Hey you guys, It's been a while since I've been on these forums and just popping in to ask a few questions from those of you who know this speak?
This GW find is what got me into audio (vintage audio specifically). About a year and a half ago I hooked these up and haven't looked back as these seem to be a great balance for both theater and old school 2 channel listening. I've since tried JBL L100's,JBL GHE 1000v's, ADS 810's,L710's,L910's, BA 150's,several Dahlquist models....and others. All these speakers have been at least very good to some actually being nicer than the LS70's (for one reason or another). Still....the footprint size,performance level,looks (shape) and the "Polk sound" have left these LS70's being my speakers that I use the most! (The sound stage for such a small footprint speaker can't help leave me impressed.)
My priorities are because of this...I have a small run of wall space and a custom,low slung,audio stand that is getting close to completion. After some custom treatment to these speaks, the late '50's Danish look of the whole thing will be incredible and match well with our living room look. I'll end up keeping the best speakers (from what I have) and these look like they will be staying too....until my listening space changes dramatically
What I've heard with comparisons to it's siblings suggests that these have a little room for improvement using some mods that kick there level of performance up a bit. What are the best things to do with these? I enjoy 'em,love the looks with this series, and after I finish them with walnut,throw on some mellow amber skirt lighting,carpet post elevated Wilkison Sandstone base,internals all they can be....there going to stick for a long,long time. (I'll post pics.)
Gear I'll be running them with my just completed 15 receiver collection:
Theater: Modern Onkyo AVR
Two Channel (in rotation):
1. Sansui G-9000
2. Sanyo JCX 2900K
3. Sansui 9090db
4. Pioneer SX-1010
5. Pioneer SX-1250
6. Marantz 2325
7. The early 70's "littlest brother" (to each brand of these) "Where performance quality just starts to compete with big bro".
Is there a best approach with crossovers,capping,stuffing,etc....? Appreciate it and know several of you guys know both Polk....and older gear.
