I'm in the market for a 2 channel speaker system for my study office. I've been thinking about doing something nice and compact like the Athena LS-50 (http://www.audioadvisor.com/prodinfo.asp?number=ATLS50). I could add a small sub like the $100 Energy sub being sold at Costco to round things off. However, as I was perusing my local Craigslist, I noticed someone was selling some PSB Century 300i speakers for $75. They seem to be in good shape, although I haven't gone to check them out yet. The PSBs would take up a lot more desk space, although I could still fit them in reasonably well, or just get some stands. I've always wanted to try some PSB speakers, and although the 300i is from the mid/late 90's, they might be worth a look.
Does anybody have any experience with the PSB Century 300i's? Or the little Athenas for that matter? I'm thinking about getting a nice compact T-amp to power whichever I choose, as they seem to be fairly well regarded, cost little, and won't take up much desk space. Anyway, just another project to waste time on. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Receiver: H/K AVR 325
Mains: Polk RTi-38
Center: Polk CSi-30
Surrounds: Polk FXi-30
Subwoofer: SVS PB10-isd
TV: Panasonic TH-C46FD18
So nobody's heard the PSB Century 300i's? Not too surprising, really. They are over 10 years old.
I bought these speakers in the late 90's and they are still by far the best speakers I have ever owned. I think I paid around $300 for them and they sound as good today as the day I first hooked them up. If you ever can get your hands on a pair, I would strongly recommend them!!
