For that kind of $$, I would expect it to take out the trash each day and walk the dogs every week.

Polk Audio - Opinions?

Even going back to 2000, Polk Audio was one very, very shallow step above Bose. What they are or are not doing today - I have no clue.

Bluetooth vs sandard jack

A hardwire connection to a decent audio amp will always be infinitely better than any bluetooth connection. After which there are far too many variables to render an accurate opinion.

Recommend me a valve amp to go with Quad ESL 63s

Here goes the math again - into the Quads:

1 watt = 86 dB
10 watts = 96 dB
100 watts = 106 dB

35 watts = 98 dB
75 Watts = 103 dB

The monoblocks linked were 125 WPC.
