First off, I'll say this-they won't shake the house down-you'll need a sub. Don't deduct stars off the review because they won't do what they're not designed to do.

I got these from the Polk Direct store refurbished(but they look new)on an Ebay auction. For about 60% of what they cost new, I stole them!! For that price, I didn't get what I paid for-I got much more.

Here's the setup. Powered by a Harman Kardon 75 watt per channel stereo 2 channel(not home theater surround)receiver. They are mounted on the wall about 6 feet high aimed in and down toward the listening area. They are about 17 lbs, so get heavy duty brackets that are rated for at least 20 lbs if you want to wall mount.

These are the best sounding speakers I've ever had. Ok, I've never had any real high end speakers, such as Paradigm, but these are the best so far. Highs are crisp and clear. Mids and vocals are warm not muddy. The staging is awesome. There's plenty of bass-I'm generally talking about mid bass-they're not subs-remember? There's certainly no gap between these and the sub's crossover frequency.

They've been cranked up pretty loud and did not distort. But the best news is efficency. You won't need much power to get these TSi200s sounding good and loud. Definitely the loudest bookshelf I've had. And can compete with some foorstanding speakers in the efficency department.

Being refurbs, I don't know if they have enough hours on them to be broken in. But I've got about 10 hours on them so far and they sound great. If you crank up some heavy metal loud, they can sound a bit harsh. But that can be said for just about any speaker. With jazz they amaze me. The saxophone sounds like it's here in the room.

These bookshelf speakers have been bought to replace smaller, less expensive bookshelf units, mostly because the first one I purchased (Polk M-10, on sale) were lacking too much in the lower frequencies for my taste. I know, you can't expect any real bass from bookshelf speakers, but nonetheless.

Anyway, I just brought the TSi200 home a few hours ago and had them do a very minimal burn-in for a few hours whilst I was doing something else (they are paired with a Yamaha RX-397 receiver, as an home office sound system -- this is not my main audio rig!). I got back to them when I took a break from working on my house, giving a "quick listen" to a few ripped CDs. I know they are not fully broken in and are not in their final "resting place", but, the first impression is as follow:

* surprisingly bass-heavy.
* a bit bright on the top-end, but I'll put this on the account of their non broken-in state and the source material.
* surprisingly detailed, for such inexpensive speakers.
* placement might be more important than one might think, being rear ported.

Again, this is just an initial review and I will have come back with a follow-up. These speakers appear to be a very good bet for a secondary sound system. Initial gut reaction would be that, properly fed, properly placed (too close to the wall and the bass appears to become muddy), these speakers should be able to sing. They might well be quite an audio bargain. Let's say that I got what I was searching for (wider frequency range) and that I do not feel ripped off.

Verified Purchase
This Polk TSi200's are great bookshelf speakers, hard to beat for the price.

After too much good reviews on Polk Audio products I finally decided to get a pair of TSi200 for my room.

I bought them in black, the first thing I noticed when they where out of the box, is that they are solid built and look great, especially the top of the speakers on glossy black. I appreciate good and simple designs, and this speakers look timeless, they'll blend in wherever you put them, they look better with the covers off, no kids or cats on the house, so no problem on damaging the drivers, the tweeters seem really sensible and fragile, so if you have kids or pets in the house, keep the covers on.

So, how do they sound?.

After unpacking, I went to my room and connected them to an HK 3390 and put on Eric Clapton's Slowhand SACD on my Onkyo C-S5VL and I was immediately blown away with the clarity and sound stage this little speakers communicate, I could tell precisely where in space Eric was sitting in front of me, really great and totally unexpected experience from this little Polks. The experience was great no matter what other CD's and LP's where played, my collection is basically Beatles, Rolling Stones, Creedence, Radiohead, AIR, some indie bands, some Jazz and the likes.

They replaced a pair of old Onkyo floor-standing speakers. The sound coming from the Polks is bigger and fuller, wider sound stage, I know my Onkyo's are 10 year old, but I wasn't expecting much better sound from a package 1/4 the size.

I strongly recommend getting a Sub-woofer (I did), the TSi200's don't reproduce low frequencies that good, but that is expected based on the size and configuration of the drivers.
