I recently came in contact with a pair of RT35i's(victim of a family member's home theater upgrade). I also recently bought a Denon AVR-1803 to use with my Polk RM-6600/PSW 350 system. My room is pretty small(about 13x12)
Having said that, I'm considering using the 35's up front, moving the RM Satellites to the back for EX/ES encoded movies, and then purchasing either the CSI30/CSI40 for the main center.
1. Would this be a significant upgrade? Let me define "significant." Is it worth shelling out the cash it would cost to do this? Upwards of $300 U.S. I can afford it, but $300+ is $300+.
2. Would it be better to just leave my RM system as it is and then in a few years when I get a bigger living space just do a major home theater overhaul?
3. When comparing the CSI30 vs the CSI40 what are the differences-- and is the price difference justified?
4. This is a strange question... but... the box for these polks and the manual clearly are labeled RT35i. Yet, the little Polk sticker on the back off them simply says RT35. They were purchased at a local authorized dealer with a very good reputation, so I don't think anything intentionally shady happened, but is there a way I can tell for sure which brand of 35 I have?
Thanks for any and all help, as always!
