$2000? If they are in good shape, you should run, don't walk, run to that store and buy them!
That is about half what I paid!
Their bass is one of their best features, it is powerful and tight, but nimble and quick. I wouldn't call it especially extended, the specs say it reaches to 38Hz, I'd say that seems about right. But it is especially well controlled. The sense of timing and rhythm is wonderful!
They're not really difficult to drive, but they will really shine if you have a good amp. They seem to especially like good SS amps. I was driving them with a NAD C352 (80WPC), and they sounded good, but when I upgraded to a Rotel RB-1070 (130WPC) the bass really improved.
I just found your previous post, you were looking at a pair of 703's is that right?
I'm afraid I don't know about that model. These are model 804s. I don't really know if $2000 is a good price for that model.
