    The monitor 5 was a floorstand model. The v3's are out but some dealers may still have v2's in stock. The 5v2 is a very good speaker for a main as long as you have a sub. I had a pair of 5v2's up front in my HT a couple of years ago and I was pleased with them.

    I have v2s as mains, and I am very happy with them. They are no longer made, but they should still be available. My dealer no longer has any more, but I was in a shop in southern Ca this week and they still had some. If you find a local shop that has them, you should be able to get a pretty good discount on them.
