    Default TSI500 with CSI A6

    Hi Guys,

    I've got front TSI500 (L+R) but because of the price difference here in Aus its cheaper for me to get the CSI A6 then the CS20 front speaker. Just wanting to know peoples thoughts on pairing different series together especially the TSI and CSI - Im using an onkyo NR609 and will be using the speakers for 50% games, 40% movies and 10% TV

    Thanks

    You'll be fine. There will a slight difference in timbre but nothing you should worry about. At some point, you can move the TSi500s to the back as surrounds and opt for some RTi's for your fronts.

    thanks mate, I've heard the onkyo nr609 is too under powered to handle the RTI's - have you heard this?

    thanks

    You heard correct. There are better options. Which RTi's are you looking at ?

    Your gonna need more power than the 609 to make the a7's or a9's worth the investment. I'm sure you have read it here again and again. Look for a reciever with preouts and run an amp with them. Or maybe a Pioneer SC series for the a7's.
