“Our goal with this partnership was to create a sound system that aesthetically complements the Xbox One’s place in the center of the living room and brings to life the fantastic worlds of entertainment through superior audio quality and performance,” said Mark Suskind, vice president of product line development at Polk. “Our teams had a shared vision for excellence and passion for completing the all-in-one entertainment experience of the Xbox One with products that deliver spectacular sound for every scenario.”
Branden Powell, Microsoft director of strategic alliances, remarked, “The Xbox One brings together innovative technology and iconic design, and these are attributes that we identified in Polk’s engineering as well. The collaboration has resulted in audio products that are customized for all-in-one entertainment and that will immerse Xbox One users in brilliant sound, whether they are using the console to play a game, watch TV or a movie, or listen to music.”
Polk products for the Xbox One will be officially launched and on display at E3 on June 11-13 at the Polk booth (#4016).
