    Just so you guys don't think I am a polk newbie or sumtin. I shipped my lsi 9's off to vr3 today, I was jonesin for some speakers, and went searchin thru the closets today to see what i could put up. I found this pair of monitor 5's that i think i bought back in the 80's. I also remember sometime back in the 90's I wanted the walnut"veneer" to mach the oak decor I had in my house so i went to home depot and got me some "real" oak veneer... the kind you would do cabinets with and meticulously put it on these 5's. Anyhow I plugged them in today and they still sound good.Name:  mon5.jpg

    My memory of these was that they were pretty well rounded bookshelf speakers, but the midrange always stood out to me, and loved listening to the guitarists of the day... I just put on Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits Brothers in arms, and it brought a tear to my eye. Damn they sound as good as ever, and he was brilliant too.

    Your setup looks sick. Beware of the tube amps.... once you get your ears on them its the end of the world as you know it. You will be digging deeper and deeper into your pockets for tube money ....

    Hell yea, Mike. I love the Monitor 5's. I have a pair. I'm always amazed at the bass that comes out of these guys.

    ... and YES, electric guitar is one thing all these vintage Polks do sooooo well. They have a midrange grittiness/warmth that is really unique to them. Very special.

    As you know, I also own the LSi9's. I think the 9's are overall a "better" speaker than the 5's. More accuracy. Harder hitting bass. But the 5's have that special midrange that just can't be replicated.... that's why so many people go to SDA's as their LAST speaker!

    I can't get over how good these sound with a high power amp. my lsi 9's should be back in a week or so, and I am sure they will sound great, but for now I will enjoy the heck out of these. I am glad I kept the 5's.

    I find that to be the case even with the RT model up to the late 90's with the RTxxxi series. has a bit of thickness and warmth that makes music sound so enjoyable.

    I agree with the high power amp. I've gotten excellent results using high power amps on all my Polks. I'm currently running a pair of Vintage Polk RT's on seperates. Sounds fantastic.

    Enjoy your speakers man.

    Fire them up. I'm running 1000p's right now. I'm telling you, in my rig, these guys can compete with much higher end speakers for 2ch when given high quality SS or tube power. Their bass is probably the most musical I've heard IMO. It's not as tight as some others, but very smooth, effortless and just pure musical. Very warm and rich sounding too. Getting the volume on the powered woofers right can be tricky, but once you dial it in, it's amazing. The dynamic range in the bass is very powerful.

    If you decide to try them out, try using the "bi-wire" configuration. It's not true bi-wiring because the other wire is going into the amp section, but for some reason I get an improvement in overall sound quality. A few users also got an improvement by doing this back in the day. I think Dan (mantis) was one of them.

    Nice. Let us know how it goes. Too bad you're in New Jersey. If you were close to me, I'd buy them off you. I'm always on the look out for extra pairs of 1000p's. I missed a local sale last week on a mint pair of 1000i.

    I look forward to the day that my audio money can be spread into accessorizing the room and not just on upgrades. I need new seating so badly, but I can't turn down upgrades when my system still isn't where I'm satisfied.
