The 947 is said to sound brigher than the 938. Pick your poison.

It's your personal preference really. Like Navin has said, if you like your sound bright, choose the 947.

How good is the Polk dB 690 when compared to the jbl GTO 938. They both have similar technical specs of power output.

The 938 should be 3600 or more with B&W. The 947 is about 400-600 more. The GTO components would be 6K or less, the GT5 even lesser. Check in shops near you for the exact price.

@jmddis, don't go by the tech specs - the actual sound signature cannot be described there. Polk db is really bright as compared to 938, with about the same bass output.
