    Very nice!! I still think the 11 series in the RTA line was the best. I had the TL's at one point. Played very well at low to moderate volumes but cranking them up always popped drivers...

    The RTA-11t are better than the LS-90? Please elaborate.

    Don't get me wrong I loved the LS 90's and never had a chance to A-B them but the RTA's seem to have better clearer mids and maybe just a tad more highs even with the sl 2000's. That is just my opinion and I do have one of the worst living rooms for acoustics. Bass is nonexistent in my living room so I cannot compare. and I do like the looks of the RTA better

    Nice Kevin,

    It seems like the RTA 11's / 15's, and the Rti 12's are almost as hard to find as the SDA's. Hell they may be harded to find then the SDA's

    I wonder if the A9's will be like that some day.
