Hello Polk fanatics! Pretty sure I was logged onto this site some years back as wildwhl, but couldn't recall so new login now. I've had MANY Polk products in my audiophile life and always wanted a set of the SRS since I first experienced them around 1986 in a proper demo. My dream speakers since I was a kid I suppose. Up popped today on local CL a set - they're rough - and I have my work cutout for me. Truth is they're not matched - one is a 1.2 (the right) and the other a 1.2TL (the left). Price was very right so I couldn't pass them up!
However, I do have plans to end up with a matched set with upgrades to my liking. Over the last couple of weeks I've turned off the motorcycle side of my brain and recharged the music side - SDA2's kicked it off and a pair of Monitor 5JR's (Always loved those little buggers!)
A few years back I went on a binge and collected a whole boatload of Vintage Polks. At one point I had SDA2, Monitor 5jr, 7, 10, 12, RTA12 and a whole bunch of other crap in my shop. Not the best listening environment, but nobody complained.
No idea why I thought I should get rid of all of it. I ended up with LSi15's as my mains in the house with matching center channel. They were all paired with a Velodyne DD10 sub, and four in-ceiling Noble Fidelity L-65s in the ceiling handling rear/side surround duties. A Yamaha RX3800 drives it all. For some other brain fart reasoning of mine I sold the LSi15's (had an offer I couldn't refuse) and now a pair of Monitor Audio Silver 5i sit in that spot.
In the past I've owned a whole slew of other equipment - Polk, Klipsch, Sunfire, Dynaudio Gemini (DIY speakers - miss those suckers a ton) and more.
I guess if its in your blood, it is in your blood!
Will post progress of the resurrection/rebuild as it goes along. Need several drivers and will probably rework the xo's to my liking. Adcom GFA 555 sitting here for power - front end to be assembled over time. Couple different preamps hanging around. Just going to gel and let it all evolve - and ef the WAF!
