    So I'm a little surprised these are still here, but certainly understand the apprehension if you did not know the inside story of how the seller got them. Lot's of views (now 5 by verb)!

    They are so poorly set up. It is no wonder he is moving them along, as they never had a chance.

    Wouldn't the side wall sound barriers effectively render the SDA signal DOA?

    Do we have any forum member reviews on these speakers yet? I tried searching, but didn’t come up with much.

    Member @mpitogo also bought a pair. He hasn’t been visiting (not logged in anyway) for a while. I think he posted some commentary in [This Thread], but it’s fairly long, so it will be necessary to wade through it a bit.
    Alea jacta est!
  • dromundsdromunds Posts: 9,177
    That’s my remembrance as well about mpitogo.

    4500 for the pair!
    Great deal, I'll ask around for you.

    Music Direct has had an 'Open Box' pair for quite some time now. They are usually willing to negotiate, I'm sure this pair could be had for less than advertised.

    My guess is more pairs of the L800s would sell if the retailers were allowed to knock even ten percent off the MSRP occasionally. It's a psychological sales thing. People don't want to feel like a sucker for paying full sticker price on something expensive. :)

    On that note, Crutchfield and many other retailers have the L600 on sale for $500 off (-$250 off each) for a pair.

    https://www.crutchfield.com/p_107L600WN/Polk-Audio-Legend-L600-Brown-Walnut.html?tp=185

    I wonder if sales were slow, inventory collecting dust prompted the discount? I really don't need an answer. Still, the L600 & L400 would be a welcome combo for many but at the $5300 retail price there's tons of competition.
