    WAF factors have been taken care of, new Polk Lsi speakers are now on order from Sounddistibutors.com[​IMG]
    Should have them in about 2 weeks. These folks were great, Eric was a huge help!
    Anybody interested in a complete set of Polk speakers. Check out my site to see what is going to be on the Auction Block real soon.
    I'm so fired up I could PUKE[​IMG]
    LIFE is GOOD!!

    What's this: positive reinforcement? Are you equating Frank's wife to one of Pavlov's dogs? Ring a bell and get budget approval for that projector?

    Thinks: "Duh - if I let him have this new hyper-expensive gadget he wants, that does exactly the same job as the old one expect it's bigger, louder, harder to use and way more expensive, I might get more chocolates..."

    Says: "OK dear."

    I would hope there's more to the relationship than that...

    Both of you will not be dissapointed with the Polk LSi. I have the LSi-9 and they are a true bargain. I recently auditioned some Revels and B&W speakers in a system setup much more expensive than mine.

    It definitely would take a great bargain on a pair of B&W N804 to even consider replacing the Polks. You will have the LSi for a long, long time IMO.

    They do take a while to break in, so be patient.
    Enjoy!

    itai,
    I told her this would be the last upgrade for a long time, basically I lied!:b
    Actually just talking to her about the reasons for the upgrade and showing her the various reviews on these speakers helped a gerat deal. In fact last night she told me that we need to pick up some acoustic panels to improve the HT acoustics. Her commnet was "If WE are going to spend that kind of money on speakers then the acoustic panels need to be in place when the speakers get here."
    DanaA,
    I agree that she deserves an little something....possibly a Front Projection System [​IMG] (Just Kidding!)

    Your thread title is priceless Frank. Sounds like you popped the question, which I suppose in a sense you did.

    Gratz! I'm sure you both will be uber happy when the new speakers show up, they are so far above the rest of the Polk line it's just amazing!
