    I think my previous post sums it up. Promising release dates, only to be delayed for years, dropping most all previous dealers, to be replaced by almost no dealers , simply to sell for full list price only. Imagine if you needed service on a product...

    Looks like a very interesting speaker. Whatís the difference between the 703 and 704 besides price?

    We arenít 100% sure. I believe itís the core, because we use 2 iPads and my phone in the store to control Roon and all are doing the same thing. Weíve replaced the core. No change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Aside from the dac, I don't see how you could go wrong with one of the newer Luxman Integrateds. Even my baby 505 has driven any speaker I tried without issues.

    I am looking at the 502 (not the SP) and just found a place 2 hours from me where I can get a listen. Will schedule something in the next month or 2. They have both the 502 and the SP setup so I will at least hear what I will be missing.

    Tweeter is first and foremost important to me. Any forwardness, brightness or harshness is an absolute deal breaker. Mids need to sweet and organic. Bass is great but I can give it up a little. Vocals and piano are most important to me.
