    Default 2ch audio

    This year I recently Bought a HT system. My signature shows the equipment I bought. Only thing is I like is fairly loud and in 2CH mode for music I find the 12's a bit bright. I was thinking with the Denon I have to make my below setup for movies only and take the Rotel Amp for Zone 2 for music on my denon(haven't taken a hard look at this for the denon, seems to do able though), so my question is I have around 2G's for a set of fronts for music, I live in newfoundland Canada and I have no wear to go to demo high end speakers, So I usually have to go on-line and hear reviews and so on(better bad hey). I was think the LSI 15's(not limited to these) for fonts in 2ch, I hear alot of good things about them for music and my Rotel should power them with no problems! any one have a similar setup or advice(besides selling my speakers I have bought)

    Thanks

    I think that sounds like a fine idea. I have heard RTi12's in HT and think they are fantastic, but really, in 2-channel, the brightness hurts my ears. LSi15's on your zone 2 powered by your Rotel amp may be a fine way to go and you should be able to do it for quite a bit less than your budget if you go used.

    The LSi9's also sound very good if you are looking for a monitor size speaker. The new RTiA series is getting good musical reviews. There was a writeup in this month's Stereophile. Check out the review in the magazine. Good luck!

    Don't the RTiA's have similar voicing to the RTi's?

    Jason, as far as I know there is not a replacement. Those speakers were designed for an HT application and for what they were designed for, they do well.

    You might want to try adding a resistor in line with the positive terminal to help tame the tweeter down.
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.
