S30 beats the S35 in low male vocal output
Performs better than the s35 for less money. The s35 sounds constricted on lower bass frequencies in larger rooms at high volume. As if you were funneling it through a narrow tube. The s30 has an unrestricted bottom and the low bass such as low octave male voices sound airy and open. It doesn't look...

The vocal accuracy of S30 sounds slightly better than S35
I have both Polk S30 and S35. The Polk S30 is used in my home theater with a projector and the S35 is used with a panel TV. The vocal accuracy of S30 sounds slightly better than S35. It is not a noticeable difference, particularly when it is blended with S50/60. Both center speakers do fantastic job...

Clear dialogue, excellent center
I added the S30 as the center channel in a 5.1 setup. I have an old Yamaha HTR 5830 that came as part of a HTIB about 15 years ago, and these along with the Polk S55's replace the small satellites and center. Everything is much more clear and detailed, I am quite pleased. Granted it is not hard to h...

Amazon exchange policies can’t be beat. They WILL make you happy.
I received my Polk S30, no damages on the outside but couldn’t hook it up till a month later. Well... it didn’t work. I’ve experienced, from another company detached wires inside. So I opened it up and the crossover was kinked over at the connection. Busted. I simply grabbed my phone, looked back at...

Fantastic Center Channel
I have this paired with a Demon AVR-X3200W receiver in a 5.1 configuration. Dialogue is crisp, clear and pronounced. Solid build quality, fit and finish. Beware, if you plan to position this up against a wall you will run into issues. The power port on the back protrudes out quite far. I do not have...

Get this speaker only if you have a high quality audio source such as Blu-ray
I paired Sony SSCS8 center channel speaker with Polk S55 towers for a year. I was mostly happy with the Sony speaker. Since I liked my S55 towers, I decided to get Polk S30 center channel. I have it for about 2 months now. I stream movies mostly from Netflix. And I was very disappointed with Polk S3...

Great Center Channel
This thing is a great center channel speaker. I'm using it with S15's as right and lefts. And 4 S10's for surround and height speakers. The system sounds great. My room is pretty large so at some point, I might upgrade to tower speakers but this setup is great so far. I chose the S30 instead of the ...

Quality is amazing compared to what I used before!
Bought this as well as a pair of S15*s to create my new home theater setup. Quality is amazing compared to what I used before. If you are unsure, go to a big box retailer to listen to the speaker quality before you make a purchase. In my opinion, the S series speaker's are terrific! *Update* Also pi...
