5 out of 5 eggs Very Impressive! 11/20/2013

This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single

Pros: Excellent sound, quality construction, professional look, another great Polk Audio product

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have been a home theater enthusiast for 30 years, ever since my next door neighbor showed off his system and I caught the bug... (dang that guy!)

Since that time and after many systems and many upgrades, my latest being the Pioneer SC-1222K A/V Receiver, I decided to replace my 20 year old Sony left and right mains. I've been watching the Monitor 70's for some time, just waiting for the right price. Well, when they went on sale for $149 each, free shipping, I couldn't jump on it fast enough!

The sound quality is unbelievable! My HT room is huge at 22'x40' and these main speakers are the perfect fit, along with the 4 Polk Audio surrounds and Polk Audio Center Channel. This was the (next to) last installment in my home theater system, (the last being the PSW505 12" 300w sub, which is on it's way to my house as we speak!) [figure of speech, I know neither of us is speaking..... :) ]

I can't give the Monitor 70's anything but 5 stars, no negatives or criticism, nothing but praise - highly recommended!

5 out of 5 eggs 6 Month Follow-up Review 11/07/2013

This review is from: Pioneer SC-1222-K 7.2-Channel Network Ready AV Receiver

Pros: Excellent Power, crisp sound, versatility, equalizer for each of 7 channels independently, much more.

Cons: Buttons on remote are small and hard to read.

Other Thoughts: I thought I should write a follow-up review after having this receiver for over 6 months of daily use. I also felt it necessary to come on board to defend this product after reading so many negative reviews (hard to understand this).

Not only have I found nothing to complain about, but I have found this to be one of the finest receivers on the market. I've been a Home Theater enthusiast for over 30 years and when I decided to do an upgrade for my new HT room, I wanted to "do it right".

After months of research, I finally decided on the SC-1222-K. As it turns out, my research paid off. The perfect blend of power and features for my Home Theater. The Class D amp is a huge feature which easily drives my 7.1 Polk Audio system and complete fill my HT room, which, by the way, is 22' x 40'! Just like a move theater, at ANY volume. It is so clear that you can hear a pin drop, or it can rock the rafters....

On the "Con" side, as you have read, the only con is the small buttons and small text on the remote, especially in a darkened room. Since I use a Harmony remote this is really a non-issue.

Yes, I am not only defending this product, but I am highly recommending it. You will not be disappointed!
