Not really "down" on Monitors, but realize (or have learned) that they are after all the low tier of the Polk product line. Many of us who now own Rti's or Lsi's gave Monitors an honest try.......

Scroll back a few pages and you'll see a discussion about the Rti line being superior to the Monitor line. Some smaller Rti's... Rti6's (or their newer model, the RtiA3) are nice bookshelf speakers....

Again, your M70's are big, power hungry, home theater speakers and are not audiophile grade.
Your Energy's may actually be better sounding, especially in a smallish room. Food for thought.

If they are new, let your M70's break in for a while before judging them. They will open up after a few weeks.
Plus, be aware you're not feeding them much power with that AVR.

You can re-assign the two "spare" amps to either rear, heights, wide, zone 2, or bi-amp your mains, but bi-amping really doesn't get you anything. Most here will agree. And with the Rti12's you will...

Great speakers, but be aware they are larger than you would think. Also they cannot be used (practically) as fronts should you ever try them in that position. They do spread the surround sound...

Yeah, as I understand it, Dynamic Volume is comparable to volume compression... it boosts low levels and limits loud peaks. On some AVR's it's referred to as "midnight" or night setting. Dynamic EQ...

Same here... I have the A9's set to 40Hz for HT, and full range (no sub) for music.

Denon 4520 at a minimum. I just bought one new for $1100 so I'm sure you can do better. I tried my A9's on the 3312 and they sounded anemic, so added an external XPA-5, and recently bought an XPA-2...

I can attest to the superiority of the Rti line over the Monitors. Heads and shoulders may be an understatement.
I started with M50's and a BIC sub, moved up to M60's, then M70's. Also had CS1,...
