Polk Audio Reserve R200AE 50th Anniversary Edition Bookshelf Loudspeakers

Polk celebrates five decades of audio innovation with the 50th Anniversary Reserve R200AE. Featuring the same performance that earned the R200 The Absolute Sound’s Bookshelf Loudspeaker of the Year, but with a limited production run of only 1,000 pairs worldwide, housed in Polk’s original real cherry wood veneer, and sporting a serialized commemorative plate laser-engraved with Matthew Polk’s signature, the R200AE is the ultimate collector’s-edition Polk speaker.

Exceptional sound and elegant design at an incredible price

The elegant Polk Reserve R200 bookshelf speaker delivers full-bodied sound and clean tight bass. The 6.5” Turbine Cone, 1” Pinnacle tweeter and X-Port deliver clear, crisp Hi-Res Audio for the best reproduction of sound for the price.

Amazing Sound and Elegance

With understated elegance, the Reserve line has a minimalist design with universal appeal. Inheriting Polk’s flagship transducer array, the R200 produces exceptional sound that rivals competitor speakers that sell for twice the price.

Polk Newly Patented X-Port (ETF)

Polk’s newly patented X-Port incorporates an Eigentone Filter (ETF) offering distortion-free, effortless bass. Consisting of a set of closed-pipe absorbers that are specifically tuned to catch and eliminate traditional speaker distortions. X-Port ensures that the upper bass and mid-range are free of port and cabinet resonances for smooth, detailed audio.

High Definition Pinnacle Ring Radiator Tweeter

Over 40 years of tweeter innovation, design and prototyping has led to the development of the new 1” high definition Pinnacle ring radiator tweeter. Developed by Polk Audio, it delivers ultra-clear, crisp highs without unwanted coloration or distortions. The Pinnacle tweeter features a finely tuned waveguide that dramatically improves the dispersion of high frequency energy ensuring a broad “sweet spot” while the critically damped rear-chamber helps defeat any unwanted resonances. Hi-Res certified, the Pinnacle Tweeter is designed for today’s two-channel music listening as well as multi-channel 3D audio found in movies, sports, and video game soundtracks.

6.5” Turbine Cone

Polk developed the Turbine cone specifically for our flagship products to ensure the natural reproduction of the mid-range, to which human ears are particularly sensitive. The Turbine cone combines Polk’s proprietary foam core and molded Turbine geometry which dramatically increases stiffness and damping, without adding mass. You will hear every detail and experience a smooth, detailed mid-range and effortless bass.
