I have been looking at speakers for a LONG time, and finally decided to walk over to our tv department at ccity. I was almost sold on ascend acoustics cmt-340s when i got a look at the monitor 70. We had em hooked up to some mid-range onkyo which was stuggling to keep up (it was maxed at +15dB), but I could hear the potential that the polk floorstanding range could provide. I probably wouldnt have bitten on this deal, but the accomodation site showed a very attractive price for this speaker. Unfortunately I did something silly... I scrolled down too far and saw the RTi series. The second i saw the speaker I knew it was over.
Long story short, i just ordered the RTi12's, CSi5, and FXi5. I just dropped the hammer <5 minutes ago and im already getting anxious. This would be my first TRUE ht setup, so I hope my expectations are going to be fulfilled.
On a more "advanced technical" note, I currently have an onkyo txnr901 and am looking for some moderately cheap candidates for bi-amping of the r12's.
