Bottom Line:   
Great center. Compact, but powerful . Verygood for audio or audio/visual playback. Have owned this since 2002 with no problems. Someone made comment that the cs400 and cs400i are identical, this is incorrect. They are the same other than the tweeter, drivers, and crossovers... LOL CS400i have much warmer, fuller tone/sound. I give full recommendation for this center.

This is the best center channel I have heard so far. I do A B test with Martin Logan, paradigm, Dunlevy, and to my surpise, this polk had a best sound. I run a lexicon preamp powered by adcom amps with Vandersteen mains.

I actually have the polk cs400 center, but i just want to comment on this one too. I know that they are identical. This speaker is awesome. nuff said. I posted on the polk cs400, rti100's and the rt1000i's. All of these speakers sound great. Polk makes some of the best damn speakers around. especially in it's price class. Nothing can compare.

Wow !! What a great center. I'd thought about buying this center to get me through until I was ready to spend a wad on speakers but I think it just might stay where it's at. It's a good addition to a speaker set up with the rt55i's I've got for fronts.

System:
Mitsubishi 55" rear projection.
Denon 3802 receiver.
Polk rt55' fronts.
Polk cs400i center.
Polk fx500 surrounds and backs.
Velodyne Sub.(Awesome!!!)
