I picked up 2 of them. I got the email and instantly got them. Now my stereo consists of 4 polk monitor 60 towers, 2 r300 towers , 2 polk bookshelfs, polk center channel, and 4 10" subwwofers . When will it stop!!!! Total of 22 speakers. When will they make a 10 channel receiver? Lol

What happened to the Shoprunner on NEWEGG? I cannot find it when I checkout when I ordered a pair of the R300s. Oh well, 3 days Free Shipping is available and no taxes for TX folks.

A good value for anyone that wants to get started on a budget home theater setup... TU & reps to op for posting (now if that recent cs1 polk center for $49.99 was black instead of cherry [maybe next time], could add that and a couple of bookshelves for surrounds or 2 more of these plus a budget sub and you'd be good to go for a decent entry level 5.1 setup .. of course, gotta get a SD deal on a 5.1 receiver too but they come along).

A good price, although they do hit $50 periodically so don't beat yourself up if you miss it. I've finally decided to just buy them this time, because they seem to be the best deal in this price range.

The real value of these is the fact that they're floor standing, and you don't need a speaker stand. I have Monitor 40s on my TV stand for fronts now, and technically if I wanted to match those I'd need Monitor 30s for rears. Problem is, even though M30s are the same price as these guys, the required speaker stands would add a lot to the price.

Back in the days, Fry's was selling this baby every month or so with this price but the shipping and tax killed the deal for some including myself. They were also selling the R50 for about $10 more each but I don't see these deals often anymore. For $50 each ($100 for a pair) shipped without tax for the majority, this deal should be FP material IMO.

Not all items are eligible for Shoprunner.

As someone else mentioned, Shoprunner doesn't work for everything. In fact, it has worked for a very small percentage of my Newegg orders -- basically, only things that are very light. Anything over like 3 or 4 pounds seems to be ineligible. And I understand that they're a business in business to make money......but I sure won't pay $79 a year to renew it when my free membership is up. I like having it for free.....and maybe I'd pay $30 a year for it........but the truth is that most stuff it works with already come with free shipping. The only benefit is 2-day -- but most of the sites they work with have my order here in 3-4 days with standard shipping, so they aren't adding nearly enough value to pay $79 a year for me. I feel kinda bad for them -- I'd like Prime to have some competition -- but I don't think they're going to make it in the long run.

I'm off my soapbox now.

Rules to live by.......never marry a woman you have never slept with. Never buy a pair of speakers you have not listened to first.

According to the reviews on Newegg, the bass warrants a sub-woofer but can anyone speak to how they perform when you really crank up the volume on these puppies? I love to listen to music loud especially for parties.
