Bottom Line:   
If you are reading this review and contemplating a purchase of the LCR 750's, I can wholeheartedly endorse these speakers. More so if you are primarily into home theater, the 750's along with the matching center are really dynamic and detailed. Musically, it is a matter of preference and the maturity of your ear. If this is your first foray into a mid level speaker, the "in your face" sound of the M&Ks may suit you musically. You are really talking about a sealed box designed to work with a sub and a tweeter optimized for home theater, this is not the purchase if you sit home listening to CDs each night. For the money and again, if home theater is your priority, you will be hard pressed to beat these at this price point and probably a couple price brackets above. I recommmend partnering these with the 750 center, you'll enjoy the combination. M&K is the real deal, I had a question and called them, one of their engineers picked up the phone on the first ring and chatted with me for a while, I was impressed. Each speaker has the name of the technician that inspected it on the back and M&K speakers have a transferable 10 year warranty, this really is impressive considering that these are relatively inexpensive speakers. Bottom line, highly recommend for home theater enthusiasts on a reasonable budget who can take the industrial looking boxes and plop them in the room without aesthetic restraints (wife)or have a cool wife and/or a dedicated theater room. Muisc lovers would probably want to trade off a little of the dynamic peaks on the movies for a richer enclosure that resonates a little more bass and more balance to the midrange. Also a cherry wood veneer, gold plated binding posts and fabric grill doesn't kill a professionally decorated family room in the same way as the M&Ks do. Generally, I think 5 stars is thrown around to liberally but in this case, they are an amazing value. Best of luck with you speaker purchase.

Look, I know everyone wants the stuff they own to have a high rating, and some of you will get mad at this rating, and email me and all that, but.... these things are unlistenable earbleeders for music. Sorry.

After brought home the Energy Veritas 2.2 speakers with all Energy Sub,Center,Surround I wasn't satisfied...
After brought home the Atlantic Technolgy system 350THX I still do not satisfy with the music and karaoke part. Then it comes the M&K complete system 750THX package, I am completely satisfied. Here's some points I have experienced:

Veritas 2.2 main front speakers:
- Music: 9+ points ( two channel stereo)
- Movies: 8 points
- Karaoke: 7+ points
- Price: 8 points
Veritas 2.2 is great for classical music and single vocal in two channel stereo. For movies, it is acceptable. I experience low ambience, clean, quiete, pleasing soft sound with the details dispersing evenly around the room. I think the 2.2 is suitable for older people... At normal listening range, my yamaha rx-v1 is set at -45db for this speaker setup.


Atlantic Technology system 350THX:
- Music: 8+ points
- Movies: 9+ points
- Karaoke: 7+ points
- Price: 7+ points
This system 350THx is excellent for movies only. The subwoofer is a monster, it will shake the hell out of the trees outside of your house, make sure you secure all items around your house before cranking this thing up. Atlantic Technolgy is unbeatable for home theater application, but you would have to buy a second speaker system for music and other application like karaoke. At normal listening range, my yamaha rx-v1 is ususally set up at -38db for better vocal and bring up the details.

Here it comes the M&K 750THX speaker system:
- Music: 9 points
- Movies: 9 points
- Karaoke: 9+ points
- Price: 9+ points

I strongly recommend the M&K 750THX to all of you who love to listen to music movie and sing karaoke. The 750THX is unbeatable for producing sound imaging, it is second to non! period. The price with this ability is also unbeatable! Talking about the subwoofer v-1250THX that comes with system 750, you will find it pleasing and deep, tight base. This sub will rock and please you with its price. The final word for M&K is filled with full and strong sound imaging. No brands can beat M&K with price and performance.

Bottom Line:   
These speakers are a great speaker for the price. They are outstanding for movies, and are great for music. My only complaint is that they tend to be a little aggressive on highs, but they have outstanding midbass. They image VERY well with very little setup tweaking. They have a surprising amount of bass even without a sub. I have the M&K stands, and that helps anchor the bass and give deeper response (use the spikes!). They can play very loud and handle lots of power, get a good amp! An absolute bargain for the price! Here is my system (on a budget for now...)

Sony STR-DA333ES Amp
Sony DVP-S7000 reference DVD
Audioquest granite Speaker cables
Audioquest Diamondback interconnects
Audioquest YIQ1 and VSD1 cables
Monster Stage 2 Line Conditioner
High Gloss M&K 750thx speakers/stands
High Gloss M&K V1250thx Sub

Bottom Line:   
Great speaker system although I upgraded by sub to the 350THX (I like heavy bass) and use another 750 center as my 6th channel. 95% of use is with DVDs and the speakers show great range, separation and clarity. My recommended test is the infamous T-rex debut in Jurassic Park (chapter 9). The scene has it all from whispers in the rain to roars. The speakers do beaufifully. A word of caution however. Be careful with your A/V receiver selection. I am on my second Marantz SR-8200 which initially I loved. But this otherwise excellant receiver chokes at high volumes with these speakers. The Marantz can not handle driving 4 ohm speakers. I have damaged the crossovers on the Right Center and Back 750's where the tweeter no longer responds. I am in the process of getting a separate amp for my right and left which will hopefully lessen the demands on the Marantz and prevent future difficulties. Otherwise, goodbye Marantz. I'd rather keep the M&Ks and get a new receiver than get new speakers.
