For a while now I've been trying to figure out how to step up the audio quality of my setup. I have a Polk RM6700 system with PSW404. The 404 is enough bass for me but I am ready for some more definition in the mids and highs. (I use nice audio monitors for computer speakers so I'm starting to get snobby)
My room is currently 13x13x8 with an open floorplan.
I see that most people here like floorstanding speakers, but I really don't quite grasp the necessity. Isn't that what the sub/satellite combination was meant to solve? I kind of like small speakers over monster floorstanders... but I want the best quality for my money. Maybe I just haven't experienced the right home theatre setup to make me understand ;)
I'm thinking of buying from polkdirect or other ebay source. I am currently eyeing the RTi A5's / CSi 4.. but I am wondering if maybe 4 FXi4 speakers might be more in line with my needs? My amp is a Onkyo 606 so I need to keep it efficient as possible. (dont need massive loudness, particularly)
Anyone want to argue one way or another? Thanks...
