Im looking for new home theater speakers (replacing 22 year old Acoustic Research set) for 100% movies and cable TV and using a Denon X4500H.. For me the #1
criteria is a wood cherry finish and the second is cost. The speaker set is a floor standing left and rights, center and 2 bookshelf speakers for front heights.
I found the Aperion Versus Grand III and that set is $4K:and very similar looking Polk RTi series set (RTi-A7, CSI-A6, RTi-A1) is $1K. I got the Polks from Crutchfield for a 60 day audition and they are beautiful cabinets. Later after I bought the RTis I discovered there is a Polk LSi series that would be $3K set.
Do you have experience with the RTi series to share?
I need to place the RTi-A7 against the wall and being ported speakers I hear thats not good to do.
How are they in the living room home theater.
Is it even possible that the Aperion's at 4X the cost even approach that 4x better sound?
After I bought the RTis, I now see that Polk also has the LSI series in cherry cabinets at $2.8K for the set. Ive read the LSi's are more for music then home theater. So perhaps a littel buyers remorse but would the LSi's at 3X the cost approach 3X better sound?
If you have some experience with the RTis I would be most appreciative if you could share.
