Polk Omni S6 wireless speaker review: Play-Fi hardware is still hobbled by Play-Fi software

Theo Nicolakis | Aug. 17, 2016
This speaker's price tag, sound, and feature set are appealing enough, but it's all undermined by a distinctly mediocre app.

Bottom line: A system with unrealized potential

Polk’s Omni S6 is a feature-rich wireless speaker that delivers good sound. Its ability to stream high-resolution music files and the DTS Play-Fi ecosystem that enables you to mix and match this speaker with a diverse range of other components—be they from Polk or other manufacturers—are huge strengths. Unfortunately, all that potential is held back by a cumbersome app. If DTS can address the app’s usability issues, it will be a whole new ballgame for Play-Fi.
