Pros: HT and music, great bass, less bright than tsi series
I got a great deal on these from www.acousticsounddesign.com who were great to deal with. These replaced tsi500's in my 5.1 HT setup. The difference between these and the tsi's are night and day. The detail is amazing and they put out so much beautiful sound effortlessly. There are so many comments out there about the rti's being very bright/forward but i was pleasantly surprised to find them much more laid back when compared to the tsi's. I have these running off an Onkyo 809 and they sound fantastic -- full sound at all volume levels. I will think about adding an external amp at some point but given how great they sound now im unsure of how much improvement i would get. For HT I'm crossing them over at 50hz but for music it really does sound great to run them full band/range and turn the sub right off (for me an HSU stf-2). LOVIN' these bad boys!
