Polk's Monitor Series has been the gold standard of speakers since the 1970's. The CS1 center channel is a perfect accompaniment with accurate sound with strong bass and exception aural imaging. Polk made the enclosures out of MDF to be uniform in density and not resonate. They've also included ¾" thick baffles to help produce clear lifelike sound.
The two 6.5" cones are made from a bi-laminate composite for an optimal balance of weight and rigidity. The small driver delivers a wide open sound and exceptional responsiveness. The 1" tweeter is a fabric/polymer composite the responds swiftly to the high efficiency Neodymium magnet. The crossovers between the drivers use Mylar bypass capacitors to let all of the details in the higher frequencies shine through.
No matter how good they sound, they have to look good too. Their contemporary look compliments today's flat panel televisions and modern decorating styles. They are magnetically shielded so you can place them near your electronics.
I have this. It's a great speaker and awesome at this price.

What about this vs the CS2 series II that has the same base retail price? The only I difference I see in Newegg's product comparison tool is the series II has low-end on frequency response @ 50Hz vs this one's 55Hz. You don't use center channel for that much bass anyway (should be offloaded to a sub).

Series II has a black front instead of silver. From what I understand everything else is identical.
