    I'm getting rid of my 15 year old Polk speakers and going to upgrade to a Home Theater speaker system. My front end is an Onkyo TX-SR700 and I am considering The Polk RM7600 package. Anyone have good results? Bad? Any better recommendations?

    It really depends on your budget and what you expect from the system. Mostly music or movies? Room size? Have you listened to these and other speakers yet?
    I find that satellite systems (anything with a mid smaller than 5-1/4) do fine for movies, but do not do as well with music.
    Take a look at this post also, as this will be the same issue for most sub/sat systems:

    If I were to build a system with Polks, I would buy their larger bookshelf speakers and a center vs one of their packages, and a sub from someone else (HSU, Adire, SVS)
