I've been watching for a long time and have not seen any type of sale or discount on these. Are they that good, or are they willing to lose polk customers and share to competite brands? There are a ton of good deals available on premium speakers from Energy, JBL, B&W, Paradigm and others. I have 9 polk speakers between two systems, and have been happy with them. The RTIa line however has been around a very long time and MSRP seems a bit uncompetitive.
