Polk is closing out the remainder of their Signature series and still have some S60 models in black for $249 [polkaudio.com] (per speaker, black only) with free shipping. For a home theater configuration, the matching S35 center channel is still available for $149 (a total of $647 for a 3 channel system).

S60 floorstanding speaker [polkaudio.com] (each)

S35 center channel [polkaudio.com]

It is important to note that the S60 speakers reach down to 26Hz so a subwoofer is not required in most cases (I run the 3.0 configuration to fill a very large room with ease and I was once asked where my subwoofer is). Also, they are not to be compared with the ES60 model, which is essentially identical for $300 more (although I have yet to hear them).

The S35 center channel speaker does have a provision and paper template for wall mount configurations. All of the Polk Signature speakers run 8 ohms of impedance so you don't need a high-end receiver in order to run them.

The next best price is Amazon ($449+tax) [amazon.com]. Most other outlets no longer have them in stock.

Unpopular opinion, but slim speakers suck. $100 speakers from the 1970s with 14" woofers will blow your mind. We've gone for style over actual sound physics. Hopefully it will swing back the other way.

I've had my eye on these speakers for a long time. From everything I've read, they seem to be one of the great bargains in audio. If only they were available in white at this price...

I was very surprised at the quality, and they punch well above their weight. You can wait on a sub if you need, they can handle it without. I've not yet heard their ES line, doubt they're worth the extra money over the original Signature Series.

Agreed. I should add I'm talking about the S60s, S20s, and S30. I've never heard the S35, only the full size S30 center. Soundbars and slim speakers may have their place but probably not my house.

True, brother has a set of JBL L100s. Hard to find that sound these days.

I will say it does its job with great clarity with dialogue in TV and movies, but you can definitely tell where it's lacking in depth when sound pans across the front 3 speakers.

My wife and I compromised on these--I got the big tower speakers I wanted, she got the S35 that fit in the tiny gap in the fireplace TV stand she owned before we got married.

The S35 sounds fine now, but it's the only speaker I've owned that really needed a break-in period. It was rough for the first month or so. I'd also recommend going into your receiver settings and pushing your center a few DB higher than your mains, even above what the receiver calibration puts it at.

If you need a skinny center, you don't have a lot of options, and none of them are really any better than this. But if you have the room for a big center, you'll enjoy it a lot more.

Quote from JimBanville :
Speaker break in is a myth. Your ears "broke in" and got used to the sound.
the soft materials inside speakers definitely change with time, but to the extent that humans can detect a noticeable difference, not much until it's broken.

it's not a myth that soft materials either harden or soften over time.
