Summary: This is a very attractive design. These are also not rear ported which means they can be wall mounted. Both good things for many buyers. They are very bulky and when wall mounted they stick out very far. Several smaller speakers produce more sound and in my opinion an overall better sound. I ended up going with Definitive Technology over these. The DTs don't look as nice but they are half the size and sound noticeably better.
Summary: Installed speakers to onkyo TX-NR 609 receiver.Had high hopes!!!I was totally aware of break in period for speakers before turning up volumes to high levels. After about 5 minutes of listening to speakers, I noticed one of them rattling and sounding awefull.It was apparent that one of the RTI A3's was blown/defective. Cant really rate them because never listened to them both operational. Am in the process of returning them for a replacement pair.
Summary: I just compared these my Klipsch B3's using a Harmon Kardon reciever and a music hall turntable and here is what I found: Compared to the Klipsch, the high's are much more pronounced, especially with cymbals and brush sounds. They seem tinny and somewhat harsh to my ears vs. the Klipsch. The midrange, especially lower midrange was also lacking. Bass is boomier than the Klipsch. Bottom line- more high-end definition, but somewhat harsh and tinny.
Summary: The product came in good time and was perfect and I would have giving it a perfect score if it was as cheep as in Amazon in the USA. Why is it double the price to buy from the U.K. I know they don't ship some goods from the USA to Ireland but if amazon Uk could come closer to USA in price for the same products you would double your sales in Ireland. In saying all that I am happy with your customer service and will be back for more products if I get good value.
