  • Well its taken a few long days to put everything back together. It is a pain for sure. The Marantz is a fun unit and does sound better on all formats. The subs both got moved to the front and I plan to add another one back in the rear corner again.…
  • Well I get to wait until Tuesday to get it running. I went to pick up my XLR cables this morning and I guess they are still in Cali due to the fires slowing down things. So Tuesday it is. Sad to see so many people with nothing left. I won't complai…
  • WOW! Nice. If I was in AZ that would be a must. Enjoy.
  • Thorton wrote: » Congrats! If it's anything like my AV8801 or better, I think you're really going to enjoy it. I was amazed how easy it was to set-up and the interface it excellent. You almost don't even need the manual. XT with Sub XT is also…

  • I think 9060's is a good way to go. You have a good setup and they will work well with it. Your receiver will be fine. Powered towers will take a load off the receiver. For sure it will save you from running down the rabbit hole of upgrades.

  • I agree with the Atrium route. I use 3 Atruim8's for my back Patio. they have plenty bass for being outdoors. You can always wire for a Sub if not enough for you. I use an Emotiva 2 channel amp with a Niles speaker selector for 8ohm stability. I h…
  • I agree. Crutchfield has been a good partner for Polk. Nice to see they are Polkies too.
  • Park City Hot Air Balloon Festival was this weekend. Nothing says fun like like Boos and Fire.
  • Great guy for sure.I did a 250 mile drive for work yesterday. Don was playing the whole trip. RIP Don.
  • DaveHo wrote: » They look nice until you get to the plastic power port base. Would have been better on the back, but then where do you mount the amp? Wonder how that will hold up when someone drops a sub. It is the same design as the PSW120…
  • Good to know its not just me. Not cool. I have had 2 sub cables fail from them in the last 2 years. I also have had an HDMI cable fail. I am careful in the way I run cables so the don't have to much stress on the connectors, but it is the connecto…
  • The PowerPort on these subs reminds me of my PSW 1200.
  • I was a Pioneer Elite buyer for 25 years. 9 receivers. Since the Onkyo merger I have not been happy with their products, And let's not even get started about how they dropped the ball on Blu-ray/UHD. I am currently running a Pioneer elite SC87 w…
  • Your Marantz has full pre outs on it. I would add an amp for sure. The Marantz is a good unit and will be a great Pre/Pro for you. I have a 5010 in the MB and I run a Adcom 7500 with it. Your LsiMs will be a lot happier.
  • mrloren wrote: » Well I got around to swapping out the TSX250C for the S30. I waited till today because I also added an amp to my system. Nothing special an Emotiva BasX A300. After getting everything set up I ran Audyssey, this time my little …

  • dromunds wrote: » Congrats! I picked up a pair from a Polkie for a friend's HT and they sounded real fine when I tried them out in my system for a little while. That's a heck of a deal. I thought so too. Very clean and no nicks at all. Gr…
  • I picked up a good set of LS a couple years ago. The previous owner had this build sheet from the 70's. My dad is now retired and runs the 70's every day. He loves them.Mom not so much. I have the 90/350 setup in the office. Great line from Polk …
  • Nice review. I have had few hours with a pair at a local retailer.They are in a close to perfect room on a tube amp that is way out of most budgets. I always wonder if the are going to be that great when I get them home. This gives me a real sense…
