I'd test them out

I'd find a local dealer with both brands of speakers and test them out to see which sound you prefer from Polk vs Infinity. My home theater is made up of the Infinity Primus line and I really like the sound. They aren't pretty to look at but for the money, they are great quality for that price range. Their sound is considered on the 'bright' side I think.

Polk makes some more aesthetically pleasing models, but I'm not sure Polk is a great value for the sound quality.

There are SO many speaker companies out there though. If you can, try to find demos of PSB, Aperion, AV123, B&W, etc.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
