*I know theres 1000&1 topics on this already, should have put monitor70 in the title as well*
Ok damn you guys, now im hooked haha
I recently hooked up my cs20 for the center, and I can already tell the difference over my old onkyo center.
Now as far as this goes, it isn't RIGHT NOW so I'm not really looking for the best deal. Hopefully in the future if this year pans out decently.
I'm still just running the Pioneer 1020k, I KNOW I KNOW no pre-outs, but I will change it out in a year or so probably.
Ive been told the Monitor 70's are great speakers, just the older model, which I was kinda keen on getting. Then I was able to demo the tsi500 at frys and I was to say the least, blown away at the setup. Then come to find out the RTia7's are BASICALLY the same amount as the Tsi's. So Im kind of stuck in a dilemma.
If I just wanted to go good and cheap Id go with the 70II's
If I wanted to go with that matches my cs20 and newer, Id go with the tsi500's
If I wanted to go up a class I could get the RTia7's
DAMN to many choices.
The RTia9's are WAY out of my price range. And I know the tsi's are basically the same as the 70's just with a little more bass, the crossover I guess is different, and the vent hole is located in a different spot. So basically paying just for the NEW model speakers.
As far at the tsi's compared to the rtia's Im lost. I havent read as much as I should about the comparison, and I was wondering from anyone's personal experience HERE with both of them, would it be worth it for me to just get the RTIa's? I know they look a little different then the cs20 finish but I dont mind if the sound performance is as good as the price dictates.
On a side note, I know the 1020k is a little underpowered for the RTIa's and the TSI's but screw it ha Id rather have the good speakers now and then deal with the receiver later. Gives me time to break the speakers in, warm them up a little.
