”It’s a composed performer, but direct and bursting with detail.” ’Home Cinema Choice’ – ‘Recommended’.

Matched speaker package for seamless, cinema sound

With identical front and rear speakers and perfectly matched centre and subwoofer, the Polk TL1600 5.1 speaker system is ideal for seamless home cinema sound. The same speaker type means that, as the sound passes around the room, it gives a consistent tone and timbre – letting you enjoy the sound, rather than hearing the changes in tone.

Time Lens technology for superb clarity
Polk has refined the design of the TL1600 satellite speakers to deliver perfect cohesion and a broad sound stage. By setting the tweeter unit back from the woofer, the correct time alignment is established, which helps give a smooth, natural sound, especially with vocal tones. The soundstaging is also enhanced, so wherever you sit in the room you'll experience a more enveloping sound. In addition, the grilles include an acoustic lens that smooths the tweeter's frequency response for a more balanced sound.

Extended Linear Motion for powerful bass
The woofer units feature Extended Linear Motion, so they can move further, more smoothly and in a smaller space. What this means is that bass is not only deeper than you'd expect for such a small speaker, but it's also sustained for longer, too. Complimenting this is Dynamic Balance technology, which has removed distortion from the drivers, ensuring bass is delivered without the distortion sometimes present in small speakers.

Silky smooth treble
Matching the powerful and dynamic bass is a smooth, articulate treble. The silk dome tweeters provide a high-end response that's smooth yet detailed in the best Polk tradition.

'Blackstone' finish
Finished in durable, glossy black, the TL1600 package not only looks striking in its own right but is also the perfect match for most TVs and AV components. Keyhole slots into the rear of the satellite speakers make them easy to hang on the wall. They've also got threaded slots to be used with a wide variety of brackets and stands.

A sub/sat system with high-end design; the Polk Audio TL1600 is engineered to impress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy Very happy with my new Polk speaker system which I bought along with a new Denon AVR to replaced a tired, 9 yr-old Onkyo system. Sound is crisp and clear with lovely depth - very good for the price point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great system but... I bought this 5.1 setup to compliment my new Sony AV receiver. These speakers are ideal for a small ‘ish’ room but I found the centre speaker lacked punch for the dialogue, great otherwise. You really need an amp that is able to individually adjust centre/surround VOLUME and eq. Such as the Yamahas do. I plan to replace it with a Q acoustics soon but I can live with it for now. Just annoying when you struggle to hear what’s being said when the actors speaks in a low or quiet voice. It’s lost amongst the ambient noise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Richersounds letting this product down I'm really sorry but I have to award 1 star due to the fact that Richer sounds did not provide a UK power lead or adapter for my speaker package. Poke 5.1 system came with an American power lead for the subwoofer!. Now I am aware that Richer sounds know about this from previous reviews. So I am surprised that they allow this to continue. I had to buy an adaptor in order to use subwoofer which I shouldn't have to do. Apart from that the delivery was fine. The system once fired up is nice, the sound is full and clean so far I'm impressed, would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 5.1 speaker package When I bought a new 4k TV and my old Sony home cinema in a box system can't cope with UHD I took it as an opportunity to upgrade my AV receiver to a Sony xxxx. To be honest I originally planned to reuse the old speakers, but the cheap passive subwoofer and 3ohm satelite speakers didnt stack up with my new amp. So I needed a new 5.1 speaker set that would fit into my relavively small room, and with TV and amp unable to deliver to their potential my impatience meant time was of the essence. The growth of sound bars and larger speakers meant i had a reletively small choice, it looked like the polk TL1600 fitted the bill and were within budget...much as it pains me to say it, that was about as much investigation as i did before buying from Richer Sounds, who had them for next day delivery. The lack of reviews was a slight concern but I reckoned Richer Sounds would stock them unless they were decent. Delivery was indeed next day as promised, a couple of slight snags were quickly resolved; RS immediately despatched a UK power lead when I called about the 2 pin cord that came in the box and some new screws allowed me to attach the satellites to my speaker stands. All connected I let the AV Receiver's auto configuration give me initial settings, settings that my subsequent tinkering couldn't improve. So how they sound, in short fabulous, the integration of sub woofer, centre and satellites is seamless and the ability to do justice to action movie effects and play music is fantastic, no compromise between music hifi and home cinema. I'm enjoying rediscovering my favourite movies and music. In our small room the compact speakers fit nicely, and their design is really nice, I'd say they are better than the pictures - the curved edges just enough to make tbe speakers look classy without trying to hard. They look great without the front covers too. My first experience of Polk speakers and I'm really impressed at their performance, build qulity and value for money. Combined with RS's first class service I'm very happy.
