Hi, OP here,
I visited several locations where I could "listen" to different floor standing pairs. After letting my ears guide me and my son pointing out that these will be the last mains his OLD man would be buying, I coughed up the extra bucks and went with the RTi A7s.
I have to admit they sound spectacular to me in my environment. I know it is a 'preference' and very subjective but I am happy with my decision (even if it was $380 over budget). They actually blend in well with my old Optimus stuff (center and sub) and with my Boston surrounds.
Thank you all for your input. There were some great suggestions here. I just raised a very persuasive son. :-)
