I recently decided to start putting together a small surround sound system in the living room. I was lucky enough to find a polkie willing to sell a a pair of Rti4's and a Csi3 to me to get me started. In cherry no less.:) I ended up getting my receiver before I got the speakers so with me not having any patience I decided to hook my M7's from the 2 channel rig until they got here. As I expected the M7's sounded great and had a TON! of bass. So I immediately started thinking the little RTi's were going to be a disappointment.
I could not believe what I was hearing. They matched or exceeded the M7's in the bass category! I couldn't believe a book shelf speaker was producing the kind of clean bass it was producing. Not to mention they sounded good every where else. Not harsh or hard to listen to at all. Very detailed and smooth.
I also didn't expect a 3 channel setup to sound so much different than a stereo setup.
Needless to say I can't wait to get the another pair of Rti4's for the rear and a good sub.
I just wanted to put together something very small and modest. Looks like this system is going to be a over achiever.:D
Just wanted to share my Rti experience with others.
