    Default Schweet!

    My mother-in-law is picking up a CS1000p for me on Monday. So thrilled! Hopefully it'll be in my possession by next weekend and I'll be that much closer to completing a full RT5000P setup. I'm also debating picking up another pair of RT55's from him too. I don't really need them, but the price is right.

    Tell her to use her legs (ie. NOT her back!) when picking that monster up!

    Love the 1000P...Congrat's, nice score!

    Ok. So I didn't want to post this until the deal was done. I ended up getting it for less than a bill. I feel jipped though because he didn't have the universal plug for the amp. What to do...

    That center is like a heavy tower that gets turned on its side. I hope she has help loading it. I had help loading and unloading, seriously.

    Congrats!!!!

    I have RT55 rosewoods for the rears if I ever decide to use them. I also have RT20P's for the rear also if I ever choose to use them instead. I have the (s..?)300's for surrounds mounted up at a 7' height for now and they're not to shabby by any means either.

    I just don't have the space for the bigger surrounds but I'm working on that. I'd love to have 2 sets of RT3000P's for the 4 corners.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    She is great, but she ended up not getting it for me; something of more import came up. I took a half day and went on a 8 hour round trip to get it. I grabbed the 55's too, so now I have two pair even though one set doesnt have tweets. Even after $60 gas, I'm more than thrilled now.

    That price is the main reason I was so excited in the first place.

    I would post a pic but have no idea how to do so from my phone.

    Dude, you get the best deals. Admittedly, I wouldn't have made an 8 hour drive though so you deserve it.

    Accurate thread title.

    Given the size and the fact that he was willing to hold it until I got the logistics covered, I figured the 8 hour drive was just easier on all parties. It was a long day, but I'm reaping the rewards now. Initial impressions is that this truly is the best center Polk has made (haven't heard the LSiM model). The CS400 sounded good with the 3000's, but nothing like the 1000. Its such a seamless front stage now with such detail that I can't get enough of it. I might, just might, have to start watching movies again on a regular basis.

    That looks fantastic! You are making me want to drag mine out of the basement after your review. My room is long and narrow so I have gone towards the LSi7 / LSiC fronts from the RT3000p / CS400 I had been using because the CS1000p was huge. Maybe if I get my "larry's rings" and gaskets upgrade installed on my 2.3s I will do some more A/B between the LSi and RT systems. But even with just 1 microPro 3000 hooked up my wife flew down stairs last night when I put in Harry Potter Half Blood Prince claiming the 2 yr old was scared and she thought a storm rolled in before I could get the volume turned down...

    Great Score!
