Excerpts from a review of a home theater system consisting of RTi8, CSi3, RTi4 and PSW303
"...the features of the RTi-Series are not marketing gimmicks, they work -- really well..."
"...the complete set sounds very harmonic, the center and the PSW303 match perfectly to the rest of the system..."
"...one of the highlights of this set is the very good (low) distortion and the power handling..."
"...the internal bracing is very solid, so the are no problems with resonances at all..."
"...the tweeter can handle a lot of power without any distortion..."
"...the PSW303 works nearly perfect..."
