Item - PKLSIM703B2 exceeded the warehouse quantity limit. Not sure what that's about. Says in stock below
Probably their way of killing the deal. If your desperate order 2 singles, screenshot the price for 2 and call them Monday. Wouldn't have shipped yet anyway.

Ugh, just received a 7.0 LSiM set yesterday at a higher price point. I ordered two 707's, four 703's and a 706c. Going to give them a call on Monday to try and get a price adjustment.

Also, I received the 707's in Mt. Vernon Cherry instead of Midnight Mahogany. I called this morning and got a $100 refund on each speaker because I told them I was fine keeping them instead of returning them. Wish I had known about this sale when I spoke to them.

Finally, the speakers sound great. I upgraded from a full set of Polk RTiA series of speakers : RTiA9's, FXiA6's, and CSiA6. The LSiM speakers are warmer and more musical. I enjoy listening to a lot of surround music and I always found the RTiA speakers a bit bright and fatiguing for music but totally fine for film and television. With the LSiM series, now I feel like I have the best of both worlds. I am using an Emotiva XPA3 Gen3 to power the front three speakers, a Marantz SR7012 to power the rear speakers and four height speakers (Klipsch RP 500SA), and a SVS SB-2000 for LFE duty.
Is the marantz sr7012 not good enough to power all speakers by itself. Instead of having to use pre amp output to separate amplifiers to power the front speakers (recommended I know)?

Just tried this. Won't ship for 7-10 business days, so I have plenty of time to cancel if they won't change to the lesser price. Here's hoping.

Which is better - Klipsch RP-280FA Reference Premiere Atmos or Polk LSiM707 Floorstanding Speakers?

Klipsch is available $799 (pair) while Polk will be $1098 ( pair)
That's is my question too. According to my search, people say Klipsch for HT and Polk for 2 channel...but IMO, Klipsch can do both if you add a sub.

Own a pair of RT2000i's that are almost 20 years old. Great speakers, have really loved them. I've been eyeballing these for almost a year now, but always been too pricey to justify the jump.

Just pulled the trigger on a pair of the 707s. Asking everyone here to please pray that my wife doesn't kill me.

If you don't hear from me after next week, send help.

The Marantz is sufficient to handle the full load of speakers. But, I've found that the sound is lacking, more subdued. With an external amp, the front three speakers really come to life.

The Klipsch would be better at rock.... maybe. The Polk is just going to sound better on all other music with a dedicated mid range, ring radiator tweeter, and better compartmentalization (less coloring)

I never understood how the main amp syncs with the secondary amps.

So as u raise volume on marantz does it automatically raise volume on ur emotiva amps?

What about power? Do u have to individually turn on/off the 4 combined amps ?

As I understand it, you need a receiver that has amp pre-outs. Your main receiver serves as the processor for the separate amp sending the signal to it and it works off the main processor's signals.

Yes, as you turn the volume up on your receiver, it will change the output signal (pre-amp) to your external amp. Just like changing the volume slider on a pc connected to an external receiver/powered speakers does.

Yes you would need to manually turn off the power on the external amp as well. There are surge protector outlets that have an energy saving feature that disables other outlets if the main device plugged in turns off and re-enables if the main turns back on(draws power).

Ok I mostly understood everything.

So do you keep your emotiva amps on full volume ? And solely adjust volume through marantz

Anyone using the Center 706 speaker, what kind of power would be needed. Currently using yamaha rx-v685.I am concerned it might be underpowered with this speaker not being too efficient. Using 2 Polk S20's with a Polk PSW 650 Sub.
Rcvr specs=power amplifier Output Details
90 Watt - 8 Ohm - 20 - 20000 Hz - THD 0.06% - 2 channels
150 Watt - 4 Ohm - at 1 kHz - THD 0.9% - 2 channels
150 Watt - 8 Ohm - at 1 kHz - THD 10% - 1 channels

Most receivers and amps have a low voltage output that connects a cable from amp to recover or projector or whatever you want that triggers the device when you turn on your receiver. Pretty much any high end receiver will come with one. And pretty much all amps do.

Hi, how loudly do you listen. If you listen at reference levels (seriously loud, many people would be unable to enjoy for more than 10minutes) than yes you would in fact need more power. However there is no way you are currently doing that with the speakers and amp you are asking about. If you listen at anything from quiet to fairly darn loud (room is shaking) I think you will be fine. The speaker is really fairly reasonably efficient at 87-88 db, when playing in a medium room, factoring listening distance from the speaker and room gain, just that speaker alone by itself is capable of 100 db peaks with around 20-30 watts.
The lowest bass notes will be handled by the mains and or your sub, so I really would not worry at all. Upgrade the amp later, maybe...

You have plenty of power output for two S20s and a 706. The 706 by itself will put out more bass than your two S20s can. I've tested x2 707s, x2 703s, 706 & x2 JBL590s with an old Pioneer VSX-1016TXV 110W/ch receiver and had no problems listening at 85db.
