  • Thanks all. I'm wondering if it's worth attempting to get the center to stick out more than one inch out of the shelf? On the bottom it's actually two inches due to the angle of the foam. Hesitant a bit because the top is reflective and otherwise bo…

  • I've tried the recommended angles 30 degrees 20 degrees. I found this made the sound stage very thin. The best results with the 705's for me is to have them toed in at about 5 degrees and 1-2 feet from the wall. This was the aha moment for me and ev…
  • Sorry to dig up an old thread but which speaker stands are those?
  • I've heard the ML in Magnolia and the 705's definately have more bass. Did not spend enough time to form a real opinion on them. But I'm extremely happy with my Polk 705's they are balanced. I think to get the most out of them you might need some am…
  • My experience so far has been fantastic with LsiM 705s. Where I went wrong is trying to toe them in 30 degrees. After a bunch of tests I settled on 5 degrees which solved my sound stage issues. Due to room setup I can’t have equal distance between s…
  • Great deal I love mine. For me it never went off sale since a few weeks ago. There's another thread with other discounts like the 706c for $499 etc. My wife hates the cherry and I got a mouthful about it. lol

  • For what it's worth this sale gave us the ability to do a major upgrade on our home theater this year. Until recently we had a 12 year old receiver and some tiny satellites. The LSiM series are the best sounding speakers I've heard and even next to …

  • Looks like the planets aligned and I found a pair of used FXI A4’s in White for super cheap. Guess I won’t have buyers remorse if I dont like them
  • The only question is if Polk is somehow feeding Adorama some B stock with less than ideal manufacturing. I can't say I have noticed any issues with mine but I didn't exactly tear them down to look either.

  • There are a bunch of sales going on now at Adorama. You can mix and match: Polk Audio LSiM707 Floor Standing Speaker (Mt. Vernon Cherry) $799.99 Polk Audio LSiM707 Floor Standing Speaker (Midnight Mahogany) $799.99 Polk Audio LSiM706c Center Ch…
  • Thanks all I think I'm leaning towards some Fxi 4's on a pair of speaker stands so I could play with placement. They are cheap enough to experiment with and dump if I don't like them.

  • Do folks usually listen with the speaker grill off? or is that just for picture taking? I notice a lot of those type of shots go up.
  • Going to weigh in here a bit. I own an OLED and have demoed a handful of QLED and high end LEDs. While the QLED can hit the black levels of an OLED in some scenes. It just doesn’t compare overall. You have occasional residual light spill from the di…
