The CsiA4 is smaller but also weaker. I'd recommend that you keep the CS2 (or even move up to a larger center such as the Csi5 that actually matches your Rti8's) and build a riser using some shelf...

I agree with you on that. In fact, I was going to say that in a post before I scrolled down to yours.

The Rti4's are great little speakers, but the 6's will blend better with what you have.

The A5's will work well in that case and the CsiA4 is adequate for small room or bedroom, especially for TV and casual music and such... not so much for movies, but as you say, the main system is...

The new A9 will stand upright. Actually my current center (CsiA6) is also standing on end, on top of a sub.

The Rti4's are indeed amazing little speakers. In addition to my main A9's (and Lsi9's in the bedroom) we also run a small Rti bookshelf system for watching TV and casual music, consisting of a Csi3,...

You said a mouthful here. EQ can only smooth out peaks and dips. Each speaker will still have its own sound. Otherwise, everyone would just buy cheap speakers and expect the AVR make them sound...

Primarily at what I would have to call mid volume, around 20db down from reference level, or typical movie volume.

I do not listen at high volume... never higher than -10db.

They will not match at all, but once you hear the CsiA6 you will realize how much better the Rti's really are over the Tsi's. Quite possibly you will end up replacing everything. I know, it happened...

I tried powering the A9's with my 3312 when I first upgraded from A7's to A9's and to be honest the A9's sounded anemic running on just the AVR... even after a couple months time, giving the drivers...

IIRC the M30, 40 and 60's all use 5" drivers, while the CS2 uses 6" drivers.

The M30 would however match the CS1, but that tends to be a weak center.

More speaker is always better. The Rti6's will indeed sound good, noticeably better than many other models or brands of bookshelf speakers. But they will not 'fill' a room of that size. If you...

I can vouch for that configuration. We use Rti6 for mains and Rti4's as surround with a Csi3 and a small 8" sub in the family room for TV and casual music and they are perfectly matched... also...

It sounds like you are only getting a stereo signal to the AVR. The receiver can only decode what the source provides to it, from the DVD, BDP, game console or whatever. If the source outputs a DD or...

What happens is is the speakers can draw more power than the amp can provide. And the problem with an AVR is not actually the amplifiers in it, but the common power supply that powers all channels....

I've been considering the X4000 as my next upgrade, mainly for the 9.2 capabilities, and being more affordable than the 4250. But even the 150wpc of the 4250 falls short of the "recommended" 200wpc...
