    Alright, you MADE ME say this. Although I appreciate you dropping the space before your question marks and exclamation points, you should limit yourself to ONE of either. Plus, in most cases, a period would be best at the end of sentences that aren't questions.

    And before anybody thinks I am being a total doosh, I like verb and I know he has a great sense of humor. :p

    As far as the question, I only have pics of the boards that Trey (Version3) made for me. (see below)

    ^^^ Nice addition! I've never seen that ad, nor (?!?) those loudspeakers before.
    I may be wrong about the latter observation -- but not the former! This is a new one on me.

    Thanks very much for posting it to this thread.

    You've never seen LS or S series?

    apparently? ;)

    I kind of dropped out of hifi from the mid-1980s until the late 1990s (kids and career).

    Funny from what I've seen you never dropped back in.. :p

    I have that same SDA ad but in a pamphlet form. It has 6 pages PLUS the front and back covers. I posted it from elsewhere on Club Polk a few months ago. I'll check to see if I can find it. It was very interdasting. :p

    Interesting that the XO plate in the picture appear to be badly sun-faded and they chose them for the picture.

    sooooo...
    since last January, I learned that www.americanradiohistory.com has a searchable database of their scanned library of Audio, Stereo Review, and High Fidelity!

    whoo-hoo! :)

    Ergo, more vintage Polk Audio ads comin' your way!


    Here's a classic :) This was espied in the November 1979 issue of Stereo Review.

    EDIT: oops, @verb posted this ad back on Page 3 of this thread! Derp.
