    Default Rti a7s

    Questions? I have a Yamaha Rxv 471 receiver, 85watts per channel. Thinking of purchasing Polk rti a7's would that be enough power for the rtia7's.. Or would the rti a5's be a better choice. also how do the rti a7's and the rti a5's compare to each other? Currently have Polk monitor 60's front, csi10 center, fxi a4's rear and 2 Polk psw110's. any suggestion. Thanks.

    Kinda borderline. The 7's can sure use some more power but you'll be ok for now. My other concern I see is that small center speaker. The 7's will drown it out so think about getting a larger center like a CS5.

    Down the line when you go shopping for a better receiver, make sure you get one with preouts to be able to add an amp down the road should that upgrade bug bite you again.

    With either the A7's or A5's, you'll want to get the CSi A6 center, so include that in your plans. As for the AVR, yeah you'll need a better one.

    I would get a better receiver with preouts first then get a separate amp so that you can hear what your current speakers are truly capable of first.
