Polk, one of the premier brands as far as audio goes (most movie theaters actually use Polk for the audio of their movies), has a great looking Omni S2 Wireless Multi-Room Speaker on sale over at eBay today for just $69. This is similar to Sonos, where it will connect with other Omni S2 wireless speakers and change depending on the room you currently are in. As Polk Audio explains, the Omni Collection is “a series of wireless products that allow you to control what you want to listen to from your smartphone, tablet or computer and stream it wirelessly into any room”. So instead of just getting a bunch of the Omni S2 wireless speakers, you can get other speakers in that family and add to your home.
With the Polk Omni app – available for both Android and iOS – you are able to mix-and-match speakers with their Play-Fi technology which is an open standard. This will allow you to future-proof the audio portion of your home. If you’re wondering about the sound quality from the Polk Audio Omni S2, don’t. Polk Audio is known for their audio quality and they are one of the best out there. Maybe not quite as good as Sonos, but they are still pretty fantastic. However they don’t have the same app support as Sonos does. That will likely come with time. You can grab a manufacturer refurbished Omni S2 from eBay right now.
