Excellent Start into Quality Audio

Polk Audio RTi8 Floorstanding Loudspeaker (single)
Polk Audio RTi8 Floorstanding Loudspeaker (single)

Pros: I got these for an extremely low price, Packaging and shipping was eggcellent. Thank You NewEgg!!! These are a great starting point into the world of quality audio. The Polk brand has been relevant in the industry for many years. These Towers do put out a lot of sound given the smaller driver. I attribute that to the cabinet and port design. These are bi-ampable if you have the option and will handle good amounts of power but sound pretty darn good with my lower end 5.1 reciever. Highs are great and Lows are punchy and get lower than I would have guessed before before purchase. Mids are average but with the right tweaking and on a good AVR these will really shine. Bottom line, for the Price, these are Great sounding speakers for music, movies and Games. I picked up two more for the rear surrounds in my great room. They fill the massive volume (+6,000 cu.ft.) of room with great sound. Now I need to Find a Sub to hit low and hard for a room that size. Matched this with a CSi5 center.

Cons: Larger size..but its a Tower and to be expected. Grill is a bit flimsy but serves its purpose. The RTi line has been phase out. Not a con but the feet/mount they sit on add some width. I personally like the design of the peg/cone foot. Gives it a good sturdy base

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend these to anyone that wants to take a step or two up in the right direction from the pre-packaged or boxed mediocrity you find at any chain store. Sure you can find ok or good equipment but will pay a premium and choices are limited. Start doing some research on the forums.
