Providing the sound are four 3in full-range drivers and two 0.75in tweeters with Polk claiming it 'boasts plenty of brawn to easily outperform traditional soundbars'.

The MagniFi 2 also comes with a wireless subwoofer to provide 'seismic bass' and has Chromecast Audio - and Bluetooth - built-in so you can stream music from a range of different services including Amazon Music HD, Spotify and Tidal.

There's also three HDMI ports including one with ARC (audio return channel) as well as optical input. Polk has also ensured the MagniFi 2 automatically works with Samsung, LG, Vizio, TCL, and Sony TV remotes to control volume.

Michael McCole, senior product marketing manager for soundbars at Polk Audio. “Using tools like Polk Audio’s patented SDA technology, 3D Audio Mode for virtual height and Dolby Digital and DTS decoding, the MagniFi 2 soundbar is a significant step closer to a multi-channel listening experience at a much more attainable price.”

The Polk MagniFi 2 joins other soundbars in the range such as the MagniFi Max and MagniFi Mini. It's available now priced at £499, US$499, €499.
