High performance floorstanding loudspeaker
Real Wood, Real High Performance
REAL WOOD, REAL HIGH PERFORMANCE
Why settle for vinyl speakers when you can have the warmth and beauty of real wood at the same price, with speakers from the RTi Series. They are wonders of industrial design: real wood, radiant with metallic highlights and racing car lines. Classic Polk performance in a design that speaks to today's high-end home decor. True performance art. Beware the competition, indeed!
We at Audiotronic are proud to be part of the Polk Audio family and we are going to kick a** with the new RTi Series!"
So said Gary McCrystal of Audiotronic South Africa upon demo-ing his first shipment of RTi Series speakers, which included this RTi10 floorstanding loudspeaker. Audiotronic deals in mid- to high-end audio, and has been a Polk Audio Dealer/Distributor since 1996. Gary likes to call our Export VP, Joe Graham, and go on and on about how impressed he is with the RTi Series.
"The XXXX people are all upset. Polk value beats them hands down. Together with the brilliant service we've always received from you guys, beware the competition!"
