One in a fairly small living room. I didn't want to mess with true surround sound, but wanted to step up from the built in speakers in the Sammy.

SET UP
Initial impressions were good. Set up was simple, it comes with all needed cords. I chose to connect the soundbar the TV optical output rather than directly to the Xbox. It's possible that connecting straight to the Xbox would result in a higher quality audio stream. But, I still have a PS3 hooked up that I also use the soundbar with.

It's a good looking piece of kit and sounds crisp and loud. Set in front of the TV, the soundbar was just slightly taller than the bottom on the TV bezel. I fixed this issue by placing $10 worth of Ikea shelving under the TV stand. It was very easy to program my TV remote (and by extension Xbox Kinect) to control the power, but for some reason the Kinect will not adjust the soundbar volume, even though it works with the built in TV volume.

USE
Soundwise, it's nice, especially if you are sitting directly in front of the speakers and can turn the volume up. It's not exactly as sensational as actual surround sound but it does give the impression of a wider, deeper field of sound than the TV speakers.

At lower volumes, the different sound profiles aren't especially useful - all but music make it difficult to hear dialogue.

It's also easy to use stream music to it directly via Bluetooth or from a Windows PC to the Xbox One and it makes a fine stereo.

OVERALL
Not for hardcore audiophiles, but it's an attractive option for Xbox One owners looks for an enhanced audio experience while gaming and watching your stories.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cant hear what is being said & really plastic? December 5, 2013
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
At first I was happy, Very crisp background noise on games and movies. When people talk or voices, that's another story. They are very low and you cant hear them for the background noise. Only 4 settings so you cant change anything. I ended up returning it. Something as high price as this shouldn't be plastic.

Color Name:Black
This sound bar is marketing as having been designed for the Xbox One, but don't let that fool you. This device is not only compatible with other systems (Satellite, PS3/4, DVD/Blu-ray), but it sounds pretty good too!

I decided to pick this up for a second room where I was considering moving my video game set up (ps3/ps4). The TV speakers I had on my 42" just weren't cutting it. I picked this bar up on a whim, as it was designed for the X-Box one. Set up was easy - it plugs in via a power supply that goes straight to the outlet (read: no giant power brick to connect) and it also comes with a fiber optic cable - which isn't always the case with this kind of stuff. There's also a remote which can 'programmed,' but I haven't tested out that functionality.

The sound is really, really good! I was pretty surprised as I had listened to a number of sound bars when trying to simplify my main setting before being gifted a new 7.1 receiver. They always lacked overall compared to what I was used to. This sound bar won't blow you out of the water, but the audio is rich and clear, there's a decent amount of bass. It's a lot better than comparatively priced units I've listened to.

Gaming specific features - there's a few preset modes, including modes that are designed for tv and movies. It basically makes adjustments to the audio to give you the 'best' experience. This includes gaming modes for FPS and racing games. I didn't find them to be anything special, so I decided to leave it on the dvd/tv setting.

Another big plus is that there are a number of inputs, so it works for more than just your video game console. (fiber optic, coax, mini, and a subwoofer (sadly not included)). You can stream wirelessly from bluetooth which I tried out only briefly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, but it works well for CoD and BF4 etc.
Expensive, but worthy over a headset. Works well with movies etc, but I can not figure out how to make it work with my TV. I'm sure there's a way, but anyways it gets the job done
