Well that is mighty generous of you! Kind of a foster parent speaker program!

Well, now it looks like I am heading in a different direction. The B&W "Pregnant Penguins" weren't able to beat out the SDA's or DQ10's for a spot in my main rig, but they do pair very well with my Pilot 505 tube amp. I am currently running it with Ender's old Citation 11 and it seems to be a pretty good match. So, it looks like the Polk Monitor 7A's will be the speaker currently being phased out.

I did not see a pair of Polk Monitor 7"s in the picture. I guess you were holding out on us.

The monitor 7's might be a good center channel option for my SDA 1.2TL ht rig...

LOL, no, only my "big speakers" were in that pic. The 7A's were in my bedroom waiting for me to move the tube amp back in there,

I think they would be a PERFECT match. Of course, it costs more to ship them cross country than what the actual cost of the speakers would be!
