One of the best bookshelf speakers ive ever heard old or new . Excellent musicality & sound stage . For the money these cant be beat . If you find a pair get them fast before someone else does .

re: Monitor 5B

The Mid-Bass driver was originally an MW6502 which (surprisingly, at least to me) is no longer available from Polk. (I've always been a fan of their speakers, and I'm not a fan of many brands, specifically for their lack of vintage support.) I have used (my last spare set) MW6517's which may be available. Some people call and they say they have them and other people call and if you get the wrong CS rep, they'll say they don't, so it's no longer the Polk I remember from my RT-11t's days. None the less it's probably the best "not large" speaker I've owned. Terrific dynamics and extension for their footprint. Good luck!
