hey polkheads, any of you own or had a chance to hear a pair of Polk Audio 5JR monitors, and if so, do you think they are worth $65? they say the cabinets have some scratches on them but claim that the drivers are intact and work perfectly. here are a couple of pictures:
they would be for my office at work so i'm not too worried about the cabinets as long as they don't look like they've been carved or something! sometimes these things look good after they've been cleaned up with a little furniture polish and a vacuum cleaner to the grills!
i like the tweeters and the fact that the woofers can get down low below 45hz (close to 30) because i don't have a sub at work but the speakers i have can only go down to 55hz so, if the drivers all work and the cabinets don't look too bad, i might just buy them.
i would like to hear (pun intended) from the polk community first of course! i need your feedback as i am thinking about acting this weekend before they walk.
thank you in advance to any and all who give their input. i lucked up last year and got a mint (and i mean showroom, outta the factory mint) set of SDA-2's w/interconnect cable and I love them so, while i know these (monitor 5JR's) aren't them, i would like to consider getting them for my office to get better low end.
