1.0 out of 5 stars Nice sound, but................., March 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered both this Polk product and the Polk wireless subwoofer-- the latter works great, but was disappointed with the wireless rears. Instruction manual has few details and not helpful, and even shows two diagrams of the unit which are different. Speakers do not have their own volume control, so you have to adjust the volumes on all of your other speakers to accomodate this-- not a huge deal once you get it set up. Main problem encountered was that each time turned TV on, speakers didn't work unless I manually re-set the wireless transmitter and re-set the speakers. In calling the 1-800 Polk Audio tech support line, the tech told me he has the same issue with the product in his home; he offered a couple of possible solutions, but neither worked. Thus, it appears that once the speakers either lose power (you have to manually turn them on/off) or they go into sleep/standby mode (there is no 'standby' switch, by the way-- what is apparently built in is that the unit goes into sleep mode after TV turned off for 15-20 minutes and speakers receive no signal), they require manual re-set to function again. It is hard to imagine that two wireless products from the same manufacturer could have been engineered and perform so different. When the speakers are connected, they operate great, but if you buy, plan for the constant manual re-set process each time you want to have rear sound.
