Summary: I bought the Polk Audio CS1 three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the sound clarity. The speaker's size is perfect for home entertainment. Overall, I'd recommend it if you're on a budget.
Summary: I guess I should tell everyone that they should by the speaker. I believe I alluded to that in the "Pros" but I just want to make sure that everyone knows where I stand. Hail Newegg!!!
Pros: I can not believe Newegg exists. I keep buying from them and can not get over the product that I am getting for the price. Here is another example of great quality at a cheap price. This center channel speaker rocks! It actually makes my overall surround system sound better. I replaced it with my...
Summary: The sound that comes out of this thing is great but I was surprised by how big it is in real life. Its almost the same size as your standard 5.1 reciever... big enough that its actually ported which I thought was strange for a center.
Summary: The reason I give this speaker 4 stars is because of the poor specifications in the instructions manual. When I ordered the CS1 I wasn't sure about its power rarting or impedance. To my surprise, the manual does not mention POWER and only states "compatible" with 8 ohm systems.
Summary: I Purchased This Speaker From NewEgg At A Price That Is Unmatched For A Brand New,Factory Sealed Model!Possibly and Probably The Best Performing And Constructed Center Channel For Its Price From Any Brand. 5-Way Binding Posts.Rear Bass Port.
Pros: Beautiful Craftsmanship With Awesome Piano Black Laquer End Caps. Outstanding Performance,Crisp,Detailed Voices and Amazing Center Channel Effects. Delicate Enough To Cleanly And Clearly Hear The Slightest Whisper Or Rain Drop; While Strong Enough To Project Loud Explosions And Booming Thunder Wi...
Cons: At This Price,Performance,And Build Quality:NONE!
Summary: Pair this with some nice mains and you'll be set for quite awhile. Also, man Newegg ships fast, ordered on Tuesday afternoon, got delivery on Thursday. Good times right thar.
Pros: Sound from these speakers cannot be beat for this price range, or probably even higher priced units. It complimenta my TSi100's perfectly, nice clear dialogue from movies and TV programs. Seriously, if you're in need of a great center channel speaker, just get this one, you will not be dissapointed.
Cons: Rather large, not really a con tho. Well, I guess it would be nice if it would make me a sandwich but hey, can't win 'em all.
Summary: This speaker if it matches my B&Ws then it will probably complement most systems.
Pros: So far, so good. It's been wonderful to actually hear speaking and details on DVD movies. I had an expensive B&W center channel speaker in my system. It puts the B&W to shame. And it stands up to my B&W Mk7s with thier boomy base very well. I thought it'd be business as usual with those loud some...
Cons: Maybe a little too wide. But not too tall for most.
