-Extremely revealing and detailed, especially the tweeter, I love it.
-I have found that the soundstaging and imaging are great, but not really a big improvement over my rti8 and swan 5.1.
-Amazing bass response, but I don't use the extension as I have it crossed at 80hz, but for the record, these go very low.
-The manual states 48 hz, but I can get usable response down to just under 40 when running them full range. I was listening to bass mekanik and I went to go turn the sub down.... that bass was coming from the 930's... the sub was off! And I have a 15" sealed 350 watts RMS epik valor. The SS 8545 midwoofer is just nasty down low.
-I agree with this previous statement by another AVSer; "There is nothing the 930's don't do extremely well." Music and
HT are presesnted flawlessly.
-They look gorgeous, especially on TAI's D-stands. I think they look far better than the rti8's, and even better than the Swan 5.1's in BC. Maybe it's just because I know what's under the hood.
Bottom line, I think they're what you should get when you spend a couple grand on a wood box 15x8x13. They are mesmerizing to me aesthetically and sonically. The two compliment themselves and work together to possess my mind.
I especially like watching them as sound comes out. I sometimes kiss them goodnight....... my gf gets jealous.
Even though that was a joke it is not too far from reality. What I'm saying is it is very easy to fall in love with them. And I might have kissed them goodnight once.
I first bi-amped them with my yamaha v1800 (130 wpc), but now I've got a parasound hca-1205a driving everything (140x5) and every aspect of their sound is just a little bit better, except high volume levels which sounds far superior to the v1800. I have polk rti6 for rears and a phantom center.
Now IMO the rti6 are a fine speaker, especially for the 200 I paid for them 3 months ago. The 930's are basically rti6's with every area being just a little better. Both have silk domes (SS, Vifa) mid woofs 7", and rti6 6.5", both a cherry color which are quite similar, and when my yammy 1800 pre/pro is on 7 ch stereo, I sometimes can't tell the rti6's are on unlil I get within 1 or 2 feet of them.
I tihnk the 930's match the rti6 absolutely wonderfully, almost perfectly actually, but I have some dana 630 that should have been here Friday by Fed Ex's calculations (today is monday). All 3 audio products through Fed Ex in the last month have been at least 2 days late. Anyways...Bottom line:
if you can find a pair of the 930s and have an extra $1500, IMHO you CANNOT go wrong with these speakers, no matter what their intended application.
