    Landshark,

    I think that Rti system would do you for a while! If I had the extra cash...I'd probably upgrade my HT to RTI-A9s, etc. Get myself a Pioneer Elite SC-07 or the newer equivalent, and maybe some Parasound amps or Carver, and be done with HT.

    I would then experiment with the RTI-A9s and an HT bybass...pick up an Adcom 750 pre-amp and upgrad the Front Parasound amp to a Halo 21 (also ass. with Parasound). And see what that did for 2 channel.

    The A9s are actually the most 'musical' of the Rtis as well as being the biggest and bad A$$ of the series--reaching down to 30hz with 3 X 7" woofer cones and a huge box...they out-weigh the M70s by almost 20 pounds!

    Sorry I didn't check back here Land..

    Yeah...getting a great sub and a power amp would automatically make almost any system sound better. For example...I bought a used Adcom GFA 555 and hooked my M70s up to it through a Denon AVR 2807...INSTANT difference...all of a sudden....more bass, more detail, more imaging than the speaks with the Denon alone...

    Also I need to make a correction below, I meant to say Dynaudio Speakers....Dynaco does amps mostly!

    If you heard some decent towers with a good power amp behind them, even your Onkyo might be OK as the pre/pro....check out Parasound, Rotel, Nad, Cambridge Audio, Carver, Adcom amps, etc. when you make your listening journey!

    Even with a 5000 dollar budget you're better off buying a used power amp and perhaps upgrading the speaks... Polk Rti-A9s are formidable towers when powered by a good external amp! I think you would like those.

  3. So basically what you're saying is if I use my system primarily for HT, If I added say an SVS sub to it that would be my biggest improvement? Thanks!

    Hey LandShark,

    I really think that Polk Rti-A9s are a wonderful HT speaker to use as R/L....they're much larger than the M70s...and can belt out BASS when powered with a nice amp. I'd get the large center and I do like the new Pioneer Elite ICE-amps quite a bit. But a new Onkyo 3000 or higher or older 876 or 906 would also do the job.

    But some people like the NEW Def Tech slim-line MYTHOS towers which have a powered sub built into each tower and metal dome tweeters. You can HEAR those at any MAGNOLIA Best Buy. That's where I would GO to here some higher end speaks...some are now also carrying the Polk Rti-line, I think.
    Also listen to some of the DefTech Powercubes (subs).


    Also, track down mantis (Dan) on this site...he installs HT for a living and has a Pioneer SC-07 I think! And has either gotten the Mythos towers or is going to. He's a good source and has heard a ton of stuff.

    Dynacos are also good HT towers!! Do a google search
