Best sounding 'single speaker surround' to my ears. I even hear stuff behind me!
The shiny black finish creates a glare from the television
My SB50 is mated to a PSW505 and Onkyo TX-SR605. After I washed the wax out of my ears (no I'm not kidding) the surround effect is enormous. Lower frequencies definitely on the thin side for HT so a subwoofer is a must to really enter the HT experience. Music quality is acceptable and can be vastly improved (or diminished) by playing with the receiver DSP modes to find the best sound. Wife acceptance factor is very high. There was no way she would tolerate permanent side/rear speakers and I wasn't about to cut holes in the ceiling. Temporary addition of a wired rear speaker (effectively 6.1) for a couple days added to the 'fullness' of the sound but did not significantly benefit the surround effects. I am quite pleased with the performance and have no regrets. I highly recommend this speaker.

This speaker sounds great and is very easy to install. It's amazing how one speaker can sound this good.
Music sounds good not great. Polk does not supply the screws to mount to the wall.
This speaker is truly amazing. Sounds great, looks good, very easy intallation. Would definately recommend to anyone who can't have rear speakers or it's too much of a hassle to install rear speakers. This is so much easier. A+.

High quality in terms of manufacturing and sound. High value for the money.
Haven't really found one, still playing with mating this with the 5.1 receiver.
Incredible sound. I installed the 50 and a PSW111 sub just before Christmas. The installation was easy. I first tested the bar with one of the Sonic music channels from Directv. As you know, these channels are not quite CD quality. The SurroundBar made this music sound full and transparent. I have a much more expensive music system elsewhere in the house and i prefer listening to the SurroundBar. I have heard that most "bars" are only good for movies and the like. The SurroundBar hits a home run, regardless of the source. Even a foodball game sounds better on this system. Speech is very easy to understand on it as well.
