OK...My new 'refurbished' 703's will be here Wednesday from Polk eBay. Thank you everyone for helping convince me to choose the 703's over the RTAi7's.
Now I'm in a quandry. I need speaker stands. I see a few here have listed stands that sell for $300 and up. Not to sound sarcastic but if I planned on spending that much for stands it almost sounds like towers may have been a choice I should have looked at harder....even though the 707's or 705's are quite a bit more.
The stands at kind of caught my eye that look like they may be sturdy enough for me are made by VTI. They have two relatively large diameter vertical tubes and the top plate looks like it should be able to hold the 703's....I hope and I believe I saw they sell for around $130 a pair.
I really do not want to drill holes in the bottom of the speaker. Another suggested using velcro, which may not be so bad. Its just me in my condo for now. I do not own pets or children. Though I may turn up the volume I don't plan on cranking it up so loud that a seismograph will look like one of my lie detector tests.
Any suggestions? Thanks again!!!
