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.
Target your money on the center channel. Best bang for the buck.

Summary: I wanted a good sound system without spending a fortune, so here's what I did -- I bought a cheap Philips Home Theatre sound system with a decent power rating and replaced the center speaker with the CS1. The result is spectacular!
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.
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!
Summary: The TSi CS1 center speaker is a good match for my Polk Monitor Series II bookshelf speakers that I use for front right and left channels. These Polk speakers, together with a pair of rear speakers, provide wonderfully clean sound for my TV and listening to music.
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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: If you are looking for something to really spice up your audio experience, this ain't it. The speaker does a decent job, but it won't change your world. My biggest complaint is size. Next time I will buy something much smaller.
