Reviews and Problems with Polk Audio LSiM703 Series
Showing 1-5 of 5
clear sound, amazing bass
2 June 2013
Summary: Excellent is for the money/value (27% off). I had this speaker for about one month. very clear sound. Amazing bass for a bookshelf, high and mid frequency might need an EQ to catch up. Could be bright at beginning, at least compared to my Yamaha speaker, I have to shy my ear for some high pitch (hopefully can get better later on). The tweeter sounds not as smoothy as I like for some recordings I listened, could be the music recording?
Summary: I won't give these 5 stars because the condition of the cabinets weren't perfect. The cabinets had small imperfections but were on the bottom of the cabinet where they will not be seen. The sound quality is simply superb. The construction is also superb with a beautiful finish. I've owned many speakers over the years and these are up there with the higher end speakers costing quite a bit more. Couple these with a good subwoofer and you'll be in audio heaven.
Summary: I have these matched with a 704 center channel and tl350s for surrounds. These guys sound incredible, look incredible, are incredible. Once you get past how heavy they are you notice the elegant, polished, wooden shell (an inch thick I believe, knock on them) that oozes quality. As noted earlier, the weight on these guys will require a sturdy stand. With a big of BluTack (stuff is amazing) the speakers will not being falling over. The sheer weight keeps it anchored.
Summary: I really don't know what Mr. Phil Blanchard is hearing, or not, from the new lsim 703's, but these are great bookshelf speakers for $1,500!!! Great bass extension, great midrange, and great high's!! I power these babies with a Yamaha Rx-v457 amp at the 8ohm setting and in the 2 channel pure direct stereo mode and they sound fantastic!!! Another great addition to Polk Audio's lineup!!
Summary: bought this set of speakers through crutchfield,what a disapointment!these speakers sounded like tiny boombox speakers.finally threw these out the backdoor,poured gasoline on them and set them ablaze!don't buy these jokers, they suck!
