Bottom Line:   
Love the overall sound transmission from front to rear and side to side. The sound is clear and accurate. Isolated them with Aurelex Mopads and they came alive. Just purchased one more for Rear Surround 6.1, for the $ it's the best deal out there. You won't be disappointed.

Bottom Line:   
I first heard these speakers in a demo launch event at my local dealer, and EVERY one of us that heard the Lobby Scene in The Matrix was blown away by the improvement in the surround field, richness, and depth these speakers made, in comparison to PSB's own Image 1B (my previous rear speaker, which wasn't too shabby). I traded my 1B's in for the 10S's there and then. The 10S sounds like a much larger speaker than the 1B, despite having the same drivers (though 2 sets of each!). Recently, I rearranged my listening room for much improved sound, and I found that mounting the 10S speakers on the wall behind the listening position greatly improved the sound for 5.1 soundtracks, in comparison to my previous arrangement with the speakers on stands directly to the side of the listening position (similar to how I first heard the speakers, actually).

Now that I've upgraded my front speakers from PSB Stratus Bronze & C6i center to Thiel CS1.6 & SCS3 center, however, I'm less enthusiastic about the PSB's. In their price class, though, they're very good. On the other hand, with multichannel audio (DTS music CD's, DVD-A, SACD, etc.) becoming more prevalent, I'm not sure bipolar surrounds are the best way to go. Don't ever try listening to stereo music through a pair of PSB 10S, e.g., or you'll wish you hadn't upgraded from monopole PSB 1B's! And while the quality is great for the price, there are certainly better speakers out there (for more money); Thiel and JM-Lab are some examples.

Looks good, sounds good! I already had PSB Image 6Ts and a Subsonic 6 so I found that the 10s fit right in.

Bottom Line:   
PSB is consistant in providing quality sound throughout their speaker line. The 10S speakers have great imaging for music and movies, especially if there is alot of movement like an singer pacing back and forth on stage. The Bipolar design helps give great directional sound from DTS signals on DVDs.

Bottom Line:   
These surrounds are great. They perform very well with the PSB 6T fronts and 9C center. The surround effects are awesome and you can't pinpoint where they originate, unless the soundtrack wants you to (newer tracks may have some localization in the programing). Could not be happier anywhere near this price range.
