Having a quality center channel certainly makes a difference.

Summary: I recently upgraded from a packaged home theater in a box center channel to the Polk TSi CS10, and wow, what a difference it makes. I had focused on upgrading my front stereo speakers, but I never realized what I was missing in movies and TV by not having a quality center channel.
Good center, unreal price! Good for small shelves when angled properly !

Summary: I just purchased the Polk CS10 and it is by far the best sounding center channel I have ever heard and blows away the old Infinity that it replaced! Not only does it sound great but it looks great as well with piano black finished side panels.
Pros: Decided to start from scratch with a new system. sold all my old equipment and started ordering stuff. All I have so far is the receiver, and this center speaker. I have a polk soundbar in my bedroom and honestly it sounds no where near as good as just this speaker alone does. and thats including...
Summary: This center channel is one of the clearest and most defined that I have heard. I listened to quite a few different models from different companies over a three or four week time span. I compared other companies products and even different models from polk and decided to get the TSi CS10.
Summary: I purchased from Amazon a few months ago and am very satisfied with the performance of this center channel speaker. I replaced a Sony center channel speaker and the difference is very significant. It's a large speaker but fits nicely on the shelf below my plasma tv, next to the A/v receiver.
Summary: This center channel is so clear an crisp the sound is excellent. I recommend this series TSI . For the price to anyone who wants a great sound for the buck I'm considing purchasing the rest of the TSI series to complete my system. The reveiws i read here were right on the money.
Summary: This is the second Polk Center I purchased. The first one was for my bedroom and this one is for the living room. They have great range, are efficient and do not take long to loosen up! I like these better than some of the more expensive ones that I have listened to.
Pros: I recently upgraded my old 2 channel system to a 5.1 system using this as a center speaker and can't believe how full and crisp voices are watching movies now. I didn't realize before what i was missing.
Summary: The cons are minor, just check the assembly when you buy. But definitely buy this. The biggest concern with this purchase is how UPS handled the packaging. Newegg needs to start double boxing their products. The factory packaging arrived scuffed and dented. Luckily nothing was damaged.
Pros: Great sound/vocals. Handles the power from my Pioneer Elite VSX-32.
Cons: I had to loosen the right 5.25" driver a position it in the factory cut-out. It was tighten off-center. The other two drivers weren't even tighten in place.
