Bottom Line:   
I just received these Polk Monitor 70's, which I bought unauditioned based on price & specs. They are replacing some very old Mirage speakers that were once terrific, but had seen better days. I live in NM, and it is hard to audition out here. However, I had auditioned excellent Paradigm Monitor 7 & 9 speakers connected up to high end electronics in a store. My Polk's are connected to an old Yamaha RX 770 receiver. I had only paid $ 199 ea for these Polk's new thru Amazon. NO WAY to beat these Polk's at that price !!! The Polk's sound probably 95% as good as did the Paradigm's. The Polk's have excellent bass & power, the Paradigm's had an edge in imaging, but I do not know how much of that edge is the speakers themselves as compared with how much might be due to high end electronics vs. my basic receiver.

All in all, it has only been a couple of days, but I am thrilled with these Polk's in terms of performance for the value.

Bottom Line:   
I recently purchased a pair of monitor70s from an individual who had upgraded to another speaker. I bought the speakers mainly from reviews I had read. These speakers were an upgrade from a pair of jbl 4800s that I have had for about 16 years. I am hearing things in music that I had never heard before. The clarity and crisp delivery of music from these speakers is genuinely ear candy. So far any music that I have thrown at these speakers has been a joy to listen to. I have read from some reviews that a sub was needed to deliver appropriate bass but I disagree and am very satisfied with the bass from these speakers. That being said if used in a home theater situation I could see some wanting a sub. For the money I think these speakers rival many that cost twice as much and there is value in that. The first polk speakers I have owned and probably not the last if this is indication of their speakers.
