Last night I went to CC to get my copy of Indiana Jones. while I was there I checked to see if the new Polks were in.
This is what I found in the sound room.
one RTi10 in the corner. it was not hooked up grill missing. they also had the CSi5 on a shelf, I liked it until I read the price 479.00.
I then looked at the speakers that were playing in the prime selling location in the room. Sony. at 800.00 a pair.
I then was asked if I would like to take the sonys home by a Maybe 18 year old salesman. I said No in a damn hurry. I then asked why there best speakers are in the corner and were was the other one. He didn't know. I then asked him why they wanted 479.00 for the center( Cruthfield wants 399 for it). He said that Polk raised the price. I told him that was a joke because Polk had lowered most of it's list prices for this line. He then said that my info. was wrong and I wouldn't these kinds of things before the retailers did because it is such a new product. I then said that I find most consumers that do their home work before they buy know more then their sales people. I left after that.
All I have to say is that it is sad to see such a good product sold in this fashion. Polk deserves better!!
