I remember how my A9's sounded for their first few months when I was driving them with the 125wpc Denon 3312 which I had been using to drive the A7's as mains. They seemed anemic... nothing like what...

The A9's are a definite upgrade from the A7's and will actually sound different, being slightly more brilliant on the high end and deeper on the low end. The A7's come off sounding more mellow...

The whole thing about amps and big speakers comes down to sharing a limited amount of power among a number of speakers. Each speaker has multiple drivers. Each driver consumes power, even if the...

Ditto. I run the A9's full range. Stereo mode for music. For HT the subs only get the ".1" LFE signal. Sounds good!



Traditionally I primarily listened to classical and classic rock, but in the...

The Rti6's and Rti8's are both great speakers. I've used Rti6's (later upgraded to RtiA3's for cosmetic reasons) as mains for TV viewing and casual music, with the A3/Rti6's running full range and...

I checked a couple websites and haven't found any true technical specs for that AVR. Most list only a multitude of "features" without any figures regarding wattage. IMO for $350 he won't be getting...

Geoff - Though I don't know about the 703's, I can tell you that I still prefer the A9's in stereo mode for music over my Lsi9's, and for HT the A9's greatly overpower the Lsi's. Just IMO. The Lsi's...

Sounds awesome but can the CsiA6 handle that much power? (If I correctly understand what you're doing). It's so easy to blow a center. I've never blown one myself but have repaired two centers that...

Given that it is possibly older than you are, I'm not even sure it would still work if I were to hooked it up. But in 2010 it was still driving my LST's quite respectably.

Heck, while we're just...

Dan, I bought a 2 channel Onk specifically to use with my 4 ohm Lsi9's. Mainly I bought it because it for the pre-outs, and intended to use my Crown stereo amp, which IIRC I had quoted specs to you a...

Yeah, we use a Csi3 under the TV in a video console and it works fine. It is compact and can be easily placed due to its sealed back, and has the Rti's signature clarity and definition. But the...

The A1's make nice sounding surrounds, but the 6" woofer in the A3's would perfectly match your A7's, Fxi's and center. I'd say go for the A3's if you can afford them, though the smaller A1's are...

The crossover has only one driver active at a time. One of the 6" drivers handles upper midrange and the other one gets the lower midrange. I think the low end rolloff is around 55Hz. The Rti8 and...
