In case anyone wanted to read it: Polk HTS12

They seemed quite impressed with it for its price point.

    VERY NICE review for sure!
    Thanks.

    Anybody with the Signature series might want to add one to match if they don't have something already.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I was thinking about a HTS-10 to replace my Velodyne, and after reading that, I think that is what I’ll go with, if the HTS-10 is anything like it’s big brother.
    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    NAD C352
    Monitor Audio Radius R90’s/Mission Freedom 770 IV
    BJC speaker cables, generic RCA’s, one homemade power cable, because that’s going to do any good with the rest of the generic ones.
    Technics SL3200 turntable and a Shure M97xE phono cartridge
    Velodyne VA-907 subwoofer
    Lafayette LR-1100 acting as a tuner and phono.
    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Yes very nice review. I've always recommended the Polk 505 for people who didn't want to spend on an HSU or SVS. Most have been happy with it. Now Polk is offering a big step up from the 505, nice to see.
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.
