Appreciate your comments. Anyone who owns the SR should be a valuable resource to Polk, since this hit the market only a week ago.
I've got it under a 75" TV and it does well with movies, (4K, UHD from Netflix, Amazon etc.) There's solid bass, not over- exaggerated, and the pair of surrounds (wall mounted) fill the space nicely. The room is 15 x 25, a family room, open to the kitchen area.
The disappointment for me is when watching news or two channel television. Without "Voice Adjust" at full, speech seems directionless, thin, and almost out-of-phase. There is a setting for two channel (music button pressed twice) but that does not give a satisfactory result. After having the Klipsch RSB-14 for a few months, I can say the Polk is better for 5.1 movie viewing, but the Klipsch had far better sound contour for standard television content.
Eyestreet- I do have a question about "downloaded software." I'm hooked up through Google Home and the wifi indicator is illuminated on the rear of the bar, but how did you download software and how can you tell if and when the Polk is updating?
Thanks, and Happy New Year
