Im running a htr-5460 on a rt35i and my seconds mains are a klh 900b...the klh's i got for 84 dollars, and the rt35i's for 300, the klh's slaughter the 35's in my music but the 35's slaughter the klh's in ht....neone else noticed this? the klh is a more airy sound and the 35's are more of a flat sound when playing music........newayz i was bored and i thoguht i'd post my oppinion...what do ya think?
Damn you all, damn you all to hell.......

    My opinion is that I can't believe that you are comparing Polk to KLH. :)

    They aren't even in the same league.

    I'm with Phuz on this one.

    You must Have some KLH's I've never seen, because all the ones I've heard can't hold a candle to Polk's. But that's just my opinion:)

    KLH vs POlk?????
    No man wrong league.....Polk smokes Klh in every way.
    But if you like the KLH don't let any of us stop you.

    What kind of music? Details, broham, details. We all hear what we hear but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

    Generally, I find if a speaker is musical it will also do well with HT.

    Rucy, you got some 'splaining to do.....

    with the klh dont sound good in ht with my other polks...cs245i, rt25i....the 35i's of course sound better.... the 35i's when played loud playing stuff like lp and creed, 12 stones etc...the drums sound faded....on the 900b's you hear all the instruments....but then again i could be wrong and just imagining things
    lol...

    They KLH may not be as flat responding as the POLK, and some of these insturments that you are hearing shouldn't be as loud as they are.

    What kind of amp, or reciever are you using?

    The KLH is a much worse speaker, they just sound bad, are you sure what you are listening to is what you are supposed to hear?

    Ok you guys I love you but give him a break. KLH was the first real
    speaker I owned. They were good back in the day. Developed by
    the late Henry Kloss who also invented Acoustic Research, Advent,
    and Cambridge Sound Works, all of which are still around today. I
    to don't think they compete with polk. But they were the prelude to what we enjoy today. No way Matt Polk didn't look at, and listen to these, take the best from them. Now having said that...
    MxStYlEpOLKmAn get you some Polks man........

    Let's not confuse the KLH of today with the KLH a la the late Henry Kloss.......the hifi world of today owes MUCH of where it is today to Mr. Kloss

    Vintage KLH's be some DAMN fine speaks. Ima get my KLH model 17 on here in about a week and a half at Senor Grand's Rancho de No Concerno.....

    Personally, I'd give my left nugget for a pair of Model 9's

    Most of us are well aware of the history, but the KLH of yesterday and today, are no-where even close to each other.

But the 35i's are the better....
