I finally dought a pair of Polk SDA-CRS+. I had almost forgotten about these speakers until I found this forum. I first heard the SDA at Audio Genesis in Glens Falls NY when I was 13. At 30 I finally have pair!!!! They sound better than I remember! I am using a Denon DRA-325 that I bought when I was 13 and it has served me very well. I hope to upgrade this to a Denon 3805 in a few months. I wanted to ask you fine people what you think about using the SDA series as HT speakers. I want to be able to listen to music as well without hampering the SDA effect. Has anyone tried making a switch to disable and enable the SDA effect? Is it recomended to run with the SDA effect with a HT setup or not, hence my first question. I found the Polk recomended center, rear and sub, but most are obsolete, are there updated recomendations or should I be keeping my eyes open for the obsolete stuff?
By the way DO NOT use UPS to ship speakers. I bought these off eBay at a premium because I could not wait any longer, I thought 17 years was enough. However UPS dropped one box, damaging a corner and worse yet breaking in half the large winding that the crossover attached to in the cabinet. I carefully rewound the coil and glued the spoll back together. Before, during , and after the prcess I took resistance measurments with a meter to make sure I was at the same resitance as when I started. Ithink it was 2.2 or 2.3 ohms. They sound FANTASTIC! Does anyone know where I can get the grill clips?
thanks everyone for making me think of the SDA again!
