    Default LSiM707 Demo Gathering San Diego

    Mark has graciously offered me the opportunity to pick up the LSiM707's from Polk in Vista and I am opening up my home for fellow Polkies to get their ears on them.

    No date is set yet but I plan to have the gathering some time in August so that the speakers can make their way eastward in a reasonable time. For starters, please post your interest and weekend dates you are available.

    Since I won't get the speakers until sometime this week and need some time to get them dialed in, I'm thinking that Saturday the 20th is a reasonable date. That will allow enough time to pull this off and make it a success.

    I'm hoping for a big turnout. There's plenty of room. The speakers will be in a 20' x 30' listening area and there is plenty of parking so let's make this a big event.

    Best regards,
    doug

    The 20th looks good to me. The wife will be out of town so I don't even need to ask permission. Just find a sitter for the kids "hello grand parents".

    As far as gear is concerned, I plan to have these set up with the following:

    Anthem Pre2L tube preamp
    Dual Parasound HCA-1200ii SS amps; Provides 250Wpc @ 8Ohms
    Marantz SA-15S2 SACD player
    MIT Shotgun S3 IC's
    Signal Cable Magic Power Cords connected to a PS Audio Power Port Premier

    Nice to haves if other members can help out:
    MIT Shotgun S3 Speaker cables (I currently have MIT T2 cables)
    Another power amp to switch out for comparison (200Wpc@8Ohms minimum)
    Solid State Preamp for comparison.
    Redbook and SACD's
    Concert DVD's (in case someone wants to test drive the SRT's)

    Arggh....20th won't work for me, our dojo is hosting a seminar all that weekend and I'm head coordinator.

    You guys know the drill - pics and a write up! Have fun and don't burn the steaks!

    The 20th is not set in concrete yet. The 27th is also an option.

    I've received input from a couple of members that Sundays would work better. Let me know. How does the 28th look?

    Guys, no pissing on anything, but try and keep this LSiM focused, not just another Polk gathering. SRT, SDA, Monitors, RT, etc have all already had their day. This is a NEW day. What Polk is doing here is unprecedented. Rock it. Rock it hard with LSiM and enjoy the opportunity given.

    Give real, honest, thought out feedback, that's the payment Polk HQ wants in return.

    Cheers,
    Russ

    That is absolutely the intent. I'm looking for a group of people to attend that will make the committment to a full day of getting the most out of the LSiM's.

    That said, I won't turn down a request from anyone who wants to hear the SRT's. Even though they 'had their day', they are a speaker worth experiencing and I'm guessing the opportunity doesn't present itself very often to most members.

    Possibly SRT, LSiM707 and LSi25 side by side Demo?

    Who knows, you'll hand me over the SRT and kept LsiM707 instead.

    It is possible the next guy picking up from you will be in serious trouble.

    You got Lsi25 or can anyone bring a pair?
    Trying out Different Audio Cables is a Religious Affair. You don't discuss it with anyone.

    It would not be complete without testing them against a few others. I understand this is all about the LSiM's, but I think that waht everyone want's to know is how well do they stack up against the past and against other brands.

    Who knows, I might just not hand ANY speakers over to anyone including the LSiM's!

    Norm Apter has attended the last two gatherings and has a stellar pair of modded LSi9's that would make a great comparison. Haven't heard from him yet though.....

    I agree. The nice thing about my preamp is that it has two sets of pre-outs so we could actually switch quickly between speakers if need be. My third Parasound would provide an identical amplifier for the comparison speakers making it a very fair evaluation.

    It's your demo Doug so run with it as you see fit. I think its important for folks to hear the SRT since it's just as rare right now.

    FWIW Sundays are a no go for me as our Pastor is retiring on the 28th, and I am not missing any of his last few sermons, as preaching is truly his gift.
    Of course I am only 1 guy, possibly bring along another.

    I apoligize for the terrible pictures. The sun was setting behind those windows and made it impossible to get good shots.
