Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Polk Audio RM705 5.1 Home Theater System. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.50 stars, and the price range is $199.99.

The Polk Audio RM705 5.1 Home Theater System is a 6-Piece complete system that comes with four high performance, super-compact RM7 Satellite Speakers matched with a hard-working, detail-oriented RM7C Center Channel Speaker and a specially engineered, compact 50-Watt Powered Subwoofer. Unpack it, set it up, connect it to your receiver, and you've got the excitement of dynamic, thrilling surround sound with deep bass for movies, gaming and TV. The RM7 Center speakers are Magnetically Shielded for safe placement near your monitor or TV, and come with custom-designed surface mount cradles for easy placement on any flat surface. And the wide, lifelike soundstage proves that you can have small speakers without sacrificing big sound.

The only issue with this system is that it does not come with speaker wires.  Many users find it difficult to fit 14 gauge or 12 gauge speaker wire in the jacks on the speakers. But 16 gauge speaker wires fit perfectly.

Overall, Polk Audio RM705 Home Theater system is a good buy and well worth the money. The RM705 is everything you need for a compact home theater system, all in one package. To top that, RM Series Speakers are mix-and-match compatible, so you can buy them in sets or in pairs and build the compact sound system of your dreams, 5.1, 6.1, 7.1 and beyond.
