    Default LSiM707 and LSiM703 Demo Ready

    I have a pair of LSiM707 and a pair of LSiM703 ready to ship.

    The main issue is you must have decent gear to run them, especially the LSiM707.

    And since they are a freight only speaker for now....who's on the West Coast, that is capable of perhaps picking them up and subsequently handing them off to the next person? They're in the Vista, CA office right now....the LSiM703 are with me on the East Coast.

    You don't have to drive for hours and I'm just trying to see who's close for logistical curiosity. I will ship them if I have to but they will be coming towards this coast fairly quickly as I'm not gonna have these banging around for 20 trips. This is the most expensive speaker we've shipped so far and we're looking at 5 stop maximum if they have to do freight. I'll do as many hand to hand demos as you want, if Polkies can deliver to one another....its up to you guys and how motivated you are. The first pickup is the biggest I imagine.

    Speak up, let's get these moving.

    I am in on the 707's and can get them first thing monday morning! I am in Los Angeles and Vista is just a couple hours south. I would be happy to audition them for anyone that would like to hear them as well as help in transfering them to others.

    My Tube amps will be up and running soon but til then, I have a Mcintosh 275 in the mix, along with my Sunfire 425/5 and the tube pre.

    I'd love to demo them, if my gears considered to be up to snuff. Pickup/delivery wouldn't be a problem for me, within a reasonable distance.

    I'm interested in trying the 703s, and I'll be willing to hand deliver to any Phoenix area people, and meet Tucson people halfway so they can make the rounds there too. I'd run them with my new NAD T775, if that qualifies.

    Bring it on! I have SDA's so big and heavy is nothing I am not used to already. I welcome the thought of comparing Polk's very best with the legends of their past. I will be in the market soon for something else, and I am hoping to keep it Polk. If these can best the TL's, I might just bite the bullet on a pair.

    I am in for the LSiM707. I am near Los Angeles, CA but will drive a reasonable distance to pick them up and hand over to the next person.

    If I am eligible, I can send a list of gears in the email.

    Since I am almost around the corner from you, and if the timing of the 3's for you and 7's for me could be worked out maybe a local get together with two rigs and both sets of speakers could be in order. Just a thought.

    If you do end up getting them for Demo , you could bring them to my store for a killer demo. We can compare them to many speakers in their price point and use some really nice gear to drive them with.
    I'm thinking Bryston , Cambridge audio , Krell , Primare , Anthem and maybe even some Pioneer Elite SC to see how they go on a receiver.
    Looks like Amherst is close as well being in NJ so we could all demo them together. Have a small get together.

    Let me know what you guys wanna do.

    Myself and IndyHawg are interested in hearing them if they come this way. I know that leroyjr1 is about 5.5 hours away from me with Newrival in Chicago along with some others...

    Would be willing to make a drive to Chicago area to pickup if needed.......

    I'm up for either one and if you can give dimensions in the box I'm pretty sure I could hand them off as long as they fit in a hatchback with the seats down.

    I live in Illinois about 90 miles outside Chicago.

    I'd like to get in on this, but living in Hawaii the freight costs probably aren't feasible. Have fun and enjoy, fellas.

    Mantis - I very interested in this and when I get them back on this side, you can get both of them for a couple weeks up there. This is going to be a few months so does that timing still work for you?

    I see we have the pickup in CA taken care of thru member(s) Edoggrc51, Dpowell and Megasat16. Who else is in California? How can we handoff to someone in the mid-west/southwest? We need to be beyond or near the Nevada state line for example. Who's around CO....AZ....NM, etc etc?

    Is everyone willing to drive at least one hour, one way to help deliver these to the next member?

    As far as the LSiM703 starting in GA for example....where can the handoff happen between that area? To Florida? Towards NC?

    Who can pick them up from me in MD?

    Once these start moving a particular way or the route is established, it won't change.

    Hawaii and Canada are not going to happen guys but thank you Keiko for offering. I know they would do well there.
