     So I recently purchased some equipment for my HT.  I picked up 2 of the Polk Monitor 70's and the Monitor 25C as a center.  They were matched and all was good in the world...except when one of the 70's started acting up.  It was only 2 weeks old and I ended up having to send it back to New Egg...

     I'm looking for nice speakers for acoustic music. We listen to mostly classical (symphonic and chamber music), choral, folk, soundtracks, show tunes, soft rock, and some jazz. We'll use the sound system for movie HT also, but we don't care about shaking the floor. I'll probably eventually have...

    Hi there. I'm trying to get a pair of "intermediate" speakers... what that means: i will have my final set next year, when i move to a new place around july. So for now, instead of wasting a lot of money on something that will probably not match my next place, i'm scouring craigslist for a...

     I currently have a Yamaha HTR-5590 that is working fine for my current surround setup. I've bought a new house (haven't moved in yet to set this up so this a hard question I realize), but am curious if I should upgrade or not. I have bought 2 pairs (4 speakers) of Polk Monitor 70's for the...

    Over the last week I've been piecing together a new system for my living room. The living room itself is only about 15x16, but it's a large open area including the kitchen and dining room that makes the whole space 28x22 plus a 12x12 dining room off to the side. I primarily use the room for...

    I currently am using a Polk VM30 as a center channel because I got a smoking open box deal on it, but they only had one. It sounds fantastic currently with my hodgepodge 5.1 system with a Yamaha HTR-5590 in a really small living room. I'm about to move into a larger house with living room about...

     Hi all,    I'm new to the audiophile world. I've always been in love with sound. I am an amateur pianist (been playing for 20 years now). The first thing I bought when I had the money was an acoustic piano because I couldn't stand the sound from my older digital piano (a fairly high end one)...

     Okay, I'm in the market to start my HT and I have my eyes on these two speakers. I have done some research online but I didn't see too much comparison or discussion about these two. So anyone who has experience with both speakers can share some opinion? I'd prefer some real comparison...
