    They are a steal at Audio Advisors price of $399/pr. Thats just insane given the quality/sound of that speaker. I love mine, and figure I'll have to get up into the $1500/pr zone to better them.

    Haha, I hear ya! I agree with the natural wood/cherry look. I would love for my next speakers to have a real wood look, and cherry always seems to be the best.

    wow, those are nice looking RT800i's. The old Polk's with the raised area around the drivers, the blue woofers, and the real wood veneer, look really nice.

    they are.. i love mine.. in cherry wood. can't be beat. sorry, but i've never been attracted to all black/ebony speakers.. some color of natural wood always looks best to me.

    does natural wood come in ebony?

    Maybe it's just the models I heard but the Athena's I heard sounded like complete butt!!! The one thing they did well was make the JBL Northridge speakers sound good, which is impressive considering how god aweful those sound. I'd take the RTi line over anything else in their price range right now, except maybe Energy Connessier (sp?) line.

    The problem here is that sound is subjective to the listener. What I hear and like is completely different from what someone else might like. Hell, Bose is still making speakers that people love...

    Any body know where I can buy a set of LSi15s for a good price? I was debating on getting a set of them or the LSi9s and a sub for my living/listening room. The Rtis will do fine for the HT. I want this 3rd rig to be one hell of a blast for music only with a 2-channel amp and a cd changer. Lsi7s will do also. The only place I can find these is Crutchfield, but they want the highest retail price for the LSi series. It is a toss up between the LSi speakers and a widescreen TV.

    Try ebay or audiogon.
    There is also a place in Jackson, TN that can get Polk at descent prices. I'll have to find the store later.

    Exclamation How dare you


    I currently own RTi12 and... they're WONDERFUL. For Home Theatre - I'd say even more than perfect (especially in not a big room). Even music sounds great.

    So stop posting such unfair opinions.

    nice set-up, Gary. Just curious, does the 'Z06; in your s/n mean you have a Corvette Z06 in your garage?

    Typically if you're riding a Harley, you don't give a damn about a Z06....although it's very nice.

    Tell me you beat the Trans-Am, right? Is it stock? How fast will it do the 1/4 mile? What kind of rubber are you running? How long have you had it?

    Looks real sweet.
