Hi Everyone--I'm brand new to the forum but have been a Polk fan for the last 10 years or so,
Looking for some opinions for a stereo system.
Right now I have a stereo setup in my living room with the main TV. Surround has been ruled out--wife, odd shaped living room, etc., but I still like nice stereo sound for watching Blu-Rays and HD TV.
What I am running now is an H/K AVR147 with Polk Monitor 30s on stands next to the TV.
I'd like to upgrade, but I'd heard that RTiA1s can be a bit bright to many listeners. My AVR147 also seems very bright to my ears, so I'm concerned that if I go with RTiA1s, the entire setup may be overly bright.
I'm also no stranger to a soldering iron, so I was thinking I might also upgrade the caps in the crossover of the Monitor 30s if the RTiA1s were unlikely to sound good with my entry level receiver. Maybe for some Dayton or Solen Poly Caps.
Also, I'm definitely in the bookshelf market. The receiver isn't really powerful enough to power towers or LSi bookshelves. Also, dollars are a bit of an issue (once again the wife doesn't really see the need for an upgrade), so I thought sticking with bookshelves might be a nice way to break into the RTi line of speakers.
