Summary: I have this on a Pioneer 770w 7.1 receiver with some Polk Monitor series for the other channels. I am thrilled with my new setup! As always, newegg's level of service continues to impress! UPS even dropped my speakers off a day before the tracking said that my order would arrive.
Pros: Great full-range sound! I've heard plenty of "higher end" speakers, and this center channel performs just as well, if not better. The clarity is phenomenal, even at higher volumes, and the sound is very well balanced. It happens too often that center channels have highs that are too bright or mid...
Summary: I have a 7.1 theater system, being pushed by a Sony head unit. I had upgraded all of my speakers except for the center channel. I was using an off brand thing I found at a pawn shop. Dialog was muffled and my dad could never understand what was being said.
Summary: I bought this product to replace a 10 year old Cambridge Soundworks Center Plus speaker. A co-worker who's and audiophile recommended this product. Because I originally paid $250+ for the Cambridge center years ago I figured I'd have to spend the same type of $.
Summary: Just replaced an older and smaller center channel with the CS10 Center Channel and it sounds great. Can't get over the $100.00 value on this center for my application (secondary surround system in master bedroom). My older center channel lacked bass and was set up as a small speaker.
Summary: I'm on a budget, so I'm gradually upgrading my 5.1 surround sound system as I go. My original center speaker was a speaker from a low-powered Aiwa bookshelf stereo system. Needless to say, I was not happy with that configuration.
Summary: Purchased with Sony A/V 5.1 receiver to augment Sony Bravia TV. Rather than purchase a center-bar speaker that has the same puny sound as the TV itself this set-up gives full, rich sound to my video set-up.
Summary: Paid $79.99. Price was a factor but so were reviews. Very good sound. Enclosure kind of big but gives you good sound. Sounds great with blue-ray DVD. Would buy more POLK brand. Good value. No Cons.
