    What is a Pro Source dealer and how does anyone locate one? Polk also used to list Custom Installers on the website. Now, when I search on my zip, the 10 closest dealer locations to me are Best Buy and The Home Depot?


    The Home Depot didn't have the Signature series in any finish. :p

    Thanks for the info, at least I know we can go to @dskip for walnut

    Bummer DSkip is not in CA.

    I liked the walnut and the way it blends well with the rest of the speaker. Awesome speaker and WAF should be high on these.

    errr now I have to wait for walnut.
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

    I saw them in person today, Oh man sweet! If Polk could have sold them to me I would have busted out the Visa and taken the wrath from the wife. Trust me they look 10X better in person.

    For a matching stain it would be Old Masters dark walnut.

    Hey @D2Lo, Pro Source dealers... How do we learn who they are??

    We all used to be registered through distribution as Polk dealers. After the housing crash the library slid downhill.

    I know @dskip has registered can should be able to be verified for warranty. There are 1/2 dozen whole distributors through out the nation, many with national offices that dealers can invite clients to sit in demo rooms upon appointments, or the pro-dealer like Skip may have demos already at the office.

    Good question. Crutch field is the largest dealer in that mix. I'm trying to get a full list of dealers rummaging through their site. Can't seem to find one yet. http://www.prosourceinfo.com/members/member-profiles/

    They do look great in walnut.

    Now if they could just go back to the classic Polk logo...
    "Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music." ~ Ronald Reagan

    “I love songs about horses, railroads, land, Judgment Day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heartbreak and love. And Mother. And God.”
    ~ Johnny Cash

    All things considered, I think Polk hit a solid homerun with this new line. The S60s and S35 I setup this week were well-built, and produced quality sound that I'm sure will improve with break-in.

    Well. The 5010 isn't a beastly receiver, but the Signatures are easy to drive. My Ampino integrated at 25 watts pairs exceptionally well with the S60. For a 2 channel system, I'm not sure it gets any better with the S60. The pairing is silky smooth and detailed while still reaching low enough to make you feel like you aren't missing anything.

    Nice,

    Once I sell the 5700ES I will put that into HT funds which are now:

    #1 signature S55 or if budget permits S60

    #2 Oppo

    #3 VTF3-MK5

    I spent the last two years on woodworking tools now that's complete it full thrust to HT.
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.
