Summary: The Polk RTi A1 is an outstanding speaker which delivers clear uncolored sound and is perfect for a medium sized room in apartment living. It is also perfect for classical music and there is no need for a sub woofer to expand the bass.
Pros: Good clean sound. Very nice construction and it looks good in a living room setting
Summary: I have had these speakers for over a year in a few smaller rooms, such as a bedroom and dorm. Let me say, for smaller rooms, these speakers are fantastic. Not only is the sound good, but the cherry veneer I have on my looks great.
Pros: Good bright sound
Bi-wire / Bi-amp design with solid binding posts
Great sound for your money
Cons: Lacks bass extension; easily fixed with addition of sub
Summary: I have 7.1 surround with RTi A speakers and purchased these RTi A1's for front height speakers. Now it is nice to have 7.1.2 surround for Dolby Atmos with timber matched speakers. These will only get better when they are broken in. Great for movies & Music too.
Pros: Great sound & a good value. Glad I'm using them in my Front room & Bedroom systems.
Cons: Wish I could comfortably afford the Polk LSi M series for both rooms. These RTi A's make me curious.
I was not disappointed. Sound quality is excellent

Summary: I've never written a review, but compelled to write one about the Polkaudio RTiA1's. Having read the positive reviews, I decided to make the purchase. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Sound quality is excellent.
These are the first speakers I've owned that sound better the louder they get

Summary: I've had polk speakers for 20+ years. I bought these to listen to music and home theater. These are the first speakers I've owned that sound better the louder they get. Paired with my subwoofer, I can't imagine a better sound for the price plus they look sharp.
Summary: Not fair to compare Sony SS B3000 with these sweet RTI A1's, I know, but I did anyway. The Sony's are fine speakers, but they can't hold a candle to the Polks. I have a Polk center speaker and a Polk sub, and a Denon 1507 to push them.
