Summary: OK, so I just moved into a new apartment and my 'den' area is quite small - about 12' x 12'. I didn't need gigantic speakers so I went looking 'small' and found that these speakers had good reviews. After living with them for 6 days now, I can say that I am more than pleased with the sound - the subwoofer even had to be turned down a bit, it was so overwhelming.
Summary: I bought this set up for myself after my wife gave me a new Sony receiver for my birthday. The speakers sound great and movies are a pleasure to watch with the upgrade from may last home theater system. Im certainly no "audiophile", but I do like my movies and music to sound good and I did do a fair amount of research. These seemed to be a solid set of speakers for $250.
Summary: I spent a lot of time reviewing surround sound speakers to hook up to my Sony STR-K840P receiver. Most of the reviews for this set were 4-5 stars, so decided to get them. Looks like it was a very good decision. I'm using them in a fairly large room, and the sound is amazing. They also look great on the wall. I decided to do an "in-wall" installation to hide the wires, so the bracket mounting template was a real plus.
Summary: This speaker system is my first 5.1 surround powered by my new Denon AVR 1612. Great value for a mid entry level speaker system, BIG sound without the need of big speakers, perfect size speakers that I have in my bedroom, also the 8" powered subwoofer is just right for the size of my bedroom. Well worth the price. I Highly recommend.
Summary: Just had to come on here and brag about this awesome system. I set it up in my bedroom with a Denon AVR-1612 surround sound receiver and .... i'm speechless ... purely AWESOME!! For the money, this system is as good as any on the market. I would never spend big money on a surround sound system or high end bookshelf speakers. This is crystal clear with thumping bass ... i'm very happy!!! Gotta go listen to some more music now ... BUY THIS and you won't be sorry!!
Summary: It was time to replace my old Sony home theater system. I had researched several models including Energy, Klipsch, and these Polks. Since I had already spent more than I wanted to on the AV receiver (Yamaha RX-V871), I chose to go with the Polks because of the price, specs, and reviews I had read here and elsewhere. I was definitely not disappointed. The speakers are of superb quality!
Summary: I recently hooked these speakers up to a new Pioneer receiver / amp. Everyone in our family likes these. The Amp came with an auto tuning microphone that set each speaker and the sound is great. I especially liked the speaker mounts that come with it. If I have to say one negative thing its that the center channel speaker mount is tough to mount because you cannot access the screws once you slide the mount in place. But once in place they sound great.
Summary: Just a quick testimonial/anecdotal review without technical specs or details. I bought this system at $500 and felt I got a great deal. At $219, these are a steal, and I wish I had an excuse to buy another set. I'm tempted to buy another set just to keep in the box until some future time that I might need an excellent set of small surround speakers. I don't know of a better surround system for just over two hundred dollars.
