That would be an easy choice for me. I'm not a big fan of Polk, but I love Dali. I have a pair of Dali Lektor 3's and love them. They are incredibly warm and detailed and they don't even have the ribbon tweeter of the higher end Dali's. I would also get the Ikon's if I had the money. Your money is best spent on speakers so if you've got the funds, get the best you can afford.

Don't be overly concerned with the review. A reviewer usually must list some sort of con to balance the pros.


Detached bass can mean that the bass level or tone does not match well with the rest of the music. This could be a function of placement rather than the actual performance of the speaker.


The Ikon series are very nice speakers. I'm sure you will be pleased.

The Ikon 5's are the best of the 3 candidates, If you buy the lower end models you'll always wonder if you should have gotten the better speakers. In the end you'll end up upgrading and the cost will be more than if you purchased what you really wanted in the first place.

The 1603 will team well with the Ikon 5 as long as prolonged, high volume use is avoided
