My wife wanted a radio for the kitchen as I don't have multiroom audio there like the masterbed.I tried to tell her to wait untill we move as I'm doing whole house audio and video in the new house.She wanted music out there now,so with out running wires and buying a pair of In wall or In ceiling,We went to CC as they had these radios for sale.Colored stupid thing's and she was in her glory.I was bored with the wife upgrade and desided to check out the new Polk's,I had nothing better to do.They have this room off there listening room and TV area labeled Home theater room.Its a stand alone system, no switchers and no other speaker but the ones in the system.
The LSI70's where sitting there,funny no new center but a cs400i,new rears and the PSW450 sub running off a HK I think a avr7000 was the model number or something like that.
You know what???they didn't sound bad.The salesman said they have been on the floor for awhile and been playing alot as everybody likes them.
I sat and listened to some jazz peice and was shocked that I was actually getting a descent demo at CC...how funny.I honestly didn't think they sounded bad at all,They are an Improvement over the last 2 models.They are the warmest of the 3.I felt they blended better then ever.I can see other 800 series fans loving them.Nice job Polk,needed upgrade.They look good 2.The new cabnet is nice.the speakers look exactly the same except the tweeter.
The sound is much better then any 800 demo i ever had.If you are looking for a cheap pair of floor standing's under a grand,they aren't a bad place to start.
Now what about an upgrade 55 series????I bet if the rti70's are that much better, then they must scream.They need to get them out,if they are going to replace them.I would buy a pair for a porch closed in or a garage setup off the main system.Not bad at all.
