My best friend who is several provinces over (so I cant demo my system for him) is wanting to upgrade from his HTIB. Ive sent him a list of the usual suspects to check out; Polk of course being one of the lines for him to try. He came back saying that "speakers seem expensive" .... yes they are when you want better sound than a 250$ HTIB provides ... anyhow he is interested in 'Streem Speakers' that he found on the web for cheap. They look cheap and ugly just from the picture and I am very weary/suspicious of them .... my first inclination is "White Van-quality speakers". Every part of me thinks 'Rip off Cheap garbage' but I have no proof of this.
Let me know what info to pass along to him .... besides "You cant get a good 5 piece Floor standing package for 700 US for new". It would be much better to put together a Used Polk package with Monitors and the such for under 800$ than invest in these.
