Summary: After having operated the CS10 for more than a month I can say without equivocation that this center speaker operates very well indeed. What I was seeking was clarity of voice and that's what i got. This Polk lives up to the reputation of the manufacturer. This modestly priced system performs well above expectations. It's a value, think of that in this modern economic climate.
Pros: The ability to flip the speaker over to elevate the sound field was a great idea.
Summary: I wanted to a center speaker to my existing 4.1 system and after researching extensively I went went this one and extremely happy with my decision. By adding this speaker to my setup the clarity and dialogue of shows, movies, video games is vastly improved. I'm a sound quality buff and this gets my approval.
Pros: Sounds amazing, looks great and everything I expected.
Cons: May be slightly large if trying to fit into a entertainment center.
Summary: I've been putting my system together by piecemeal, something here and something there as my budget would allow. I was shocked, in a pleasant way, when I got this Polk center speaker. Suddenly, I began to hear the slightest sound effects that I never knew were there before. Is as if I have a much more swanky system now. Polk is worth every penny.
Summary: To be honest my experience with this speaker is mixed. After unboxing, I discovered a loose part inside the speakers cabinet, rattling. I thought first thought of as a screw. It turned out that it was a fragment of a plastic tie. I spent quite some time to remove this part, which otherwise would have destroyed the speakers membranes sooner or later.
Pros: Good central speaker for the price, and would give at least four stars
Summary: This is an excellent center channel speaker at a great price. Crisp clear vocals, and great overall sound. Works well with Bose surround and rear speakers. Very pleased with this purchase and I would recommend this product. Be sure to measure available space before purchasing this center speaker.
