I am a true newbie audiophile about to purchase my first "higher end" surround system and have a question with regard to the RTi12's.
In our new home I have a media room that is 22x15 (lxw). I went to a number of stores and listened to numerous systems and decided to go with Polk. In fact, the listening room was almost the same dimensions as my media room.
The system I am going with is:
RC85i Surround (in wall)
RCi80i (in ceiling) Rear Center
Denon AVR 3805
The folks at the audio store felt I did not need a separate amp to drive the RTi12's. Most posts on forums visited suggest differently, that the RTi12's need at least 200w per channel to sound their best.
Any thoughts (in laymenís terms), would be greatly appreciated.
