The name “Monitor” is special to Polk Audio. The original Polk Audio Monitor Series, produced in the mid-1970s, ushered in the modern loudspeaker era by setting the standard for performance and value. The original Monitor Series is the line that made Polk Audio famous with its simple, sturdy construction, clear, accurate sound, powerful bass and superior imaging all at a price that made great sound available to everyone.

The newly reborn Monitor Series is classic Polk: a quality-built, affordable line of high performance loudspeakers for music and home theater. They are highly efficient, so they can be driven easily by unpretentious receivers and they are voice matched for lifelike surround sound environments. The Monitor Series boasts a stylish contemporary look, modern Titanium faces, and bold stabilizer feet on the tower models. Built for speed, sound quality and value, the Monitor Series is a great introduction to high performance sound. The CS2 center speaker has been designed to be the perfect match for Monitor Series speakers in multi-channel systems.

very good

Pros: I can hear all the movie dialogs now. I had 2 Polk monitor 60 for front.
they are really good, but I would miss conversation while watching movies.
I was wondering what is missing. Then one of comments I read that movies 60% dialogs come through Center. So I got one. You have to have it. It is preety good. do not hesitate if you are looking for one.

Cons: none

Polk Audio fan

Pros: Great sound at low volumes (as others have stated). Crisp and handles power without distortion. For the price, this was a great buy. I use this center, 2x polk monitor 70's, and 2x polk vm-10's, in my back room, to listen to vinyl. I am happy with this buy and this setup continuously causes my wife to come in the room and turn the volume down lower (this isn't an issue for me).

Cons: It is a big center. I didn't check the weight and size of this prior to receiving it. If you don't have a lot of space for a center, don't buy this one (I was able to make room). If you have small l and r speakers, you setup will look strange.

Other Thoughts: I told the wifey to crank up the onkyo/polks/epik setup, in the den, to combat the greatness coming from the back room. Strangely, she didn't find my statement funny.

Poor first impression

Pros: Sounds amazing. Audio is full and crisp. Fine details can be heard even at low volume levels, unlike the cheap 5.1 speakers I originally purchased when I got my receiver.

Cons: There is a loose wooden piece inside the speaker. I heard something rattling around just as I was getting ready to set it up on my entertainment shelf. Shining a flashlight inside the port revealed a wooden block with glue on one side, which obviously came loose. Could have happened during shipping, which is not necessarily Polk Audio's fault, but...it still fails to inspire confidence. Also, as mentioned in other reviews, this thing is HUGE. I mean, seriously...wow. My fault for not paying more attention to the listed dimensions, but I thought, "Surely it can't be more than double the size of my current speakers...right?" Wrong. It's huge. I'm going to need at least some bookshelf speakers to go with this at some point, because my current L/R speakers look tiny and ridiculous next to it.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't even in the market for a new center channel speaker, but I hit up Newegg fairly regularly to see what kind of deals are available, and saw this. I was reading through the reviews out of curiosity, but then Jude M.'s caught my eye. I'm in the exact same boat - to hear dialogue, I have to crank the sound way up. I live in an apartment and have children, which makes TV/movie watching difficult post-bedtime. Not anymore. Audio is crisp and detailed, even at lower volumes. Easily a 5-star product, but I knocked 2 eggs off for my defective unit.

Great center

Pros: Bought to complete my surround setup. Great center, clear, and creates a nice sound stage with the other polk towers

Cons: it is pretty big, but that isn't really a bad thing if you have space for it.

Other Thoughts: Polk monitor 70 front towers, 60 back, and this for the center makes a nice surround setup. Paired with two of the polk 12' subs and my house is a heck of a theater.
