I have a pair of Polk Monitor 10s I purchased in 1985. I have lived with them quite happily for years (obviously), but over the last year I have been upgrading my audio system, and have settled on the following:
Amp: Rotel RB-990BX
Preamp: Rotel RC-995
CD: Denon DCD-1650AR
Interconnects: Monster M1000
Speaker Cables: Analysis Plus Oval 9
So my questions are these
1. have I reached a point where the Monitor 10s are the weakest link? I am not sure about this, as the 10s have certainly been able to resolve the subtle differences in, say, speaker cables, and have shown to have a full range of the new bass capabilities the electronics and cables have unleashed.
2. How do the 10s compare with modern Polks or other speakers? They were $600 speakers in 1985.
If anybody has input on this question, I would appreciate it. I am very happy with the improved sound I have achieved, I just don't want to be "held back" by 17 year old speakers, if substantial further improvement is available for a reasonable price.
