Are the LSiM speakers discontinued/all gone?

According to Polk's website - they have been on "backorder" for more than 6 months.

    Call Polk and ask them, and then report back here with what they say.
    Got Dayens?
  • New24kNew24k Posts: 50
    I sent them an email...

    And, of course, they didn't respond.

    I will try calling and see what BS they give me.

    Well, according to Ken at Polk - they are expecting new shipments of LSiM speakers (from wherever they are made) in July and August...

    Wow, guess they had another batch built and they're on the ship coming over from China. Interesting!

    Good speaker, glad they're still in production, but I wonder what will be next.

    Should I hold off and not get the LSiM setup?

    Will it be comparable (or better) than the LSiM speakers?

    Or is it going to be something below the LSiM?

    Legally he cannot say one way or another without being in violation of the NDA.

    I agree. Didn't sign any NDA, but yes, the next series should be eye opening (but with your ears).

    Edit...

    If you want LSIM’s there are places out there. If you want used, many more.

    Cheers

    OK, if you didn't sign any NDA... what's all the secrecy? lol

    Just like to know if it will be comparable (or better?) than the LSiM series... :)

    Supposedly many times better is what I’ve heard...
    Not Tom, or Trey, or Jim
    Main setup:
    Speakers are one of three, Mission Freedom 770 IV’s, Polk LSi25’s, or Polk SDA-CRS (stock XO, SL2000’s, Blade/Blade model). Electronics are as follows: for the LSi’s and SDA’s, a Technics SU-v75 acting as a phono preamp, into a Yamaha RX-v665, into a Crown XLi800 power amplifier. For the Missions, I have a Lafayette LR-1100. Turntable is a Technics SL-3200, with a Shure M97xE. Cables are generic/soon to be replaced garbage.
    An old post I found on AK, from 2013.
    I've always thought the goal of high end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Wait, that's the new 15" MacBook Pro. Sorry, mixed those up.

    I agreed to not spill any beans to the community, so what am I worth if I can't keep to my word? Maybe I can get away with saying that Polk is moving forward by looking back... The end result should be staggering.

    The Polk tour I went on was over about 17 months ago, I was only given a small glimpse, very small glimpse. Who knows maybe they moved to something different.

    There was a post a while back that Polk was going to 3 main speaker series. Only Polk can tell us when they are ready.

    I do know that if you're looking for a new set of speakers. Deals on the LSiM's are fantastic for a very good speaker. I also doubt that they will offer deals on a new line of high end speakers like they are for the LSiM.

    Bottom line is who knows other than Polk.
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

    The REAL burning question about a new series from Polk is not if they are better than LSiM, but whether or not they are better than a set of SRS 1.2TL's with all the mods and upgrades. >:) o:)

    This thread got me to thinkin' -- when it comes to loudspeakers, is better linear or logarithmic?

    "A new level" of what, exactly?

    8 cubic feet or more puts one in "big" territory, as far as I am concerned.
    Anything smaller is pretty much bookshelf.

    I have been so actively resisting them...
    I hope they got sold... but I may go over tomorrow and see if they're still there (the place is only open on Saturdays).


    In fact, someone do me a favor, buy 'em and put 'em on a boat to Asia or take 'em home or... whatever. Save me from myself. :)
