Karma giveaway from Polk Audio

Good afternoon everyone!

We’re having a GIVEAWAY for these classic Monitor 7 speakers! They have been inspected for every technical and cosmetic detail by our Polk Quality Assurance team. They have stood through the test of time and you will still be blown away when you hear them.

All you have to do is comment on this thread a photo of your current set up (with or without Polk speakers) and tell us why you deserve a pair of Polk Monitor 7s. We’ll be using a random generator to choose the winner.

    Thank you Ken! Now why would a pair of M7s be deserved in this rig? Because after I work on a pair of Monitor 5jr+ to be the centre channel, that pair of 7s would slot in perfectly as rears for an all vintage Polk setup consisting of Marantz and Parasound upstream.

    Addendum, the second photo is a bit older with my now long gone Onkyo AVR, been replaced with a Marantz SR5010. Also the tweeters in the SDA2s have been replaced with RD0-194 tweeters sourced direct.

    IN, in, in. Very sorry I sold my M7's. I love my M5jr+ series 2, but the M7's were just a bit better. They don't fit my room as well, but the sound was awesome. Those look like a beautiful set. If I win them, I will bequeath my M5's to one of my daughters, or a friend.

    The monitor 7 speakers were the first Polks I ever heard. They were powered by a 40 watt Onkyo receiver. I was blown away with the sound they could produce. They are the reason I own SDAs today.

    That looks like my old HK AVR. I got my monies worth out of it before it died and thought it did very well with two channel music.

    Nice setup!

    Thanks. Low budget but it sounds very good to my uneducated ears. Got the HK from a Polkie for a good price, paid $75 for the M5jr+series 2 with the stands. The CS245i was about $50 and the cheap Sony sub was free.

    The HT 7.2 all Polk A9s, A5s, A3s, CSI A6. The 2.3tls, and in the spare pile CRS+s Some 2B's FXIA6's.

    I could use some Monitor 7's as I don't have a pair of Monitors and would like to add them to my Polk Collection. Please consider me in. I would keep them and cherish them forever.

    This is definitely "Good Karma" and a very nice gesture from Polk. I normally would be all-in for these nice speakers (you can never have too many Polks) even though I don't really have a need for them right now.

    I would rather see someone who will really put them to good use win them though.

    I bet they sound pretty-good.

    Nice, I want in.

    Will have to get a photo later.

    Why, I have been a Polk fan since I was a kid. Have bought only Polk speakers since around 1990.. and I have bought a bunch. From 1.2tl's (modded) to the latest LSIM703, 706, 705, and 702's. I could list them all if it helps, rotate them through from time to time and enjoy all of them.

    No intentions of going to another brand.

    Not in for me, but in for my Dad... He's the one that started me down this awesome rabbit hole 30 years ago. So in that same theme, his setup: purchased new in '87 a pair of Monitor 5b mated to a JVC RX-950V digital receiver, SEA-33 10 band EQ, cassette player and direct drive turntable. I don't have access to pics of his stuff unfortunately.
