I just bought two Monitor 50 speakers. I use them with my RCA STA-3900 receiver bought new at Radio Shack for $100. My CD player is a SONY CDP-CE335 costing about the same. I have about $400 invested in my stereo system.
The audio is decent, but a bit bright. I immediately found it necessary to significantly reduce the bass and treble settings on my receiver from where they were set with my previous speakers. I have about 30 to 40 hours on the Monitor 50s. I’ve heard that it can take up to 100 hours or more to break in a speaker. How likely is it that my new speakers will sound warmer down the road? The midrange is where I hope they become more responsive.
