Re: Polk audio vs Psb speakers

You should start with budget , then are you looking for a stereo system or building a HT one ?

If that's all there is to the question... for me, PSB hands down.

What is your budget and what are you looking for, may be that there is a better option for you than either of those. A little more information will help us to help guide you to the perfect speakers for you.

Gopi, I'm curious how you narrowed down to Polk, and psb, and what criteria you used.

I agree, is budget is no concern; why these two choices?

Actually yes, I'd say your missing a few. If you have access to these, I'd say try them. To name a few, golden ear, paradigm, definitive, jbl, Atlantic, infinity, kef, Martin Logan, focal, monitor audio, klipsch , B&W, and of course Cambridge audio. These are in addition to the ones you mentioned, and there are definitely more. The point is, there is an insane number to choose from, if you already heard some you liked, there isn't anything wrong with choosing them. If you have time and access, listen to as many as you can. Ultimately your ears need to decide considering how subjective speaker interpretations are. Choosing a brand for brands sake is just that. (Not objective) Please don't find my comments rude. I'm just being poignant.
How could I forget Wilson audio?
