The Enclosure These stunning little speaker are a sophisticated work of acoustic alchemy. First, there's the Reuleaux Triangular Polygon enclosure. We didn't construct them this way just for looks, even though they do look pretty cool. And we didn't do it just so we can say “Reuleaux,” even though that's pretty cool, too. Truth is, this specially designed shape is extremely strong. Plus its geometry is acoustically ideal for minimizing resonances and standing waves inside the speaker. This eliminates the “boominess” that makes other small speakers sound “muddy,” and delivers superior midrange performance and lifelike imaging.

Anti-Diffraction Baffle Exhaustively tested and modeled to produce the sophisticated acoustic sculpting, the anti-diffraction baffle delivers the largest possible dispersion pattern with virtually no edge diffraction or distortion. The wide, lifelike soundstage proves that you can have small speakers without sacrificing big sound.

Composite Driver Technology Working in tandem with the shape of the compact enclosures are specially engineered drivers made from strong composite materials. Polk Audio's patented Dynamic Balance technology scientifically tunes these driver materials to produce an excellent flat frequency response, with revealing detail, transparent imaging and the ability to play loud without strain, something you won't find in other small speaker systems. RM sound is always clean, clear and effortless. After all, we’re the company that invented Big Speaker Sound Without The Big Speaker®.

Multiple Mounting Options Put them on the TV stand. Put the center channel speaker right on the TV. Put them on stands next to the TV. Hang the speakers on the walls. Use articulating brackets to aim them perfectly. RM 705 satellites weigh just 3 lbs, so you can put them virtually anywhere and move them easily.

Powerful Bass Blending perfectly completing the home theater experience. The 8-inch downward firing powered subwoofer, small enough to be discretely hidden away, yet powerful enough to put you in the action.

why you should consider this product

For those who want real home theater surround sound without sacrificing their décor, the RM705 offers elegant styling and outstanding performance. This matched 5.1 channel home theater loudspeaker system, consisting of 4 compact satellites, a center channel and a powered subwoofer, delivers startlingly lifelike big speaker sound for your movies, music, gaming and TV. All from a speaker you can hold in the palm of your hand. For even more depth and detail, add another pair of satellites for 7.1 surround.

*To ensure a valid warranty, Polk loudspeakers must be purchased through an Authorized Polk Audio home or car loudspeaker Dealer (such as Amazon.com). (If you're not sure a dealer is "authorized," call Polk Audio at 1-800-377-7655, and ask us.) The warranty is not transferrable, that means it applies only to the original purchaser. If you purchase your speakers from a private individual, that product is considered "used" and has NO factory warranty, no matter what the seller implies. The warranty is VOID if the serial number of the speaker has been removed or defaced. If you have any questions about your warranty coverage, or you think you need service, call Polk Customer Service at 1-800-377-7655. We’re here to help you get the most from your new speakers!

I usually look at these reviews to help me with my purchases, so it's only fair that I write one to help someone else. I just purchased this speaker system and I'm blown away. The sound is so clean and crisp and very bright. I have this connected to a Yamaha RX-V661 and the sound is amazing. This is perfect for a medium to large room. If you want a BIG sound without the bulk and the high cost, I highly recommend this. The set up was easy. The brackets provided also comes with a paper template for easy wall mounting. The screws/hardware are also included and looks great. If you're using a high gauge speaker wire, the +/- inputs (holes) on the back of each speaker are a very small and somewhat difficult to connect. Other than that, I'm going to really enjoy this system.

I looked at buying the RM6750 for a long time but eventually decided on this system. It was a little more expensive but the look and smaller sized speakers made it well worth it. The RM6750 has a fairly bulky center speaker and larger satellite speakers. The RM705 is sleek and modern looking. The sound is awesome, crystal clear and beautiful. I have a fairly large room. I had read some complaints that the subwoofer is not loud enough. Well, how loud do you need it. The bass booms and I ony have it turned up half way. I have nothing but good things to say about this system. Great system for the price. Go out and buy it, you'll be happy.

These speakers are wonderful; I wanted a good speaker system set and I took a look at forums but I'm happy I got these for about 300.

Pros:
-Subs is perfect for me
-Speaker are very beautiful and match with TV
-Sound is amazing; now I can hear the bits and the bangs of my blu-ray movies
-I have no cons so far

Tricks for good sound from these bad boys:
-Turn the sub's cross over all the way up
-Turn the phase nob to 0 degrees
-Turn the receivers cross over to 80hz

When you are done, listen to the system and if there is not enough boom from the sub turn the channel level setting on the receiver for the sub a little bit. Listen to it, turn sub level, listen and so on until you find your taste.

I purchased these along with a Pioneer VSX-920K 7.1 receiver, and it was an excellent decision. I've been running them for 5 months now and have been blown away by the audio quality and power. Setup was a breeze, but make sure you use a good quality, heavy speaker wire. I listen to almost every kind of music. Classical, Heavy Metal, Jazz, Meditation, Rock, Blues, Country, etc. It all sounds excellent! Highs are crisp and clean, mid ranges has excellent punch and doesn't sound flat, and the lows and subs are very solid and beefy. I liked them so much (especially at the price) that I'm planning on putting a set of these into another room in our house.

** Update 10/26/2011
Fantastic and painless warranty service. In September the center speaker developed some crackle. I put off for a couple weeks dealing with it because normally dealing with audio or electronics warranty are a nightmare. Not in this case! I contacted them via email, described the problem and my troubleshooting steps, and waited. A couple hours later I received a request regarding where I purchased the speakers. I responded, they sent me an address and instructed me to ship it to their repair facility in CA. I shipped it out on Tuesday morning along with a copy of my Amazon receipt, copies of my email correspondence, and a cover letter. They received it Friday afternoon. Monday morning at 9:30 AM (their time!) I received an email stating they replaced the mid-range driver, and asking where would I like it shipped! They had it and repaired it in less than a business day, and they shipped it out the next morning. I received it 7 days later, and it works as good as new. Polk's quality and customer service has made me a lifetime customer.

after reading the reviews here i bought these speakers. very impressed. pleasant surprise to how small they were. yet they sound very full in every way. great sub provides perfect balance. i heard sound i couldn't hear from the other speakers i replaced. i have a friend that raves about his BOSE. i have watched several films at his house and his system is very pleasant. he spent over a $1000 for his speakers. he watched IMAX super speedway at my house and was blown away. he has the same film but heard wind,gear changes and clearer more natural voices with the POLKS. this just proves that you don't have to spend thousands to get great sound. i also played several types of music to get a good idea of range. i could not find anything that these speakers couldn't handle.
speakers are small and solid. very easy to put anywhere. the sub is large but this is a good. you can hide it behind your tv or couch. on the back of the sub is a volume control and you can fine tune how much bass you want.(it will thump if you want or not) it will also power your left and right speakers if needed. very simple instructions for set up with any 5.1 receiver. lots of flexibility with this system.

When ordering this Polk HTS, I reminded myself not to expect something unrealistic. At this price point, I think a realistic expectation is that you will get a 5.1 sound system which will adequately fill a small to medium sized room with quite accurate soud rendition, but it will be at least one level below a Boston Acoustics, Klipsch or Bose sound system.

The product arrived on time and in good condition. I hooked it up to a Yamaha HTR-5840 Receiver with the intent of reproducing good quality sound from my Samsung Blue-ray DVD and Samsung HD 4650 TV (I had spent almost as much as the Polk HTS buying monstercable speaker wires and a few optics cables to supplement the quality of sound supply from the TV and blu-ray players). Polk supplies very little in the way of installation manuals / user guides with their product, but I had no trouble getting everything connected using the most current user guide from Yamaha for their receiver.

The sound quality is as expected, and a little better. You will not be instantly transported to the Royal Albert Hall when listening to this system, but the sound from bass (actually pretty good sub-woofer) all the way thrugh mid-range and into the high trebles is fine. With two satellite speakers positioned behind the listeners, the sound for the most current movies (whether live transmission or blu ray) is great and a substantial improvement over the standard sound you can expect even from a high-end TV's standard speakers. Crank the volume up, and there is very little distortion (unless of course you try to max it out).

All in all, for a few hundred bucks you get a very nice sound system that is adequate for every-day movie and TV viewing. Streaming Pandora also presented very well.
