    @dolbyd planning on a pair of L700 towers to replace your RTi towers?

    That is a good thought for upgrades but for H.T. the 9s are still a great way to go. Maybe?

    I have been thinking about starting the basement and I have an area that would make the perfect L800 setup.
    I can’t wait to hear them properly setup. I do wish Broadway Music was still in Business here in SLC.
    They were a true Polk Shop in the day and would have had these for preview.

    The Basement will be a couple years of work for me. I guess we see what the future holds.
    Main room- RTiA9 x4, CSiA6, in ceiling Atmos RT-70 x4, SVS PC 4000 x2, Marantz 7705, OPPO 203, Emotiva DR3 G3, Emotiva XPA-2 G3, Emotiva XPA-5 G3, Emotiva X300, Sony 75" 940E, Panasonic Plasma VT50, PS Audio Power Port X2, Perfect Wave AC-5 x8, Douglas jumpers, SVS Ultra speaker cables, Transparent IC, Furman PFi20 W/Cullen cable, SoildSteel S4-4 rack, GIK room treatments

    Office-Infinity Kappa 600, Kappa Center, in ceiling Polk RC80i, Marantz 5012, OPPO 203, Pioneer Elite PDF-59 CD, PSA Stellar 300, Sony 510C 48"

    Master BR- LSi7, LSiC, LSI700 in ceiling, SVS-PC 2000, Marantz 7704, Emotiva XPA-5 G2, OPPO 203, Pioneer DVL-919 Laser Disc, Sony 55" 800B

    Patio- SDI Atrium8 x3, Emotiva A-100 amps x3

    My SDA SRS 1.2TL's were originally purchased at Broadway Music in SLC by the owner prior to me. He gave me the original paperwork. The Polk shipping cartons (heavy cardboard) have Broadway Music (address) stamped on each of them from Polk.

    Nice
    I do miss that store.
    SDA setups at that store were amazing. To bad I was so young when they were in their prime.
    I did buy a lot of speakers from my LS90s RT16s and my RT2000p/CS1000p setup
    Great Polk support for sure.

    I bought my full LS set there (LS70, CS350 and LS FX). It was a cooler shop down on Broadway, even though the place on South State was bigger... now it’s a frickin’ pawn shop:-(

    Nice.
    Every time I pass both places I get nostalgic.
    I miss the one on one of a true audio salesman.
    They seemed to be educating me in the early days for all those sales years later. It worked.
    My nephews are always asking me questions about audio and formats. I feel they will be following in my footsteps with audio. It a good thing.

    I wonder if this guy has a program that just generates these random posts. I can’t imagine anyone actually spending the time to type each message.

    Can Polk take legal action against this hack?

    Well he *did* sink low enough to shotgun out some PMs to a large audience and immediately went into his self-promoting narcissistic behavior.

    This is tricky -- with luck (!) Polk should have an uptick in legitimate new users coming very soon! :) This attack puts the forum's viability at risk whether dealt with or not. Just kind of distressing/disheartening.
