User Review

stevenlevel a AudioPhile, Audio Review
21 September 2014
  • Summary: These are very average floor standing speakers and are more than bested by the Polk RTi line of floor standing speakers in both build quality and sound. These are basically just the TSi200 bookshelf speakers in a floor model version. The difference between the Tsi line and Polk's Rti line is vast.

Extreme Performance in Audio and HT

  • Summary: Exterior Finish - Got the speakers and unpacked them to an amazing sight of cherry finish with the high gloss back top. My wife absolutely loved it. They are one of the bigger towers and will dwarf even a 40inch TV. Sound - Listened to a lot of speakers.

A note on the cherry exterior

James Blackwell, Amazon
19 February 2012
  • Summary: Much has been written about the acoustical qualities of this speaker so I just wanted to add a comment about the cherry exterior. First off, it is beautiful. It looks like quality wood furniture and the high gloss piano black accents are very sophisticated.

Outstanding Value for the Money

Craig Still, Amazon
18 February 2012
  • Summary: I feel it is only fair to mention my music history and musical tastes before you read the review. I am a former DJ and worked in pro-sound back in the 70’s and 80’s. I have used and owned countless speakers and my musical tastes are anywhere for Abba to Zappa and nearly everything in between...

Major audio upgrade

Bradley R. Kendall, Amazon
17 February 2012
  • Summary: I have been using some vintage Sansui and Pioneer speakers for some time and finally decided to purchase some high end speakers. What a difference! I used to think my SP-2500s sounded good until listening to the TSi500s. They bring out the detail in all of my music.

These sound and look fantastic, especially for the price.

  • Summary: I'm very happy with my Polk TSi500 speaker pair. They look as good in real life as they do in the pictures, although I prefer the look of the exposed cones to the speaker grille. The sound quality is about as good as you can expect for speakers priced in this range.

Great value

James Karl Sauerbrey, Amazon
15 February 2012
  • Summary: After tiring many speakers could not find any better in this price range, Good sound watching movies or listening to music. I'm running 4 of these with 2 12in subs at 135w per channel and it fills a 18 x 25 foot room well. Clean sound at medium volume with good range.

Fantastic For The Price I Paid!!

  • Summary: I sold my old polk tsi300s and 100s to my friend who set up his first ht system. With the money I got from selling my old gear, I only paid $375 out of my pocket for a pair of these tsi 500s.

  • Summary: After 27 years, I finally upgraded my Acoustic Research AR-15s to these Polk TSi500s. Wow! I couldn't be happier! You never know what you are missing until you hear these speakers.

My First High End Audio Speakers.

Jacob, Amazon
13 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought these from Polk direct through their website back in Feb. 2010. Since tax return time was around the corner, I went ahead and bought out almost an entire 5.1 set-up. I bought 2 TSi500's which was quite expensive, + an additional pair of surrounds (TSi300's).
