    Default Different between Rti8 and Rtia5

    I know the Rtia5 is the lastest model, how about the sound quality?
    Is it same as the Rti8?
    I have a yamaha HTR6090, is it powerful enough to work with these speakers?
    Does Rti10 is much better than Rtia5, because I try both Rtia5 and Rtia7
    and like the Rtia7 better but the price different is too much.
    (I know Fry's is selling the these Rti8 or 10 in good price but I live in Canada
    and take almost 3 hours to get there. Does anybody know do they still have any stock in Renton, WA and the free sub with $499 or more?)

    I was in the same boat. I audited both A5 and A7, and A7 sounds better. However, I was able to get RTi8 really cheap, so I got the RTi8 for the price of 1 A7 speaker. I can't justify the price for the A7s when comparing to the RTi8, and with the money saved, I can get a sub to make up the lack of bass for the RTi8.

    Your receiver is enough to drive the RTia5.

    I am thinking the same thing. I got the RTi8 on Boxing day sale. But I found out the RTi8 is too bright that I feel a bit tired after hearing for some time. At Future Shop, I compare the RTi8 with RTiA5. It seems the RTiA5 is not as bright, however, if you look at the spec, they are the same. It seems the only difference is the cabinet design.
