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

    I also really like my S60's. Still happy with these 2 years later.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk Signature S60's with ZU Audio IBIS jumpers; Cables: Wireworld Eclipse IC; Audioquest Big Sur IC; ZU Audio Mission speaker cables; PS Audio AC-3 power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; SDA2BTL's, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.
