Pros: Sound is great. That is why you purchase a speaker right? The price was right. The odd shaped box allowed me to place it on the floor angled up. This gives you a little more bass than I care for.
Cons: It is big. Physics kind of dictates this. To get a rich sound, you really need a decent size box. No way to hang it on the wall. I have this paired with Pold TXI-100s which have keyhole brackets and standoffs so you can hang them off the wall. I wish I could do the same with this. I will need to ...
Summary: The size,quality of sound and finish make this speaker a best buy. I installed it on top of a big screen HD Tv with a separate shelf and wow the sound is great. The black grilles blend into the scenery along with the black sides of it. Great little speaker with big boy sound.
Summary: Was a little concerned when I opened the package and noticed only one input, my receiver has two center channels. By going through the manual on the receiver, I did find out how to use it with one input. The sound is very clean, good response throughout the range.
Pros: Sounds fantastic! Clear crisp sound. Good lows, not at all "brassy."
Cons: Too tall to put in front of TV without blocking part of the screen and blocks sound putting it behind tv so I can't exactly use it in the "center." If your tv is mounted to a wall then there's no problem. Still happy with it though, the sound is well worth it.
Summary: Not exactly a "con", but, as with any speaker, it might be difficult to match sound with existing speakers without hearing this unit. Consider adding similar Polk free-standing units with similar drivers. A sub is a must.
Pros: Good, clean vocals, which is the point with a center channel speaker. Build is very solid. Removable grille is a plus. Ability to flip over and direct sound at an angle is a cool feature.
Cons: Ordering sound eqipment on-line is analgous to getting a monitor or LCD TV without seeing it. The inability to test-drive the speaker may be an issue for some.
Pros: The sound from this speaker is very clear. Both speach and music sound like the real thing. Appears to be very well made with no physical defects. As always excellent service and shipping from Newegg.
Cons: Other than it is a little large, no cons. I knew when I ordered it that it was going to be big.
