Summary: If you're like me and are looking for crisp dialogue and a natural tone from your center, and you're not getting it...GET THIS!
Pros: I don't have money to burn, but I like decent sound. I bought a set of Fluance speakers, (little money but lots of research time!) and added 2 Polk PSW10's, but the center was WEAK. I finally couldn't stand it anymore, and after reading MANY reviews, went with a Polk CS10. Man, where do I start! ...
Cons: None for me, but it's pretty darn big, and weighs about 20lbs.
Summary: I got Monitor 60's and the CS10 for $340. Those speakers go for $800 at Best Buy. Newegg is the best. I find myself checking this site a few times a day. Polk audio has a wonderful softer sound. Not to sharp. BUY ANYTHING POLK. You can't go wrong.
Pros: Perfect fit. I recently got the monitor 60's and needed something to replace my old Infinity center which had on 2.5 woofer. Boy this sure does the trick. I have the 60's with the CS10, a 12" Velodyne sub powered by a Pioneer VSX1019 receiver. Also have the PS3 for my BD. Sound is simply amazing.
Summary: I am a home audio/visual amateur and certainly not a techie. About a year ago I purchased a Panasonic 50" Plasma HDTV. Although my home has built-in surround sound speakers in the ceiling, the rest of my system consisted of castoffs and mismatched speakers acquired over a long period of years.
Pros: This speaker brings much more clarity and presence to the show compared to my old Yamaha center. But a warning, if you think you're going to sneak this into the setup without the wife noticing, think again, it will get noticed.
Cons: just one, trying to figure out where to put it.
Summary: UPS delivered without a scratch. Great deal.
Pros: Sounds great, looks great. It'll make your Monitor series jealous because of their looks, but they actually sound very similar. Sounds is in your face if you have it positioned and setup correctly.
Summary: The clarity of the speaker is great. I can't imagine a better speaker for the price.
Pros: I have the speaker hooked up to a yamaha rxv-861b receiver and it sounds great. I also have 2 older jensen Ls-6b front speakers and the cs10 blends in smoothly. I am very pleased with voice sound in my blue ray movies. I need much less volume to hear voices in movies. I highly recommend this cent...
Cons: the size of the speaker. I was able to move the speaker to the top shelf of my stereo stand. If you want this speaker to be placed in front of your tv you better make sure you will have enough room for it.
Summary: The sound might be a little 'bright' for some tastes, but for crisp dialog and punchy sound effects it's perfect and blends seamlessly with the other speakers in my setup. If you're watching movies, gaming or listening to music in surround, the center speaker is the most important.
Pros: This is a pretty amazing speaker for the price. It has brought new life to my surround system. The sound is clear, and the craftsmanship is impeccable. It has the feel of a quality piece of equipment down to the grill mounting.
Summary: Starting to build up my home theater. Recently ordered a pair of Monitor 40s for my rear surround.
Pros: I am very pleased with this purchase. The sound coming from my center channel is amazing, and helps to make the movie-watching experience a lot better. I was prepared for the large size, and I realize the size is critical in producing the great sound.
Cons: I have nothing bad to say about this product.
