    The 806 was about the last generation of Onkyo products with decent power. I think you'll be fine. I'd advise you to consider the 705 bundle if there is one.

    Looks like I am about to buy another bundle with 705's 703's and a 706c. I'll use the 705's for rears and have a spare set of 703's for pc speakers. Just would need to sell my 702's and spare 706c. With my room configuration and the need for adding ear level speakers, I can't hang the 702's.

    Probably as good as it is ever going to get at their current price!!
    You can always sell the excess ones.

    Mine will be here next week.

    and the 702's could g to another poor dude that loves the rounded shape soo much that I found another affordable speaker the Artison Portrait LRS with a similar shape.

    The 702's have intrigued me for so long...but even at F&F $750 price they were too steep for my budget. I missed a CL deal for a set in the $300 price range. I also love the 706 center as well. I sold my LSiM stuff with the idea that I would build some big , high performing ribbon tweeter based DIY designs. That has not happened and I don't know if or when. Maybe I'll go back to the LSiM's?

    I have no issues with the shape of them. Just hard to find a good mounting location at ear level. I have been struggling with the idea of putting 705's in the rear. Might start a new thread on any practical use for rear towers in HT.

    When I lived in Florida, I went to the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona several times and those rotors really showed up in the moderately-lit infield sections after it got dark. :p

    Sadly I am not done. Got the itch to find a Parasound A51 to power the big boys and center. Fortunately the Denon is handling my room just fine. I probably would have spent 5 grand or more going with brand X. Finding these huge discount deal actually saved me money.

    Yes, the 806 is certainly a workhorse. I did consider the 705 bundle, but for a few extra hundred, I thought I’d go for the 707’s, which will give me future options for music listening that may or may not include a sub.

    Just curious: Is your suggestion based on the fact that I don’t have an amp, or for another reason? I ask because I am also looking for a used 3-5 channel amp.

    BTW, thanks for your advice.

    Glad I got the 707's for HT use. Will have the option to use my 705's for music when in the mood. Just usually go sit in front of my 2.3TL's for tunes.

    It’s not so much the value as it would be a PITA to try to sell them. I don’t want another HT setup hanging around, too wasteful. I was curious if it would really be worth the effort haha
  • EarthyEarthy Posts: 477
    It's tough to pass up these great buys on LSiM speakers. I have no experience with the LSi, but if I wasn't overhaulling my HT, I would have been happy to keep using my LS70 HT setup. The difference is night and day. So much fuller and alive. Still I think you can be happy with anything you have. Just have to keep a level head. Something I am not very good at. :)

    What makes the 705’s better speakers? I just picked up the 707 package for my home theater. I love them, but I’m gonna need a dedicated amp sooner rather than later. Lol. The rx-a2070 is great but I know there is so much more the speakers want to give.

    Many here on the forum (I was not one of them) had a chance to sample the LSiM models very early on before or during the initial release. Many have said that the 705 is the most accurate speaker in the LSiM line. Some have said that the 707 is not as balance from the top "Sonic engine" down to the woofer range.

    Still, the 707 is a very nice set of speakers. I really liked the 703's I had in the HT and have only heard the 707 in a HT setting. The 707's are the ones that I originally wanted but it would be nice to try a set of the 705's. I found an unheard of deal on a set but the guy backed out and decided to keep them for his basement system.

    Out with the old, in with the NEW.

    A quick cable swap, no calibration, no proper speaker placement.
    Just a quick 5 minutes of audition.

    Depth, articulate, effortless energy...its all there

    Money well spent. Call me one happy customer.
