    If you have two spare conductors in that flex tubing, you should double-up the "+" and "-" runs. The wire seems like a relatively small gauge compared to your jumpers and that adjustment could make a noticeable improvement.

    ^^ finally done!

    Looks great. Likely just not seeing this right, but is your center not angled at all? If its not I'd suggest doing that. If it is then my apologies.

    Good observation - I ran three sets of those wires (Monoprice 12ga, 4-conductor cable) for the L+C+R about five years ago when I transformed the room. The center is biwired from the dedicated Emo XPA-100 amp but I never decided whether to biwire the L+R speakers also, or double-up on the conductors for an equivalent 9ga wire. So they are currently wired as you noticed. Maybe that'll be my next evening project...

    Thanks for the compliments - and nothing to apologize for, Enders! The picture was a bit dark so it was hard to see. The center is angled up on Auralex pads (link), on top of the Salamander amp stand...

    Geoff: side note - I'm not sure if you were the Geoff that I met back in May 2012 at a local Seattle-area GTG (see this thread). If so, small world! If not, maybe another local GTG could be planned since the weather outside is turning to crap... :/

    Thanks for the invite! I'll probably take you up on that - and the offer is mutual It's always a pleasure to meet other enthusiasts, talk shop, and share ideas about our systems and setups to make them even better. That's how I met my friend Kris about five years ago, via AVS...

    I'll send you a PM about meshing schedules - the rest of this month is busy but maybe there's a Nov weekend that might work for all three of us?

    "Casa de Geoff" - I like it! I've occasionally referred to my system as the "Springbrook Cinema and Alehouse" since I live in that area of Renton... :)

    I'm trying to continue to ignore that those 707's are priced that low and I don't need them. I want the 706's at a ridiculously low price.

    ^^ This. After my initial listening session during break-in and watching "Yesterday" last weekend in the media room, it's tempting to buy another pair for my dedicated two-channel system to replace my Wharfedale EM99s..

    Here’s a pic of the LSiM707’s next to my RTi70’s.

    WOW - I had RTi70s until mid-2010, then I upgraded those to the RTiA7s. Your 707s will be a helluva upgrade...

    worst thing about this sale....i bought the 707's and 706c, but i have nothing to run them with (avr or amp) so they are beautiful paperweights...probably for a few more months. Just hope they arent damaged somehow on the inside cause i have no way to tell haha
  • DaveHoDaveHo Posts: 2,455
    Pick-up something cheap on Craigslist to at least run them at low volume. There have been enough QC issues that I wouldn't feel comfortable waiting months.

    Honestly if you're in a decent sized market you can probably find an older non-hdmi beast of a receiver for a $100 or less.

    This for instance has a pretty stout power supply. Run optical out of your TV and you'll actually get pretty darn good SQ especially considering the $$$:
