    I purchased these speakers at the end of last year (2019) and I think by then, they had already been discontinued by Polk for quite some time. However, after reading all kinds of reviews in different forums, etc., I decided to purchase them on Amazon, and I’m so glad I did! I have them setup as my front speakers in home theater obviously. All five drivers sound great! They’re able to reproduce all the tones in the spectrum, from the lowest to the highest. Their tower-shaped enclosures are well finished and they look very classy. These speakers work best if you hook them up to a good quality receiver/amplifier. I had mine hooked up to a Yamaha Aventage RX-2080 and it makes a huge difference! Before that receiver, I had a much smaller and older Yamaha and although the sound quality was good, it was never as good as with the much more powerful receiver. One of the advantages of this larger/more powerful AVRs is that it comes with can bi-amping, which enhances the sound a great deal! I had these speakers hooked up in a bi-amped mode and boy, do they blow my mind! The highs, mids, and lows are all reproduced with crystal-clear precision. The lows are tight but not punchy. The entire sound fills the room with a wholesome sound that’s hard to describe unless you hear it yourself. The only thing I did that you’re not supposed to do is that I set them up as “large speakers” on my receiver setup, in contrast of what most audiophile experts recommend (i.e., “small”) if you also have a subwoofer hooked up, which is what I have. The reason I used the “large speaker” setting is because as I originally bi-amped connected these guys and set them up as “small”, the sound that was coming out of them was really low, but changing them to “large” made I big difference. I was able to hear the entire music spectrum. Again, I know this goes against what most audiophile experts suggest, but to my ears it just makes a huge difference. I guess perhaps I don’t really understand exactly how bi-amping works with these particular speakers because it was never clear where the two different connectors went (for example, will the top connectors go to the tweeter and and top driver only and the bottom connectors go to the bottom three drivers, etc.?). So it’s kind of hard to ascertain how exactly bi-amping works in a situation like with these particular speaker–and I even tried to research it but found no info about it. Another very important technical feature that these speakers come with is its sensitivity, which is rated at 91dB! Any speaker sensitivity above the 90dB is very difficult to find, even on much more expensive ones. This small, albeit important detail, is often ignored by professional reviewers, but it does make a big difference in my opinion. Finally, it also helps if you have a good quality center speaker as well as surround ones. But your front speakers are always going to be your work horses in you home theater setup, so this is where you should start from. Anyway, sorry for the long essay if you actually read through the entire review. If you can still find these speakers anywhere go for them. Even if they had been discontinued by Polk, they still sound (and look) great!! You won’t regret it! Read more

    I had no experience with Polk Audio before I made this purchase. I wanted to upgrade my stereo speakers and decided I wanted quality. Well, after looking and looking and getting down in the weeds about distortion, power and a myriad of other metrics. As money was not an issue I decided to look at performance and not get wrapped around the axel about sound I could not hear in the first place. Polk Audio kept coming up again and again. So, I took a chance and I am very happy. In fact, I am going to purchase two more to complete the system. If you want performance and you figure out that the only difference in stereo speakers is sound in a range that you cannot hear, why not go with a company that figured that out as well and Polk decided to maximize that kind of performance.

    They haven’t even broken in yet…They’re just amazing inside/out. I’ve setup 10s of different home theater system (mostly Dolby Atmos with either Heights or over heads) for family, friends and clients. The latest was my brother’s Klipsch +$6k bundle, beautiful, but let me tell you, I would take this set all day everyday for the money. TSI Series sound fantastic! My setup may sound ok in your home, but my selection and the cave I live in love this gear. The reason why I chose Polk was the memories I had with this fantastic brand back in the 80s. Tsi500 with all around Monitor 40 Series II (pain to hang em up there) as surround and Heights…CSI10 for Center…I’m in heaven with this setup and I’m sure they’ll sound way better after they bound with my legendary Pioneer receiver and break in. Special thanks to the seller for the fast and safe shipping…They’re a gift from the universe for the money Read more

    These speakers are great in many ways. They produce a beautiful deep velvety sound and are also crisp and rich at the same time. They also look sleek and seem to be very solidly built. I think these speakers are an excellent value. Mind you, I haven’t made comparisons with other top brands of speaker but they truly exceeded my expectations. Read more

    The sound quality is really great. The bass is so good for low volume too. It’s worth spending that much money. Read more
