Summary: I wasn't expecting such a good sounding speaker at this price. What other reviewers have said is generally true, they do sound a bit bright at first but that does seem to mellow out just fine. The low bass is weak as one would expect for a small speaker but it is clean and tight and rolls off smoothly with no hint of port noise. I use them with a subwoofer so the bass response is not an issue for me.
Summary: I sold Hi Fi...OK, mid fi, back in the day when Polk was just making their mark. I loved Polk speakers, they were the Toyota of Hi Fi back then, they just went about making musical speakers and allowed beer budget, budding audiophiles a taste of the good stuff. They sounded great on all kinds of music, and they were affordable. Nothing has changed. I love this speaker, it is in a word, sweet.
Pros: Smooth, musical, wonderful bass, smart looking in a small footprint. Bi-amp capable. Sound great on a variety of music. Don't need a lot of power to shine. No serious flaws, affordable almost audiophile sound. Polk continues its tradition of hitting above its weight. Many hi end speakers fall short of the Polk objective of creating speakers for music lovers without the bloated price. Kudos Polk.
Cons: Splashy high end, less punchy dynamics than some competitors. A little chesty sounding. Nit picking, really.
Summary: Purchased and use only as front speakers for mainly TV viewing using a Denon AVR1913. Also use for music and both sound great. Although I'm no audiophile, the sound is good and great for the price. I usually don't play anything too loud, when I do they can handle the 125 watts of my receiver. Loved not having to pick up at a store, front door delivery rules.
Summary: i purchased these speakers on a"whim", didnt need them, i have 3 other pairs of very expensive speakers. i was researching another product for a friend and stumbled across these by accident. for the price i had to have them. these speakers are being powered in a 2 channel system by a 200 wpc adcom power amp and a tube pre-amp, a system in which they have no right to be in and they sound great ! do they compare to 1000.00 pr. bookshelfs ?
Pros: plenty of detail , very smooth overall , more bass than you might expect
Cons: can sound a little "woody" in the mids on some material
Summary: I like speakers that look beautiful as well as sounding great.....The veneer cabinets of the TSi300 are stunning (I have the cherrywood finish). Now for the sound...these speakers are quite good for the money. I have not heard a better pair in the $400 price range. Good bass response, although not quite as defined as I prefer but again, for the money this is a killer set of speakers. I use them for the TV, playing DVD's and CD's, and I'm very happy with this purchase.
