Summary: After having operated the CS10 for more than a month I can say without equivocation that this center speaker operates very well indeed. What I was seeking was clarity of voice and that's what i got. This Polk lives up to the reputation of the manufacturer. This modestly priced system performs well above expectations. It's a value, think of that in this modern economic climate.
Pros: The ability to flip the speaker over to elevate the sound field was a great idea.
Summary: I am using this product as a center back speaker in a 6.1 surround system. It does a wonderful job of bring to life flyovers, storms, sea sounds and every other audio surround element. It is excellent at bridging my left and right surround speakers for complete wrap around sound. This speak brings the lows of my powered subwoofer around quite well also for great low end surround effect.
Pros: This product delivers very crisp and clean sound and easily handles the 120 watts my Sony ES receiver and DSP delivers.
Cons: the low end frequency response could drop a bit although with a powered sub woofer the 80 hertz bottom end does well.
Summary: Once again, so impressed with Polk Audio & Crutchfield. Absolutely Love this center channel. Finally able to upgrade from an older Optimus center & now paired with my Polk TSi 100's and Denon receiver this speaker has brought new life to movies & music. Feel like I need to watch all my favorites again just to enjoy this new addition. Thanks again Polk and Crutchfield.
Pros: Beautiful build quality. Heavy. Feels solid and well made. Looks like it is more expensive than it is.
