I'm new to the world of audio and had for years admired a set up out together by a (much richer) friend of mine. As I searched the Internet trying to put together what I should buy polk stood out as a good choice very high build quality thorough r&d behind the technology and affordable pricing thanks to offshore manufacturing
Before I continue let me mention I live in India where most audio products are about 1.8 to 2.0 times the amazon or best buy price
So for my set up right now I have the RTi A3 powered by a Denon 1713 pretty much using it for music and movies go my 2011 MacBook Pro. Am happy with the set up especially the bass from the speakers very very good. It is in my bedroom which is about 15(w)x15(l)x10(h). Just finished watching Todd mcfarlanes spawn on DVD with the system (the original show from HBO) and it was awesome.
My next purchase in mind is the CSi A6. Was contemplating a subwoofer but my neighbor downstairs is a nice old lady and I don't want to cause much of a ruckus.
Couple of things
The setup I have now ran me about 1,000 USD in India (shouldn't have been more than 700 with some haggling I know but you can't argue with high import tariffs) so with that level of price appreciation in mind is the CSiA6 a good choice or should I look into the wharfedale diamond 10 CM center channel speaker I've read good things about both brands haven't auditioned either center channel yet wanted to hear what you guys had to say. Wharfedale is about 75 USD cheaper than the polks.
Also given that the website (polk audio) says the range of power for the rtia3 is 20 to 100 watts with the denon 1713 putting out 80 watts a channel at 8 ohms should be sufficient right? I'm not going to risk clipping or blowing the speakers?
Thanks for the inputs !!
