Summary: This two-way center channel provides enough sound quality even though it lacks a dedicated mid range driver. Polk delivers exceptional sound with this center channel that will rival $300 and up center channels from other vendors. The Polk Audio TSi CS10 recommends 20 to 150 watts of amplifier power for the best audio quality.
Summary: I purchased this Polk Audio CS10 to match it up with a pair of Polk Audio TSi200 front speakers for a home theater/ 7.1 surround sound setup. You notice the excellent sound quality right off the bat. Even regular TV sounds better. There are two points of concern, however, that one should keep in mind before purchasing this setup. First, these are not small speakers. They do stick out and if "unobtrusive" is your game this is not the setup for you.
Summary: I've been very happy with this speaker. It matches up with my RTI in wall speakers great sound-wise. I even watched some different sources with the center channel only and was really impressed with the clarity of the speech coming through.
Summary: This speaker is amazing. I tested it on some great FLAC vocal music (Tool and dredg) and I have never heard such clarity, even at loud volumes. This was recommended by an audiophile friend, and I can hear why. It is pretty hefty, but exceedingly worth the weight and size. Polk makes an amazing system and I would definitely recommend this to any audiophile.
Summary: Excellent dialogue reproduction. Quality components and handsome design. Larger than one would think. Excellent value. Recommended. I've owned for more than two years and under near constant use, this speaker still looks and sounds new.
Summary: The first thing I noticed, is that this is a large well built speaker. Looks good on the fireplace mantel just below the flat screen TV. When I first fired it up, the speaker produced clear music and vocals from a CD. It passed the movie test when I played the independence day DVD to see how it performed in 5.1 surround, it produced crisp and clear dialog from the actors. A good center channel speaker makes a big difference in the movie viewing experience.
Summary: I can't say much more than has already been said about this really great product. This was my very first Polk speaker and I'm amazed at the extremely good sound quality and its beautiful design. I'm like another customer here as I replaced a small Sony center speaker with this one and what a difference! Nothing against the Sony brand but that particular model was far less superior than Polk's CS10, hands-down.
Summary: I bought this speaker a couple of weeks ago and if I could give this thing a 11/10 I would. The sound quality on this thing is such a large leap over my previous center(a Yamaha that I got with a Home Theater in a Box set) I also upgraded my rear speakers to Polk Audio M3II's so it really helps the over quality of my surround sound. I already own some vintage Samsai SP-X9's for my fronts, so it's nice having some speakers that can keep up with it.
Summary: This is an amazing speaker for the price. It really brings out the details in movies. There are things going on in the background that you would have never known were there with a lesser quality speaker.
