Polk Audio: Listen to Innovation

Polk Audio is a US manufacturer of audio products, specialising in speakers but also making amplifiers and tuners.

Based in Baltimore, Maryland, their mission statement says it all:

“Since the founding of Polk in 1972, it’s been our mission to craft high quality, great sounding speakers that are accessible to everyone. For the people of Polk, designing and building authentic audio solutions is our true passion.”

Polk was founded by physics and mechanical engineering graduates Matt Polk, George Klopfer and Sandy Gross, who were frustrated by the Asian domination of the transistor radio world in the early 70s. They wanted to create an American brand that would be affordable and available, to open up the home audio market.

The rest is history. The Polk Monitor Series performed beyond anybody's expectation, scientifically solving the issues of the day with regard to clarity, depth and realism. They reproduced recorded sound with the highest level of lifelike detail heard in its time. They were inexpensive and performed well in any size of listening space.

Today Polk continues this legacy, holding more than 65 patents for audio design innovations, making it one of the most regarded companies in the industry.
