Excellent Sounding Speakers

Richard from Albuquerque, NM on 1/13/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Warning, long story but you may find it helpful. I should also say I'm not an audiophile but i love music and appreciate a good sounding system. My local box store had Klipsch R-820F speakers on sale for 225.00 @. I haven't had a decent set of floor standing speakers in years so thought I would try them for the price. I loved the way they sounded. It was like being front and center at a concert. The problem, I have damaged the hearing in my right ear and it's very sensitive to high frequency sounds. The Klipsch speakers had very crisp, clear highs that sounded incredible but made my right ear physically hurt. Even at low volumes I wasn't able to take the treble. I tried adjusting the highs down with the EQ built into my Denon receiver but by the time the highs were reduced enough, the speakers lost their incredible sound. So these got returned and I went with a pair of ELAC Debut 6.2 based solely on reviews. My opinion, for my taste they suck. No treble and no bass without extensive tweaking of the EQ. Even then these speakers were very weak on the lows. I have a Velodyne sub for the really low stuff but still expect my main speakers to handle their share of the load. Back these went and I started looking into Polks. I bought the S60s and love them. The highs are crisp and clear without being painful, the mids are solid, vocals sound perfect and the bass is very respectable, although I still use my sub to fill in the really low notes.Bottom line, these are keepers.

Pros: Sound, very good bass, crisp clear highs, vocals sound great rather listening to music or watching a movie.

Cons: None

Fine speakers with amazing clarity

David from Jackson, MS on 7/6/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Just received these wonderful speakers on July 3rd. Ordered them on June 29th so they really came quickly! I think UPS was trying to beat the Fourth of July holiday! I am using these right now only for Audio. They sound amazing. Have tried them on everything from classical organ, piano, guitar and oboe music to music like Stevie Nicks - Trouble in Shangri-La and many others. I'm hearing details that I had never heard before. The clarity is amazing and I have plenty of highs, midrange and nice tight bass. For anyone wondering if lower powered amplifiers can drive these, my Sony receiver only puts out 60 watts per channel and they sound great and have plenty of volume. The specs say that they can operate from 20 to 200 watts. Physically the speakers look really nice in the walnut finish and since these speakers are taller than wide and my older speakers were wider, I feel like I have gained more room! Of course if you want to blow the windows out with booming bass, you can always add a subwoofer, but for me, I am very pleased with them like they are right now. I am not an big audiophile and don't have them bi-amped or anything and they work fine without it for me. I had no problems with the packaging and they arrived in perfect condition by UPS. They are heavy (about 60 pounds shipping weight each) so if you are not strong, have someone to help when they arrive!

Pros: Great highs, midrange and tight bass even without subwoofer

Cons:

These speakers were a great addition to my home theater set-up. I already had purchased four S-15's for my 7.2 setup and when these went on sale I chose these instead of the S55's and I think I made the right decision. The sound is phenomenal and the immersion is truly incredible. Great quality and value for the money.

Pros: Great Sound for the money Good Looking Speaker Great clarity and Bass response

Cons: None so far!

The Polk S60 series are really amazing. I was using Magnepans with a MC7270 power amp. And wanted to try something that is more accurate, and defined. After a lot of research, I landed on these. I am still getting them adjusted to the room, however so far the sound is amazing. I'm very impressed with the quality of these speakers. Especially with the price.

Pros: Very accurate, great sound dispersion, super nice sleek look, really reasonable price.

Cons: Can't find any yet.

These speakers are absolutely amazing. My room is about 16x24 and the sound from these speakers fill the room nicely. I'm using 2 S60 towers for my front surround sound. The bass that these speakers can produce is amazing. The highs and mids are very crisp and clear. I would recommend these to anyone.

Pros: Sound quality, bass response, great finish on the speaker enclosure.

Cons: A little large to try and blend into a living room (which is the issue my wife has with them). However. Still a great looking speaker.

Great Speakers for the price

Patrick from Middletown, DE on 2/24/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers were purchased after a tweeter fried on one of my 24 year old Polk LS 70s. I had read reviews, but had not heard the speakers personally. With Crutchfield's return policy, I knew that if the speakers did not perform to my satisfaction I could easily return them. My home theater has all Polk speakers except for a Hsu Research sub, and I've had Polk car audio systems, so I knew the probability of my satisfaction would be high. I've been very impressed with the S60s! They perform as well as my old LS 70s, which were much more expensive even 24 years ago. Clear and accurate highs without being harsh, a silky smooth midrange and they blend well with the rest of my Polk theater suite. To top it off, I got them during Crutchfield's last sale so I got a very good price. Highly Recommended if you plan on spending less that $1,000 for a pair of towers.

Pros: - Excellent sound for the price - Great looking with or without grills in place - Magnetic grills - Sonically compatible with earlier Polk speaker models

Cons: - A bit large (but smaller S55 and S50 models available)

Well worth the wait. I absolutely love these speakers. The sound is so clean compared to my old home theater in a box bookshelf speakers. I am especially happy that I bought these from Crutchfield because I know they will stand behind the products they sell. Also the look of the speakers is better than anything else I've seen out there. When I purchased these they were on back order but I am so glad that I decided to wait for them to come in instead of going with something else.

Pros: Great sound Great looks

Wow! These are way better than expected. I had heard the Model below at a local retailer, these are well worth the extra cash. For my particular situation there's no need for additional subs, these have plenty of bass reponse. This was also a scratch and dent purchase. The boxes were pretty beat up, but I haven't found a single issue with the speakers. They even arrived before the scheduled date.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Well people these are more than worth the asking price. So you might ask, how do they sound? To explain I would by saying, any quality speaker actually has no particular sound. A speakers primary job is to accurately reproduce the input signal & the S60's do that very well & effortlessly. So guys your system will sound as well or as bad as the quality of your source. I am well pleased with the Signature line from Polk Audio & Crutchfield is a no bull Company. They address any issues with no hassle. (1) negative is the factory packaging which needs to be addressed. Have read many articles about shipping damage, as one of mine has minor shipping damage

Purchased a pair of S60's, arrived in very good condition, just a few small nicks, scrapes and dents in shipping boxes., nothing more then I would expect for a large box of this size, and no internal damage at all. Easy as pie to unpack, as instructions are printed right on the box. I unpacked both by myself within a couple of minutes without any problems. Sound is excellent, crystal clear high's and mid range, solid bass to the point where a sub woofer may not be necessary. Highly recommended.

Pros: High And Mid-range clarity, solid bass.

Cons: None

Alex from Dayton, OH on 11/9/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought two of these S60's because they had great reviews around the net and great specs. Paired with my Yamaha RX-A2070, they sound amazing! However, I bought the scratch and dented discounted ones. The discount is great, however they probably should offer a variable price. One just had two notch's out on the top back edge of the speaker...awesome deal! The other one...well it looked like someone did a high drop of it. The front right corner is pretty smashed, and has a crack to the speaker front base (the gray part that houses the speakers to the overall frame. Other than that they are a great deal.

Pros: They sound amazing and are great value. Great discount for scratch and dented

Cons: The scratch and dented are a mixed bag. One was barely damaged while the other seen a major incident.

Absolutely Great Speakers

james from Derby, VT on 9/23/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers a week or so after purchasing the OPPO UDP 203 and as my review of that equipment indicated I was really impressed by the improved picture and sound quality over the Darby 105D. My current speakers were the Definitive Technology 8060s which for whatever reason I was really never happy with, something to do with the sound. I have frequently wondered off of the Polk reservation but I keep coming back to them. Listening to these speakers in conjunction with the Oppo UDP-203 I was literally blown away. I listen primarily to classical music and my two go to disks for judging sound quality are the Mercury Living Presence 1812 Overture conducted by Antal Dorati and the Saint Saens Organ Symphony conducted by Michael Stern and the Kansas City Symphony on Reference Recordings. The clarity of sound on both was amazing. Without the aid of a sub-woofer these speakers were able to handle the cannons of the 1812 and the Organ entry of the organ symphony without breaking off and falling into the muddy sound area. For reference my receiver is the Cambridge CXR200. Individually they are all great but together I at least couldn't be more pleased.

Pros: Everything!

Cons: None!

I traded up to these from my 1980s technology large Advents. If you're of that generation you know the Advents were awesome in their day - among the best for the money. But after 35 years I figured I was due, especially since I was setting up my new media room! The Polks are definitely better - more clarity and more base. They aren't the light years better I was hoping for, but better nonetheless and I'm happy. I bought Polks because they were on sale and because of previous great experience with Polks. I replaced my Bose outdoor speakers with Polk Atrium 6 and have been extremely pleased.

Beast Upgrade

Tim from Lake Grove, NY on 7/31/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Coming from a Polk TL3 7.1 satellite speaker system these are a massive upgrade and what I've been looking for. They are Bi-amped with a Denon 1913 receiver in a 5.1 setup with a 12 inch Polk DSW 660 subwoofer. Playing music from Tidal HIFI via my computer has great stereo imaging, which I have never experienced before and it's amazing. I binged a few marvel superhero movies(Thor Dark World, Captain America Winter Soldier, and Avengers Age of Ultron) and I felt like I was in a theater. I hope to pair these with a S35 center, S20 rear surrounds, and a high end receiver in the future to fully experience the S60's capabilities.

Pros: Sound Perfect

Cons: Larger than I thought

I was stunned by the sound when I quickly connected them to my receiver as large front speakers, subwoofer on (so I had thought). At first, I was amazed by how clear the highs were from streaming music from spotify on my iphone through my receiver (Onkyo TX-RZ3100). The bass was smooth and deep. I then decided to turn off the sub (velodyne Optimum 12 Inch) through my receiver's menu. Then I realized, the subwoofer was off the whole time! These Polk speakers truly have some clear smooth bass! I couldn't believe this so I reconfigured them with the subwoofer and it was just amazing to hear these 3 pieces producing some amazing sound. After about an hour, I had to put it all away, fiance came home and she wasn't as amused as I was. But anyways, I'll be bi-amping these to the receiver this weekend and listening to them with the DAC unit. Definitely worth the price and the looks of these look way better than they do online.

Pros: Sound great Look great Nice cabinet finish The bass is really deep and smooth The sound is loud and crisp

Cons: Nothing mechanically wrong with these speakers

Polk S60 Signature Series

Jonathan from WV on 3/25/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The S60 is tall, deep and heavy. The sound is tall, deep and heavy. This is a High Quality Sound Product from Polk. It handles all sounds effortlessly and with authority. The Bass is vented with Polk Power Ports at the Bottom, making the bass accurate and powerful. The Bass is full and not boomy, you can run a sub woofer if you wish, I do not find I need one. The Power Port is on the bottom of the speaker and the vent is about a 3 inch gap which is covered by the Magnetic Grill when attached. With the port on the bottom this might make room placement easier. The mid bass is also great, giving guitars and other instruments a full bodied sound. The midrange and highs are very good and after a little speaker "break in"---you want to keep on listening to everything through these Polks. The sound is very coherent, everything blends together so well. The S60 is the Top of The Signature Line and even though it uses one more driver than the S55 you need to know the S60 mid-bass driver's are different than the drivers in the rest of the line. The S60 drivers have a 4 Layer Voice Coil and the others do not. The cabinets are very attractive, curved, not squared off like a normal speaker and the way they look is very nice. The feet on the speaker come attached and make the speaker very stable. From my use, they seem to be play with nicely with a AVR that has decent power. I think if yours has at least 60 to 80 watts

Pros: Quality Build. Quality Sound. Attractive Cabinets. Good with mid priced electronics.

Cons: None.

I personally owned all previous Polk audio lines with the exception of the lsim speaker line . I can say that all Polk audio speakersystems perform exceptional in any small to large home theaters making them a tremendous value in there own rite in comparison to similar priced speaker systems. This new signiture line looks to be no different. I expect these new speakers to sound amazing at a more than reasonable price point..

Pros: The specifications of the entire line combined with there new driver technology looks very promising. And judging from experience I am more than confident that these speakers will deliver as promised!

Cons: None what so ever

Features

Dynamic Balance Drivers: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion. Using just the right materials enables Polk to eliminate issues that reduce speaker performance and tune out performance-robbing resonances before they occur. Dynamic Balance ensures a rich, clean, full-range sound no matter what you're listening to. The Polk Signature S60 floor-standing loudspeaker incorporates a Dynamic Balance two-way driver array with one 1" tweeter and three 6.5" woofers.

  • Hi-Res 1" Terylene Tweeter: The Signature S60 floor-standing loudspeaker utilizes Polk's newly designed 1" Terylene tweeter to deliver clear and detailed high-end response for realistic reproduction of vocals and instruments. It will support high frequencies up to 40kHz to perfectly reproduce the latest high-resolution audio files with improved audio extension, earning Hi-Res Audio Certification.
  • Three 6.5" Mica-Reinforced Polypropylene Woofers: The Signature S60 floor-standing speaker employs three 6.5" Dynamic Balance low distortion mica-reinforced polypropylene cone woofers for clean, clear bass, better linearity, and increased dynamic midrange and midbass. This mica-reinforced polypropylene woofers feature butyl rubber surrounds, massive ceramic motor structures, and high-temperature Conex fiber spiders that combine to create drivers of exceptionally high efficiency, for clean, clear bass, better linearity, lower distortion, and greater durability.

Power Port Technology: The Signature S60 floor-standing incorporates Polk's Power Port technology with a specially designed down-firing port. Power Port technology smoothly transition air flow from inside the speaker into your listening area for deep, extended bass impact while minimizing turbulence and distortion. Polk's patented Power Port technology delivers 3dB more bass response than a traditional ported speaker. Because the port is located on the bottom of the floor-standing speaker, its not necessary to position to the loudspeaker a certain amount of feet from wall - giving you greater placement flexibility.

Non-Resonant Enclosure: The floor-standing speaker's strong, rigid and acoustically inert enclosure reduces unwanted internal standing waves for less audible coloration. And non-resonant Meddite MDF construction, extra bracing, and a thick front baffle ensure a more lifelike sound. The enclosure's curved edges not only look cool, they reduce standing waves inside the cabinet for less audible coloration. The enclosure features a beautiful black washed walnut finish.

Anti-Diffraction Magnetic Grille: The Signature S60 includes an anti-diffraction magnetic grille for unaltered sound. The integrated magnets make it easy to attach and remove the grille from the floor-standing speaker.

Two-Way Crossover: The floor-standing speaker employs a high-performance two-way crossover array (2.5kHz) for seamless blending and optimum time alignment of the tweeter & woofers, creating a lifelike soundstage.

Dual 5-Way Binding Posts: The floor-standing loudspeaker has two sets of 5-way binding posts connected by jumpers. Using the dual 5-way binding posts, you can bi-amp or bi-wire the speakers. The 5-way binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual). The speaker terminals are color coded for easy identification between positive (red) and negative (black).

Dual-Floor Compatible Feet: Customized for improved stability and bass coupling to the floor, the floor-standing loudspeaker's feet are designed for both carpet and hard floors. The feet come pre-installed and should not be removed.

Applications & Placement: The Signature S60 floor-standing speakers can be used as front and/or surround speakers in a home theater setup. They can also be used in a simple stereo application. If your AV receiver offers built-in bass management, the S60 should be set to "Large" for an unfiltered, full-range audio signal.

  • Placement for Front Speakers: As a pair of front speakers in a home theater or stereo setup, create an equilateral triangle between the speakers and the listening position - with the speakers placed as far apart from one another as the listeners are sitting from them.
  • Placement for Surround Speakers: As surround speakers, the S60 should be placed on a side wall slightly behind the listening position. If you cannot place the speakers on the side walls, position them on the rear wall just behind the listening area.

Signature Series: Polk designed its Signature Series of loudspeakers to bring a big surround sound and a live music experience into the comfort of your living room at an affordable price. Featuring Hi-Res certification with a new high-resolution Terylene tweeter, redesigned Dynamic Balance drivers, precision crossovers, an anti-diffraction magnetic grille, modern cabinet styling and exclusive Power Port bass enhancing technology, Polk's Signature series loudspeakers deliver crystal clear highs, detailed midrange, and deep bass; plus they look great in almost any decor. The Signature Series by Polk consists of two center-channel speakers, three bookshelf loudspeakers, and three tower speakers.

Note: You may also want to add one of Polk Audio's powered subwoofers (sold separately) for even more bass response.

I like Polk's design philosophy of max value speakers. Over the past 25 years I've owned and liked many Polk speakers; why stop now? [ Robert  Sep 05, 2017 ]
A
Have done research herd them and an have the perfect receivers for this application rx2020 [ Melvin  Aug 19, 2017 ]
A
These things look awesome. They had a nice speaker configuration and the specs were above average. I have a huge LP collection so can't wait to hook these babies up to my turntable and listen to some vintage vinyl. [ John  Jul 04, 2017 ]
A
All of the reviews and recommendations. Specs on the speakers, and my 20 year old A. R. 312 ho's are a little tired. Still sound great but these have better specs than the old AR's. [ Keith R.  Jun 23, 2017 ]
A
Reviews, product video on crutchfield, previous buyer of Polk audio products. Known to be great sounding speakers and reputable brand name. [ Nick Sanchez  Jun 23, 2017 ]
A
Had Polk speakers from before. [ Barry  Jun 08, 2017 ]
A
Looking for outstanding sound quality and frequency response. [ S  May 16, 2017 ]
A
Was debating between these and the Klipsch RP280 and these sounded warmer, which is what I prefer. [ Deepak  Feb 27, 2017 ]
A
Chose this speaker because it was the price and size I was looking for. Also, Polk's reputation is a good one for bang-for-the-buck. I like the bottom-firing port as I can't put these speakers more than 8" away from the wall (didn't want a rear-firing ported speaker)--I think this speaker will have greater placement flexibility. I'll only use it in a 2 channel speaker setup, no sub woofer, for stereo and home theatre. Should be enough bass for my taste. [ mark  Jan 16, 2017 ]
A
Yes [ RAVI  Dec 31, 2016 ]
A
I was looking to upgrade my 16 year old Energy XL speakers and the Polk Signature series looked like a good value and had very good frequency response compared to my existing speakers as well as the B&W 600 series I was shopping them against. That they cost 1/2 as much didn't hurt either. I've had previous Polk book shelf speakers that had very good sound although I suspect the company is not the same as when i bought those a 25 to 30 years ago. [ Scott  Dec 14, 2016 ]

I am not sure.
[ Timothy  Jan 08, 2019 ]
A
Hey Mark59, yes, purchased mine a year and a half ago and couldn't be happier. The have better drivers than the smaller models in the same line. Worth the investment.
[ Keith R.  Jan 08, 2019 ]
Q
can you remove the feet and lay them on there side?
[ Johnathan  Jan 29, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
Although theoretically it is possible to do, I would advise against it since it would interfere with bass response as well as degrading stereo imaging.
[ Robert  Jan 30, 2018 ]
A
They certainly aren't designed to be used that way but I would imagine that the feet are just screwed in which would probably allow that to happen. Go up to your local Best Buy and see if you look at the bottom of one. If you see screws then you can probably remove them. Hope this helps.
[ Shaun  Jan 29, 2018 ]
Q
Subwoofer to use with the Polk S60's. They show that they can go to 26hz and a lot of subs don't even go that low. What would be a good compliment subwoofer?
[ James  Jun 13, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best sub I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the sub models and help you make the best choice for your system.
