I'm in the market to upgrade from my Polk monitor 70, cs2, and rti bookshelf rears. I would keep my onkyo 809. I'd like to start by upgrading my rw12d to an svs model (hopefully pb13). If I did that what would be a good match speaker wise? I was kind of thinking rti equivelants all the way around. What brands should I look into. I need some ideas of what to go listen for. Budget being under $2000ish for left/right and I'd match the center then finally the rears later on. I don't have room specs because we are still looking at houses. Also, best places to buy? Thanks.

Polk RTi A9's are great choice. I have them and love them. If you are willing to spend up to $2k then I'd seriously look at the Aperion Versus Grand towers. I also demoed the Martin Logan Motion 40, B&W 683 and DefTech BP-8040 and each of them had their strong points, but the ML's sounded best overall to me. Aperion would be my first choice though.

HD-DVD: 55 / Blu-ray: 83
newest: Brotherhood of the Wolf / The Raid 2, Book of Life
AVR: Marantz SR6006
F/C/R: Polk RTi A9's / CSi A6 / Speakercraft AIMWIDE 3 / Sub: SVS PB12-NSD
