    Default CS2 vs CSI a6 center speakers

    I just recently purchased RTi a9s, (what a speaker!) I've had the CS2 center for about 3 years now. I was thinking about upgrading to the CSi a6. Do you guys think that I will hear and notice a big difference? Any help/info greatly appreciated.


    Current HT:
    Samsung 46" LCD
    Denon-3806 AVR biamped to the A9's
    Pioneer Elite DVD player
    Panasonic Blue-ray Player
    Sony VCR
    Polk Audio RTi A9
    Polk Audio CS2 center
    Advent Jade BR2 surronds
    Velodyne ct120-took the 12" velodyne sub-woofer out, put in a 12" Diamondaudio Macdaddy sub that I had laying around. What a difference.

    I have the CS2 and love it! But if I upgraded to the RTi9's(Which I hope to) I would match them with the CSi a6. Either way, congrats.

    Get the CSiA6!! It's the proper timbre match to the A9's, and will blend with them MUCH better than the CS2 will.

    Looks like a great HT setup you're putting together there. Welcome to Club Polk!:)

    Welcome to the Club!

    The CsiA6 will be a perfect match for your A9s, I used a A6 center with
    my A5 speakers.

    Back when I had my Rti 10's I moved from a CS2 to a CSi5 and it was a noticeable improvement. However, in the meantime, you may find that it helps to increase the decibel level on the CS2. Doesn't cost anything to try it.
