    I have the RTi6s, as well as the LSi9s, and you know what, the LSi9s are much better sounding for music. The RTi6s, in comparison, sound overly bright and edgy. Maybe the folks at Polk knew what...

    I personally wouldn't leave the 3805 on. I've had the 3803 for several years now, first used as an AVR and then as a pre/pro. I turn in on/off up to 3 times a day as needed and it still works like...

    The kickstand is located at the back of the CSi5 and as such is designed for deep TVs such as tubes. I have the CSi5 and of all my Polk speakers it's my favorite. Mine's on a shelf below my plasma.

    I have the CSi5 which succeeded the LSiC as the center channel in my HT. The CSi5 cleared up all the dialog clarity issues and I doubt you can do better in that respect. Make sure you do level...

    Ideally, diffuse surrounds in a 5.1 should go on the side walls, above and slightly behind the seating area. In your case, you have to settle for the back wall option, which I believe will work...
