A Living/Growing System
My Currant System Includes;
Onkyo TX NR 808, RTI-A9s mains,CSI-A6 center, Monitor 70 II Surrounds, OWM 5 Rears and PSW 505 sub. 49in.480hz.LED Monitor, Samsung Blu-ray/CD/DVD & Internet. All fed with digital audio signal by a "Hopper W/Sling". Audio signal via Toslink audio link from Dish net. w/various Dolby surround configs. to my Onkyo 7.2, SOUNDS Great (Thank you Polk!) And a very COMFORTABLE centerpiece system for my living room- I DO however need to power my A9s with something beyond my receivers 135w (a living/growing syst.) . -SO FAR SO GOOD!
for the posted pictures, I removed the grilles. All said-I do like their looks without them, but they are usually on. I was really surprised with the monitor-TCL 480Hz LED was a KICKING choice. Had it OVER a year W/no problems-
I started my system with the Monitor 70s as mains. Although they are a little big for it-They make great surrounds. Next Move will be to move the OWM5s(to the left of M70,by the tissues) from rear surround position to High/Wide in the front position of the sound stage, probably replaced by FXiA6s. I do need to find something else for surrounds eventually-Speakers seem to be taking over my living room.
My 505 has worked well-had it a few years. The A9s (by the numbers) are supposed to have a deeper/lower freq.response than even this sub-We will see. I'm still breaking in the A9s, and haven't (yet) ran them through an additional amp. I would like to note that it (505) came in un noticeably damaged from New Egg, so be careful when buying from them. The sub kicks tho-

Here's a trick; (2) 1.5TB Hard drives into the Hopper. How many Full HD movies w/surround can YOU fit on One of these things? (MY last count was 300+) I can run them into my Onkyo for mass storage of audio as well.
Receiver; Onkyo TX NR 808
