still in the break in period, but at this point I'm slightly disappointed in the lower end of this center channel

This center channel replaces the Polk LSiM 704c in my home theater. By comparison, I have to say that it is significantly better in every way. More clarity, greater accurancy and range, amazing detail, effortless dynamics, etc. Really just super impressed with this center speaker! The new pinnacle tweeter really is something special. Definitely the best I've ever heard.
Pros: Clarity, effortless power and dynamics, amazingly lifelike

I am so pleased with this purchase. It replaced Polk's CSIA6. I had just purchased the Polk Legend L800's and debated trading up to this center. The fact that the tweeters match the L800s is essential to me. They are the single most appealing feature of the new Legend series. From my attached pic you can see I have a large two story room with the center high over my TV flanked by SVS down firing dolby atmos height speakers. The sound generated in combination with the SDA presence of the L800's using Auro-3D for music is stunning. It presents a wall of sound that washes over you. Being a 4ohm single channel speaker presented a challenge as I was driving all my previous 7.2.2 system with a Marantz 8012. So mixing 4 and 8 ohm speakers was not an option. Crutchfield tech support offered a good solution which I doubled checked with Polk. I bought a separate Niles 2100 external amp and used each channel to drive the L400 bi amped producing 220w for each pole which presented 4 ohms each back to the amp. We Y connected preout from the Marantz to main ins on the Niles. It works great for all forms of music and of course uhd movies. It was fun putting this together and the result is stunning. Buy it!
Pros: Got to be tweeters matching the Polk L800 towers
Cons: 4 ohm presented a challenge which was fun to solve.
