Audio noob here. I currently own an Onkyo HTIB that I purchased about 8 years ago. It's time for an upgrade.

I ordered a VSX-1021-K from Newegg today. Fry's has RTI 8s on sale for $319 a pair. So my question is this. Will the receiver I ordered drive the RTI 8s respectably?

Second, how would the RTI 8 be as a center channel? Just curious on that one.

Thanks in advance for any advice you might have.

1 yes it should have plenty of power

2. yes it would work as center if you can accommodate it space wise. Polk csi3 or csi5 is the matching center channel

Thanks for the response. Would the RTI 8 make a better (more powerful, better sounding) center speaker than the CSI3 or 5? I read somewhere on here that the CSI3 is a bit underwhelming when paired with the RTI 8s, is that true?

Thanks again.

Identical front 3 speakers would be ideal so if you can fit it and place it correctly its worth it.

I have a csi3 and to me it has plenty of performance but i have rti4's upfront. I have found it far from underwhelming

A csi5 would be the matching center
