Fantastic speakers, but watch out for the gateway effect...

  • Summary: I recently bought an entry-level turntable, which prompted an immediate upgrade of a terrible (but affordable) HTiB to (first an Onkyo and then) a Marantz receiver with these two RTiA1s, then a subwoofer, and then a center. Then the Tv, etc. Yikes. The new setup for both music and for movies in a carpeted 15' x 15' room, is worlds better than anything I ever had before. I bought what components I could as 'open box' to save $$, and love the RTI A1s.

Excellent speakers for home theater use

Ozzie, Amazon

  • Summary: I just upgraded my 10+ year old home theater system which includes a sweet Samsung 4K TV along with the following Polk Audio speakers: TSi300 x 2, RTi A1 x 2 with a CS10 center channel speaker along with a PSW505 sub. All I can say is how much I like my new system. The Polk Audios sound great and they came lickitity quick thanks to Amazon Prime. This is a great speaker system for anyone that can appreciate good quality sound.

Perfect for Home Audio System

  • Summary: I really have no regrets with my home audio setup. I'm still surprised that not many speaker manufacturers sell AV Receivers as well. I have owned these speakers for a year now, and I've had no problems. I would recommend these speakers to others.

surprisingly good bass out of these little things

Lorelie, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had large floor speakers since from forever - the pair I had was from the 80's and they were still producing excellent sound. I tend to prefer a somewhat bass heavy sound with a clear but not shrill treble, and present mid-tones. Had to move to a much smaller place though and didn't have room for my big 3-way speakers so I took a chance on these small bottom of the line 2-way's.

A set of bookshelf speakers like no others!

John L. Alvey, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Superb casing and very pleasing to the eye, but the real deal on these speakers is that they ROCK the room, no matter how large that room is. The more power you can push to them, the better they sound and react. I do not know how they react or sound when attached to low-end amps and receivers, but I do know that, once connected to a high-end audio system, these speakers will not disappoint. The neighbors will not like you.

Good in a small space, top out fairly low

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: I have a fairly small space so if you have a small room to know that these play pretty good. I have them paired with a Onkyo TX-NR626. In general, they sound best between volume 43%-58%. Anything above that they start to sound sort of flat (nice and loud, just the sound starts to distort and flatten out, especially if you approach 70) and anything below you lose some of the smaller details in your music like fainter background vocals, etc).

First-rate Purchase

JamesC, Crutchfield
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased three sets to accompany Polk's matching center channel (CSi A4) for my 7.1 system. Recommended. I've ordered Polk's DSW PRO 550wi sub to round out the system.
  • Pros: Timbre matched, solid construction, ascetically pleasing. A bracket, screw and template is provided to make side- and/or back-wall mounting a snap.
  • Cons: None.
