5 out of 5 eggsWhat happened to Newegg?

This review is from: Polk Audio RTI A5-Black High Performance Floorstanding Loudspeaker Single

Pros: Great sounding speakers, definitely need a sub though.

Cons: none really, considering the price.

Other Thoughts: Newegg used to be the place for electronics. Bought from AZ for 275! The A7s on here for $799? $499 on AZ! Sorry Newegg, you have become an overpriced dinosaur, and with AZ's great prime service, I see no need to ever use newegg again. Goodbye old friend.

This review is from: Polk Audio RTI A5-Black High Performance Floorstanding Loudspeaker Single

Pros: i upgraded from a klypsch...kypsch......? kli p sch . aound system and for the life of me im not sure which i like more... after i let this break in ive noticed a considerable diffrence in quality with theese as to be expected. i previously had an onkyo with klipsch 7.1 setup .. new egg had some great dels so now im at a yamaha polk setup. theres goods and bads to both i orginally had the rti 9's but realized i liked theese better with a nice psw12 .. to me seems like the clarity and mids are better with this setup and deverted the bass on the sub rather than the speakers. discount priced theese just right

Cons: nothing major.. wish we could combine the best of klipsch with the best of polk

Other Thoughts: overall im plesed with my purchase.. the price of it all to me made sense to stick with polk with the buy one get second 40% off .. between this and klipsch its almost a toss up. if ur unsure go to ur local home audio dept and listen to make a decision for urself.. i got tired of pulling my hair out personally

5 out of 5 eggsRe: For some tastes, almost perfect

This review is from: Polk Audio RTI A5-Black High Performance Floorstanding Loudspeaker Single

Pros: Updating my previous review, the RTi series apparently has a standard return policy. All my other speakers came from Newegg as bulk items. I didn't notice that the A5s can be returned. O f course this is a pain so try to listen to them somewhere if possible. These sound fantastic to me. They will appeal to those who want all their music to sound live.

Cons: As noted in my previous review.

Other Thoughts: These speakers seem to keep getting better. I've listened to the A5s for hundreds of hours. Some recordings I haven't listened to in years now mesmerize me. Not really sure about break in time. Initially the lack of general fullness with these compared to the Monitor 70s made me skeptical of the RTi A5s. But after playing the same radio station through both and running up and down the stairs to compare the A5s won. I realized how much of their own sound the Monitors were adding. I'll probably use the 70s for surrounds and get another pair of A5s for the Onkyo in the near future.

5 out of 5 eggsFor some tastes, nearly perfect

This review is from: Polk Audio RTI A5-Black High Performance Floorstanding Loudspeaker Single

Pros: You don't hear these speakers. All you hear with the A5s is every note, sound, effect and nuance, in crystal clear clarity and detail, that is in the recording. The ring of a lightly tapped triangle drifting off in a classical crescendo, the resonance of acoustic strings, piercing screams and soulful moans of electric guitars, angry and playful keys, percussive kicks and assaults, the gentle breeze or gale force of flutes, horns and bagpipes, the enchantment of wood and glass xylophones, spacey or dance till you drop electronica, whatever. Send these speakers any sounds and they will deliver them exactly as they were recorded.
Whether blasting the neighborhood or at waiting room volume you hear everything clearly.

The A5s sounded great driven by the 85 watt Onkyo (see below) so they don't need a lot of power to be appreciated.

Cons: None for my tastes. But others will prefer a different sound. By design the A5s don't have the speaker enhanced fullness of the Monitor 70s (which I also have). The mids and highs are clearer and more pronounced in the A5s which might not appeal to some. If unsure whether they're for you try to find somewhere to listen. Unfortunately BB says they only sell the A5s online. In NJ you can hear them at Electronics Expo. Remember as a bulk item they can't be returned.

Other Thoughts: Main setup: Front RTi A5s connected by 12 AWG copper wire to a Sunfire TGR-3 receiver measured at 238 wpc stereo, 165 wpc in 5.1, Yamaha SW 315 subwoofer, Polk CS2 center and Polk Monitor 50 surrounds

Other: Polk Monitor 70s similarly connected to an excellent 1994 85 wpc Onkyo Integra ASV-810PRO amp.

For those that prefer speakers which deliver a clean, natural sound the RTi A5s are phenomenal. They are designed to deliver mids and highs with a subwoofer to handle the lows. The RTi A5s sound best placed on stands about 15" high resulting in very discernible bass. I set them to large and turn off the sub when listening to light percussion classical, acoustic, or recordings with an upright bass. They have a very good soundstage with shiny highs but not overly bright. Close your eyes while listening to a good audio source and you are virtually 10 feet from the performers. Delivering even subtle sounds they're excellent fronts in ht.
