Hello guys,
Quick question:
The polk t15 bookshelf speakers are available for 50$ on Amazon.com. It will cost around 6.5k rs on importing.
Similarly the center speaker polk t30 for 65$ and will cost around 7.5k rs.
Is it worth importing these speakers at this price? Or can I get better speakers for same price in India? Please advise.

Sir, you really think any dealer/distributor would offer you any american product at even the US MRP in India leave alone discounted prices there? I would recommend to buy from Amazon and ship to India...

9,200 for the same model. I think it might not be worth it to import, as customs/shipping might get you in the same ball park. sadly it is out of stock listed on their website.

Checked the site. Both are out of stock. But then I called profx Delhi and they say it it can be made available and quoted 9.5k for t15. And said t30 can also be made available.
Now that really puts me in dilemma.

Look at similar priced product offering aval in India - https://www.ebay.in/itm/Taga-Harmony-TAV-806S-Surround-Speaker-Perfect-match-for-TAV-806F-TAV-806C/282716897066?hash=item41d33d7f2a:g:eOYAAOSw241YiYKo

An other similar priced product - Taga Harmony TAV-806C Center Speaker Perfect match for TAV-806F, TAV-806S | eBay

Why sweat over importing stuff.. For the total of 14K, that you might end up spending, you have products in India..

Use coupon code if any and avail discounted price..

Why dilemma? Sounds like a good deal. Just buy from profx.

Though I feel you are right, but taga is relatively new brand and polk seems to be the better of two. And I just have to add my speakers to an already incoming shipment of PS4.
So I guess I will just go ahead and order only the bookshelfs and leave the center speaker.

Well dilemma because he said it can be made available and isn't available right away. So that could make him quote different prices later. And my friend is importing PS4 as it's available for 200$ so I just have to add the speakers.

Well...you need then to make the choice......

ProFx usually ropes in 10% discount and i believe their stated prices includes 18% GST on speakers and 28% on subwoofers...

Hmm okay. I would still suggest profx. You could get other smaller accessories like dacs, cables, interconnects, etc from the US.

I read this post after I placed the order. Didn't know profx gives 10%discount. Anyways I would still get it cheaper from Amazon.

Took the plunge yesterday. Ended up paying 6k for the bookshelf speakers including customs. Sometimes they do return customs if they overcharged. But I won't have to pay a penny above 6k.
Just ordered monoprice rcas along with it.
Now the wait begins.


Warranty....LOL!

Well i hope its not required. Already took the plunge.

But thanks for the help guys. I will update the thread when I receive them.

Now the hunt for a budget amp starts.

Has anyone tried the Byford audio amp? How's the bluetooth connection stability? How's the overall sound quality? Is this a warm or bright amp? Please advise.
