Wish I were near enough to give a listen to yours.


Unfortunately, right now I have more gear than places to put it. Especially Polk Speakers!

You not only have OCCD, now we can officially put you into the PCCD group along with me :lol:

Edit: Woops that should be OPCD :lol:

Yeah. I can't seem to turn down a good opportunity to pick up either one.

This is my first ever Tube Amp, just finished by OTD. I should have it sometime next week. I just bought a set of Polk Monitor 5's to pair with it!

I received the tube amp today. The smoothest sounding amp I have ever heard. I'm running it direct with no tone control and I am thrilled with the results. Very full sound. I am starting to see what all the fuss is about regarding tubes!!!

Now to find a time to watch the LED's bounce when the wife and baby are not around...

A freshly recapped M1 is a beautiful thing! Enjoy! (I just bought my third MKII this week!)

I can't wait to get my garage remodel finished so that I can actually hear these in a space that allows them to perform at the level they are meant to. In the small room I have them jammed into right now, they are a bit stifled. I haven't even bothered hooking up the SDA cable yet.

Once you get some space and let those bad boys sing, they'll blow you away Travis! Those are some fantastic speakers. Do you know the history on them? Have they had the Xovers rebuilt and/or any of the Club Polk mods done yet?

They are stock. I plan on upgrading the tweeters first, then having the x-overs done down the road. I already have the dynamat for the baskets.

Sounds like a plan Travis =D> Doing these upgrades to my SDA 2B's and SRS 2's made a world of difference. If you can get with Larry (Toolfan66) over on the Polk forum, he might still have some of the mounting rings for the MW and PR. Highly recommended. Look forward to hearing your thoughts on the sound as you go along.

He does and he is thinking about another run IIRC.

I am debating picking up some for my RTA 11TL drivers (minus the PR) and maybe some tweeter brackets too if he has any left (which I dont think he does unless he runs more).

If life ever brings you anywhere near Indiana, I'd be more than happy to put you up for a couple days and you could check mine out first hand!
