One of the tweeters was bad, so I ordered a pair from an auction site, and now they're up and running.

    That's about all my Monitor gear. Now, the SDAs I got...

The older RX-V1 definitely had a better overall sound than the RX-3800 even though it's older. However, I just got a Parasound 2250 amp this past weekend that I need to hook up to the SDAs. I haven't had a chance and probably won't for a month or so because I'm in the process of finishing my basement. All the speakers are in storage right now during this process, with the exception of what's with surround system in the family room (Energy Take 5 classic + older Yamaha RX-V2095).

    I can't wait to put the Parasound on the SDAs. Looking forward to that one - hopefully soon.

    I have a set of original Monitor 10s with the Peerless tweets. They are a very good sounding speaker especially considering the $75 I spent for them. I can't imagine finding another pair of speakers that would sound better for the money. I would really like to try a set of Monitor 7s considering what Matthew Polk said about them.

    They are a wonderful speaker. Not too too big. And small enough to put out some big sound for sure

    DSkip-

    I'm in San Antone. I was mainly using this site for reviews, as I ran across speakers for sale locally. It's been a great source of information. I joined the site so I could take advantage of the discount when making purchases. I planned on upgrading the Silver Coil tweets on some of my speakers, but to be honest, I like the way they sound in my tv room. Mucho carpets and curtains. Besides, I have a two pair of M10s with the peerless, so I'm good. Where are you located?

    Boston from Maine-

    Thanks for the welcome! I also have some SDA 2bs. Love them!

    When it comes to BIG SOUND. Monitor 10As can rock your room with no problem. They "punch" harder than the 7s or 5s.

    But for more "refined" instrumental music my 5As, on that seemingly unimpressive looking JVC R-S33 receiver, never cease to impress. Peerless tweeters are winners! Love that sound.

    Randy-

    I have a pair of M10s in my bedroom. I'm powering them with a Sansui 8080db. Those M10s have the peerless. They sound real good with that receiver.

    In my den is my H/T setup. Those M10s have the Silver Coils (M5 center and M4 surrounds). A Yamaha 5440 h/t receiver is powering those. It's a smaller (low power) receiver, but it sounds really good with the Polk sub running with them. I like listening to music in there with the receiver in 2 channel mode. Those old Chicago cds sound really good!

    I currently don't have any of my other Polk speakers in use. I have a pair of Cerwin Vega d9 speakers in the living room. I'm powering them with an Onkyo M504. The living room system tends to get changed out quite a bit, though.

    Nice Sansui for sure. i just picked up a Sansui g2000 and i have that hooked to 5jr's and it is amazing match up. My 10's are hooked to Marantz 2252b and it does very well with the SL1000 tweets. Id love to upgrade the tweets later on down the road. Cheap price for upgrades too. And from what ive read here. It will be well worth it

    Oh...I've always want one of their G- series receivers. The 8080db is the series just before the G. I also have a Sansui 9900z. That's a pretty sweet sounding receiver too. I've used it to power the 2bs. They complimented each other well.

    How much did you pay for the G2000, if you don't mind me asking?

    I like that old Marantz, too. I have a 2230 that is loaned out. Also, a 2270 that is down for repairs. Wish I had the 2270 back in action.

    It's not a short drive but I wanted to extend the offer so you knew you'd be welcome. I live just East of Denton, TX, about 30 minutes North of Fort Worth.

    paid 15.00 for it just recently. I like the sound with it hooked to the 5jr's. its a low wattage unit but drives the 5jr's at quarter volume so loud you dont want any more. Its perfect for the room size they are set up in----i had the g5000 hooked to Klipsch KSF10.5's and it was a ROCKING UNIT. But the horn tweets didnt do it for me. I changed out the crossovers to KLF10 crossovers because thats all i could find in a 3 month hunt. Here's a pic of the Sansui. It looks alot like the g5000 i had

    I sit here and listen to my Monitors and am just blown away as they have always done since i started listening to them. It seems once you match them up with receiver & get them in the sweet spot they dont let you down

    the 4's do a fine job for there size. I picked some up cheap but they lost the covers. I was hoping theyd call and say they found them--how does that happen ?

    Attachment 87516My wife wasnt too thrilled about me putting a receiver in our dining room. But its been there for almost a week. She was complaining she couldnt get at windows. She has been busy in the evenings. So last night i told her instead of going out bar'n i was enjoying listening on that very set up. That may have saved me. I told her i would operate the windows. Until our youngest moves on i havent got MY MAN ROOM....sometimes ya gotta lay down the rules. Please dont show her this. Im the boss of my home'' when shes not home

    A & B Monitor 7 vs 10's today. Ive never done this A & B (usually i just switch them out. Big difference :)----- So i did it on a Marantz 2252b. I was quite surprised at the 7's. they did a fine job for being a smaller speaker with only 1 driver vs the 2 on the 10's....the 10's sounded slightly boomy so i adjusted it to the best i could with my ears & what is available on the Marantz. Not bad----but. The 7's held their own. More clean bass & overall to me a much better sound coming from the Marantz--so the 7's will stay paired with it....the 10's will find a new home hooked to a Yamaha cr 1040 with a tad bit more juice. Hopefully it will match up nicely with it

    This is very similar to what most people say about this comparison. Personally, I haven't had the opportunity to make the comparison so the 10As have never sounded boomy to me. The 7s have always been seen as the cleanest and best all around of the Monitor series.

    Since I've heard the 5As I can only assume that the only REAL difference with those is the greater cabinet volume and deeper bass that the 7s put out. Otherwise I would imagine that 5As should sound A LOT like the upper range of the 7s and, theoretically should image just as well?

    Sounds like you're having some fun there!

    BINGO you hit it right on the nail. I think the monitor 7-5-5jr+ 's are quite the speakers for their size. Especially with vintage receivers in 2252b size. . I had the 10's hooked to the cr1040 and that did match up nicely-better than the Marantz....So back the 10's go on the cr1040.....it is always fun playing around :)
