Rated 5 out of 5 by from The hype is real Very capable speakers. Upgraded from the TSx550t. Immediately better low end performance. Very happy with how they fill the room and provide great stereo imaging. Thanks for confirming my bias, Polk. You guys rock. I remain a fanboy.

Questions

I have a Rotel A11 Tribute paired with Triangle Borea BR03. I want to upgrade into a tower, hence I am considering to buy Polk R700. Will the A11 Tribute have enough power to push R700 potential? Can I bi-amp R700 with A11's speaker A and B terminals? Thx

Asked by: Aldo199
Hello, The Rotel A11 Tribute is on the lower end of the R700 power rating but should be enough to power it to a solid listening level. Most speakers will only be usings a few watts of power while playing back at a comfortable level. Bi amping is something you could do if you wish to but ultimately you could get away with bi wiring or using the bridge between binding posts.

Would the denon A1H provide the power requirements you speak of if the speaker is bi amped?

Asked by: Unisandman
Hello, With the A1H, you would not need to bi amp the R700 speakers. Bi wiring will provide appropriate power or even simply running one speaker cable pair to the speaker with the jumpers installed will be appropriate. Of course you can always experiment with your setup if you wish to bi amp them, in which case please be sure to remove the jumpers before doing so, both for Bi amping and Bi wiring. Here is a link to the AVR's manual about bi amping for reference https://manuals.denon.com/AVRA1H/NA/EN/DRDZSYbiqqjfof.php#DRDZMLoywtasqw

Well adding a 2nd stereo amplifier is not an option, in this case these are not a good fit for my needs. I can look for 8-ohm speakers and connect 2 in parallel for a 4-ohm load driven by an amp can handle low impedance.

Asked by: Mr Lee
Hello, Our speakers are not designed to be daisy chained and require independent connection to a single channel on an amp. Attempting to run these speakers in parallel or series will cause harm to the speakers. We would also recommend that you reach out to Emotiva for more information on how attempting these connection methods may damage their amps as well.

Since you stated that your speakers can accept 4, 6 & 8 ohm connections, I want to have 4 speakers for wider stereo coverage, what is the best way to connect them using Emotiva BasX A2 Stereo Amplifier? Your specs say minimum 3.6 ohm, is series ok?

Asked by: Mr Lee
Hello, our speakers are designed to be connected in Parallel. Connecting the speakers in series is not recommended. Each speaker should be connected to its own dedicated amplified channel. The soundstage can be increased with proper setup using two speakers. If you want to connect four R700 speakers, a second 2-channel amplifier will be required.

How the r700 works with vintage audio?? Specifically a SAE 2100L preamp and two SAE 2300 power amps with 150 wrms per channel in 8 ohms each one? Both are capable to manage 4 ohms speakers

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello, If your equipment is running to spec, combining your SAE pre-amo and power amps with the R700s will likely prove to be an impressive pairing.

I just purchased a Denon AVR- S760H will I be able to pair it with the R700?

Asked by: Mack_a
The Polk Audio R700 speakers provide you with flexibility when pairing an amplifier. It is compatible with 8-, 6-, or 4-ohm amplifiers. And at 88dB sensitivity, it is relatively easy to drive. Short answer: yes, the Denon AVR-S760H will pair nicely with the Polk Audio R700 speakers. However, I will add that it will only improve as you upgrade amplification.

Hello Polk👍I've recently purchased the R700, and I'm in the market for a matching streaming "all in one" amp. Will the Cambridge EVO 150 fit the R700s?

Asked by: SoulSlave
Hello, and thank you for your purchase. Regarding amp pairing, we have yet to pair the R700 speakers with the Cambridge EVO 150. However, after a quick glance, it looks like a worthy piece of gear. I do want to provide you with an additional option. The Marantz Model 40n Integrated Amplifier. The Model 40n pairs very well with the R700 speakers and offers similar features to the EVO. https://www.marantz.com/en-us/product/amplifiers/model40n Happy listening.

I have a Polk Audio RT-2000p for my L&R fronts. Will replacing it with the R700 give a significant improvement in sound quality and performance?

Asked by: Dan66
Yes, we believe so. Since their release, as good as the RT-2000p speakers are, there have been significant advancements in Driver, Cabinet, and X-Over design. The new R700 speakers should prove to be worthy replacements.
