Summary: Perfect. Just perfection in a nice large unit. This is NOT your small little shelf unit you may have had in college or in prior 5.1 Home Theatre package units.This is a nice hefty (large magnets yeah!!) unit thats a great addition to any 5.1 or 7.1 stereo setup. The quality of Polk Audio products is superb. You get what you pay for in sound quality for years. They are top notch and hard to beat for their price line.
Summary: I replaced my Boston acoustic center channel with this one. What a difference great highs and mods realy completes my system. At times I have to adjust it because it overpowers the front Channels. .
Summary: I have this Center Channel Speaker and I have been very happy with it! The sound is very Precise, Clear, Articulate and just awesome! Great for ALL sounds not just speaking! Especially for a hundred dollar speaker! The price put me off at first thinking with the astronomical costs of Center Channel Speakers in the hundreds even thousands, how could a sub two hundred dollar speaker be any good?
Pros: The sound is very Precise, Clear, Articulate and just awesome! Not just for speaking, you can throw anything at it!
Summary: I've listened to the super expensive speakers that didn't sound this good. Previously, we had a small paradigm which, granted, had big sound for a small speaker. What's great about this one is the bass for its size, mid and even high frequency response qualities. As the others mention, it's good size, though not the biggest one out there. It just sounds that good. It's also very accurate.
Summary: I have an entertainment cabinet under my TV that has a space that is exactly 18 inches wide. I needed a center speaker that would fit in here, and I found it surprisingly difficult to find one. Most are much wider than this. This speaker fit PERFECTLY at exactly 18 inches wide. It is a very attractive speaker, and the sound is excellent.
Summary: i've paired this speaker with Sony's SS-B1000 Bookshelf Speakers. Those are priced so well, that i was initially bummed to find i was going to need to pay over $100 for a decent center channel speaker. however, this speaker is such an improvement over the Sony Home Theater in a box speakers from which i was upgrading, it was well worth it.
Summary: The Polk Audio TSi CS10 is wonderful value for your money. Sound is fantastic, fit and finish is phenomenal. You do need to read the spec sheet, because this center channel is quite large. Pretty tall and deep.
Pros: Excellent sound quality, even better price
Cons: It is quite large. Be sure to read the spec sheet on dimensions.
