    Question Monitor 70 vs rt1000

    Good morning all
    I have to pick between two systems I built over the years as they will become one and one will go up for sale.

    Option a:
    Monitor 70
    Csi5

    Option b:
    Rt1000
    Cs400i

    Let me know your thoughts! It's tough to pick between the two as they are very different.
    Thanks

    + 1 for option A
    PS: I'm still kinda new in the hobby, but my wallet has been around the block a couple of times.

    Option A, but possibly move the 70's to the back as surrounds and buy matching fronts for your center, such as RTi8's.

    I'd pick A if you are looking for diversity - a 50/50 split between music and movies. Or more accurately I'd pick the best center speaker for movies and pair it with the M70s for music listening.
