I bought a pair off trademe for $400 on christmas eve. I won the auction for $285 without reaching reserve. He gave me a fixed offer of 400, i consorted with brody05 who said he would take them off me if i was unhappy with them. I push the button and arrange to pick them up the next day, and guess what....... Theyre in as new condition, damn i love it when that happens!
Anyways i get them home play all sorts of music/movie scenes through them and am just blown away. I just am totally amazed with these speakers, so much so that brody05 aint gettin his hands on these.hahaha. The wife thinks they have enough bass for her but i will add a sub a psw650 hopefully if not that am not really sure which one. These have to rate as one of the best polk has ever made (sda's aside). The power handling, the bass (for a bookshelf), the sheer smothness, and that all important toe-tap-factor, its all there in spades. Oops im raving now, i'll move on.
p.s As for last night brody05, thank you (and tania) for the entertaining evening. Your animal flesh searing skills were impeccable.
Those 3000's, yeah like i said i could live with them now, but those tops are still imo gasping that little bit compared to the 55i's. As for the drivers, dont sweat it, i'd have done that for anybody and anyways i'm positive you would have done the same.
btw the wife thinks youre a nutcase with how loud you listen to it.;)
