—For the past 30+ years Ive owned only Polks . Great company !—
FWIW, I agree. They are the best “bang for the buck” for me. I confess I am partial to cloth dome tweeters too. My first good speakers were ADS L810’s. They even had a dome midrange.
Polk is my “buy and forget” brand. If you spend a LOT of time shopping around and listening, you may find something better, but life is short. :-)
Ever since I was old enough to know better, I’ve loved Polk speakers . Bought my first pair ( floor standing but at the moment can’t remember the model # ) around 1981-2 . Shipped them along with entire stereo system when I moved to Japan in 1985 . Used until 1995 and then sold them ( entire system actually ) to my Tokyo neighbor before returning to the States where I planned to buy a completely new system . She is still using those speakers by the way . In NH bought Onkyo components & Polk LS-50 pair . Long story but had to return to Japan 6 months after getting back and shipped the stereo along with other stuff back to Japan . A few years later , after the warranty had expired , I experienced a little distortion in one speaker . Determined that it was definitely a tweeter or driver buzz so contacted Polk by phone . Explained the problem and they asked for my address in Japan . Sent me not only one but two complete sets of drivers and tweeters via Express at NO CHARGE ! Unreal , right ? Not giving them up anytime soon. http://www.polkaudio.com/products/ls50
