Polk Audio Monitor60 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Title says it all, but for the sake of providing a valuable review - I upgraded to these speakers from a basic Samsung HTIB system, and was blown away after popping in a Tron Legacy blu-ray. These speakers make for a WORLD of a difference compared to the combo packs sold in big box stores and Wally World. Not only did they reveal sound effects that were previously unnoticeable, but they also have great bass considering that is not their main purpose. In fact, I had no idea that my sub wasn't receiving a signal until I ventured into my receiver's speaker settings and discovered the sub was disabled by the auto calibration function, which set these speakers to "Large" (this apparently disables the sub output by default).

Cons: None so far. I read other reviews complaining about the weight, but I am a rather small guy and have no complaints - very easy to carry.

Other Thoughts: An amazing value at $99 each. I would make the purchase again without thinking twice.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Amazing performance for the cost, played most games on high/ultra settings without any issues.

Cons: Randomly died during use after 6 months, with no apparent heat issues.

Other Thoughts: Ticket open with XFX, will update review/rating depending on warranty/support outcome.
