UPDATED REVIEW 03/08/2012
This review is from: Polk Audio RTI A9-Cherry High Performance Floorstanding Loudspeaker Single
Good investment, Great for home theater, Great for music, Easy to drive, Very attractive, When driven properly has thundering bass, Articulate, Crisp, Detailed
A little harsh, or bright during break in.
If anyone tells you these speakers don't do music well, then maybe their expectations are worth $100,000.00
I drive my A9's with an Emotiva XPA-2, 300wpc. I can crank these things til I can't stand it, no distortion.
As they break in, these speakers really deliver the quality audio I hoped they would. Mine are towed in just past the listening point, almost 9' apart and just over 2' from the wall.
During movies, if I take my sub out and set the 9's to full, LFE can be felt in the floor and in the chest, they hold no candle to my Epik Empire but they can punch out the bass.
For music, I use them for 2ch listening only, no other speakers and no sub. The detail in the 9's are incredible. If you watch, it looks and sounds like the vocals are coming from the center channel. If I close my eyes, the detail provides an illusion of 5 speakers playing at once, the sound actually places the instruments right in front of and to the sides of you.
Yeah, I'm pretty happy with these 9's.
