Watch a lot of movies but enjoy rock n roll music also. Thanks a bunch.
The Polks are good speakers for the money, particularly for the prices you can get them for at Newegg during sales. I had them and enjoyed them very much. In fact I am still using the 70's and 30's in a bedroom setup. I eventually updated to Paradigm Studios for my living room and office which I love, but they were many times the cost of the Polks. They (Polks) are pretty efficient speakers too, so your receiver should drive them pretty well.
