Unbeatable at this price!!! 03/09/2011
This review is from: Polk Audio CS1 Series II Center Channel Speaker (Black) Single
Very efficiant, crisp and clean.
The first day I had this hooked up, I was just testing it out and had movie playing. I left the room so I turned it down to a level that I would not have been able to hear speaking with my previous center channel. When I walked back in the room I couldn't beleive that I could hear clearly what was happening. And things only get better when you turn the volume up!! I still can't beleive I picked this thing up for $70!!
You would have to spend hundreds more to obtain a center that would outdo this one.
Do yourself a favor and pic up one of these with a few of the matched monitor bookshelf or floorstanders.
Price to performance is unmatched in my experience with HT speakers.
BTW I have the Monitor 50 & 30's with JBL sub running off of HK avr230.
