I think I would just buy the Rti8's and use them for two channel stereo upstairs. The current Rti6 as rear surrounds are fine where they are.
How does your current system sound to you? Do you have a subwoofer?
If you found RTi12, I would replace the RTi10 and move them upstairs.
Hypothetically let's say I had the RTi12s, RTi10s, CSi5, FXi3s, FXi5s, RTi6s, and sub, which speakers would you choose and where would you (or anyone reading this for that matter) place the speakers
? I right now have a Denon 3808CI at 130/channel. I'm a bit concerned it may not be able to push the RTi12s enough, although the RTi10s sound pretty good when I listen to music and home theater.
The speakers placed upstairs will be powered by the same Denon 3808CI hooked up with the multi-room feature. I'm not sure if that means they can output the same 130/channel though.
Here is also a reference guide from THX of how to place the speakers. Kind of weird how they recommend placing the rear surrounds. I was thinking even if the RTi10s were placed in back, that the adyssey calibration included with the Denon 3808 would make use of them accordingly.http://www.thx.com/home/setup/speakers/71.htmlhttp://www.thx.com/home/setup/speakers/back.html
