    For $200 it is a good deal. If you get it and decide its not for you, you should be able to resell it and get all your money out of it with no problem.

    Edit - after looking up costs on E-bay, I would still consider it a good deal, but about market value. (well below if you do not have to pay for shipping on all the items.) for $200, you would have the makings of a nice little 2 channel system.

    I've been wanting to do a crossover/tweeter upgrade on all my monitors, especially the 10s......wouldn't even know where to begin to do it myself and I know it's alot of $$ to pay someone.

    If you have decent soldering skills,or practice/learn them,,it's not really that difficult, I've learned alot about polks,,I think they call it "osmosis":D

    One thing to keep in mind, the GTP-400 was designed to smooth out the slight harshness that the 535 can give off. You may want to listen to them together, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    Thanks, I've been thinking all night about taking my Monitor 5's out of my HT setup and doing a 2 channel rig with the Adcom GTP-400, Adcom GFA-535II, and another Ipod hookup of some sort.

    Nice deal. Did you grab a bottle from the shelf when the seller wasn't looking? Quit overthinking and give it a try. The 5's can take over 100 clean watts.
