I see other brands, apparently better speakers than LSIMs, but I cannot warm up to their looks.
    The 705's are great... as are the 707's and 703's.

    I agree that towers look better for fronts. Especially the LSiM's. They are damn sexy. The 707's are a very DEEP speaker, so make sure you have room. The 705's are a much more manageable size. Like I said, in terms of pure performance, I like the 707's, followed by 705's, followed by 703's.... but all you're really talking about is differences in bass.

    The best setup would be towers PLUS dual subs... but if you don't want to spend the money for towers AND dual subs, then the 703's plus the dual subs will blow the towers on their own away! ESPECIALLY in a home theater setup!

    You can get some nice looking stands. They grew on me big time.

    Very nice review..
    About the quality of finish that is horrible for speakers costing $4k, completely unacceptable I hope they were returned for that reason.?
    Are those made in China or the USA?
    I know some companies make their cheaper speakers in China and the higher priced models in their home country.

    A sure way to catch upgraditis. I loved my old Denon until a buddy brought over the latest top of the line yammy. The speakers just opened up in a way I hadn't experienced with my Denon. Two grand later I'm enjoying my speakers all over again with a B&K.

    First let me say,...great responses and awesome review by Jim.

    I am no expert vs all you guys on this thread. You all had some great points in which i have learned a ton. However, I do know what my ears like and appreciate so I just wanted to chirp in with a quick comment or two now that I have had time listening to these great speakers.

    My equipment;
    NAD M25
    Marantz AV7005
    Oppo 95
    Signal Cable

    1. The first thing that hit me front and center with the 707s is the amount of bass they can emit. wow...even on an old Pioneer SX-780 I could hear the bass wanting to bust out. Once I got my basement in order and got the break in time on the NAD M25, i was even further impressed with the bass. it was very balanced and impressive at low volume (Sting, Police, Zep etc) yet when I go to reference levels they want to breathe...like thoroughbreds!. I notice control and brawn...balanced well...just right for my ears. I have seen some people give it a lil knock for to much bass. I don't hear it. I cant say enough positive things about the bass output on these. I use them for my two channel listening and love them.

    2. Mids and highs are brilliant...no need to say more.

    3. I also got what I wanted...a neutral sounding system with great eye candy for when I show them off. :>)) BOOM!

    I listen to music from A-Z...so I have been getting a good curve of different sounds, styles and vol output.

    Thanks for all the posts above..one of the better threads i have followed. Learned a lot too.

    and..right now I have a perfectly poured Guinness at my bar and cranking Steely Dan Aja - Aja...sounds magnificent!
    Have a great Holiday weekend in sonic heaven!

    Thanks Jim!!

    Well I have had my 707s and 705 for over a month now. I am happy with my SC-37 driving these and now RTiA7s as my surround speakers. But I know all about upgraditis, that is how I ended up with LSIMs :)

    I bought a set of Yamaha,Yamaha A S1000 amplifier,a CD S2000 and a pair of Soavo1 speaker with Monster bi-wire ,I feel that I want more low noise from speakers,I found that LSim707 is rather cheap and I bought the pair from a chop in Bangkok, sell man didn't want me to buy this piar of speaker since because they are not direct dealer.

    They try to offer me many pairs of different brands of speaker but I confirm LSim 707,they said I was the first guy who buy LSim,I purchase the speaker without testing,I felt like I am betting for this kind of speakers.

    I was right,the voice is good but I feel that there is something missing then I went out for a new amplifier,I have got McIntosh Ma7000,then Icame back home and began to wire my new amp to LSim, I found that the wire connecting was wrong in a pole in my former system (LSim,Yamaha S1000).

    I did bi-wire for Mc and LSim but sound quality is not good,the I go back to single wire at 8 ohms,everything is good.

    With this price of LSim,I think it is very cheap when compare with their performance. I think no other speakers can matches LSim in this coming 2 or 3 years.
