I need help, but first, here's my setup:
POLK RTi6 (fronts - on stands)
POLK CSi A6 (center)
POLK F/Xi5 (surrounds - bipole mode, on rear wall)
POLK PSW505 (3) (subwoofers - been building up, intend to run 4)
Onkyo TX-SR876 (receiver)
Now for your advice and opinions (thanks for already helping, Jim).
As you can tell, I've been building my system with RTi stuff, and I really like them. Even though most of it is comprised of the previous generation, it's still the same series, and it matches up.
I've wanted to go with towers for a while now, and I'm about to be able to do so. I had originally looked at the
RTi A7s and A5s, as well as the previous gen RTi10s and 8s. However, I'm very much on a budget, and I've recently seen the Monitor 70s refurbished with Polk warranty for only $350 shipped!!!
Monitor 70s or RTi A5s? Highest model from Monitor series vs. lowest model in RTiA series? Would it be a mistake to mix those two series'? Is the timbre really that different between the two series'? Would Audyssey correct it? Should I wait, save, and get the RTi A5s, or go ahead and nab that Monitor 70 deal??? Sorry...
