I figured I'd be able to subsidize some of the cost by selling the RTi10s. A new TV is on the horizon, but the 4k (75") I want I don't want to give them that kind of money and I know it will be much cheaper by years end, so I will wait them out. I also am in the market for a UHD player also. We'll see.

Thanks
The RTi to RTiA step is so small its not worth it. Additionally while the A9's may be better midrange, its not enough to justify the price. TBH you wont get JACK out of the RTi if you try to resell them. No one will pay anything for them, you will be lucky to get 200 out of the pair tops, ask @RobLee .

Again if you want better, you need to up your game significantly and just buying the A9's aint gonna do it, and I'm afraid you will be disappointed if you get them.

Not a clue bro. This is where things get subjectively too hard to make suggestions. The best thing I can tell you is to take your time, go to some different stores that actually know how to setup speakers right and try different brands.

Make a demo cd of your favorite songs and listen to them and see what you think.

There are a lot of different options out there, and what I like brand and sonic signature wise may not be your cup of tea and vice versa.

Hence I'm hesitant to make suggestions. Its always best to get out there and listen to as many speakers as you can, in your price range or not. Bookshelf or towers.

If you truly do have enough subs for your liking, then a floorstander isnt really "needed" and that may open up better options for you.

There are too many speakers out there to name, so get out there, listen to as many as you can to figure out what kind you like. Do you prefer ribbon tweeters like in Emotiva speakers, do you like dome tweeters like in Polk, Planar magnetic like in Salk, etc...... Do you like electrostatics like Martin Logan, or perhaps full on Planar like Magnepan...... Are horns like those in Klipsh speakers your deal?

Sounds fair. That's going to be tough. The one stereo store that existed I don't think exist anymore. I may contact Crutchfield since they are not too far from me and visit their shop.
