I have a pair of the 725's. I have had them a little over a year now. I like them VERY much. They took a long time to break in, but, once they were broken in, they really started to sing.
I am using a Denon 4800 to power them and it does not seem to have any trouble.
While the bass response is fairly good for this type of speaker, I really bought it for the tweeter and mid-range. I am a fan of the three-way design. At this point in time, I am experimenting with them crossed over at 80Hz in the Denon and my sub is handling all of the deep bass. I think I actually prefer this setup in my room as when I had them running full with the sub, they were just a tad muddy (with some possible phase cancelation around 40Hz~60Hz).
Placement is important, get them off the walls and you will get a very clean, open sound. A very neutral sounding speaking. Amazing soundstage for a speaker of this price range.
I think the whole Chorus series represents a great value for the money. I have the LCR 700 as a center channel and the SR700 for the surrounds. I can recommend the LCR 700, however, if the space supports it, I would go for another speaker in the series for the surrounds. Don't get me wrong, the SR 700 are nice, but, a 706, 707 or LCR 700 would be nicer.
While I also liked the B&W 603's, I thought these were a better value.
