Summary: I'm very happy with the Polk center speaker with a few reservations. First, the good. I'm using the speaker as part of a surround sound system, with two Polk bookshelf speakers for front right/left, and a pair of generic speakers for the back surround (no subwoofer).
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: 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.
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...
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.
