Summary: yamaha rx v467 bose 201 front this center polk owm3 rear polk psw110 sub
Pros: got my new system hooked up, put in a movie, and we sat there amazed that we could hear everything that was said so clearly. it even made my wife admit it was a good investment. also like the option for banana plug connections.
Cons: bigger than i thought. even though i had the dimensions and kind of measured it out, it was still bigger than i had figured. but that's what you get when you get big speakers. glad i didn't get the next one up. this sounds just fine.
Summary: I was going to purchase the BOSE center channel speaker for $179. Went to a "box store" to check the sound quality & they had the Polk Audio CS10 speaker there. Huge difference. Th Bose sounded weak & hollow. I'm now convinced BOSE is all marketing to justify their high prices.
Summary: I have this on a Pioneer 770w 7.1 receiver with some Polk Monitor series for the other channels. I am thrilled with my new setup! As always, newegg's level of service continues to impress! UPS even dropped my speakers off a day before the tracking said that my order would arrive.
Pros: Great full-range sound! I've heard plenty of "higher end" speakers, and this center channel performs just as well, if not better. The clarity is phenomenal, even at higher volumes, and the sound is very well balanced. It happens too often that center channels have highs that are too bright or mid...
Summary: I have a 7.1 theater system, being pushed by a Sony head unit. I had upgraded all of my speakers except for the center channel. I was using an off brand thing I found at a pawn shop. Dialog was muffled and my dad could never understand what was being said.
Summary: I bought this product to replace a 10 year old Cambridge Soundworks Center Plus speaker. A co-worker who's and audiophile recommended this product. Because I originally paid $250+ for the Cambridge center years ago I figured I'd have to spend the same type of $.
Summary: Just replaced an older and smaller center channel with the CS10 Center Channel and it sounds great. Can't get over the $100.00 value on this center for my application (secondary surround system in master bedroom). My older center channel lacked bass and was set up as a small speaker.
