    As opposed to Bose black or Bose Walnut.

    Im a third, not a fan of white. They are "too loud" for me...and the music isn't even playing yet?!?!

    I do love the brown signature line though.

    Color does not matter, sound matters. Color comes 2nd. That's why I have the black walnut, brown would have been a lot better color match but could not pass on the Adorama deal

    The white would look cool maybe in some houses but not mine. Then again they would blend well out in the living room with the white sofa. Wife wouldn't even know they are there for months.
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

    haha only been a member for like 11 years or so.

    Don't think I would have gotten the white if that was my choice when I got my S60.

    Close! I've seen and heard some uglya$$ speakers that sounded great. I've seen some works of art that fell flat......

    In this sense....colourful speakers have their place in certain environments.
    Are they statement furniture pieces? Or are they designed for function over fashion........??

    Im hiding this nugget in this thread Skip. Sold the 703s already (made some money too). I couldn't get used to the tweeter. Accurate and while not bad sounding, lacked the bloom and air that ive grown accustomed to with nautilus tweeters. How do the Sig series handle the high end?
  • deronb1deronb1 Posts: 5,094
    Thanks. Yeah, might come a bit closer. I may pull the trigger on some S60s at next FF if offered.

    There isn't a Polk speaker made that sounds like a B&W.

    While not "intimately" familiar with the 703/705 etc.... I have heard them.
    They sounded lively on the highs and the mids wanted you to be "there"....but were just as happy knowing that just connecting emotionally with them was "just as good" My .02.......

    But! In a another thinly veiled sexual innuendo.
    The Sigs want you to like them. They come out with the freshly updated package.
    Looks great from an outward appearance, but you can see a bit of her history lying beneath the new veneer.
    "I'm here and I have new bewbs! Look at them!
    But way down deep below that sassy upfront plastic surgery....is the same pretty girl you fell in love with 44 years ago.

    It does take going through changes to realise you were OK after all....



    It took me 30 minutes to say that......

    Flakey Jimmy told me he managed a pair of S60s for a ridiculously low price. Delivery on the 11th. Will swing by to help him set up and get the skinny. Will post back when I get the specifics. Now to get him educated on properly driving them and to quit buying receivers and AVRs and stuff that isn't really a bargain (I know, I know, I did/do the same thing...)
    I just heard from Flakey Jimmy this morning. He took delivery of his new "S60s" yesterday afternoon, the ones he was telling me he got an amazing deal on in the Polk Ebay store, one that even I couldn't believe, and looked like it had expired when I went to go check it out.

    Wellt, turns out FJ actually ordered Monitor 60s by mistake lol. Attributes it to excitement and emotional buying. Guess I shouldn't have unleashed so much system on him at one time.
