Summary: What a great item!! Still not broken in yet and I can already see/hear where this is going!! Paired with my (2) TSi 300's, they make a great team. The sound is so natural. Being a musician, I pay attention to the sound of the acoustic guitars more than anything else. The quality of a Taylor guitar really shines. It sounds as though it is being played live in my livingroom! You can't go wrong with this speaker: value, quality, & looks!
Summary: I have an Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver that came as part of an Onkyo home theater system, complete w/Onkyo speakers. The weakest speaker of the package was, by far, the center channel. I replaced it with the Polk CS10 center channel and could not be more satisfied. It brought the whole system to life! And, the sound quality from the Polk is top notch. It exceeded my expectations.
Summary: I purchased this center channel speaker to replace my in-walls. With all the good reviews and feedbacks, I decided to give this a try. I was pleasantly surprised with the output of this speaker. The sound was clear with right amount of bass. I loved the sub-woofer type air vent on the back. I have to agree that bigger sounds better. I dont remember if i ordered black or Cherry but I received cherry which is not a big deal for me.
Summary: Most surround sounds I've been exposed to, the voices always seem muffled or unclear, which probably testifies to the quality of systems I've seen. This unit brought amazing clarity to the spoken voice, it has been an excellent purchase.
For the movie lover this unit is a big bonus to your experience.

Summary: To bring clarity to dialog in movies is what this center speaker excels at. I didn't realize the importance of a GOOD center speaker in an audio setup till I got this Polk unit. I've always had center speakers but never of this caliber. The only downside to this guy is that it's so big. At 20" wide by 10" deep by nearly 7" high you've got to be sure it's not going to get in the way.
Summary: Polk Audio CS10 Center Channel Speaker (Single, Cherry) Having had the CS10 for more than a month now, I can report that it is worth every cent. 1. Appearance, great looking Cherry finish, like leaving the cover off the drivers to show it off. Minor criticism, cover is a bit hard to pry loose. 2. Installation simple, just plugged in existing speaker cable. Instructions specifically said to set the center channel setting of your receiver to 'small'. THANX! 3.
Pros: As always polk leaves competitors in the dust, Replacing a KLH center with this speaker. And am nothing but impressed, it has a great range and is acurate in its sound. Will always and forever be a polk fan. I like not having all the change shaken out of my pockets for great home audio thanks New egg!
Cons: None really, just take a look at the space you have available this bad boy is no less then 15 LBS and quite large.
Summary: Many here have commented on how big this center channel speaker is, I do not feel it is that big at all. If you look at the dimensions you can easily see if this will fit into your existing setup or not, If you are expecting some tiny little speaker that you can tuck away this is not that, but at the same time its not all that big.
Summary: I just hooked up this as part of a new sound system today. It delivers crisp, clear dialogue and really does the sound tracks of movies justice. I have it paired with Monitor40's for front and Monitor30's rear all run by a Pioneer VSX-521-K. This center is a great anchor for a sound system that really lets your other speakers do their jobs cause it handles the dialogue just fine.
