I'm surprised there are still no takers for the lsi stock on sale (example Amazon).. Comments?
I've been looking for some new speakers for 2 channel which is currently a Marantz SA 8004 CD/SACD + Yam A S2000 integrated + Paradigm V60's + HSU STF 2. What I lack is the rendition of classical orchestral music with more scale and presence. I briefly listened to the MAG 1.7's and might go back for an extended listen. However most of the time I listen to small groups whether classical or jazz and a few instruments which my present setup does well. For HT, which I am not that serious about, unless it is a musical sound track, I have Polks- RTA12's for mains in one and SDA 2's.
I'm thinking of ordering a pair of LSI 15's, if they don't work in 2 channel then maybe I can migrate them to my HT and displace the RTA's (I also have a pair of SDA 2's in another room). But then the problem of timbre matching with the rest of the HT polk speakers which, I don't remember the model names but they are of the pre-LSI vintage (RT?).
I'd like to hear what I would gain with the LSI15's, will my Yam A 2000 (it does have a 4 ohm rating) drive them? Why is it that they are not being snapped up, is it the snob factor? Thanks as always.
