I want to introduce myself to all of you. I am a new Club Polk member who just purchased a pair of SDA2b's with interconnect cable. After reading about the SDA's in the forums I decided I could not go wrong spending less than $200. on a pair. I currently have a pair of Monitor 10's with peerless tweeters which I bought around 1980 that were unused for 10 years but in great condition. Here is where I need some help. I have been away from the market for along time, and unsure of what I need/should have to enjoy these speakers and future updates. I am sure I am on the right path and don't want to screw up now. My current receiver is a Denon DRA375RD which is rated at 60 wpc @ 8ohms, .05thd and I was told by Denon that it is a common ground receiver. I also have a Polk PSW 140 Subwoofer. The CD player is a Denon DCM-360.
OK here we go!
I know I need to upgrade the receiver and need suggestions. I'd like to spend around $400. to $500 on a receiver.
Can I use this receiver for now?
What should I do with the Monitor 10's?
Is the subwoofer OK?
If using the 10's are an option as rear speakers what center channel will be a good fit?
On a personal note; I work at a golf course here in New Jersey that is owned by Donald Trump which is closed till March so I have some time on my hands. So this is one of the things I am doing in the off season. I have a wife and two children and they currently think I listen to music too loud especially when I get a budweiser buzz on. God only knows what the future holds. Thanks in advance for your advice.
