    Polk's lineup is VERY confusing right now, and their website does not make it easy to understand the pecking order, so this is a good question. Here's the way I see it, top to bottom:

    - LSiM
    - RTiA
    - TSx, TSi, Monitor, Monitor II (all very similar)
    - R/T/M
    2-Channel:

    Source 1: PC
    Source 2: Rega Apollo CDP
    USB > SPDIF Converter: Stello U3
    DAC: Audio GD NFB-7
    Preamp: Audio Research LS-15
    Power Amp: BAT VK-500
    Speakers: Magnepan 3.7's

    HT:

    Source 1: HTPC
    Source 2: Oppo 103
    Pre/Pro: Marantz av8003
    Power Amp: Rotel RMB-1095
    Fronts: LSiM-705's
    Center: LSiM-704c
    Surrounds: LSiM-702's
    Subs: Dual SVS PC12-NSD's

    I think pecking order should be grouped by a model line and age in the least to make any sense.
    For example:
    Vintage Monitors: 12, 11, 10, 7, 5, 4...
    SDA: 1.2TL's, 1.2, 2.3TL, 2.3, SRS, 3.1TL, 1C, CRS+, 2B, 1A, 2, CRS...
    S models: S10, S8, S6, S4
    LS line: LS90, LS70, LS50...
    Then there are newer RTA towers, 15TL, 11TL, 8TL followed by modern HT towers (LSI, RTi) etc...

    So clear as mud?

    Boston A400,VR950, DefTech BP10,, Klipsch Forte,KSP-400,KSF-C5,RF3,RC3.
    JBL L20t,L80t3, EPI 20+,T/E 280, Polk 4,4.5,7C, KEF Coda III, Yamaha NS-690, Genesis 3+.
    SUB:Deftech PF15TL+, DCM TB1010, Velodyne VA08BVX10. Pre: HK AP2500. Amps: BB175, Adcom GFA-535,555II, Rotel RB-990BX.

    I assumed the OP was referring to current speaker lines.

    Quoting the spam post only allows it to live after the moderators remove the original post.

    It's hard to beat the LSiM with any Polk speakers.

    Fixed!!! Of course these are my list of favorites..



    I could include LSi 7's, 9's, LS90's, RTiA9's, and RT55i's.


    I know some would include the 11t's, and 15t's but I am not a fan of them except for parts..

    No love for the SRS 2s? Personally I would rank them above the 3.1s and 1Cs.
