Polk Audio owners thread

We must have a few Polkies on the board. In the home theater I have LS90's (the old guys can still rock ) in the front, a CS350 center, and was using a pair of M5's for surrounds but since one bit the dust recently I am now using a pair of Paradigm Atoms I had sitting around, and a Def Tech Powerfield12 and a YamahaYST-SW150 sub. I am using a Polk RM6750 sub/sat system in the living room. Surely I am not all alone here.

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

I'm a happy owner of Polk LSi 9's for the fronts, LSi C for center, and LSi-7's for the rears, which I also use for mixing as near-field monitors. When I heard the LSi-9's I exclaimed "WOW!!!" quite loudly after hearing everything else our local Tweeter had to offer, and totally startled the salesman, who had never heard a customer reaction as strong as that!

Hi Terry and welcome to the Shack!

I just ordered some RTi12's, along with a CSi5 and a pair of FXi5's. Ill probably go crazy waiting for em to come in, but if i can maintain my sanity, ill probably post a lengthy review on these forums.

No SDA owners? When I was a kid I dreamed of the big 6 ft SDA's advertised on the first ten pages of Stereo Review and Audio mag.

Re: Polk Audio owners thread

I'm also a polkaudio forum member. Though I no longer own Polks, I used to have the LSi9 and LSi15. The LSi9s were super bookshelves in their category - I really liked them a lot! The LSi15, I never quite got dialed in. I bought them because the concensus is typically that they're the best in the line - however I always much preferred what I heard from the LSi25 in showrooms. The LSi25 were actually my first speaker "WOW" experience. I preferred them to the more expensive ($3.5K) Martin Logans. Should've gone with my ears. I think if I had, I'd have stuck with them a lot longer before upgradeitis kicked in.
