After doing additional research and also having talked to a CSR at Polk, I am confident that the following speakers would work fine with my amp. That being the case, I'd like to get anyone's personal opinion and perspective on each of the following speakers. I'd like to find out what the strengths and weaknesses are of each and which might offer the best bang for the buck.
The CSR I spoke to recommended the LSIM 703. It does appear to be a good match for my amp but I am concerned about a couple of things. First, if I am going to use Bookshelf speakers I will need to do a wall mount. I won't mount speakers on stands because ultimately they are going to end up on the floor. I don't see any provisions to wall mount this model. Second, it is quite new and I cannot find very many reviews from existing users.
The next model is the RTIA 3. This Bookshelf does seem to be wall mountable. Price for a pair is great and seems to offer a similar sound to the more expensive LSIM model.
The RTIA 7 is next. Appears to be the next best tower speaker from the model 9 and again will offer sonics similar to the LSIM towers minus the price tag.
I don't want a harsh sounding speaker like you get with Klipsch. I get listening fatigue after an hour or two of listening to those. I am looking for a warm, neutral or natural sound from a speaker and one that can accurately recreate a live sound stage. No Home Theater setup either. Just two speakers and my amp, tuner and cd and tape players for this system.
What say yooze?
