Hello

I listened the TSi300, and found them great...Is there any other choice, cheaper? Or is there any good deal for the TSi300?

Thanks

You could bid on some RTI10s at Polk ebay's site for $207 for the pair.

Or RTI8s for $139 for the pair.

just stirring the pot....

The RTi line is definitely a 'step up' in the Polk line of speakers.

Think BMW 328i then step up to the 528i.

I went to Best Buy this morning (Magnolia) and told the guy i was looking for some floorstanding speaker, cheap and thin.
He immediately proposed me the Mirage Omnisat V2 FS (they are on sale at @300 each)
But I wasn't able to compare them with the TSi300...So it's hard to tell!! I wasn't impressed with the center, but the 2 main speakers sounded good...
how would you compare those speakers with the PolkAudio you mentioned?

I have no sonic experience with the Mirage speakers....best advice is to go with what you like and what you think sounds best!

Enjoy the journey!

I think my only option is to check at the return policy for each store, and then conduct my own trials at home!!!
