Good, not great

Harry Zweier, Amazon

  • Summary: These sound ok but I was spoiled by older Infinity speakers I had that were much heavier with larger woofers. I think they suffice in a small room if you're not looking for a lot of low end and they are nice and clear but I wouldn't exactly call them full range speakers. Overall, good for the price but look elsewhere if you want strong full range speakers for a home theatre or for full-throated rock music.

Great looks; Great sound!

  • Summary: Upgraded from the Monitor line to RTi & am having a blast. These A3s are front wides, & they put out clean audible sound in music, tv dialogue & movies. The cherry finish on all the speakers is simply stunning imho. Imagine these would work well as surrounds too, but I'm using A5s for that! Found my pair well below retail as open box item & came looking brand new, box never having been opened. What a steal!!

Great speakers

  • Summary: Right now I would rate these a 3.5 but would buy them again. These are still new to me and maybe they are not all the way broken in. Compared to my last speakers these have more highs and mid range. All the different sounds seem separate like the drums, cymbals, guitars, etc... My last speakers didn't have the highs or mid range so the sounds were blended and muddy. These are not at all.
  • Pros: Have decent bass, great mid range and highs. Have a wide sound stage.
  • Cons: Tweeter sounds scratchy and blown when really close to it. Need a little power to hear them properly.

  • Summary: We replace an old set of Infinity Bookshelf speakers with the Polk Audio RTi A3 speakers for the back of the room. What a remarkable difference in the sound quality. We are enjoying the improvement in bass and clarity in the higher sound range. These speakers have a great look and feel as well, giving our room a great look. We have the Polk Audio RTi A7 floor standing speakers for the front of the room and the RTi A3 speakers for the back the room.
  • Pros: Great look and even better sound

Polk Audio RTi A3

JB3, Crutchfield
15 November 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for some Bookshelf speakers to replace a pair of Boston Acoustics CR75s. After going to a big chain store to try to audition some speakers I was thoroughly disappointed with the sound quality for the price point I wanted to spend. So after doing some research, looking at many of the reviews I decided to order the Polk RTi3s. I'm very happy with them. For the money, I think you would be hard-pressed to find a better sounding bookshelf speaker.
  • Pros: Natural sound with balanced and depth to the good tight bass response for a bookshelf speaker. Overall very Good sound.
  • Cons: None of significance.
