    Holy crap, thank you so much for this! I've been eyeing down the 703's and 704 to go with it forever, today is the day I finally purchased!

    Now to toss those RTi12's and CSi5 on Craigslist....

    I have a set and paid $4600 for them.. Don't think too long! GRAB THEM!

    If you can only afford a set grab 2 705s for stereo! Complete the set later.

    I wish the wife would let me score a set of 702 for 7 channel but I seriously doubt it!

    705s for me go plenty deep for both music and movies! Did not notice anything missing while switching the sub on and off going over the same material.

    705s are damn sexy,heavy and awesome sounding!

    How do you like the LSiM driven by the Emotiva?

    I'm glad you asked.. There great together! Everything I've read on this forum with people dissing on Emo is a bunch of bull. Glad I listened to those that said let you ears decide as i'm extremely happy with the setup!

    I run high res music through my HTPC into the receiver 192/24 bit and also SACDs from the Oppo player and says this setup gives me everything I want and need! hehe. No sub needed for my setup.

    No bright sound at all as a lot of people said would happen. Tons of midrange and deep bass and plenty of jaw dropping dynamics!

    Very happy with them.. only wish I would of snagged a XPA-5 instead of the XPA-3 so I could use the 5 for C/S and rear surrounds in the future but its all I need currently.

    So LSIM and Emotiva amps are a great match!

    Eclypse, have you tried running those LSIM's on any other amps beside Emo?

If you're one of the 80% like me, set yourself up with a mail service on the U.S. side and have your products sent there. I've been buying from Emotiva, and Amazon over the last year with great success (and free shipping). This is my first order via Polk and the process went smooth. I was going to pick up another DSW550pro sub for my HT near the end of this year, but it's hard to beat at $269 right now.

    Already have one 550, wanted to add another (for aesthetics if nothing else). I was also looking at the 6000 sound bar for upstairs, geez I've got to stay away from that site!

    Do you add a US address to your credit card? I do have a shipping place right across the border, but only works if I get them on the phone and have them ship to a different address then my card has....

    Only the Denon 3313CI receiver.

    Not idea what one would want that the emo don't offer.. its dead silent and plenty of power when needed. Amplifies the signal as expected.. if your source sounds like crap it will sound like crap, if its good it will sound good ;)

    Yes, I called Visa and had the mail service set up as a secondary address. Works well for buying from anyone in the U.S. except New Egg.

    I've run my LSi15s with my current Jolida 140w tube monos, 500w Red Dragon class D monos, and both Emotiva XPA-2 and Emotiva XPA-100 monos. LSi's sounded great with each of them.

    Jolida doesn't make a 140 wpc tube amp.

    You say they all sound great. Do they sound different because there's no way they all sound the same.

    Until you try a different amp, you won't know. I mean going from an AVR to adding an amp and then proclaiming it doesn't get any better is....well, laughable.

    I think you guys are both missing each others points. Everyone knows there are better amps, more expensive amps, different sounding amps, etc.

    eclypse seems to be content that the amp performs as expected... but he did not acknowledge the fact that there are different sounding amps available. OTOH, F1nut did not acknowledge the fact that eclypse is content.

    F1nut was talking about something else.
    Had something to do with him thinking that as long as the Emo amplifies the signal, there should be no difference in sound. I would say that's a tad off base, wouldn't you ?

    Is emotiva so bright that a notch down on treble wouldn't correct it?

    Emo amps don't sound bright with my speakers.. never once did I feel the need to turn the music off cause the sound was bothering me. Never did my wife or kids say anything about it either. Nor my parents that have listened to it or anyone else.

    An amp is not supposed to add something that is not there or true to the original sound. I've been into music since a young age and played drums since 14-15 years old (i'm 40). I know what sounds right and it sounds right to me.

    If one is interested in changing the sound then get a different Processor/DAC or a new set of speakers.

    All amps have a sound signature, period.

    Eclypse, I hear you on the music thing.....I started playing drums when I was 8 and music took me to different parts of the world and opened my ears from average to critical...I'm 47.

    However, there it is right there! We all tend to hear different and have different taste. Some buy speakers and amps every 10 years, and some swap, speakers, amps, cables, etc. so fast it will make your head spin.

    No doubt there is a strong group that dislikes EMO(and will never let one join the audiophile club with one in their rig)....they talk about the amp being bright. However, there is a group that thinks the LSiM line has a less than airy and extended top end. Many talk about "SYNERGY"....why would it be a surprise to find and EMO/LSiM combo?

    Further.....we all have read about others that have used several brands of gear like Parasound, McIntosh, etc.. that have switched to EMO. If a guy thinks that EMO is the Bees Knees, than that is their experience....let them enjoy the music....don't knock them for it!!!

    I'm sure we all have read reviews or heard "BIG" dollar gear that was not impressive given the cost.

    YMMV....why not be a man about it and leave it at that? The one thing I'm sure of is that everyone's critical ear is different! You may love your own rig but some may not!

    It's a modified pair of JD502P. Among other things, they're running KT120s paralleled. And yeah, they're right at 140w each.

    Of course there's a difference. Mainly the Dragons and Jolidas are warmer and softer. They ALL provide excellent sound.

    I am new, but own Rtia9, csia6 and rtia3. Also, own the old sets of rti series. Just close my eyes few days ago to put an order of lsim705, lsim704 and lsim703. Price is so attractive that cannot pass this time. I skip the surround, but get 703 instead. Hopefully, I made a good decision.
