Great speaker, the sound quality and cabinet finish are ...

Josh Price, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • 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.

Balanced

dev1, Amazon

  • 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.

Fantastic

A. Gornick, Amazon

  • 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.

Polk Rtia5

David, Crutchfield
1 January 2014
  • Summary: These speakers are physically beautiful, in the cherrywood. Their sound is smooth and coherent. The only complaint I had was that I wanted them to sound way better than my old Polk Rti4 bookshelf speakers, and they only sound a little better(in the bass).
  • Pros: Physically beautiful and excellent smooth sound.
  • Cons: none

RTiA5 review

Joe, Crutchfield
1 January 2014
  • Summary: My system consists of a Denon X-4000 receiver, Polk RTiA5's up front, Polk RTiA1's for surrounds, Polk 660 pro sub & a def tech CS8040HD center (Polk CSiA4 was too big for tv stand cabinet). The A5's absolutely shine in multi channel use.
