With the launch of the HitMaster, Polk Audio has set up a pretty cool giveaway to bring their HitMaster studio monitor along with 3-D gaming to a couple of lucky winners. The "Rock The House - The Ultimate 3-D Gaming Giveaway" promotion starts today (4/21/10) and runs through June 20, 2010. The total prizes are worth over $5000, with the Grand Prize is valued at more than $3000 and includes:

• Three (3) Polk Audio HitMaster gaming stage monitors
• 60” Mitsubishi 3-D Ready DLP HDTV (model WD60737)
• Three (3) XpanD X102 – DLP-Link Stereoscopic Active 3-D Glasses

• Rock Band 2 Special Edition
• Playstation 3 The Beatles: Rock Band
• James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game
• One year subscription to Game Informer magazine
• HitMaster and Rock Band t-shirts
 

We reviewed the Polk Audio HitMaster back in January and gave it a very high grade. I also was able to experience an entire speaker array made up of nothing but 12 Polk HitMasters when I visited with Polk Audio during the CES 2010. Let me tell you, these little speakers (especially for $99 each) are worth the price.


Head on over to the sign up page at www.polkrocks.com (it’s free!) and take the couple of minutes to sign up. You may win yourself a sweet 3-D gaming rig or one of the other secondary prizes including HitMasters, Sony PS3s, Rock Band games, Game Informer subscription and T-Shirts. Check the release after the jump for the exact secondary prize descriptions.
