    Good or bad..., these sound good to me coming from a set of sonys...

    I honestly feel there is lot of difference the way they sounded on saturday morning to sunday night... and that too they are running off my Onkyo TX-NR 709 receiver.

    I cant wait to listen to them After connecting the black mamba..., after its burning time and after the burning time of the Shorguns... There is a lot more package waiting for me

    Enjoy it! That's some very desirable gear you have,been looking hard at the 707's and the "Black Mamba" myself. Keep us posted once you get it all together and some hours on it....let the electronics burn-in and the suspensions break in a bit.

    Generally speaking when some body does a purchase like this they tend to have some sort of buyers remorse .... well atleast i do...
    But not with this purchase the quality look and feel make me feel every dollar well spent.

    Go for it .., the black mamba woulnt disappoint you ...

    Maybe Stevie Wonder can't tell the difference but I definitely can see they're not black. You can send my $100 via PayPal. Seriously though if you claim they look 100% black than either you're blind or they changed the color because my 703's was very dark brown/purple-ish.

    Anyway congrats on your new system and I hope you enjoy it.

    guys,
    it's black under normal home lighting. you only see different colors when you shine light directly at it or with a camera flash. the outcome color depends on the light source. the pic on Polk website looks more purple and I really like it, until I received my 703, 706, 707. they're all black. kinda disappointed, in fact.

    LOL, I was looking at the black mamba amp and I was thinking, am I missing something, it sure doesn't look purple to me. That's what I get for only reading page 2 of this thread. Gorgeous amp Sumerian, it is very striking!

    Funny - Polk's Ebay site calls them black as does the Future Shop website - either way they look nice to me.

    How much you willing to bet those stool legs were straight before she sat down? A woman like that will make any "leg" start questioning just how straight it really is.

    New toys are always cool in this hobby. Congrat's bro'. So tell us your first impressions once you get everything all hooked up, dialed in and performing in concert......whenever you can peel away from the listening chair for a moment, that is.

    Few updates...
    leroyjr1,
    I stand corrected i do see the other color well if i see at an angle ..., though it doesnt look purple but not 100% black.

    Its been four days and i think the bass on these is real good and boomy.... still running on fronts and centers only no sub, no black mamba and no surrounds.

    Cooking the fronts,center and shotguns
