Polk TSi100 Bookshelf Loudspeakers Reviewed

 

Full of Polk's proprietary technologies, including dynamic balance drivers, flared ports, and a narrow front baffle, the TSi100 delivers a stylish exterior coupled with above average performance, with crisp high frequencies and a midrange relatively...

The TSi100 offers performance very close and similar in character to a good British mini-monitor ; The TSi100 presents music in a refined, balanced, musical way, with an even tonal balance, great soundstaging, and versatility over all types of music ;...

The TSi100's midrange sounded a bit hollow at times ; The TSi100's bass fell a bit short in terms of overall weight and punch ; The TSi100 needs placement closer to the rear wall for optimal sound quality

The Polk TSi100 really makes a nice impression, combining musical refinement and versatility in a beautiful and compact package. While sounding a bit lightweight overall and lacking the ultimate in midrange liquidity, for its price it sounds...

Polk Audio TSi100

 

The Polk Audio TSi100 is a high-quality bookshelf speaker that sounds good for music or as part of a home theater system. For full-range sound, it could be paired with a subwoofer or used as part of a home theater setup with the great Polk Audio TSi400...

Excellent cabinet construction. Broad frequency response range with good sensitivity

Mid-range frequencies can sound a bit empty on some recordings

All in all, a top-quality bookshelf speaker at a price that is a bargain.

Great sounding bookshelf speakers!

 

This is my first home theater system that wasn't one of those home theaters in a box. So I have done a lot of research and read many articles and reviews about what to do and not do, what numbers to pay attention to like frequency range and db...

These speakers have very full, rich sound and I couldn't be happier! I have always heard good things about Polk but have never actually owned any. Up until recently I have always used HTIB systems and they sounded good to me until I finally built my...

The only thing that could potentially be a con is the ones I got had dual binding posts. If you don't know a lot about home theater it could be a little confusing. I wasn't sure if I needed to run two wires from each of the receiver outputs to the...

Hi-FI ive this one!

 

These speakers sing with a good sound source. Poor recordings are just that but well done recordings will sound remarkable for a low cost bookshelf speaker.

I have owned the TSi-100 for over a year. Purchased from Newegg with quick delivery and all intact. I purchased these for my modest bedroom system of a 2ch receiver and no sub as I have this play softly all night long. At night I turn the base all the...

You have to dust them once in awhile

1st Piano in my house

 

The appearance, fit and finish is first rate! Polk even included felt pads to put on the bottom of the speaker to prevent scratches! The Shiny hard plastic on the speaker top is really a fine touch that sets this apart from others in looks.

Just received my Polk TSI-100 speakers. These are for a small bedroom system. Results...bedroom not large 17x18...breaking them in on Sat Dish channel...listened...thought "Ok, these sound pretty good, left them on and went to my great room off the...

Great Speakers

 

I updated my front speakers in my Living Room surround system with these. They are great. The sound is full and rich compared to my small Pioneer speakers they replaced

Kind of heavy but expected

Very happy with TSi100s

 

I have these pared with a CS-10. They compliment each other well. I also have a Harmen-Kardon sub. These would be to light on the low end without a sub. I had to get rid of my big AR's several years ago. They did not fit the decor, according to my...

The sound is good for the price ; The black matches my other components ; Wall brackets and standoffs allow me to hang then on the wall ; Sound placement is good ; If you have some really really good front speakers, these would make good surround...

Obviously at this price they are not pro speakers ; They don't seem to handle things when you really crank them, but they are not meant for a concert hall

Impressed

 

Currently being used in a 2.0 setup with an Onkyo TX-SR304 receiver in a small room. The plan is that they will eventually be integrated into a full setup as the rear satellites. They sound amazing listening to music and are more than adequate for...

The crispest highs I've ever heard from any speaker I've ever listened to. Very clean and accurate sound. Warm mid range. Decent bass but that's definitely not what they're designed for

Another Great Deal From Newegg!

 

Currently using these as front speakers with Polk CS10 center, PSW10 subwoofer and a Yamaha RX-V365 receiver. I primarily use my surround sound system for my Xbox 360 and my Sony BDP-S350 blu ray player and occasionally music from my macbook via...

Awesome speakers! These are currently being used as my front speakers in a 3.1 configuration for my room. I purchased these speakers from newegg on sale for $130. Definitely worth that money I spent on them to upgrade from my Sony bookshelf SS-B1000...

The pictures shown on newegg of the TSi100s showed them to bi-ampable. Apparently the picture on newegg is incorrect. While my receiver does not have the ability to bi-amp, I was still shocked to find out about it. The specs on newegg correctly list...
