Polk

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.

I guess it really only matters if you like them.

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.

good idea!

what would you recommend to audition, for say a $1,000 to $2,500 budget,

the polks were $399 each back in 1992

 

thanks

thanks again

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
