I saw you post this in a thread yesterday, but the price had already gone back up. Checked Slickdeals last night and it was back so I ordered 2 703s and went with the 706c instead of the 704c for $389 and now it is back to full price. I’m sure I will be happy with them.

Thanks

They are really weird when it comes to showing the sale price. You need to check slick deals or rakutan and see if you can hit the sale price URL. If you want them put them in the cart before navigating away.

I’m really considering the 4x 703’s & a 704. How do they compare to ML motion lx16/15’s?

Polk has them for more but probably not a bad price.

Have not been able to find the cherry 704's anywhere. You may be stuck spending a bit more for the 706c.

What does everyone think about the 705’s vs 703’s at the sale prices I’m tempted to just do the floorstanders instead of bookshelf’s.

The 705's are very good. You will get more low end out of them and some say they are a bit better than even the 707. Could easily use without a sub for music

I have a pair of 705's in cherry and they are beautiful. Every bit as nice as my Salk Song Towers.

I have 5 subs in this room so I’m not super worried about the low end. More about the mids and highs. Would the cost be worth almost double the 703’s?

With 5 subs you have no issues on the low end that is for sure

The 703 and 705 have the same mid/tweeter so those will sound very similar. When you get to the mids reacting with the midbass that you might hear a difference. For mostly HT I'd get the 703's but if you are more into music then would go with the 705's. Difficult decision. Both will be good tho

Yeah I was leaning towards the 703’s for that reason. You think the 704’s will match well with the 703’s or would you spend the extra 150 ish for the 706...may have to measure to make sure the larger center will fit.

The 703s are 30lbs each so you might have to invest almost that much in heavy high quality stands anyway.

Seems like the towers make a lot of sense.

How does the sound compare between the two?

They are big so yes measure. If you want cherry on mains and center I think the only choice will be the 706c. The 706 is bigger and has 6.5" woofers so goes a bit lower. Shape of cabinet is different also.

These are super tempting, I wonder how long this sale will last. Returns will probably a bit pricey shipping them back. That has me a little hesitant.

I'm in Oregon. Would be a bit of a drive. I'm not ready to pull the trigger anyways they'll probably be gone by then.

I could live happily with either pair, but since I already have a custom Selah center speaker that matches timbre with the Salk's I use the Song Towers. The Polks have a very nice bass presentation, and may dig just a bit lower in the bottom octave. The difference is in the tweeters. I'd have to find some way to tone down the Polk tweeter just a tad, possibly with a couple layers of speaker cloth in front of the tweeters. They are a bit brighter than the OW2 tweets in the Song Towers. They aren't all that different.

Well that made it easy. 704’s in midnight mahogany it is. Man that 706 is a monster center! Way too big for my space.
