Polk Legend L200 Review from The Audiophiliac (Steve Guttenberg)

"Full sounding speaker...this speaker makes bass.. solid solid bass"

"Very easy speaker to live with. Its not doing anything wrong"

"If you want to listen for pleasure, the L200s are definitely worth considering and definitely worth auditioning"




(I know this was posted in the L200 demo post but just making a separate post so its easy to find by newbies)

    Looks like his happy hobby turned in to habitual hoarding. Of course, I've never seen a home with enough storage. Reminds me of when I got married, and my wife systematically threw out all my treasures. I have very little left of my former bachelor estate. I'm interested in seeing Steve's listening space.

    Thanks for the link. I haven't watched the video. I enjoyed reading the comments below it. Kind of like the forum banter here sometimes. I learn bits here and there from reading. Kind of sad how the comments immediately went right after Steve's ownership (or not) of the gear.

    Besides, since when did ownership have to do about who paid for what? Take our entire country for example....

    I know it wasn't featured, but how about that headphones tree? Wow.

    Right, the internet always brings negativity. I'm sure every reviewer has a mix of stuff they purchased and stuff they might have gotten for free or discounted. Who really cares? and why?

    Anyway, not much of the seating area is shown but its NY. Homes, apts, etc. are small to begin with...then factor in all of his gear and music collection.
