Serously, I think the review is absolute crap!
Here's something taken from the review... "The listening room was Reference System 1, which is a larger room (over 5000 cubic feet) and features a complete room acoustics treatment package from Auralex Acoustics. All of the speakers were, as a result, driven very hard, enabling us to see how they would fare in extreme situations."
wtf? A 5000 cubic room to listen to Polk Monitor 30 and having the guts saying the speakers were bright? I haven't heard a single Polk speaker that I would describe as "bright". It was bright because they were pushing the speakers to their limit and probably beyond. If these guys are "professionals", why wouldn't they analize the speakers in a smaller room. Obviously the Monitor 30 was not designed for such a big room. We don't buy speaker to hear how they sound in "extreme situations" like they mentioned.
That's like reviewing the LSi9 being powered by a 3w/ch SET amp and complaining about the lack of bass, control, etc.
But it was nice to see that Polk did much better than the other speakers. I just think the review was pure BS and none of those speakers should have been reviewed in such a big room.
