Sorry for all the threads lately. Doing a bit of speaker shopping and it's very hard to demo... Anybody running a pair of these? My initial impression is that, well, Chinese made for one, and Polk for two. It's not a loudspeaker my admittedly snobbish tastes would be drawn to. However, by all accounts, these should sound great. I am looking for an upgrade to my Energy 22 Reference Connoisseur loudspeakers which, I'm quickly learning, are truly quite excellent sounding. They go very deep in the bass, have a nicely integrated sound, and the high end is detailed without sounding harsh. I find them a little scooped out sounding in the midrange, and even though they go low you can really hear the port's tuning when you get down to the bottom of their extension. On the bright side they are fairly responsive to positioning. Anyway, the Polk 707s caught my eye. They measure down to 25Hz, have downward firing ports for room-friendliness, and they look pretty nice. I'm wondering how they'd stack up against the 22s though. Anyone here running these? Anyone here compared these to other speakers? I'm currently debating whether I should continuing saving up for something really beyond the level of the 22s, or pull the trigger on something now. Like, could these even hold a candle to something like Salk SoundScape 8s that go for 3x the price. Opinions are appreciated!
