    Well, this thread has been derailed.

    oh, yeah. Dang. Sorry.
    When (!) we get a moderator @F1nut can ask that the (my) extraneous junk be deleted.
    In fact, I'll flag them myself.
    Sorry!

    How did you find the imaging on the L200's? I realize the less than optimal placement,but I'll ask anyway.
    See my profile for list of gear.

    Steve uses the words voluptuous and luscious to describe the sound. That was always my impression of the big old SDAs. Always a pleasure to listen to. Not Klipsch.

    Excellent review my man, and dig the comic relief. So in the end, is it safe to say that the new Boss is indeed better than the old Boss ?

    Unfortunately, my photo skills with an iPhone leave much to be desired (especially in less than optimal lighting conditions) so likely will leave to others to post more photos. Besides, most Polk aficionados have seen L200 photos on the other previously posted threads.

    I want to see detailed drivers crossover and internal bracing pics

    Lol. I would’ve had to pledge that black spot where my soul should be as security to Jesse before that would happen. >:)

    Finally, a shout-out to the Peerless Monitor 4s! ;). Thanks Don. Your review is going to make the rest of us look bad.

    Very nice review Don. You inspired me to listen to Shangri-La.

    Me, too, but even I have a sufficiently high moral & ethical standard not to have gone after the "Eastern" demo pair with prying and screwdriving implements.

  • Best write-up I've read yet, although I'm not very familiar with much of the music used for the review. I especially appreciate the needed comparison to the Lsim 703.

    EXCELLENT Review Don! To say that the L200's can hang with the Taylo Reference Monitors and the Dyn's is quite substantial and intriguing.

    Cant wait to get my hands on a pair!

  • Holy smokes what a review! Really can't wait to get my ears on them :)

    Heck of a review Don, you may have missed your calling.
