Make every movie night way more exciting with Polk's TL350 five-speaker system. These speakers use some advanced technologies to create incredibly lifelike sound that draws you into your on-screen entertainment. The four Blackstone satellite speakers and the Blackstone center channel speaker produce effortless sound with startling dynamics, especially given their small size. Just add the Polk powered subwoofer of your choice to get deep, room-shaking bass. You can even upgrade to a seven-channel home theater when you add an extra pair of satellite speakers to the mix.

Advanced technology produces effortlessly natural sound
Polk's latest breakthrough is "Time Lens" technology, which aligns the drivers in such a way that high- and low-frequency sounds all reach your ears at the same time. It improves the speakers' soundstaging and imaging, so that you'll start to forget you're watching a movie and really feel like you're part of the action. This technology makes this system great for video games, too, because you'll be able to clearly pinpoint where sounds are coming from all around you, like monster roars or enemy gunfire.

Polk's enclosure design puts performance first
The satellite and center channel speakers also use an "acoustic lens" in their grilles to disperse sound waves in a way that makes your music and movie soundtracks sound larger and more open. They feature Polk's acclaimed PowerPortR technology to help reinforce lower bass output. Plus, each sturdy cabinets are reinforced with steel plates to help fight resonances that can muddy the sound.

Doing a brilliant impression of your local cineplex, the compact BDS 5 is a one-stop home entertainment solution, coming complete with a 5.1-channel Blu-ray DiscT receiver, DolbyR Digital and DTSR surround-sound decoding, an HDMIR output and a USB port for importing music, video and picture files.

A superb surround-sound experience.
When paired with the right home theater speaker system, the 5.1-channel BDS 5 digital receiver soars to great heights, providing a thrilling surround-sound experience for multiple listeners. By integrating DolbyR Digital and DTSR surround-sound technologies, the BDS 5 is able to decode film soundtracks - including Dolby and DTS high-resolution soundtracks from Blu-ray DiscT recordings - in their native formats. By presenting every nuance of a movie score - just as it's meant to be heard - the BDS 5 does a praiseworthy job of reproducing audio that's precise and faithful to what the filmmaker intended.

Crystal-clear HDMIR perfection.
When it comes to watching your favorite movies and TV shows, you want to enjoy the best high-definition picture and sound quality available. Thanks to the integration of an HDMIR 1.3a output, you will. By delivering HD digital video and high-resolution audio at the highest possible level (up to 1080p), the BDS 5 allows you to experience each frame of Hollywood action as it was shot - without quality loss due to conversion or compression of a video or audio signal. After all, if you're going to recreate the movie theater experience at home, why not come as close to the real thing as possible?

A multitalented multimedia player.
Imagine a receiver that can play every song, video or picture file you throw its way - all on your flat-screen TV. Serving as a multimedia device that's capable of playing media as sophisticated as Blu-ray DiscT technology (or even casual videos shot on your iPhone device) straight from the USB port, the BDS 5 offers great flexibility you might never have deemed possible. Simply attach a device (such as a flash drive) to the front-panel USB port, which makes temporary connections easy, and watch your media manifest itself before your very eyes. That's all it takes: One hard drive and you're instantly watching MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MP3, WMA and JPEG files - with greater quality than your computer monitor could ever deliver.

Take control with preprogrammed/learning remote.
There's nothing more frustrating than a coffee table stacked with more remote controls than coffee-table books. That's why the BDS 5 simplifies your life by having one remote control that's capable of controlling your TV, cable boxes, satellite tuners and home theater system. And with an on-screen menu that makes setting up and using the system simple, the BDS 5 can give you a level of synchronicity among your components that will make your life easier.

Dynamic digital-amplifier technology.
Going digital has many benefits when it comes to technology such as digital amplifiers - including the BDS 5 receiver. With the BDS 5, your audio signal is smooth because it reduces conversion artifacts and improves sound quality by keeping the sound in the digital domain - from the sound source to the amplifier output. In addition, by utilizing digital amplifier technology, the BDS 5 keeps its receiver size small to ensure your system generates less heat than others - a benefit when it comes to reducing your carbon footprint. Ultimately, the BDS 5 provides not just an optimal entertainment experience but an energy-efficient one as well.

Gain extensive connectivity through multiple inputs and outputs.
With three digital inputs and two line outputs, the BDS 5 empowers you with great flexibility for mixing and matching other systems. And even though the BDS 5 provides you with everything you expect out of your home theater (and more), you can expand your system using multiple audio sources at any time. In addition, the BDS 5 offers up extensive connectivity in ways that more limited systems can only dream of. It even has an Ethernet port that allows you to connect to the Internet via your local area network, so you can take advantage of BD-LiveT interactivity - a next-generation technology that allows you to create your own programming with MP3, WMA and JPEG playback.

Enhanced display features designed to save energy.
Thanks to a dot-matrix information display that communicates freely with you to deliver status messages, the BDS 5 allows you to play music without turning on the TV - a forward-thinking feature that saves you energy. Additionally, a screen-saver function prevents image burn-in on CRT and plasma displays. The BDS 5 even has a cover-art display function as a nod to state-of-the-art MP3 player technology. It can show you the artist and album you're listening to, thanks to audio files with ID3 tags from USB devices.

Improve the quality of your connections.
You can never have too-secure a cable connection when it comes to preventing disruptions to your signal. That's why the BDS 5 has heavy-duty, gold-plated binding-post speaker connectors to help you achieve the strongest connection possible - hence minimizing the likelihood of distortion or interference. The BDS 5 receiver is also compatible with a variety of speaker wires - accepting banana connectors, spade connectors, pin connectors, bare wire and any other connectors you're likely to find. To help you simplify the process before installing the unit, the BDS 5 also comes with a detachable IEC power cord that you can run to the installation site with ease.

Intuitive playlist memory.
It's nice to have a home theater system with a great memory. By having a playlist function in place to store the locations of frequently used media, the BDS 5 receiver remembers your favorite selections, making it easy for you to play files stored on your USB devices or CD-Rs - with a minimum of button pushing. It's one thing to listen to your receiver on a stellar home theater system. But when it listens to you and remembers your commands, isn't that a nice bonus?

Be ready when it comes to upgrades.
Keep your receiver's performance up to speed with the latest software for improved operation - at the moment upgrades become available. With the BDS 5's on-screen display (OSD), you can simplify the upgrade process and ensure your BDS 5 receiver is consistently running in line with its highest potential - keeping you as up to date as humanly possible.

An impressive solo performance.
Sometimes when you're watching a sporting event or movie in your living room at night using the BDS 5 with a 5.1-channel speaker system, those sleeping in the other rooms (or even neighbors) can take note of the experience. That's why the BDS 5 comes with a headphone jack, so you can enjoy your very own private listening experience and not have to worry that sound is traveling outside your immediate four walls.
