    Default Help from Germany

    Hello

    I?m a germany Polk owner :)

    I have in front the Rti 12 Center is the Csi 6 and rear the Rti 8. My amp is the Yamaha RX-A 3010.

    Now im thinking about to change the Polks against the Yamah NS 777 for the front, the Ns 555 for the rear and the NS C 444.
    Does anyone know it this would be a step back or forward? All the Hifi Stores here in Berlin doesnt have the Yammis. So I have to orde them and make the competition. But maybe know someone a little about it.

    For sure I know that its in the ear of the beholder but also want ur meanings.

    Thx a lot and merry x-mas and a happy new year

    Greetings from Berlin

    Just based off price alone, I'd assume it'd be a major step backwards. I haven't heard the Yamaha's so take that with a grain of salt. Why not save the money on new speakers and invest in some real power to feed to your fronts? That would garner better results than new speakers would IMO.

    Kind of. Get a 2-3 channel amp and feed the fronts what they want. You'll hook the amp up to your receiver through the pre-outs and run each speaker solely off one channel of the amp. That would leave the RTi8's (and CSi5 if you go 2 channel) running off the receiver, reducing the strain on your receiver. That would would in turn make those speakers sound a little bit better.

    The speakers themselves can only do so much alone. The rest has to come from the gear that pushes them. Your speakers are definitely not the weak point IMO.

    Whole different sound when you put some power to them.

    ^ This. Once you get a separate power amp on them, you're going to fall in love all over again.
