    Default Why am I up at 3 in the morning?? Hint LSiM 703 ...

    Just too excited to sleep. I get my LSiM 703 tomorrow. FedEx has it at its facility in Chicago and will deliver it tomorrow. This wait is killing me!!

    I will take some pics and upload it tomorrow.

    Along with LSiM 703 pair I also get my LSiM704c. I did order a sub woofer too (DSW PRO 660wi) but its back ordered and is to arrive second week of September.
    Will be hooking these to my Denon 4306 and use KEF KHT 3005 satellite as surround for now.
    Denon 2910 will be CD player.

    Man this wait is killin me!!

    Chicago Rocks , loved my time spent there. Tilted Kilt didn't hurt either.

    And they are here. Hooked it up and played some Eagles(Hell Freezes Over) and Neil Young (Unplugged) and.....well got blown away. Sometimes one thinks why I did not do this earlier. Sound is so beautiful with amazing depth.

    I had a quick question. I am not Bi Wiring the speakers. In that case does it matter if I wire it on top slot or bottom slot on LSiM 703?

    Here are a few images. I have placed it on chair right now as stand was shipped today. Should be here by Monday.

    Chairs make for interesting stands, what do you plan to replace them with?

    They'll sound better once you get some real stands for them. That cushion is doing everything it can to make those 703's sound as bad as they can.


    Congrats! I'm glad you're happy with the speakers. They are the best Polk has put out in at least 20 years.

    The chairs are temporary till Monday.
    I bought SANUS SYSTEMS SF-30B Steel Speaker Stand which is to arrive by Monday.

    @WLDock .. thanks for the link to custom speaker stand. I will look into that.

    Long listening session is about to begin.

    Oh my girlfriend and I also plan on opening a bottle of wine and spending some time in front of speakers this weekend. She likes Indigo Girls so I had ordered a CD set for her. I think I can make her fall in love with the speakers.
