Thanks everyone, travis, i appreciate the kind words and help.
Eric, will look forward to getting our ears on those guys, thank you also.
As far as i remember, no atlanta polkies have made a peep about wanting to demo, although i have offered, and still offer to meet up to pass them off.
Was kinda surprised at the time at no real interest from the atlanta bunch
Again, thanks guys, we really do appreciate it.
If there are any of the LSi/M's floating around the Los Angeles area, my home is ready to host demos now. I am interested to hear them against the big Maggie's and the 1.2tl's. My tube amps are more than ready for them to boot.
I am more than willing to wait on the amp to give Scotty a chance to play with those 703s.
I have had the privilege of listening to a set locally and loved them. So I am not going to begrudge the man a little bit of fun before he has to free up some of his more liquid assets (still sorry you have to do it but still happy to get a deal on such a great amp).
This Atlanta area member lost interest after the longggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg wait.
If they are in the area, I would still like to demo.
scottyboy76...I sent you a PM a day or 2 ago...Polk needs your last name and phone number to make your FedEx Ground labels. PM me that info.
I left my info several places, thought one was with you when asking if we could move forward although jon was out of action.
Just sent it to ya again, let me know if there is a problem or you dont get it.
We are all set, will ship tomorrow. Enjoy!
Well it's about time!
No, just kidding, sorry about the radio silence. I won't let that happen again. I got swept up in too many projects.
Facebook is set on autopilot believe it or not.
Are we all good on shipping labels now? Just want to double check. My inbox is no longer full if you'd like to reach out here or there.
Got them today, deb was as tickled as i was.
She was so excited she had to go do laundry while i was unpacking and setting them up.
Started with stairway on cd, will be biwiring and spinning some gaucho later.
Are they scheduled for a north east trip? Where is the 707's going next? I'd love to get my ears on them.
Again, if the 707s come to the greater Boston area, I'd like to audition them.
Jon, i think our time is up, let me know what to do next.
I'll send you a PM, thanks for taking the time to review them. Were you able to write a review for our website?
I would like to listen to some in Los Angeles.
Id love to try them out. We have the 707s at work but not the 703s and I have been thinking about getting them.
David and Landers - please send me your shipping addresses, email addresses and phone numbers in a PM and I'll work on getting you the speakers for a demo in exchange for writing an honest review on polkaudio.com.
Jon, any chance they are heading in the direction of NY?
Yes, I would love to see the 703's land in New York!
Another vote for New York demo
I would like to hear the LSIM in Los Angeles.
I'm just curious since I was out of the loop on this for so long, but did the 707s ever make it out of CA? Or are they still bouncing around there?
What's going on with the demo? No action/update since the 27th of February and no review from the last demo. Another demo could have been close to done or completed and the demo program moved on to the next person in line since then.
Well here goes.
I have been sheepish about reviewing the 703s due to the fact i dont have experience describing what im hearing in audio gear, so i will just use regular words the best i can.
The listening was done using my adcom stack of gfa 555, gfp 750 and gcd400 with monoprice cables, and rega rp1 with upgrade pack and rega mini pre.
I guess when combined with my 55 year old ears subjected for a working lifetime to factory, print shop, and landscapers equipment, I guess this can certainly be described as a non audiophile review.
I have to admit, i always seem to expect something magical when a step up is made in our system, im always dissapointed at first, then upon further reflection, the improvements are more appreciated.
The 703s are no exception, we listened, then compared to our infinity recapped rs6s, apl prism 500s, dcm tf 400s, mirage om 10s and 12s.
All did something better or at least as good as the 703s, but the polks put together a set of attributes that none but the infinity kappa 5s came close to by themselves.
I guess mid bass would be their strongest area of reproduction, with the rs6s and apls coming closest to matching the polks.
So in summation, all my other mid level speaks had qualitys as good or better than the same quality in the polks, but none put them together in one speaker as well.
i would certainly hope that would be the case, as all the others together have not cost half the asking price of the polks.
I am sure better equipment, and younger ears, combined with the glossary of audio terminology many of you posess would produce a better listening experience, as well as review, but this was mine, and it took awhile to kinda get up the nerve to put it out there.
I would like to thank polk, dorokusai, jon s, and anyone else involved in allowing us to audition these beautiful speakers.
Quite a while ago, i left jon a pm letting him know our time was up, and they could be repacked at a minutes notice, we gave him our email address to email us labels, and when he has the next move plotted out for these speaks ready, we are ready to move them.
