    Not a big Polk fan, but then again I've never heard these monitors and this is a reallllly good price.

    Can you hook these up to a computer? if so, do I need any special attachment?

    I have these and the 40's and the CS1. Love them all. At this price I would order another set of the 35's for another room, garage or just for party room. Anyway you would need a receiver to power these from your computer. They are speakers. They don't power themselves.

    You don't necessarily need a whole receiver per se, just a small amp, an analog or digital cable, and of course speaker wire.

    I use a LEPAI amp (Amazon)between my computer's headphone output and a pair of good speakers. It's incredibly small and cheap, yet it works adequately and provides both volume and tone controls. It requires only a simple male-to-male 3.5mm cable.

    I don't think they'll go lower than that. $60 is a good deal for a pair of decent loudspeakers.

    Coupon code BTEWXVM49 will give you 10% off. My total will be 49.99 al long as I get my rebate. Smile
    Thanks #5, I'll be trying your setup but can you recommend a specific model amp that will utilize the specifications of these speakers. Specs say 100 watts per speaker so does that mean I should be looking for a 200 watt amp?

    #5's lepai amp will more than suffice. I have it connected to Paradigm Titan V6 ( Yes, I prefer the lepai over a typical receiver, it is compact and can be placed on a desk, or in my case, bolted under the desk such that the controls can be accessed easily from the front ). I use the volume controls on the keyboard. Can't beat that space saver set up. I have an APC Power saver APC P8GT that provides power to the lepai when it senses load on the PC's plug and turns it off otherwise. 99.9% of the population can't tell the difference in sound between the lepai and a high end receiver when used with bookshelves.
    However, if you need punchy bass out of heavy floorstanding speakers, then you'd need a bigger amp.

    The Leipai will drive these acceptably but if you want loud, particularly bass heavy music then it will start to run out of watts, though by the time it does so it would be way too loud for listening to while sitting in front of a computer with the speakers only a few feet away.

    Goob putting wattage specs on a speaker is a misnomer for the consumer masses. Speakers don't have watts. You can blow a low end speaker if you hook it up to a Sanders Magtech and push it all the way, but that's unlikely. With a pair like this you want to worry about what sound quality the amp can provide. I haven't heard this Lepai amp, but it may be worth a shot if you don't want to spend a lot of money.

    If you want to spend more then go to one of these audio forums and see what rabbit hole people get themselves into to find audio nirvana.

    If your going to go via this little amp route then go with a Logitech Z506 system. You get the sub and 5 speakers. A refurbished unit will cost you $52.99 shipped via NewEgg.
