In any case i know the upgrade path is going to be with the LSims if i do stay with the Polks.
I do have both, the 703s and the 705s and the 705s blend better with my two Rythmik Audio F12SEs subwoofers crossed at 60Hz. Even at 80Hz the 705s sound more balanced than the 703s. Don't get me wrong, the 703s are amazing too but I feel the 705s more balanced and with more body, especially for music.

I have both, I like the 705 but for music I think the 703 with my F12 is the best. I have the 705 paired with an lv12r crossed over at 40 since you have dual subs, you can achieve the lower base stereo effect.

Posted at the same time. Funny that we think the exact opposite. Probably do to the room acoustics and the height of our 703 I have 36" stands so they are at the height a 707 would be.

Then i will just have to flip a coin between the two!!

Seriously though, interesting perspective from both of you. Much appreciated.

Unless i run into one of those too good to pass up deals , the A9s have been scratched off my list.

There is something to be said for either that has nothing to do with how they perform.
The 705s have seductive looks going for it while the 703s have an attractive price!

As much as i love movies and have a fair amount of blurays, not to mention access to streamed content, i listen to a lot of music pretty much all the time.
Jazz, Latin Jazz, Reggae, Salsa, Classical , Soukouss, Bossa Nova...

The A7s are just not doing it for me unless of course the recorded material is exceptional.

Also thinking of upgrading the Onkyo NR818 to either a Pioneer Elite or a Denon X4000 ( most likely).
Put a good power amp on the A7's. Imo they do sound much better with with external amplification. There is no need for A9's, the A7 is just as capable when crossed in the 60-80hz range. If you are running no subs then yes the A9's with a good amp will be superior. The best thing you can do is measure the system with rew and dial it in for a smooth response via room treatments, different placement options, and/or EQ.

You are correct. They also are highly efficient, so they can be driven easily by unpretentious receivers, and they are voice matched for lifelike surround sound environments.

Yes, it is fine. The HK 1610 is rated 85 watts per channel, two channels driven and the RTi8 is not that power hungry as the RTi10 or the RTi12.

WOW Carlos, this look very very nice. I'm pretty sure it sounds Amazing too

Looks like the OP has good subwoofers (Pair of Rythmik Audio LV12R) so now is up to him chose between the 703s and the 705s

Thanks Enrico!

Yeah, with the addition of the pair of subs + the MiniDSP taking care of the splitting the signal to have a true stereo system....this combo sounds fantastic!

You are correct, the OP should have great results with those babies already at his home. Positive thing about the 703's is they are way less expensive than the 705's. Heck, that should be a really nice upgrade plan if the OP is Ok with that. I mean, pull the trigger on the 703's now, then down the road he might be able to score a pair of 705's and then he should be able to move the 703's to surround duty and/or use them as wide speakers.

See, you can't go wrong with these speakers, you can always find a way to use them in a different configuration!

Could the Yamaha 371 do a solid job powering my Polk Rti8s? I also plan on buying either RTI6s or FXI5s for rears and a csi5 or csi a6 center.
Please let me know! Thanks!

It will but the HK 1610 has a little bit more power than the 371 so I would recommend you to go with the HK 1610 instead. Like I mentioned before the RTi8s aren't power hungry as the RTi10s or the RTi12s.

You'll probably be okay. I'm running a couple Yammies with smaller Polks and they sound good... a 365 driving Rti6's in the family room here at home, and a 371 driving M60's at our vacation home. The Rti8's only have three drivers, and multiple drivers is generally what determines how much power is needed. If and when you move up to larger Rti's you'll likely want a larger amp.

Polk RtiA9's, Denon 3312ci & Emo XPA-5 amp, CsiA6, RtiA7 surrounds, FxiA6 rears, twin Klipsch Synergy Sub-12's, DSW660 & Lsi9's upstairs

Okay, so I finally bought all the speakers for my 7 channel system.
Polk RTI8s, Polk CSI A6, Polk FXI5 and Rt300 for rears. I also bought a Denon 1911 receiver and will pick up a bix h100 sub soon and will add a 2nd sub at a later time.

My question is, what speaker wire should i buy? Anything else I may need?
I have found cheap speaker wire that I am guessing is sufficient on amazon: mediabridge 16 gauge 100ft for 15$ or RCA 16 gauge 100 foot for 10$. The different gauges are just slightly different thicknesses right? Also, If I want banana plugs, are mono price good enough?
Any idea if soundsoul or monoprice plugs are different/better? I could also buy monoprice wire but it is 10$ more for the same exact thing as far as i understand.

Please let me know your thoughts/opinions/advice!

I use Monoprice 12 gauge for all my speakers but 14 or even 16 should be enough for most HT applications. Also check for Sewell banana plugs on Amazon.

Awesome thanks. I think ill go with 16 gauge monoprice wires. Checked out Sewell but they are 30$. Are they worth it? Might just get monoprice banana plugs for less. Also, Cable matters sells a set of 7 pairs for only $13 in either open or closed screw. What is better? any advice on these?

Thanks again

Monoprice Banana plugs are fine too.

Those are the ones I used to use before I bought some from Emotiva.

Thanks again
The Sewell Deadbolt banana plugs are definitely worth the money. They are extremely well made solid brass. They are also a little shorter (sticking out of the AVR) than the Monoprice if that is a deciding factor for you.

I wouldn't go 16 gauge. I would recommend 14 guage or 12 guage speaker wire CL2 from monoprice. I would not recommend the monoprice banana plugs at all. They are really cheaply made, and bend easily.
