Polk TSi200 speaker
My actual rating to be precise is between Excellent and good. These is phenomenal and goof looking pair of front satellite speakers with highs that are crystal clear as are the mids, better than many other speakers in the same price range. In a mome theatre 7.1 environment, the audio imaging and spectrum response is excellent. One also needs to use 12 AWG gage wiring to truely relise their full potential!!!
A very near miss, good bang for the buck, but not 1 of the true greats
OK, many rave reviews on these speakers but I have a less shining opinion... the rear ported bass response is rich, natural sounding and deep compared to many full range bookshelf speakers but unfortunately, the highs are edgy and harsh to the ear in the 3k - 5k range. They do not lack high end sizzle as much as those frequencies are overpowered by the sharp frequencies the tweeters seem to emphasize. The lack of warmth and smoothness in the high end can be rectified when sweetened up with a 3db+/- dip at around 4k using a 10 or more band equalizer. With most amps & receivers, the frequency bands boosted or rolled back by a single treble control is just not in the proper range to control the offending high end sound. Overall, usable but disappointing.
Close to hifi nirvana!
My first experience with Polk speakers was about 4 years ago when I was listening to various brands in a store with my sister who was about to make a purchase. She agreed that the Polk "sound bar" was the right choice for her new TV. Since then I always looked to Polk audio and I have purchased their Atrium outdoor speakers for my deck. I am so glad that I bought the TSi200's for TV viewing. They are without a doubt exactly what speakers should be. Great bass and crisp at the top. A real pleasure to listen to, but remember... you'll need 50 watts or more per channel for these little gems. These speakers prove that when you are really serious about finding great sound you will have to spend a little more money, but believe me... you'll be glad you did!
Well Worth the money
i purchased the TSi200's to replace my main front channel speakers which were some old Pioneer hand me downs I acquired in college. The Pioneers are nothing special...as in they are pretty average at everything and definitely don't suck. I moved them to the rear channel to ultimately complete my home theater 5.1 surround sound. I performed my first test with the opening scene in Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith. I was simply blown away at the quality of the sound and extreme detail. The TSi200's excel at clarity in the mid and high ranges. You can hear crystal clear details down from the chards of glass bouncing against interstellar objects. The sound transitions are also of note. Between the 2 fronts and the center channel, the transitions are so fluid that it's nearly indistinguishable which sound is coming from which speaker. This may be more a testament to the processor than the speakers, but worth mentioning. If I were to rank the most impactful speaker improvements I've made to my home theater these would rank 2nd. Nothing changes a home theater experience like a sub woofer. 1. Polk PSW10 2. Polk TSi200 3. Adding Rear Channel Speakers 4. Polk CS3 Center ChannelRead full review
