This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor60C Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Cherry) Single
Pros: clear intelligable sound for good price.Bi amp set up way cool for stereo music and movie listening. Cherry looks very good for imitation finish, they match my wood surroundings and my audio challenged significant other even noticed the inprovement over the Very good 25 yr old Sony speakers I had on my system. And did i mention the price !
Cons: These speakers sounded so good started jamming them right out the box without proper setup of my pioneer vsx 1020 recivier and wound up blowing a driver in one of the speakers what a bummer!
Other Thoughts: if you set up yor reciever (auto calibration) then hook these bad boys you will be glad you did I would like tohave a 5.1 s thats, But thats comming later . But for now bi amping these spekerkers is the way to goREAD FULL REVIEW
