High Performance, Whole-Home Networking On A Budget
Did you know that Polk Audio was the first speaker company to introduce IP-Ready loudspeakers? Only skilled and adventurous Polk Audio engineers can walk the cutting edge of technology and audio entertainment, and you benefit because the SCi Series features two high performance IP-Ready speakers for whole house networking at a great price. CAT-5-ready, these two SCi models become part of your network, and give you the ultimate control over your playlist, throughout your home. Your network automatically bypasses the speakers' passive crossover, switching to a bi-amp mode and providing significant performance improvement, including better phase characteristics, lower overall distortion and improved sensitivity. When used in conjunction with a Netstreams Digilinx System, preloaded Digital Signal Processing (DSP) settings smooth frequency response and increase bass, for utterly superb, uniquely controlled digital speaker performance. It's the state-of-the-art in audio control, at a price that you can really control.
These Models Also Have Standard Wire Connections For Existing Systems that may be upgraded later to IP control. Flip the toggle switch to choose standard wire connections or IP control.
Using Internet Protocol to control your audio system is the wave of the future. It gives your audio components their own "IP address," just like a "web page," so it can be operated from a central computer in your home. Imagine all of your entertainment options on one centrally-operated network! Even if you're not there yet, these speakers will be ready for you when you are.
