    Given the SDA L800 is coming, I would be inclined to give them an ear first. I must say however, I wish Polk went ribbon or DmD for the tweeters, but I need to hear them first.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    I'm sure the new SDA's will be great but doubt they are contenders with these bad boys! I'd bet my bootie on that! Not even close.

    What a deal on some amazing speakers. Someone in/near Texas should jump on these. If they were within a few hundred miles of upstate NY, I'd be very tempted myself...although my 11 1/2' wide x 23' long living room may not have been able to accommodate these big boys. I am sure they need a large room.

    They certainly look the part. Love that upward slope of the wood:

    Skip. You know anyone that drives to deliver speakers? Or an auto that could accommodate these 500 pound beasts? A day trip? I will bring the money and egg rolls, just not the muscle.

    If I wasn't into the LOVE of the Rosso's Mid range heaven and hadn't already bought some speakers I would have considered buying these even though I do not have the room for them yet until I built another house LOL

    but how cow I think these are special.

    Alright. Making contact.. Reaching out to powers that be. Let’s see if I could move them to my place.
  • tophatjohnnytophatjohnny Posts: 2,565
    Reality check on just how real of a deal 6 thousand dollars will bring in the speaker game. Used or not these babies kill anything out there in this dollar range. Congrats Halen.

    Too early. Been talking to my good buddy, ahem, Skip and wanting to make these work with the space I have. My space as of now will not be optimal for the BE20s. It is heart breaking.

    Sorry to hear these won't work in your space, halen, as I know you really wanted the speakers.

    I am curious...what would be the optimal size room for these speakers?



  • halenhalen Posts: 445
    Around 18 x 25. It needs a lot of room. I am working with custom builders for a guest house in the back. I have not even moved in to my new home build yet.

    I can’t build a place based on audio requirements before living/income/rental requirements.
  • tophatjohnnytophatjohnny Posts: 2,565
    Dang ..perfect for my bedroom to replace the 6381's. It's that 6 grand I am not wanting to part with. Ouch. But again..see what that 6K brings$

    Thanks, Halen. There is also an Usher BE-10 which would fit a small to medium sized room much better tthan the BE-20. From what I have read (I have not heard them in person), the BE-10 speakers sound as good as their bigger siblings.
