I want to replace my old floor Yamaha speakers. After lots of research, the RTi-A1 and TSi200 are top candidates. But, a bit easier on the pocketbook are the Monitor 40 or the Monitor 45B. I've found all of these within budget.
These would be front speakers for both music (CDs) and HDTV. In a 20x20 room with hard tile floors. I don't plan on adding rear speakers.
How can the A1's be better than the Tsi200's when they only have one mid/woofer?
I can't find any comparison between the Monitor 40 and Monitor 45B, they appear to have identical specs. Somewhere I read that the TSi200 is the new model of the Monitor 40. So is the TSi200 improved over the Monitor 40? Then where does the 45B fit in???
