So those $5.00 RCA 40-5016's I bought today are working out to be mighty good speakers. They way satisfy my expectations and are giving me that retro sound I've been craving. I've got them right up in my face. The sound stage is really, really sweet. The build quality feels and looks like my Polk Monitor 60 SII's...this was $5.00 so well spent! Listening to that new Fates Warning - Awaken The Guardian: Live set...can't get enough of it.
