I was originally unsure of purchasing a setup like this as I am used to tower speakers etc. This is probably the best investment I've made for my home theatre system.

Excellent sound quality

Newegg Rocks (With Deals)!


Also my house does not offer anything near the best conditions for sound reproduction. It has a ceramic tile floor in a huge open space, but no problem for the RM's. I did have to use the separate speaker adjustments in the receiver.

The Polk Audio RM705 5.1's, are a deal at ($249). They deliver sweet-clear sound driven with my little Yamaha RX V367. This receiver sounds the best it ever has, I've never had anything get this loud and maintain this level of accuracy and clearness....

The only complaint I have is with the audio industry neglect to find a plug-in method for all speaker wiring. The spring clips are far to much hassle especially with fine wire cable, why they stopped with the front speaker connections on the receiver...

If there wasn't a senseless 150 dollars added to the price-tag for Canadians, I'd totally be buying two sets of these babies.. One for my room and one for the family room.

I've owned Polka speakers before and I love them, great quality for the price

I just really wanted to point out something that reall bothered me.. For what ever reason they cost an extra 150 bucks to buy if you are using the Canadian newegg compared to the American one.. Which is the only thing preventing me from buying these. I...

Lound and Clear RM7 Rear Channels


I have Martin Logan Encore TF's for Front L/R and center. The ML center channel is the best center I have heard yet in the below 500 dollar range but Polk's are very close. Polk center channels are a LOT BIGGER though. If size is not a problem, go with...

I just bought 2 RM7 satellites from a different electronics store. I currently have Polk R50's as the rear channels. The R50's are very big but sound very good ; I was a little concerned as the RM7's are extremely small but had to check them out ; They...

None I can think of. I still can't believe they can be so loud. Not a con

Worth the Money


These speakers are small and easy to wall mount with the brackets that comes with the package. They sound great for their size. I am very happy with the performance of this system.

Small size and great sound

The wire connectors on the speakers do not hold tight thin wires. Regular speaker wires work well

All Around Good


Overall a very good 5.1 system. I look forward to adding an additional 2 speakers to go 7.1. Using it with a Sony DH-800.

The size and look of the speakers is excellent. They provide great sound for movies and good with music. When on sale, I don't think you can go wring with these

The sub does the job, but for my room (large open area, high ceiling), I could use a little more (but not much). Mostly when listening to music at the back of the room. When I watch movies in the middle, it works great. Again you can't beat the deal...

I've had them all. Sony, jvc, pioneer, klipsch, rca, kenwood, and maybe a couple of more theater systems I can't think of. Due to a series of unfortunate events, I had to put together a new theater system. I paired these speakers up with a panasonic...
