just got some Polk Monitor 70s 40s & a CS2 hooked up to my Onkyo HT-RC180 & i've been listening to cds, lps for 5 hours solid now & i'm just blown away with the awesome power & musical fidelity with these speakers. bass is good, treble could be better but the avr compensates for that. i have a BIC F12 sub & it just complements what the Polks do, so one happy camper here. Big upgrade for me from what i was using, Mordaunt-Short Carnival 2, 3, 5 setup, good speakers but lack the Ooomph! the Polks put forth. it takes me forever to save $$ to buy anything, so i'm totally happy with my purchase. no doubt there's better stuff out there, but for my lil abode, this is Good
next thing on my bucket list is to get a lava lsp12 & see how that sounds!
After reading tons of threads on the sub forum, was set on an HSU STF-2 then an Outlaw & think I've finally settled on a Rythmik FV12. Watched War Horse & the sub I have really put out the grunt but think I want something more, must be upgrade fever!
