5 out of 5 eggsGreat rear surrounds

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Great surround speakers, nice and clear, smaller than that 70s so they fit nicely behind the couch.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: 70 fronts, 60 rears, CS2 center, and two 12' polk subs makes a heck of a theater.

5 out of 5 eggsGood

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Excellent sound. Much better than old Bose 301 speakers they replaced. $100 is a great price for these. Later bought CS2 for center and might regret not going up to Monitor70s which might have been a better match for CS2. However the Monitor70s while likely a little better are close to twice the price.

Cons: Monitor70?

Other Thoughts: Neweggg seems to have the best prices on these Polk speakers.

5 out of 5 eggsLike 'em

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Tight and crisp.

Cons: Sound way better when driven hard. Not a con, needed to type something in here.

Other Thoughts: Great speakers for the price. A low end 5.1 AV tuner requires a subwoofer for bass when listening to music. A vintage Pioneer SA-1050 drives these things great- superb tight, thumping bass with acceptable mids and crisp treble. I wired a Niles DPS-1 and switch between the two for music and movies.

2 out of 5 eggsNot very good.

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Not a whole lot of detail. The mids lack a lot. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

Cons: Lack of detail.

3 out of 5 eggsNot very good

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Can't say I'm pleased with them. Got them a few months back to improve on my TV speakers (easy enough.)
I have them matched up with a Denon AVR-790 (not exactly new), together with their matching center channel and a Yamaha sub, both of which came later.
The truth is that to the naked eye (read ear) they are just good enough. But if for some reason you want to play music, the mid frequencies are largely absent, the lows only aided with the sub, and it is the trebles that sounds half decent.
In retrospect, I would've saved my money and bought the next Polk series of something else altogether.

Cons: Boxed in sound.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound. Physically sized right for my room.

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: The sound is great, maybe even fantastic. The Lows extend as much as midrange speakers should, and the highs are plenty high.
The look impressed a few friends, before I even plugged them in.

For a 2.1(left and right+ subwoofer) setup, these are better than my Klipsch F-30s, since these deliver the highs the F-30s are lacking.
With my F-30s these will make phenomenal rear speakers for my 5/7.1/2

Cons: I ordered my second Klipsch F-30, then changed my mind, cancelled the sale, got confirmation from Newegg that the sale was cancelled, then I purchased these. The next day I received the F-30.
Considering this pair cost roughly enough the same amount as that one speaker...

Other Thoughts: Currently powering these with a Pioneer VSX-44.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely love these speakers!

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: The sound out of the towers is crisp and clean. Definitely an upgrade to my system.

Cons: A little bulky. The towers are quite deep, but if want good acoustics, if must be so.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Speakers Bad Shipping Company

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Good speakers for the money, also purchased the CS1 center and the RC60I ceiling speakers for the rears in a 5.1 setup. The overall sound is really good for for the price paid. Would have given 5 eggs, but OnTrac shipping delivered the order with no signature and left everything sitting in the yard.

Cons: OnTrac Shipping. I contacted this shipping company, asked them to delay the delivery by 2 days because I would be out of town. They ignored me, delivered the items anyway with no delivery signature and the items sat in the backyard for 2 days. I have always been happy with newegg, but if this is a shipping company that is now being used on a regular basis, I will think twice before I order again.

5 out of 5 eggsCant beat them with a stick

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Great sounding speaker period.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Purchased 4 of these to pair with a Yamaha RX-V477 1 Polk PSW10 and CS series to sell as a NIB 5.1 system. Ended up keeping them to sub for the Polk TSX220s I was going to purchase to complete my 7.2 system with a RX-V677 at the heart. After a breif "break in" period of heavy base on the "enhancer" selection they sound amazing for a $99 speaker. The folks that say these are not good speakers are crazy. Pair these up with a Yamaha receiver and youll be fine.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: They sound great.
I bought these to replace two satellite speakers (front LR) that came with the Yamaha Receiver I bought a while back, the difference is easy to hear, Its like I am listening to different songs, everything sounds different and you can hear more audible information in the music. . . for instance background vocals in music is a lot more pronounced now, its a big upgrade and I am really enjoying them.

Cons: They are pretty tall and just 1" too high to fit where I wanted to put them, so no I have to modify the area a bit to fit them nicely (not a big deal for me), but make sure you have the space to fit these where you want before you buy.
Another con is the price on these and other polk speakers seem to fluctuate A LOT . . . +/- 30$ depending when you go to buy them, which is odd. . .
I was going to buy the 70 series but suddenly the price jumped 40$ per speaker and I decided to go with the 60 series.
They are pretty much the same thing minus one speaker.... which for me actually was probably a wiser move, since I don't want to over-load the receiver and run it too hard anyway.

Other Thoughts: Very nice speakers for the price, They are at the time of this review 99$ even... which is a steal IMO...

If you are still using those puny surround speakers that come with your receiver , I highly recommend these as a replacement.... you dont need 1000$ speakers. . . these sound great!
