    Advertising revenue makes speakers sound better.

    I am surprised they reviewed these speakers. They usually only review speakers that are $20K and up.

    "The Primus 150 has achieved a standard of performance at the $200-or-under price point that I didn't think was possible."

    Interesting review. Thanks Danny.

    Pick up an R15 from Fry's instead (when they go on sale again). Speaking of sales did anyone happen to notice the sale on all Polk speakers at Crutchfield?

    I almost ordered a set for the hell of it, but they are not $30 a pair.

    From the specifications page:

    Priced as: EACH

    And the rebate says limit 1, so it looks like $90 a pair. I'll pass.

    No fan of Infinity but for $90 a pair those Primus 150's are a hell of a deal. I remember Stereophile reviewed them very favorably, considering their MSRP is $200/pair.

    I've also listened to them extensively. State of the art? Hell no. But a significant improvement over their older entry-level "Entra" series, and I would still have them over the Polk R15, M10, or Monitor30.
