Summary: Survived shipping with no damage. Good start. I plugged the RTI A1s in side by side with my Klipsch Heresy speakers and began A/B testing. At one point after a few minutes of listening, I went to my Onkyo to shut the Klipsch Heresys off and I realized they were already off. The big sound filling my living room was coming from these little Polk Audio RTI A1s. These speakers really have amazing projection and clarity.
Summary: This is a review of the RTI A1's, a polk PSW10 and a Marantz NR 1504 receiver all purchased to satisfy my need for a moderately priced home system for listening to music (rock, country, jazz, folk, small ensemble classical, reggae) and movies. My wife and I enjoy movies, but haven't ever had a need for earth-shaking special effects and simply wanted a much better sound experience than the built in TV speakers on our 52" HD vizio TV.
Summary: Excellent speakers and great value. These speakers have great lows and mids, and a little light on the highs, but overall crystal clear. I would highly recommend these as an entry to true audiophile quality. Cannot beat them for the price.

Summary: Replaced floor standing Polk TSi400 speakers and these sound just as nice. I was moving and could not acomodate the floor standing speakers anymore so I downsized. I was a bit worried because I really liked the TSi400s but I was pleasantly surprised. I already had a sub to catch the lows. These are deceivingly larger than I expected but still worked with my setup.
Summary: I'm very impressed with these speakers. My previous bookshelf speakers were Polk and they lasted for almost 25 years, so I knew they made a quality product. My only concern was that they wouldn't be able to provide good quality sound for the size of the room they're in. We have a large open living room/dining room/kitchen area with high ceiling and, despite the reviews I had read, I had a tough time believing they'd be powerful enough for the job.
