There are a few people in the Polk thread that own the A9's and they love them. For a person on a tight budget the RTi12's are the way to go. Other than the looks they are on par with the A9's and very hard to beat at the price they go for on Polk ebay. The LSi15's on Polk ebay are $850 per pair. Whatever you choose I hope you find something you like without having to spend an arm and a leg. smile.gif
PS: Like you, I used to own a pair of Monitor 70's. The LSi15's are a world apart. The RTi's would be a leap up too. Not just some louder 70's.
i was really wondering about the rti12 i was hoping they where not just louder m70's I will check more into them so rti12"s conpared to a9"S are like m70"s to tsi 500

The 75t replaced the 70's like the A9's replaced the RTi12's.
