    Default Best upgrade from RTi70's

    I have RTi70's up front R50's for rear. What do you guys think would be the best upgrade for the fronts? I would go new used or refurb for $300 to $500.

    Thanks All

    $300-500 for a pair? I'd suggest to stay with RTi70, since it will be very difficult to find a pair of better speakers in that price range (without making a lateral move, of course). For $500 a pair, you can upgrade to a pair of good bookshelf speakers, but you will need good sub and proper amplification for the ones, such as Polk LSi7 or LSi9.

    Kelvin, I don't think SDA would run well on a Denon receiver, or any receiver to be exact... Just my opinion.

    RTi10's or 12's. They'll match well with your CSi5 center. Or you can forgo the speaker upgrade and add a powered amp. There are some good choices in the $400-$500 range.
