My fronts are currently a pair of Monitor 60s. I've had them for a long time now, and I love them. However, due to the room setup, my TV needs to be kitty cornered. I have a bigger TV now, and so the Monitor 60s are pretty squished next to my TV. It's tolerable, but looks pretty silly and forces my TV to be pulled away from the wall a bit. So I'm considering swapping them with a decent set of bookshelf speakers. That way I could put them under the TV, basically. I know none of this is good for surround sound, but I don't care too much about the acoustics. It's an open-concept layout to my kitchen and dining room so I am SOL on that anyway. I mostly just watch TV and listen to music so surround isn't a big deal. I've been out of the home audio game for a while now and not sure what I should consider. I'm looking at Polk because that's what the rest of my speakers are. Would the Monitor 40s be an okay substitution for the 60s? Or a definite downgrade? I do have a subwoofer. What about the RTi4? RTiA1? Other stuff? tl;dr Can I replace my Monitor 60s with bookshelves and not hate myself?
