So I picked up an LSIM 704C on the weekend on sale, currently running it off a yamaha rx-v671 and my fronts are polk audio rt25i's.
So a few questions:
How important is timbre matching?
Will LSI7's or LSI9's timbre match with the lsim 704c?
Will my receiver be able to power the 704 and the lsi's without external amplification?
Are the lsim 703's so good/so important to timbre match, that it would be worth spending 1500 bucks on them instead of getting lsi7s for 350 bucks or lsi9s for 550?
Would something like paradigm studio 10's go ok with the lsim center?
I am thinking of getting an emotiva xpa-3 eventually. Should I buy speakers first or the xpa-3 first? Would the xpa-3 improve the sound on my lsim and rt25i setup?
Thanks for the help.
