This review is from: Polk Audio RM510 5.1 CH High Performance Home Theater Speaker System
Pros: Great Speakers for a regular size room. Crisp Highs, Sub has good punch for price point. Clear audio for a range of audio, such as Surround Sound Movie, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Rock, Jazz. Speakers are perfect size and weight and feel very substantial. Comes with wall mount brackets, but does not come with Screws or wall anchors. They do come with bolts for mounting speaker to bracket, along with another set of bolts, I'm assuming could be used for screwing into existing wall anchors (Although they seem on the small side). I used Wood Screws to mount all but center, which I used the table stand for (Comes with both wall mount and table stand). Includes 2 R8, 2 R7, 1 Center, and PSW110 Sub. I used R8 for rear surround sound and R7 for Front L&R as R8 has two sets of speakers and are non-directional (for sound effects). The R8's also come with small floor stands if not wall mounting and wanting to stick on shelf. The R7's do not, but sit flush and don't need them. I got these for my Daughter's room along with a wall mounted 40 Inch TV, and my old Onkyo Receiver so she could hook up her computer to play games and watch movies. She really wanted a system to crank when she is listening to music... and wanted to feel the base. She is extremely happy with this setup once I turned the base up on the sub to a little over half. Her room is on the second story, and unfortunately I can feel her music downstairs now :). I actually am considering buying the R8's for my living room to replace my tower speakers I am currently using for surround sound, so my wife quits complaining about the room they take up. Overall, Great Speakers.
Cons: Although it comes with wall brackets, doesn't come with wall anchors, or stud screws. Doesn't include speaker cable (no biggie as I'd prefer to buy my own, but some might find this as a negative), Center Channel wall mount seems to be designed for in wall cabling and looks as though it will pinch the speaker cable if you don't use in wall, but I did not actually use it so I may be mistaken. Got it with a 50 dollar mail in rebate, which still haven't received word on from Newegg or Polk on status, and one week later they went on sale for the same price I would have got with the 50 dollar mail in rebate, ie without the mail in hassle.
Other Thoughts: Great speakers for a dorm room, to a medium sized living room.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does what it says, works like a champ, 2133 no problem on Asus Extreme V Motherboard, just make sure to select XMP setting.
Cons: None so far. put together on Christmas. The only thing was that My Brother got 2 8 gig module set (16 gig) for cheaper than I paid for these by like 20 dollars, enough that I would have ordered 2 sets to have 32 gig instead of 16 gig. Oh well.
Other Thoughts: Went with this set as it was "tested" by Asus with the board I got. It works like a champ.READ FULL REVIEW
