Skip the Panasonic

Any reason for that?? What about these??

I'd say the R50 is the best deal.


If you're on a tight budget, the Precision set could work.


Unless you're looking for a 5.1 alarm clock, as suggested, skip the Panasonic.

The Panasonic is weak and poor sounding. I can not speak for Precision - however, they look interesting.

These are better than the R50's and on sale for $99 each right now. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290207 I know because I own and use both in two different systems in my home. The Monitor 60's are larger and have three midbass drivers instead of two.

Panny speakers should not exist, they should stick to TV's and DVD players.

Well those Polk's come up at $150 each when I click on the link. In any event my room is only about 12ft x 20ft so it's not big. I don't need to explode the walls. LOL The Precision is $130/pair. Far better for my budget as opposed to $150/each. I hear Polk is really good and I'd love to get some but it may not be feasible for me.


Two sets of these would be far more within my budget. I'd just need to add a centre and sub.

Edit: I had the Panasonic set mentioned above in black previously and they sounded fine to me but then again I'm no audiophile.


Edit 2: How about this Polk set. I originally wanted this but it's almost $600 at Future Shop. It's only $200 on NewEgg.

If you live in Canada - you need to go to, the Newegg Canada site.


The Polk towers have sold out.


I would aim higher than the small sat speakers.

Well it doesn't matter. NewEgg ".com" does not ship to Canada it seems and their ".ca" site list all their Polk Audio products as "currently unavailable".


Well my dad has the Bose 5.1 speaker package which he has had for years and they are small "sat" speakers and they sound amazing. Bigger doesn't always mean better. Plus like I said I don't have a big room.

Wow, people are still selling them? I remember when we got a pair for $100 it was deemed the deal of the century at the time
I would just look at the Monitor 50s with a sub, or the Pioneer line.

Which speakers are you talking about that you got a pair for $100? I think the Precision Acoustics would be good enough for me. If I rounded up a five speaker set of four "bookshelf" speakers and a centre channel it would do me just fine. Just add a Sub and I'm good to go.

You bought floorstanding R50s for $150 each? I guess they are new. I have someone on craigslist trying to buy my used ones (cherry finish) for $80 as a set. I feel that's a huge ripoff...was looking to sell the pair for closer to $150 used.
