I got a pair of Monitor 10s with the SL2000 tweets on the cheap ($200 with a free stereo amp included). I also got a PSW 505 for $200 w/ free shipping. I assure you, no one thinks my stereo sounds like it cost $400. I trust Polk now. They produce a high-quality and accessible product for a good price. The Monitor 10s are the best sounding speakers I have ever owned and they're not going anywhere.
Get this... I love fun.
