Have been a proud owner of a polk audio system for 15 years. Am now finding one of my front LS50 floor standing speakers is starting to distort during movies (explosions etc). Seems to be fine playing music?? I have swapped the speaker to the other side to make sure it isn't my amp or cables playing up.. and it seems to be that speaker.
Looking at the polk site the closest looking speaker configuration to the LS50's seems like the Rtia5. I don't really want to buy a sub at this stage as I found the bass I was achieving has been satisfactory through my fronts on the LS50's. Im assuming this would be the same with the Rtia5, but would be willing to go to the Rtia7's if the differences was negligable.
My system is as follows:
Amp : Denon 1909/789
Fronts : Polk Audio LS50
Centre : Polk Audio CS350
Rears : M3II
Music : 20%, Movies 80%
I may also replace my rears with A1's or A3's. I have had them fall off stands a number of times... - they still work fine...but while Im replacing may get them as well. Are the A3's worth the extra money??
I have no intention of replacing the centre. It was the top of the range centre when I bought it and is still going strong.
Seems like you guys get your hifi gear ALOT cheaper than here in Australia. They're almost double the price! Is it possible to import myself?
I look forward to your responses
Thanks in advance
