Summary: I was very satisfied with Polk Audio I would highly recommend it.Just be aware that it's a pretty large center channel speaker I had to replace my tv stand to accommodate it's size but I didn't have a problem with that now my system is complete.
I highly recommend it. It does exactly what I need it ...

Summary: I was having trouble understanding some of the talking. I had made all the adjustments I could on my receiver and TV but it did not help. I found out that the words come from the center speaker which I did not know. This speaker has made a drastic difference in the clarity of the dialog. I highly recommend it. It does exactly what I need it to do and I am very happy with it.
Summary: I am using as my center channel for an Onkyo TX-NR535, excellent sound. Can be flipped upside down to angle speaker upward, flip speaker cover as well. Its bigger than it looks, be sure to plan where you want to place it.
Pros: Great clear sound. Great price (Sale price of $90 on 11/20/2014 ). Quality construction.
Not Just Great for Home Theater - Great for Everything

Summary: I've been using small satellite speakers with a subwoofer for my family room home theater system for years. Grabbed some satellites from an old Logitech Z-5500 5.1 system. They got the job done, but I knew better quality was available at a good price if I was willing to do some homework. When my Harman Kardon receiver bit the dust after 17 years of service, it was time to upgrade, which caused somewhat of a snowball effect.
Pros: I just upgraded my entire home theater and this center channel is excellent. This is used for all TV viewing and this center really made a difference in the vocals and dialogue. I paired this with Polk PSW505 sub and Monitor 70's and am in Heaven !!!
Cons: None - Jut be careful on dimensions and placement. This is big but sounds great.
Summary: I've noticed after a few years that I have been turning the receiver up more and more to hear dialogue in movies and TV shows. Then the music comes on or a gunshot rings out and it's crazy loud. I turn it back down only to hear mumbled dialogue again in the next scene. For a while I thought it was me, but my wife recently told me she has the same issue. Ah...got it. Speaker issue. I had a small center speaker that just fit under the TV.
Summary: This is an OUTSTANDING Speaker. My hearing sucks (from years of ear buds and loud music) and I can clearly hear the dialogue in movies and TV shows. However, be mindful of the depth of the speaker. It is nearly 10” deep, and my new Samsung LED TV is only 3” deep when attached to the wall. So nearly ½ a foot of the speaker protrudes out past the TV, which is not aesthetically pleasing.
Summary: This center speaker can "make" your set up, just go in with some basic knowledge; it's great for a small to medium sized room, it can use extra power to enhance the overall sound stage, should be paired up with same make and series. With that being said, you can mix and match any speaker brand you want however, achieving a seamless sound stage is generally the preferred goal! The CS1 can and should be paired with the Monitor/TSi series.
Pros: Very nice looking speaker in person. Has a real nice sound.
Great for a medium to bigger room - AND non returnable.

Summary: I haven't had that many center speakers - since I ordered it I've been blown away by the clarity and dynamism this speaker puts out. I have been upgrading my whole system and mostly listening to what is now fantastic music CD quality. Then I plugged the CS10 in with the boys and WOW. I have a small - about 12'x12' personal room and this thing rocks the whole house. All speakers want to be turned up a bit and stretch their legs to showoff their capabilities.
