    I originally used my Polk Monitor 4's for "bookshelf" type listening when I was young (they were actually ON my bookshelf in a college dorm); they sound amazing for their size.

    I bought a couple of these when I re-built my 10B XO's. Found Sonic Craft to be very friendly and efficient (just not "cheap").

    It's all about the sound card and HOW it interfaces with your AVR. I have a (really old) laptop connected to my Amp via SPDIF and it sounds GREAT; you have already confirmed the DACs in your AVR...

    Added anything to your network during that time? Any new Wi-Fi networks in your area (neighbors, etc.)? Much of it uses the same unlicensed (and increasingly crowded) RF spectrum.

    I share your pain, but I have a couple of suggestions that actually haven't been mentioned:
    1) I tend to get more CD's off eBay than even Amazon these days (especially since they raised their...

    That's EXACTLY what I did with my 4's that were purchased when I was a Senior in High School. They started out in my bedroom, went to college with me (dorm room and apartment), and I still have them...

    You didn't mention/name your receiver/amplifier, but some brands are known to handle lower impedance loads better than others. FWIW, I had a 4/8 Ohm switch on my Yamaha A1, tried it both ways, and...

    I assume the 5's are FUSED instead of a polyswitch (that's the way my 4's were)? You should notice a "cleaner" mid-range after the XO rebuild because the cap drift causes a lot of over-lap between...

    You bring up a point that I've come to agree with: the BD files are so large that you down-convert them to DVD anyway. While I can convert/rip both, the file sizes and software to play them are so...

    The resister value you replace that polyswitch with will have an impact on your high end; I replaced mine with a 0.5 Ohm resister and am very happy (the PS measured out at >1 Ohm after I pulled...

    This is basically what I did years ago, except substitute "4's" for "5's". Those vintage Polks (4/5/7/10/12) make GREAT surround systems if you can collect enough of them!
