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'm on a budget, so I'm gradually upgrading my 5.1 surround sound system as I go. My original center speaker was a speaker from a low-powered Aiwa bookshelf stereo system. Needless to say, I was not happy with that configuration.
Summary: Purchased with Sony A/V 5.1 receiver to augment Sony Bravia TV. Rather than purchase a center-bar speaker that has the same puny sound as the TV itself this set-up gives full, rich sound to my video set-up.
