Picked up a pair of RT800i on CL today for next to nothing. What a trip down memory lane, as the original RT800 was the first speaker I ever paid retail (well, close to retail) for, which at the time was a pretty good chunk of change for me working at Home Depot loading trucks.
I forgot how nice a speaker they were, well are. Tons of bottom end - using them straight 2ch for HT, no sub, might ad a period correct Polk to match them down the road, but for now, Patricia Barber, Mark Knopfler - holy crap they sound good. I must have some nodes loading up, because the bass is shocking - but it's still articulate, not boomy so I may just leave them alone.
I am always amazed at how much fun you can have in this hobby, without spending a mortgage payment.
