Summary: I have these as part of my surround set up with a CS2 center, Monitor 40s for side surround, Monitor 30s for rear surround and PSW10sub. They all sound awesome, and I'm using a Pioneer VSX-1121-K 7.1 receiver.
Summary: Polk Speakers are the best available at this price and Polk is an excellent company to do business with. But I found out the hard way that when you buy from an unauthorized Polk vendor on Amazon. Neither Polk nor Amazon nor the vendor will honor the 5yr Warranty on a NEW product. You will not get repair, replacement or refund from anyone!
Summary: I purchased a pair these speakers on June 9th 2011 to go into my dedicated home theater paired up with a Polk CS10 center and 4 Polk OWM3 for surrounds on a Denon 3311CI and they are still going strong and sound amazing on movies. Great highs and mids and I couldnt be more happier with them.
Summary: I love these speakers. I have owned every speaker in the monitor series, and would highly recommend the 60s to anyone. They lack the bass that the 70s had. When I say lack I mean you wont get them in the room and have bass that vibrates your chest like you would with a subwoofer. But objectivly as floorstanding speakers, the bass is adaquate for watching movies.
Summary: I have these Polk Audio Monitor Series II Floor Speakers and they are excellent for my home Theater. Once you break these in you will be impressed by the sound they put out. I had Bose speakers but switched over to Polk Audio and I think the sound is much fuller and richer at all levels. Save yourself some money and go with Polk Audio. Also: These speakers can be Bi-Wired as well.
Summary: You can get newer, more efficient, better looking, or cheaper speakers; but I don't think you'll find all 4 of those things wrapped into one package better than the Monitor 70. I replaced some Klipsch spreakers with these as I thought the highs were a little too harsh for me with the Klipsch horns and have no regrets. The price is right on these speakers and you can't go wrong, especially if you are on a budget.
Summary: I have had these speakers (Polk Audio Monitor 60's) since June 2012. I ordered what was pictured (silver fronts) but received the ones with black fronts. I was happy the black fronts arrived as they go well with my system when I want to take the covers off. I purchased solely off the reviews here on Amazon and the AVS forum in accordance with my budget of course. I also purchased the Polk CS10 center channel speaker and a BIC 10" subwoofer.
Summary: I'd always thought large-diameter speakers were necessary for good, clean bass; but these towers prove it's not so. Midrange and highs are clean. Violins sound silky, not harsh. Imaging (from a stereo pair) is excellent.
