I have PSA XS30 Cordovan Cherry and is not an exact match. A9's cherry is on the orange side and the cordovan is a bit more redish.

If they are not going to be located in a place with direct light it is close...........However, more direct light / sunlight on them and you should be able to tell the difference really easy.

Here is a quick pic for your reference (please take in consideration aperture on the lens is playing a role here - in real light conditions the match is much closer):

I originally posted this as it's own thread, but haven't received any replies, so I apologize for the double post:

side surround choice
Hello all,
I'm replacing a Polk wireless F/X surround unit that was damaged in a flood. I have $350 with which to replace it, although I can go a little higher ($400). I'd prefer to go the non-wireless route this time. I have attached a rough drawing of my family room. This issues I run into in this room are that the couch must be placed no greater than 1.5 ft from the back wall which has windows, and the left side of the room is open to the kitchen, forcing me to mount the side speakers on stands. The ceiling is 8 ft. My current setup is as follows:

FR and FL Polk Tsi400
Center Polk CS10
Sub Polk Psw 505
Marantz NR1602 receiver
JVC 61" DLP tv

Usage will be 85% movies and gaming and 15% music. I haven't been able to test any speakers, but have been looking at discussions and reviews of Polk F/XiA4 and FXiA6 as well as the Klipsch RS-42 II. I'd really appreciate input on this decision. Given my room layout, would bi/dipole speakers work best? I can place them up to 4 ft away from the primary listening position (couch). If not, do you have any other suggestions? I will be moving in three years, so this is not a long-term setup.

Also, I do hope to upgrade my speakers someday to the RTIa 7 or 9, so I would want something with future flexibility.
