Thinking of selling a pair of cherry Rti8's (excellent condition) and Csi5 to move to bookshelf speakers for space reasons. What is a fair price to ask for these?

Regarding slickdeals Adorama deals...debated and sat out and now lost out on 703's...when can I expect them to go on sale again or the 707's. Ideally, want to do the 706c center and 707 towers...seems they don't go on sale a ton on slickdeals through Adorama?

Sorry, couldn't tell you. Each time I sold a series of speakers, I'd figure 50% of the MSRP to leave myself haggling room. Of course my speakers were smoke free, pet free and in excellent condition with original boxes. And after demoing them, I actually got my asking price on both a 7.2 Onkyo speaker set and a Monitor70, 40, 30 and CSII 7.0 set.

It was the demo that clinched the sale each time.

I know the deals don't come around every week but, they do come around more frequent than the Fam and Friend deal from Polk. Just keep your eye out and bank acct ready

Be sure to check Polk ebay from time to time as well, that's where I got the deal on my 706.

I just threw up some Atrium-4's for now till I find something I like! For Atmos ceiling speakers.


They sound good and get the job done.

For all you Polk fans, I am going to upgrade my dedicated H/T room from 7.1 to 7.1.4 by adding some height speakers for Atmos capability. I am unable to access above the ceiling, so in ceiling speakers are out and I have to go with surround types mounted at the ceiling/wall position. I have ordered 4 Polk T15 speakers for these positions. I am trying to keep the cost down, as much as possible, as I am retired now. I couldn't find anyplace to demo these speakers and ordered just based on the reviews available. My current speakers are all older Aerial's, 10T's front L&R, CC5 center, 2 SW 12's for subs, SR3 side surrounds and Model 6's for rear surrounds. My question, for those of you that have heard the T15, is do you think it will blend fairly well with my Aerial's, or will they stand out too much? I thought, being that the height channels are not always in use, that I could use these in my system. Anyone have any information on these?

I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will chime in but it's been my experience that "speaker matching" is getting less important with the higher end AVRs because of the room and speaker equalization features (YPAO, Audyssey, ...)

I'm guessing you've got a fairly capable receiver to do 7.1.4

I have separates and just upgraded my processor to an Integra DRC-R1.1, which is why I am now going to upgrade the room. The room EQ in this new 1.1 is far superior to my old Integra 80.1 and like you, I think it will blend the T15's in very well. I hope someone with experience with the T15's will chime on how they actually sound as surround speakers.

I currently have a set of Polk Monitor 60 Series II for my fronts and they have been serviceable the last few years. I am looking to replace my rears, they are a set of old Sony bookshelf speakers that came out of a HT setup so they are cruddy. At this point I guess anything is better than those Sony rears. I've been looking at a few other speakers to replace those with. Primarily this setup gets used for movies, gaming, and some music. I already have a subwoofer and its all hooked up to a Denon AVR.

These are the floor standing speakers that I have been looking at:
  • Polk PS50
  • Polk PS55
  • Polk T50
  • Pioneer FS52
My other thought was taking the Monitor 60's in the rear and getting some nicer speakers for the front.

If I were to just keep the Monitor 60's in the front, of the three that I have selected would be the best or are there any other suggestions?

I went from Polk Monitor 60 Series II to S55's in my 3.1 setup and they were a nice improvement over the 60's. I would highly recommend you go 55's over the S50's. I wouldn't go the T50's route at all.

Are you recommending then that I take the 60's and place them in the rears and get the S55's for the fronts?

I'm saying the S55's are a better speaker. You would just have to try it and see how it sounds. I don't know anything about your room and setup.

Though I've never heard them, I've heard good things about the Signature series, even that they rival the RTiA's

Personally, I'd go for the big dog, the 60's, and then try your M60's in the rear. I'll be moving a second set of RTiA9's in the rear to face the other set up front. I've had the big tower back there before and the sound was awesome with all the added bass.

Totally understand that. I will keep the S55's on my list then. My room is not that huge that these are in, probably a good 15x10 area and I have it setup as a 5.1 due to the lack of space right now plus we will be moving in a few months.

I was also looking at the RTiA5, are those better than the S55 or on par with them? It appears that both the S55 and RTiA5's can be bought for about the same price.


I think I would just move my M60's to the rear then.

Well, like I had mentioned before, I've not heard the signature series. And I know Dalmatian Mike loves his A5's like no other, especially for 2ch.

I myself chose the A9 because it's tweeter and mid array was unique to the rest in the series, and although very edgy, or sharp in the beginning, eventually they smoothed out, so much in fact, that my ex had preferred them over the 703's for 2ch. I know that you're tight on space, and without knowing your budget, the A9's are only half price though Polk, and Adorama has a used cherry one for 199 with minor cosmetic damage that Polk could easily replace.

But, I digress, you're probably set on the 55 or the A5, hmmmmm, if only you could give a listen. I would post an add in your local CL and say that you are a forum member and state your wants and intentions and see if you get an invite to come and give a listen.

I’m trying to stay under $500 for both if possible. I’ll also have to look at the price on the A9s to see what they cost. I’m not quite set on the 55s, I’m just doing some research right now trying to find the best ones for the money. If I was even able to get away with $400 for the pair would be awesome. We are planning to move in the next few months so I have to also take that into consideration.

I would contact these guys and ask of all of the drivers in good working condition. If so, pretty good deal. If I were in the market for a pair of A9's, I would definitely go this route.

There are a couple of cosmetic replacements that are needed on both but IMO that is no big deal, well worth it.

Lsim 704's Vs TL3's

I am having a hard time placing the 704's in the rear because of the angling they require and i was wondering if using the TL3's would be a compromise vs the 704's as rear surround speakers. My new room is 23 feet deep 21 wide with 7 and three quarter ceiling height.

Sony Z9D / Marantz AV 7702 / Outlaw 7220 / Polk LSIM 705 / Polk LSIM 706C / Polk 702 FX / GoldenEar XXL / PS4 Pro / Oppo-203 /

I think you mean the LSiM 702 F/X not 704 which is a center channel speaker. i would not worry if you can't aim the tweeter right a the MLP, it will likely be better than a wall mounted speaker aimed at a right angle to the wall. The 702's have a much better base response than the TL3s, so I would prefer the 702s for surround duty if at all possible. I am using TL3s for my Atmos (ceiling) speakers and they work fine, but I do have to use a crossover a bit higher than ideal.

Right, he's got the 702's listed in his signature.

I agree with shs, use those 702's, should work in the rear if you want...…..but don't you just have 5 speakers? Are you able to mount them on the side walls for side surround? Are you planning on sticking with a 5.0 (not sure if I saw a sub in your sig) or do you plan on doing a 7.? something? Either way, the 702's can be wall mounted or you can fasten a pair of stands for them and put them anywhere you want.

Very nice room dimensions you have there, I'm jealous.

How're you liking that super quad subwoofer of yours??? I've been eyeballing the dual sealed 15 incher, the 3010 but heck, I'm still not able to run my Epiks…….don't know when I'll ever have a place to be able to. But once I do, I'll get the 3010 and implement it in with the two Empires

That 7201 looks more powerful that a locomotive I think I'd like it!!

That is beautiful!!! I see you used the 704 as a model for screen height......since that's where the 706 is going

I'm doing some work myself this weekend. Putting the XPA-DR3 into play and moving the 703's forward to be dedicated 2ch and bringing the second set of A9's from the garage to play rear channel...…….oh yeah..to play rear channel

Well, I didn't get to the "rear" channel A9's but I did redo the cabinet and took out the old 3ch amp and added the new 3ch amp. With 450wpch on tap, I'm feeling pretty good about it. Maybe tomorrow I'll bring in the A9's however I may be using the old 3ch amp with my old TX-NR807 to drive the 703's for 2ch.We'll see how it goes tomorrow

Thanks!

Don't know if you're still looking for the Polk 265 LS speakers, but I found them on Amazon for around 250 each in used very good and used like new condition. I bought mine from Amazon Warehouse for about 225 each and have been very happy with them.

Yeah, they pop up new on Amazon for about 225 each every now and then in small quantities. Hope they are still there when I am ready to buy. I've heard they are easy to install, in addition to sounding good.

They were easy to install. They sound excellent and really blend in with my other Polk LSiM speakers. I have no regrets with configuring them in my system as back surrounds.

Thanks. My plan was to use them as my front L/R mains.

If you are planning to use as mains, you may want to research the performance enclosures (aka backer boxes) for these.
