I currently have no set-up at all. I decided for Christmas this year I was going to treat myself to a decent set-up for music. I want to be able to plug up my video for movies, but just as an after thought...music is the main purpose for this. I decided I wanted polk speakers based on reviews I have read and numerous friends that have owned polk for years. I see all these sales going on right now and seems I am looking at a good time. I am considering the RTi8, RTi 10, and Monitor 60 or 70. I have read the RTi serious is much better than the monitor, but there is a substatial price difference too. For music, how much difference will I see? Also, I have a small sub I could hook up, but I don't have anything else yet. I want to decide on speakers and then decide how to power them. I am really only going to want to spend 300 or so on the power, but I don't mind buying used and I won't need 5.1 or anything since I am concerned mainly with music so I am thinking 300 should be enough to get enough power for the speakers. Can anyone give me some suggestions about which speakers might be best for music and will the RTi's sound so much better to make up the difference in price?
