No reviews anywhere, I listened to them in the store, they sound like speakers. I am no audiophile, so don't buy these on my recommendation. I hope some of you slick-audiophiles will listen and say 'This is great!'

It was available in store, and looks like its available online too.

The package is pretty impressive though, 5 polk speakers, and 1 huge ass powered sub-woofer.

TL1900
Whether you’re looking for your first home theater sub/sat system or want to upgrade to more performance, you’re in for a big surprise in a small, compact package from Polk®. The TL1900 is an amazingly affordable, professional quality compact home theater system.



Big Speaker Sound Without The Big Speaker
The TL1900 is comprised of comes four high performance TL1900 satellite speakers, a TL1900 center channel speaker and our own specially engineered, compact 50 Watt powered subwoofer, all packaged together. Easy to set up, easy to connect, the TL1900 delivers the excitement of dynamic, thrilling surround sound with deep bass for your movies, games and TV like you’ve never heard them before.

Satellite and Center Channel Features
Time Lens Technology—The acoustic centers of the tweeter and mid-bass driver are located in the same plane for superior imaging, while the acoustic lens incorporated in the grille smoothes the tweeter’s frequency response. The TL Series creates imaging and frequency balance previously impossible in small, high performance satellite speakers.

Satellite Aperiodic-Tuned rear port enables better blending with a subwoofer. This design combines the bass extension of an acoustic suspension enclosure with the mid-bass boost of a ported enclosure by controlling air flow through the port for better extension without distortion.

Center channel tuned rear port maximizes the low end response of the dual driver design for superior blending with the satellites and the subwoofer.

Curved Enclosure Design employs non-parallel surfaces that not only lead to a stronger, more rigid and acoustically inert enclosure, but they also result in less audible coloration from internal surface resonances.

1/2-inch silk dome tweeters for crisp, clear imaging and smooth response that’s never tiring.

2 1/2-inch Dynamic Balance® long-throw drivers. Polk’s patented transducer design process scientifically tunes materials to produce a flat frequency response, with sharp detail, transparency and the ability to play loud without strain.

5-way binding posts offer hookup versatility and secure connections.

Combination keyhole slot & 1/4-inch x 20 threaded Insert fits all aftermarket ceiling and wall brackets for ultimate flexibility. Or simply hang the speaker securely on a nail or screw using the keyhole slot.

Hi-gloss finish matches today’s most stylish flat panel TV’s.

Powered Subwoofer Features
Heavy-duty, non-resonant MDF enclosures feature an elegant satin black finish that creates the ideal décor accent.

Front firing powered subwoofer. A vented enclosure with an 10-inch long-throw Dynamic Balance poly composite driver. The long driver excursion and excellent linearity produce big, musical bass.

Built-in 50 Watt continuous/100 Watt peak amp with active crossover offers the control you need for real home theater thrills and big, musical, accurate bass.

Its a deal because its 4 speakers, 1 center, and 1 powered sub for 161.

The specs are near/identical to the Energy take 5 classics and it comes with a sub that you normally sells for 100 (or $80 via neweggs sale).

Show me a better system for cheaper then.

I think your definition of a deal needs to be adjusted.

5 seconds later, I come up with a link beating the price using YOUR definition of a 'deal'... then the deal below is 'better' by $40.

http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-NS-S...1+speakers

With another 5 seconds of effort, here's a list... half of which would be a 'deal' by your definition...

None of us know. We're just trading barbs until someone knowledgeable walks into the room to set us straight.
