After picking up ZLTFUL's karma Polk SDA2's, I've decided to go back to an all vintage set up. As much as I enjoyed my RT55, CS400, RT1000 system, it's very clear that these speakers just aren't in the same league as the SDA2's. And to think, I haven't even heard them with the interconnect cable yet.
I have found a single Monitor 7C to use as a center speaker. It looks to be an early 7C as it uses the SL1000 tweeter(same as the SDA2's) and is fuse protected. As far as the surrounds go, I can't decide on a pair of RTA12B's with Peerless tweeters or SDA CRS+'s. The 12's are $250 and the SDA's are $150, without stands or interconnect. I'm really leaning towards the SDA's but having owned the RTA12C's at one point, I know that those are incredible speakers. But since they're being used as surrounds, I know a lot of their abilities will be irrelevant.
What is the better value here?
