    Hehehe, you haven't been around for a couple days I take it. I will give you a quick rundown of the events of this weekend.

    1. That was supposed to be a small exclusive offer to a select few folks so there was no big announcement, just an email that went out to those select few
    2. The email was posted on AVS, got re-posted here, and a bunch of other sites
    3. Polk got 2k orders from what I have heard over the weekend
    4. This spawned some speculation threads about the potential demise of Polks, it being bought out, etc
    5. In response to #3 & #4
    5A. They pulled the sale one day early and removed all threads on the sale here
    5B. They have killed 4 threads at least inquiring about why the sale ended early on this site

    I thought it sounded good. I will get in touch with him. I don't have the amp to drive them, so will probably just flip them, after trying them out.

    Thanks, guys.

    Monitor 10A's $100 Pretty good deal I think. I would love to have them but the timing isn't for me though. I just started back to school and I don't need the distraction. I've looked at this ad for a week now and decided I couldn't focus on my studies with these in the house. Passing it on to you guys, so I can move on.

    $100 for Monitor 10As with the Peerless tweeter is a great deal. Someone should grab them. They are wonderful speakers!

    That kind of stuff bugs me. Just let somebody else have them if all you're going to do is flip them.

    there not worth more than 1-125.00 so flipping them and making little is more work than worth effort. Understand what your saying though

    Sorry you feel that way and I guess I agree. But I did say "after trying them out" so it wouldn't be just flipping them. I don't know if my little Pioneer is enough to drive them. The Monitor 7's are easy to drive, but I figured those speakers would require more umph. My house doesn't have much storage space at all, no garage, and I don't have room to keep multiple sets of speakers, mostly just those I am using.

    So I wouldn't just be flipping them, if I bought them, which I didn't. I like trying out different speakers but can't afford those I would find in a retail store. So if i buy speakers that I know I can resell for at least as much as I paid for them, it lets me demo them for free basically.

    I recently lost a fairly good paying job and had to take one that pays less than I need. Spending money on a hobby isn't a good idea right now, so if I can find some enjoyment from it without using funds much needed elsewhere, that's what I do.

    I often come on here to ask what the value is because I know most people here are more knowledgeable about what's good and what's bad and what I might be able to "flip" if I don't like the sound.

    i had some rti8's & i had all i could do to get 120.00 for them minty. I had them hooked to one of my Marantz 2252b's and it pushed them very nicely but they did need a tad bit more power & wasnt enough bass with vintage 2 channel w/no subwoofer. Probably make a nice HT front speaker w/subwoofer for sure

    Thanks, Randy. My Pio isn't very beefy so it would probably struggle, which is what I expected. I guess I need to go back to my original plan and get the upgraded caps on the 7's from Trey.

    Every RTi speaker I ever heard sounded the way you describe. I just think that is the signature sound.

    Are you using that pioneer vsx821k on Monitor 7's. that should sound very nice--i am using a Marantz 2252b on 7's and it is very nice @ meduim volume on my 6300tt. Very happy with the 7's. would love to upgrade but wallet says NO :(

    agreed--wonder how they would sound with a 200watt amp ? Probably bring them to life ?

    I apologize for that post. I admit, I was in a pissy mood. I guess we've all done it at some point or another. Also being on a budget, I typically look for inexpensive gear but only to enjoy it for myself. If I ever sell something, I only want to get back what I paid for it. It isn't often that I sell something for more than I paid but I have done it.

    I would think that your receiver would have an easier time driving those RTi8's than it does those Monitor 7's. The 7C's are 4-ohm speakers whereas the RTi8's are 8-ohms IIRC. I do miss my 7C's. Awesome speakers!

    Sorry again and happy hunting.

The Monitor 7's are easy to drive, but I figured those speakers would require more umph. My house doesn't have much storage space at all, no garage, and I don't have room to keep multiple sets of speakers, mostly just those I am using.

    So I wouldn't just be flipping them, if I bought them, which I didn't. I like trying out different speakers but can't afford those I would find in a retail store. So if i buy speakers that I know I can resell for at least as much as I paid for them, it lets me demo them for free basically.

    I recently lost a fairly good paying job and had to take one that pays less than I need. Spending money on a hobby isn't a good idea right now, so if I can find some enjoyment from it without using funds much needed elsewhere, that's what I do.

    I often come on here to ask what the value is because I know most people here are more knowledgeable about what's good and what's bad and what I might be able to "flip" if I don't like the sound.

    There is nothing wrong with flipping, especially if you can still offer it to people for under market value and still make a buck or two. I've done it numerous times and will continue to do it. Recently I got a package for $300 and sold off most of it to the tune of $700. I've still got a few items from that sitting in my closet. Certain things I buy for resale, certain things I buy for myself, and others I buy for friends to pass along a great deal at no cost. Each scenario is different.

    I will say this: if I didn't buy certain items for resale, there is no way in hell I'd be where I'm at in this hobby, either experience wise or gear wise.

    ^^^^Absolutely. I mostly buy with the intent of keeping for myself, but if I'm browsing ads and see a sure-fire couple hundred bucks sitting right there in front of me, I'll go pick something up. What the heck.

    I'll usually spend some time with whatever I get... enables me to hear new stuff and different combinations.

    Again guys, I apologize for that post. I didn't mean to derail the thread. If flipping is your thing, then cool beans. I guess I have a personal bias against it because of one transaction in particular a few years prior. I was selling a receiver and this guy showed up to buy it. He had a sob story about why he wanted the receiver and that he was on a strict budget. I felt bad for the guy and lowered the price of the AVR for him and even threw in a pair of Polk bookshelf speakers for not much more. I thought I had done the guy a favor.

    Less than a week later, all of the gear was on Craigslist with a MUCH higher price on it than what he paid. I was pissed off to no end. He even listed links to other gear he was selling and it became clear that he was a flipper, nothing more. I wanted to strangle him.
