I posted this in the "Entry Level" section as well. Currently I have a decent turntable with Grado cartidge. Using a marantz 2230 as a pre-amp feeding into a Carver 100 wpc power amp. Been using Realistic Optimus speakers for years and have thought they sound pretty decent. I am definately on a budget. Thinking of purchasing Polk Monitor 70's. Polk is offering some great deals as close out items. Any thoughts on these speakers???
