With understated elegance, the Reserve line has a minimalist design with universal appeal. Inheriting Polk’s flagship transducer array, the speakers produce exceptional sound rivalling competitor speakers that sell for twice the price. Immerse yourself in your favourite musical recordings or your weekly movie night with the new Polk Reserve.


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.

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.

Sleek Modern Design

Reserve R200 bookshelf speakers are available in two modern finishes: Midnight Black and Satin White (coming mid 2021).

Height Module Compatible

These bookshelf speakers can be used for the front stage of any home theatre as well as side and/or rear surrounds. To add immersive vertical sound, Reserve R900 height modules are compatible (R900 sold separately).

High-Resolution Certified

Your sound is only as good as your source. With Hi-Res Audio certification, the Polk Reserve R200 delivers clear and detailed high-end response. Female vocals are particularly smooth and without colouration.



"To create its Reserve Series, Polk Audio has leveraged technologies from its high-end Legend loudspeakers – including eye-catching Pinnacle tweeters and Turbine Cone drivers – while also introducing its first on-wall/on-cabinet height modules. A treat for system builders, the range has nine options, including a slim centre channel and three different floorstanders, timbre-matched to accommodate mix-and-match installs. The voicing favours neutral tonality, excellent detail retrieval and a smooth balanced bass response aided by Polk’s Power Port 2.0 venting technology – all attributes likely to set a home theatre fan’s pulse racing. While the Reserve Series’ understated design helps the speakers blend in to any room, its performance guarantees you’ll sit up and listen."


"The biggest impression on me, apart from the high level of transparency and microdynamics, was the bass. This is something that even experienced audiophiles, trained in listening to power cables and anti-vibration platforms, will cherish."


"I can still claim that the Reserve can measure up acoustically with more expensive systems, perhaps almost twice as expensive systems! Polk Reserve is highly recommended, even for those who may have budgeted for a higher total cost of speaker purchase."

The Next Web

"The Polk Reserve R200 is not just a fantastic deal — it’s a really solid speaker at almost any price. Though no one can guarantee you’ll like a speaker, I can at least tell you that you’re getting more than your money’s worth with the R200. Its refreshing to see such thoughtful engineering on a speaker in this price range."

"Great speakers that you can listen to for a long time without symptoms of fatigue. They are very musical, coherent, saturated and tuned toward a warming sound, which makes them friendly even with less sophisticated electronics."
