Hello, I picked up a pair of Monitor 10A's (at least I think they're 10A's) at the GW a couple of days ago. Never had Polks before, but have been a vintage collector for a couple of years now.
Put these on the main rig yesterday, in place of a pair of DCM TimeFrame TF-350's. Immediately noticed a good deal more bass, without any apparent boominess. They didn't come with stands, so put them on makeshift stands, tilted back at the same angle as the TF 350's.
I've been all over the web looking for specs, measurements and opinions on these. Opinions appear to be highly favorable, other than some comparison with the Monitor 7's. The 10's are considered to be a bit muddier in the midrange than the 7's?
These have the fake Rosewood veneer, chipped a bit on the back, and scratched on the top. Some say it looks "hideous", I dunno, I wish it were real Rosewood, but for $40/pr, I'm not complaining - and it sorta matches the Rosewood on my JVC TT. :)
They have (I think) the Peerless tweeters with the little pin-prick hole in the center.
So, I listened to these all day yesterday, liking what I hear so far; they may very well displace the TF-350's. I've been through NLA's, Avid 102's and AR-2a's before the TF-350's. The TF-350's were, IMO, the best of the lot other than bass output, but these Polks are, so far, matching the TF-350's for imaging, and besting them on bass.
Nice to see that Polk still has specs for these available, maybe even still makes replacement drivers?
