    Please count me in, pcs later since I am at work.
    Last year got a pair of 11ts off of CL, free. Replaced tweeters, xover, glued magnet... and love the sound in my 2 channel setup. I'm hooked, now always check CL for more since I'm looking to pass on similar sound experience to my sons. Definitely could use these to spread the word.

    Not sure if you would be willing to send those lovely 7's all the way to Sunny Western Australia but they would be much loved. Been a Polk Audio owner since i bought my first pair of Monitor 10's from Vince Ross Audio World in the late 80's.cggz942k03m2.jpg

    Great offer on a very nice set of vintage speaks. Currently I have 4 Polk Audio rigs set up in the house. I guess you could say I dig the Polk sound.

    bl2d2dj960us.jpg
    q2sk74fup4zh.jpg

    Bedroom 7B's. Pulled out from the wall a bit as I'm doing work on the room. It's what I listen to when the fam doesn't want to listen to Caravanserai or what not.

    w0k5uak8c30g.jpg

    Kids room #1, RT35i's usually gets used with iPod & the occasional CD.

    tcjr88fsx5vu.jpg

    Kids room #2, 5jr+ usually played with CDs occasionally iPod. Someone needs to clean their room.

    wqgwlmycm6cx.jpg

    SDA 2B's. Gets played as often as I can play them. Usually CDs or Home Theater (with a CS400, FXiA4's & M5's) I doubt I will ever part with these.

    On a side note, maybe Polk could include a set of RD-0194's tweeters to improve the sound & to make them sexier with an all black front?
    SDA 2B(1989 Oak Caps w 194s) ~ Old school Monitor 7B(1982 w Peerless) ~ Monitor 7 (w 198s) ~ Monitor 5 (w 198s) ~ Monitor 5(w 194s) ~ Monitor 5Jr+(w 194s) ~ RT35i (cherry finish) ~ CS400 ~ CS245i ~ F/Xi A4 ~ RT25 ~ CS245

    Awesome Karma Polk Team. Many Polks featured in my 7.2 channel system see sig. I don't deserve them but would love to have them. I've been looking to start-up a vintage second smaller system for sometime so this would really kick start my journey with the Monitor 7's. Good luck everyone.

    This is super cool! I currently have a Polk RTi dual system for music/HT and would love to start building a dedicated music system. Everyone here has nothing but great things to say about vintage Polk speakers and I've never had an opportunity to hear a pair. Does that make me deserving? Maybe not, but what does... a couple years ago I was willing to karma the very last can of black paint, but had no takers.

    http://forum.polkaudio.com/discussion/162992/last-can-of-black-paint#latest

    You may or may not know about the scarcity of black paint, but the fact that I was willing to give it away, in my opinion, makes me deserving of entering this karma. Now in the spirit of full discloser, I do admit that there was some confusion as to whether it was true black paint, or a slight variant of black, perhaps an extremely dark shade of grey. But it was the thought that counts! I did win a Batman kite once in my box of cereal when I was a little kid, but I needed to pay the shipping cost to have it sent to me and my mom wouldn't give me the money. Let these speakers be my Batman kite! I'm feeling lucky!

    In Please, these would likely end up on my desk at work.... because there IS NO SUCH THING as overkill.

    I'm hoping to get an office at work shortly, in which case I'd then put these on 22" stands in my office for my vintage setup being driven by a vintage Sherwood S-7125b

    Count me in please. I've missed my monitor 7's since the day i sold them. I started with a pair of 5's, then came the 7's that i totally redid, then SDA 2B, to SDA 1C and now my end game 1.2tl's.

    I've been on the lookout for a pair of monitor 7's to set up a simple 2 channel family room rig so these would be pefect.

    Here's the first pic after hooking up the 1.2tl's.
