Polk Audio T50 Speakers Review

Polk Audio T50 Speakers Review

When the Secrets Team contacted me about reviewing a pair of new Polk Audio speakers I got excited because I felt like I was going to see an old friend. Back in the 1980’s I sold Polk Audio at the audio store I worked at. I have fond memories of that time. I met Mathew Polk (and Golden Ear maven Sandy Gross who was with Polk at the time) before the famous Polk SDA era. Back then the Polk 5, 7, and 10 models were a super value for audiophiles on a budget. A good, fun bunch of guys worked with Polk back then. Polk was establishing themselves as a no nonsense, give the consumer a great speaker at a great price company. So I was curious to see if the latest Polk speaker would be like a similar value of its famous predecessors.

Induction Dynamics ID1 Floor Standing Speakers Review

The Induction Dynamics ID1's are large 4-way Floor standing Speakers with dual subwoofers built in to each cabinet. The speakers are available in many custom finishes or they can be mounted in-wall if you are building a high performance custom home theater. The speakers measured well; low distortion and a full frequency response from 25 Hz all the way out past the limits of human audibility. But that was only one part of the story. Subjectively, these speakers had an articulate sound that remained smooth and non-fatiguing at all playback levels. And they showed excellent imaging properties, filling the room with all their lusciousness.
