    lol. I haven't played with position much yet, but they seem to do a lot better off axis than the original LSi's. I usually put a very generous toe-in on LSi's, but these LSiM's are doing great straight ahead.

    They hold their own surprisingly well. In fact, I can imagine that some listeners would even prefer the LSiM's over the Ushers. The Ushers are more detailed, but there is a certain pleasantness to the LSiM's that is quite intoxocating... or maybe that's the beer...

    I can't believe the bass these guys put out.

    Just a heads up, I will be bowing out from the Polk Audio demo programs as I don't have the time to manage them. However, it certainly was my pleasure to fill in temporarily.

    Polk Audio's own, Jon_S will be taking over this and all the other Polk demo programs in the very near future. Be aware that there will be major changes to the way the programs are run.

    That's a fair policy.

    Didn't even know you worked for Polk (or perhaps you just volunteered time). Now I feel bad for PMing doro regarding demo questions.

    I thought they just had an extremely pleasant cohesion about them. The musicality was friggen awesome.

    Yea, man. The word "pleasant" does not sound nearly as impressive as the way that I mean it, but that's the best word I've got for now. I could listen to these speakers for days on end.

    Anthony, thanks for the hand off. Good to meet a Polkie face to face!

    Man I would love to hear these. I thought about signing up for the demo, since I knew they were coming through the area. I just don't have the right room in my house to do them justice.

    I'll tell ya, they might not need it. I had them straight out, and the imaging was really good. Now they might just do a little better with some toe in, but I don't think it's as critical with these as with the original LSi's. YMMV

    We're working on a Owner Demo program that allows prospective buyers a chance to hear the new series in a properly setup enviroment. Stand-By for more information but this is something that's been talked and discussed for quite some time at Polk....and is finally taking shape.
