these are available in black as well... black seems to sell out much faster and often on backorder

prices are per speaker as they all shipped individually

Adorama had a similar deal for a bundle set of these LSiM speakers in several different combinations. If memory serves, iconian posted that one as well. Same prices as this deal; 50% off.

Here is how my experience is going so far.

I ordered two 707, one 706c, and two 703 from Adorama. (Couldn't help it and knew I'd only be in the dog house temporarily Smilie) The speakers arrived UPS in two different shipments from UPS about 10 days later.

The 707 and 706c are absolutely mindblowing. Speakers are so subjective I have to mentione this is only my opinion. That being said, even just hooked up to my vsx-32 the sound and imaging is astounding at 1k per speaker. Outstanding deal.

You may be wondering... 'What about the bookshelf 703 that you ordered?' I'm sure they are also mindblowing... Unfortunately, one of them arrived with a woofer that was completely destroyed and loose in the speaker cabinet. Also, upon closer inspection, the 706c had a 1 inch X 0.75 inch dent in the bottom. For speakers of this caliber, I expect perfection so I returned those two and am now waiting for replacements to be sent.

My mistake was not inspecting the boxes more carefully upon delivery. The UPS guy who delivered the destroyed 703 knew it and jammed out at first opportunity with a, 'well, runnin' late; gotta go!' and whoosh he was gone in a puff of brown sweaty uniform mess. (Yes, I'm bitter and no longer a fan of UPS)

I tell you this to make you aware and to let you know two things:

1. These speakers are terrifyingly amazing. We're talking a whole other level of quality workmanship and performance/dollar. I mean jaw-dropping HOLY *$&U. If you are on the fence - this is a no brainer, in my opinion. Pull the trigger. You'll be happy.

2. Inspect the packages and open them!!!! DO NOT let the delivery guy leave and I don't care if it takes you 15 minutes. They have to wait until you sign. I learned my lesson.

I hope this helps you.

Repped, iconian. Thx! (Actually SD wouldn't let me give you rep for this since I haven't given any others out since I repped you for the last deal on these speakers haha... Stupid servers...)

This matches the previous deal at 50% off. Bought LSIM 707 towers for my living room, and paired it with an SVS PB1000. Excellent sound with a Denon xw4200 receiver. I like these speakers, they sound much better than the Monitor 70 I had before.

Is there such a thing as a decent atmos system under $1000? I don't know where to begin.

Do I need a pair right away or is one fine? What if I can only spend $1K a year?

Got the same set. The 706c and 703's are incredible and I've only had 2 hours of listening. Just hooked them up to my Yamaha Aventage RX-A3020 tonight after being too busy the last 10 days. I have them placed closer to me than the Energy RC-LCR/RC-50's they are temporarily replacing and I can't believe the sound. I believe the 703's, which are very well reviewed in their own right, may sound better than my old towers; can't believe they're going to be shifted to my surrounds (they are worthy fronts and would be wonderful in a stereo or 2.1 setup). I haven't even been able to set it up as a surround system to experience the full potential, and have not heard the 707's. I will wait for a buddy who can help with set up b/c there is no way I'll move the 707's alone on wood floors. The risk of damage to either or both is just too high to risk it; they are beasts at over 4 feet tall and 100 lbs each.

Agreed boxes and shipping, be careful. I reported serious box damage and had the guy scan the bar code on the box; luckily the speakers were perfect. Personally, I don't blame UPS for the boxes, as they are massive and look like they came from an abandoned warehouse they were so dusty. I seriously had to spend at least 30 minutes cleaning up all the dust off my wood floors after delivery. Again, no affect on the speakers.

I was about to pull the trigger but:

KEF Blade speakers require an external amplifier capable of 350W at 4ohm

My $150 receiver only pushes ~50W...

Please can you confirm if the speakers were shipped directly from Adorama or Polk? I may pull the trigger on a pair of 707s but hesitating a little bit as UPS are careless with fragile items. I would prefer Fedex home delivery but I guess it's not an option.
