    Default Polk Lsi vs Dyn Xcite/Audience vs Canton Vento 820

    Hi Everybody,

    Would like to have a discussion on up and downs, plus and minus, the good and bad among the listed speakers.

    You need to listen to them if you can. Then you can decide.
    Is there anything better than LSi's for the same price?

    Can't answer that, but I like the LSi so much that I have the 7's, 9's, 15's...and an LSiC. FWIW I have no plans to add the 25's to my collection.

    I will admit that price is what first got me into the LSi series. I paid more for my 9's used than I did for my 7's or 15's new (and I got a good deal on a mint pair of 9's here at CP). So I'm certain there isn't anything better for the prices I paid:D

    I paid 600 for a like new, used pair of dynaudio 70s. I LOVE them.. I wouldnt trade them for anything.. Although I just got them 3 weeks ago.. lol I was considering the polk lsi but heard so many good things about dynaudio and they definately live up to it in every way.. I upgraded from Rti8s and there really isnt a comparison..

    Well, it depends on how much you paid for the LSi15s. Yes, there are better speakers than LSi at it's Original Retail Price.

    I owned all lsi speakers from LSi25 to LSi7 and PSW1000 subs. But they are dedicated HT and multi-channel music. I have different speakers for stereo uses so definitely they are better than any LSi.
    Trying out Different Audio Cables is a Religious Affair. You don't discuss it with anyone.

    Thanks to all for the replies.

    I got the thing that it depends upon how much one can invest and what do they love to listen and that they are incomparable.

    Depending on ones taste one should go for either of brand :)

    I look at it like this, audience/xcite are the bottom of the boat for dynaudio and they seem to be on par, probably better than polks best lsi speakers. The quality with dynaudio is out of site. The Rti polks I had were cheap. Alot of plastic..
    The dynaudios are very solid and no plastic.
