Gonna make this quick, as it was not an in depth listen nor at my own home, but went to a friends that had owned older Polks, and found they replaced them with the S60 Pair.

Not gonna give tons of details, as I was not familiar with hearing even their vintage Polks IN their home, but found the S60's to sound Very good to Excellent. Surpassing what I had imagined.
No boomy bass, not overly exaggerated highs, but just clean and clear sound, that was hard to really fault. Not saying perfect mind you, but a very smooth balanced sound.

Deep bass was pretty decent, but not spectacular as with my subs.
Overall impressive and they look good also.
Lsi15, Lsi9, LsiC,Rta11t,M5jr+,M4,SDA 3.1TL, SDA SRS 2.3TL, Rti6....Still listing stuff, a work in progress.

    Hard to beat the S60's at their price point, and even beyond. Excellent all around sound for a modest investment and they respond very well to equipment upgrades.

    Glad you got your ears on them
