Polk Audio RTI A7 Floorstanding Speaker (Single, Cherry)

100% Positive Reviews


Pros: Beautiful cherry finish; good build quality, plenty of bass (almost no need for subwoofer), bi-ampable.

Cons: Occasionally too bright.

This speaker is well constructed and beautiful in cherry. Produces plenty of bass that renders my subwoofer nearly useless - except in the very low (below 30 Hz) registers where the subwoofer finally has something to clearly contribute. No complaints at all for home theater: it's crisp and robust. The matching CSI-A6 center speaker is a great partner and blends perfectly. For music, it's punchy and dynamic, but tenor voices are occasionally over-powering and can benefit from minor EQ or treble adjustment. Percussion and stringed instruments become three-dimensional when not filtered - though crash cymbals can seem exaggerated when not attenuated. Best when run "full range" or "large," but that may more be the result of my AVR and/or listening environment. A separate pre-amp seemed to add noticeable clarity and depth at moderately loud (-20db ref.) levels. At lower levels, a loss of subtlety occurs, but not sure whether that could be remedied with better gear.


Pros: Cherry finish, great bass, overall performance

Cons: none

Upgraded to the A7 from the Monitor 70 line. Was absolutely blown away by the A7s performance right away. Listened to fav cds for 6 hours & fiddling with the crossover to see where the best sound was. For 2-ch listening, full range was stupendous! These speakers don't need a subwoofer! Finally settled in at 80Hz & the music comes alive. Paired with the CSi A6 center makes for a great setup imho. The cherry finish is by far superior to what the Monitors offered. Night & day difference! I didn't listen to my vinyl much with the M70s but with these, I get to rediscover all my albums with new fervor. Highly recommened speakers!
