Summary: I ordered these to go with a Harmon Kardon receiver (AVR 1700) I found on a great clearance sale at Best Buy. They look beautiful, and I have no complaints about the sound. I'm not much of an audiophile, but I like my movies to sound good, and these are night-and-day different to listening to my...
Good entry level speakers that are better than home theater in a box kits.

Summary: This speaker system to me seems to be better quality than those you get in standard home theater in a box kits. This is the way to go... purchase a 5.1 speaker system and then choose your AVR separately.
Summary: Have had my Polk RM705 5.1 speaker system almost a month. Set up in 20 x 30 foot basement room with log walls and flat wood ceiling. The "four speakers" are all mounted high near ceiling, typical configuration for 5.1 setup, center speaker on floor below TV, and subwoofer at side of TV stand.
Summary: I had been looking around and reading up on surround speakers for several weeks before I settled on this system.This being my first set I wasn't overly optimistic because of everything I read on audio forums that most people weren't to high on entry level speaker systems.Well after getting these set...
Summary: Before I purchased this speaker set I browsed the reviews. I agree with what I read - The Sound is great and the speakers are attractive. I like the flexibility the SubWoofer provides to tweak the sound.
Summary: The RM series is Polk's answer to the 5.1 speaker systems you see at Best Buy or Fry's. The difference for me was the price and the quality of the speakers. The price on amazon and the Polk name should make this an easy decision for those looking for a high quality, good looking, and well priced 5.1...
Summary: Beware- The "Amazon Product Description" section, including the pictures, is for the Polk RM95 speaker system: Polk Audio RM95 5-Channel Home Theater System (Set of Five, Black) Thought I was getting what was described in this section but not the case.
Summary: I picked these up for use in my studio, for my computer. They sound spectacular and wish I made the switch from cheap $100 computer speakers to these years ago. They are connected to a Sony STR-DN1000 receive, which is connected to my Asus Xonar Essence STX via the optical out.
Summary: My current system in my living room is polk monitor 60's in the front, CS1 center, 30 rears, and psw505 sub. I purchased the first RM-705 for a friend and put them in a large room 18x25 and it is open to a large part of his house. These speakers are awsome!!!
Summary: This Unit is paired with a Yamaha RX-665. I live in apartment and i can feel the sound quality from all the satellite speakers. The only issue that drove me crazy is with 14Gauge wire, it was a nightmare to push the wire to the speakers..
