Great compact speaker system

 

Superb sound from such a small speaker, both music and cinema sources. Sub-woofer literally shakes the room. Price to value ratio is unbeatable. Only issue for me was the location of the mounting holes on the speaker bottom. Purchased the whole system...

Sound quality ; Compact ; Nice finish

Mounting holes located on the bottom, not the back

You get what you pay for..

 

I have two other surround systems, both cost a lot of money and sound amazing. You absolutely get what you pay for.

There were cheap, and the package came with a good Yamaha receiver

At lower volumes the Polk sound is muffled, and at all volumes the vocal or speach is not crisp or clear

Awesome is all I can say

 

What a deal! These speakers are just awesome. Sound is amazing for speakers in this price range. My movies now sound better than they ever have. I highly recommend this setup, it will definitely be an improvement over an aging set of speakers.

Polk

 

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...

Price..

 

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
