Hi guys Im looking to replacement my Monitor 50's. I was cleaning them yesterday and I noticed the dust caps were "melted" at least thats how they look. I called Polk and they said they were most likely driven to hard. Well My avr is 90w RMS and the Monitors are rated up to 150w so I thought that 90w RMS would be modest. Well either way I an looking to get something better than the 50's. There is the obvious choices of Monitor 60's, 70's and the new 55T. 65T, and 75T series. Well I also looked into brands that mach my AVR Yamaha RXV661. I found a pair of NS-777 towers for about $400 which is an obvious steal. I know how to do the research and read reviews and they are rated pretty good but I cant find anything comparing the Yamaha's to the Polk Audio. Anyway I would like to hear some other suggestions for tower speakers in the $400-$500 a pair price range. I listen to a mix of music and movies and I have no sub woofer hooked up. Although Crutchfield has a Polk promo were they will offer a free 8" sub if I spend 500. Well let me know what you guys think.
