So... I had a great family movie fest over the holidays watching POLAR EXPRESS, THE INCREDIBLES, ROBOTS, and WAR OF THE WORLDS with my array of Polks in the living room! When you got the jaws of the in-laws dropping, you know you are THE MAN! All of the kids just went nuts ("Wow, listen to that!" "Oooh, that is sooo coool!!" "Awesome!" "I can hear stuff behind me!" "Aaaaah!!")
I also heard from my brother-in-law's son, "Dad, when can we get a system?" (Tee-he-he!)
I cranked up the system quite a bit more than normal and the budget R50s, R30s, R15s, CSi3, and PSW12 showed no sign of strain being pushed by the H/K AVR635. They f'n rocked the room!! I know this forum and others criticize the Polk PSW12 subwoofers as being child's play, but I tell you what: watching WAR OF THE WORLD, they did not, I said NOT, bottom out! You still FELT the walls and floor rumble (and drinks ripple) from the tripods. It was a great experience watching everyone enjoying themselves with the home theater.
I've had this system since April, and I am still just as impressed now as I was when I purchased them.
Still lovin' my budget HT:
Polk R50s (Main)
Polk CSi3s (Center)
Polk R30s (Surround)
Polk R15s (Rear)
