I need some feedback from any owners of Polk's RTi-A5, RTi-A3 and CSi-A4 on performance and sound quality...especially in regards to music listening. I will probably be listening to music 60% of the time...and moves and gaming will take up the other 40%. I know that testing the speakers are key...but sadly no dealers have the RTi-A3/5 locally...so I MUST buy on faith. After researching for about a month, I will be most likely buying the following speaker setups:
Master Bedroom(The dimensions of the room are 14ft x 16ft with 9ft ceilings):
2 x RTi-A5
1 Denon AVR-591(5 x 120 watts)
(I will be using a pre-existing Klipsch sub-12...it's in perfect condition...I couldn't bearing getting rid of it for little or no resale value.)
Living Room(THe dimensions of the room are 18ft x 20 ft with 13 ft ceilings) :
2 x RTi-A3
1 x CSi-A4
1 x PSW-125
(As far as the AVR pushing the RTi-A3's and CSi-A4 in the living room...I will be using a 4 year old Yamaha RX-V661 5.1. It is rated at 90watts per channel.)
I should also mention that I will have to keep the towers in the Bedroom due to having a child. Her mother seems to thing that a book-shelf speaker would be less awful falling over if she were to knock them down...but I might be able to convince her Mom that another set of RTi-A5's are not that much worse. Also the CSi-A6 is much too big for the consoles that I have both 42in. Panasonic plasmas on. But is it that much better?
How does this set up sound? Am I missing anything? Opinions on the RTi-A3/5 series? Thanks!
