anybody have any opinions on a pair of Polk Audio LS50s?
no one has anything to say good or bad about these, just wanted to know if i should keep them or upgrade
It's hard to comment on speakers no one here pays any attention to. No offence, but Polk speakers aren't all that popular here.
Sometimes people won't comment when they have nothing good to say. Maybe a speaker upgrade is in order.
Perhaps you should audition a variety on newer speakers and you tell us how your LS50s stack up. Then if you have the resources you'll be able to evaluate whether or not you should upgrade.
The only Polks I have heard that were worth much were those in the LSi series.
what would you recommend to audition, for say a $1,000 to $2,500 budget,
the polks were $399 each back in 1992

Music Direct is in Chicago as well, but that is an online outlet only I believe.
looks like i will be busy next week
i've been to Decibel a couple of times, they acutally sold the speakers i make, but not anymore, i now have them at Transistor Chicago.
they are not audiophile speakers but good for computer or ipod speakers. The guys at Decibel liked them alot, but they thought the price was too high for what they were. if you have a chance look up ikyaudio
let me know what you think,
FYI not trying to sell you anything :)
i have to disclose that i am the manufacuture of ikyaudio speakers
