Long time reader, first time poster...
Looking for some advice from some experienced Polk listeners.
Here is my situation, As you can see in my sig, i have a stereo that at the time of purchase served it purpose for long loud nights drinkin beer with the buddies. The Vegas have served their purpose and I believe it is time for an upgrade to move towards a more complete system that will offer a sound quality more focused on movies.
I purchased my DPR 2005 in 2007 and at this time i would like to leave it in place as it costed a boatload of money and, unless you feel otherwise i feel is full capable of powering any Polk speaker system.
I have been looking at a couple options from Energy, Soundstage, Klipsch and Polk. Any quick thoughts on product line would be appreciated.
More specifically in regards to Polk, i am trying to wrap my head around the benefits of certain product lines. My 3 choices at this time are the Monitor, RTi or Lsi series or a mixture of all 3.
My goals are as follows, I need the front monitors to perform well with stereo sound, driven hard and long. They will also need to be able o support the crisp clear sound required for movies. I am aiming for a 5.1 system.
I am debating keeping my 2x 12" Vegas for bass support as they still perform well, not sure if this is the best choice in regards to sound compatibility.
Let me know your thoughts. My budget is flexible, but would like to stay within the price range of the Polk equipment. My room is 12X24 but has multiple large openings for doorways, concrete floors and exterior walls on two sides.
