When I was a kid, during my long and often eventful summers, I watched a lot of Nickelodeon (unless Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was on HBO). About once an hour they played an animated short called “The Cat Came Back,” which had a repetitive tune that was impossible to get out of your head once you’d heard it. It still pops into my head to this day, nearly 20 years later.
The Polk Monitor 50 floorstanding speaker from Newegg makes me want to sing “The deal came back the very next day ...”
Barely more than a week ago these popped back up, but the deal expired just as quickly. Once again, this time using coupon code SPEAKER12115, you can grab the Monitor 50s in cherry finish for $84.99/ea with free shipping.
The matching CS1 center is also on sale for $69.99/ea with no coupon codes, and the Monitor 30s (would make great matching surrounds) are their normal $99/pr with free shipping.
Looking for a feature-rich budget AVR to power these gems? The Onkyo RC160 + iPod dock deal from a few days back is still active and in stock.
