** 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.
-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.
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.
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.
