Wood at Vinyl prices - The first thing you'll notice about the RTi Series is their luxurious real wood finishes: beautiful light Maple, inviting Cherry, and serious Black Oak. What will really surprise you, though, is that you won't pay a premium for these distinctive real wood finishes. Our in-house computer controlled woodworking factory, we can offer these rich finishes at prices you'd normally pay for vinyl.
After the look, there's the sound. Just like the legendary RT Series before them, the RTi Series fit the bill whether you're looking for excellent home theater speakers or truly exceptional and musical speakers (because we all know that home theater speakers really have to do a lot more than just provide good movie sound). These RTi Series speakers have the dynamic range and powerful bass response you want for extraordinary home theater sound, and the clarity, spacious imaging and smooth response necessary to make everything from the latest techno-grunge rock, to your favorite recording of "Don Giovanni" sound simply fantastic.

E-Gear Magazine, Spring 2000
"...the Polk's are clearly a winner. At this price, they're a steal, the best system I've heard to date in this price range."
The Perfect Vision, May/June 2001
"Let me jump right to the chase-this Polk system is fun...Polk nails the fundamentals...this Polk sextet [RT600i, CS400i, f/x500i and PSW650] allows just about anyone to own and enjoy an exceptionally good home-theater speaker system."
TNT-Audio, September 2001
"Polk has created a loudspeaker that is at once clean and natural sounding, detailed without being overbearing, and very user-friendly... Not only is the RT600i an excellent sounding speaker, it is practical choice. It is practical not only because it is moderately-priced, it is also practical because it is modestly-sized. With less than one square foot of base area per speaker, they are easy to place in almost any listening area. The RT600i loudspeakers fill a room with rich sound that belies their low price."
