Well, you all convinced me...after getting an email from Amazon saying the ES30s would not ship until June or July (!), that sealed the deal. (My order must have prompted some inventory research by Amazon, as the speakers were not showing a 4-6 month wait time when I initially ordered.)
So I bought the ES80s from Fry's and will install later tonight. I hope they work out for our room/system -- under $300 for a pair of speakers that originally retailed for $1,100 seems lik it should be a good value.
Any advice on installing these?
As mentioned in a previous post, I have a B&K Reference 4430 3-channel amp driving my fronts currently. This amp is 200 watts/channel, but cannot be biwired. I could biwire from the 708, however, if I run the ES80s directly from there....
