Summary: Great speaker, the sound quality and cabinet finish are definite improvements over the TSI/TSx line from Polk. But be advised that the RTI line loves power and therefore don't really open up unless you supply them with at lease 120+ watts rms.
Great product line with a few Q issues but nothing to whine about.

Summary: While my RtiA3’s out the box sounded beautiful these beauties started far less then so. After a few days of muddy sound I ran my Stereophile test CD for around 72+ hours at Full Reference level.
Summary: Although we music fanatics know that speaker critiques are qualitative at best, we still try. The cherry RTiA5 is just beautiful. With the curved enclosure its quite a work of art. As for the sound, balanced is my best description. Highs, midrange and bass are just fine. Nothing exaggerated.
Summary: Speaker arrived with connector plate in back hanging out and no screws. Obviously never even inspected at the factory....makes you wonder about overall speaker quality. Sound is ok but not as good to me as most of the reviewers seem to think here. Poor Quality like ths is inexcusable.
Summary: I paired these with a BIC F-12 sub and couldn't be happier. This setup sounds amazing, shakes the walls and has fantastic clarity. I mainly went for these over the A7s as I'm mainly watching movies with these and liked having two mid-drivers.
Summary: Like the title, I was expecting more. A Polk loyalist I was somewhat disappoineted with the overall sound. These were to replace my Polk RM5000 system which consists of 2 front satelite speakers and a non-powered sub-woofer. This system is over 20 years old and is driven by the Denon AVR-X4000.
Pros: Nice cabinet and Crutchfield advisors.
Cons: Muddy sound. Requires alot of power to drive these speakers.
