    Who knew we had to take a photo of the box, Troy? LOL

    Glad for those expecting a pair.

    FWIW, on the product page, it does show 2 speakers but does not say "pair" like the L series and the
    S series.

    In the cart it shows 2 speakers but does not say "pair".

    D'oh, appears to be confusion on my part.

    Oh well, no blood no foul.

    Any tricks on finding this 10% stackable coupon? I turned off pop up blockers, tried different browsers, still nothing that I can find...

    If you select “Specifications” you’ll find

    UOM (Sold as). Pair

    I’m assuming UOM is unit of Measure but that is very hard to find and confusing.

    I don’t know why the confusion…. Clearly says right on the main page that the 200s and 100s are sold as a “pair”.

    Although, I was disappointed to see the price is actually higher once you click on the item. Every Reserve speaker has a lower price listed on the series main page than when you click on the actual item. Main (series) page has the R200 pair at $699. When you click on the item, price for all three finishes is $749…

    Weird, that image I posted is from the “Reserve Series” link in Carl’s first post. When you navigate to the reserve series from the PolkAudio.com home page, the prices are different. Wonder if the original link was to an archived or older page with lower prices. Regardless when you click on the speakers, prices go up to current prices on the site.

    I was smitten with the R200 at PolkFest. I definitely don't need another pair of speakers in my house, but at this sort of discount I can't really pass them up.

    That's the spirit!

    I may "need" a new pair of speakers for my kitchen. Hmmmm.

    You have not reached max capacity until you have a half bath rig

    My wife would disagree...I'm pretty close to max, but I may order a pair before the weekend is up. The living room has been getting by with a very old pair of Mirage M-290 for almost a decade. This might be a decent replacement.

    They are coming soon.

    Noticed that as well. Also, looks like the R700's don't come in white? ;)

    The R700s were never manufactured in white.

    That's an impressively deep looking "bookshelf" speaker cabinet.

    So they do have grills! None of the photos at Polk show the grill. Crutchfield has grill photos for the brown and white, but not the black. I was starting to wonder...

    So, does "Half bath" = "monaural hifi [rig]"?

    Well, that's not very hard core.

    The R700 what i tried to get with the code and it says out of stock. Now debating if I should do the 600 or hold off completely.

    You can “stack” discount codes.

    On visiting the site I was offered 10% off with a code for signing up for offers.

    On checkout I used both codes and it gave me both.

    200’s on the way.

    Math… numbers… ick

    Stacked - 10% off total and then this discount from that total.

    Still a good deal but figuring that invoice out was a big deal to this math challenged village idjit!!

    It is not giving me a 10%off option. Even tried a different computer. You got lucky!!

    Yep - I’ve tried many times to recreate that to no avail.

    Luck it is. >:)

    Sounds best with monster cables and running my 8 track at max volume.
