Our take on the Polk Audio Camden Square by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
One speaker for four DJs
There's a party going on, and it's centered on Polk Audio's Camden Square. This portable Bluetooth powered speaker does more than pump out the tunes in a 360° soundfield. When you and your friends download the free Polk Audio DJ Stream app from Apple iTunes® or Google Play, the fun can start. As host, you can authorize three other friends to stream music to the Camden Square. The app builds a playlist, taking each tune in sequence.
Polk's Camden Square speaker and DJ Stream app offer an innovative way to share music with friends.
Everyone with the app will see the playlist of upcoming tracks and get to vote “Thumbs Up” or “Thumbs Down.” You can change DJ assignments around, so everyone has a chance to share their favorite songs. And when the party's over, the vote tally will show you which DJ had the hottest tracks.
High quality Bluetooth audio
The system features aptX® audio coding, an advanced form of Bluetooth that allows higher-fidelity sound with compatible Bluetooth devices. The Camden Square is backwards-compatible with earlier forms of Bluetooth, too. So you can wirelessly stream music from just about any smartphone still enjoy outstanding sound.
High-performance speaker design
Not surprisingly, Polk has engineered the Camden Square to deliver rich, full sound. It features four 2" long-throw drivers, with two side-firing rectangular passive radiators strengthening the bass. Polk's Dynamic Balance technology reduces distortion and unwanted resonance, keeping your music sounding detailed and clear. The system creates a balanced, 360° soundfield. So set it just about anywhere — on a shelf in the corner of the room, or in the middle of a picnic table.
Portable and versatile
The built-in rechargeable batteries can power the Camden Square for up to an epic 24 hours. And there's even a minijack input so you can plug in an old-school non-Bluetooth device such as a portable game console or CD player.
