This one may seem like deja vu, but every now and then we’re lucky enough for a great deal to come around twice.
NewEgg has a today-only bargain for Monday, October 12, on the Polk Monitor 50 floorstanding loudspeakers in cherry finish for $89/each with free shipping using coupon code EMCMLLT46.
These are a great sounding budget start to a home theater or media room, and the matching Polk CS1 center channel is available for $69 with no codes, also including free shipping.
The Polk Monitor line is known to have quality imaging and detail, though fatigue can be an issue in extended listening in untreated or “lively” rooms.
Specs include: two 5.25-inch mid/woofer bi-laminate composite cone drivers, one 1-inch silk/polymer composite dome tweeter, 42Hz-25kHz frequency response, 35 x 7 x 9.63-inch dimensions, 26 pounds.
