Just picked up a second set of Polk bookcase speakers mainly as a supplement on the high end for my aging SD1 s. I liked the brightness of the RTiA1s on acoustical tracks and it left me thinking that my SD1s seemed a little lackluster on that front so rather than look into replacing either the tweeters or the crossover I picked up a set of RTi4s (the predecessors to the RTiA1s) that I'm running in conjunction with the SD1s.

Relatively happy with the results so far. I just got them in today so they need a good 100+ hours on them to break in, and I'm playing with the volume level ratio (they're set up as surround so I can hard adjust the volume up or down in relation to the main speakers) in an attempt to get just the right mix.

Managed to sell my Tekton M-Lores last night and was able to pick up a pair of Monitor Audio RX6's. Thankfully I got a good price on my old ones and the MA's were a demo pair so got them for $900 all in :) Only cost me $50 to upgrade haha. Gotta love when that happens.

Not my pair but this is what they look like...

Nice upgrade haha.

Continuing on audio line, I picked up a set of Audio-Technica M50X on impulse after seeing it heavily discounted over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Heh... all you real audiophiles with your expensive tastes.... ;) (That was me coming back from Germany, but I couldn't afford to keep the equipment up.... ).

The experiment with bookshelf speakers to add a certain amount of high end to my SD1s seems to be working but it's only an improvement for certain tracks / artists as it stands. I've got some speaker plugs inbound and when I install those I'm going to swap the new speakers out with the one's I've already got broken in to see if that mellows out the high end a bit (I suspect it will).

Just got an ASUS memo pad 7" to give to my son for Christmas. I gave my daughter one last year and have been VERY happy with it for the price. Hopefully the new intel powered one treats us just as well. On sale for $129.99.
