Tough question, and mostly a judgment call that only you can answer. How big is your room? How loud do you listen? The RC-70s are good, but voiced a bit "warm" (ie, upper bass emphasis), while the...

It seems I'm a target in the above rant. Let me just say this: A product I was technical lead on was reviewed by them and is available in their online archives. To prove my comments about their...

Their list is a joke (because it's all so arbitrary), but even worse is how influential it is.

Right, hedrick.

^Fairly flat on-axis response, plus smoothly declining off-axis response, are necessary but not sufficient requirements for a speaker to sound good.

It must also be free of...

It's a Porsche 911 turbo. No room for the speakers.



Nah, it's a Ford Focus. The rear seat folds down but not completely (and not a split-fold either). The 2.3i's are big and bulky and heavy...

1) I think $750 is a good, maybe very good, price for a pair of 2.3i's in very good or excellent condition. But what's funny is that that same seller had them listed before for $700, not $750! He...

The laser mechanism? :confused:

Then why doesn't the front panel light up? Why doesn't the power LED light up? Why doesn't the disc tray open/close?

^ The magnitude, frequency, and angle of the suckouts depend on three factors: The crossover frequency, the crossover slopes, and the driver-to-driver spacing (center-to-center).

The F208 has a...

Their philosophy is even dispersion in the horizontal plane. Any speaker that isn't a coax (eg, KEF or TAD) is going to have large suckouts in the vertical axis due to interference from one driver...

Then I would guess something is dead on the blue digital board.

There should be some DC voltage on the parallel grey cable to the front panel, because the front panel display would need power. ...

Can you post pictures of the inside (ie, with the top removed). I Googled it but didn't see any pics of the insides.

Does the power button go green when you power it on? Otherwise is it red (or...

Monitor Audio's description of the RX8 sorta, kinda implies that it's a true three-way, but they don't explicitly state that it is. It's kinda of deceiving.

Yes, I think the Wharfedale 10.7 would also be a sideways move.

I do think you would benefit from a better center channel. Maybe you should start there.

To be honest, I prefer the RX6 over the Polk RtiA7 based on looks and size (it's a little more compact), but in terms of sound quality, I can't say it's a big upgrade over the Polks. You might like...

Yeah, they're the last of my Energy speakers. But my brother (not in San Diego) still has RC-50s and RC-10s. And I'll still keep an eye out for 2.2i's if I can find them at a can't-pass-up price. ...
