Bottom Line:   
After using my RCA 50W/channel surround system for 6 years, I decided it was time for an upgrade. After listening to many different sat/sub systems (Bose, Infinity, JBL, Polk) and reading the reviews, I settled on the RM6700 system with the PSW404 (10", 200W) sub. The system sounds great in my 12x14 family room and the sub is more than enough to fill the room. The PSW303 had to be turned up to 3/4 volume before providing any noticeable base whereas the 404 is set at 50% volume and I can hear it in other rooms.

Music and movies sound great paired with my Pioneer VSX-711S receiver, but the center channel is slightly less crisp than my previous JBL N-Center II (dual 5", 3/4" tweeter). The lows on the JBL, with a 5" vs 4" woofer, were better and the voices were clearer with the JBL, but with a few adjustments on the receiver (+2dB output to the center), the output was clear and the voices could be heard over the music/effects tracks.

Overall, after 1 month, I am very happy with the Polk system and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a midrange sat/sub system. If you have a few more bucks to spend, step up to the RM 7200's, but stick with the PSW404. For the price it is one of my favorite subs.

Bottom Line:   
I have these speakers hooked to the PSW303 with a Sony 595 and they sound phenomenal. I am very research oriented, so I spent a lot of time researching on the web and listening to several speaker sets (Bose, Sony, Yamaha, etc). There was no real comparison. I know that you can only get so much from listening in the audio room at CC, but these sounded heads and shoulders above the others. They had a movie playing and I could hear things through these that I couldn't even hear with the others. I have to agree with the previous message that the PSW303 is a must. I purchased the speakers with the PSW303 and am so glad that I did. It was well worth the $100 extra. I play all kinds of music through them and the sounds are so rich. Then when we pop a DVD in and watch it big screen, it is 10 times better than going to the movies. We don't even go to the movies any longer because these speakers along with the TV are so much better. Friends are constantly amazed when we watch movies how great the sound is. I would highly recommend at least listening to them if you are searching for speakers.

Bottom Line:   
I've had this setup with a Sony DE1075 (110 X 6) receiver for about 8 months. I received the PSW202 free with the setup, which has been less than optimal...more on that later. The satellites and center channel, however, are fantastic. You can tell by the weight of them that despite their small size they are tight units and well constructed. More importantly, the sound. I use the system for dvd-a and also concert dvd's as well as movies in surround sound and they are quite musical. They will play LOUD without any problems whatsoever, and stay pretty crisp and coherent in the process. The 202 subwoofer is underpowered, underwhelming, and lets the rest of the system down (and is as of now in for service because it quit working), go for the 303 or larger sub. For the price, i've found the 6700 setup to be great for my medium sized room. Friends are always impressed, and it the sound just adds so much to my home-entertainment experience. Setup was quite easy.
