What is everyones recommendation for the best bookshelf speakers on the market right now? I would like it to have a paired center channel.
Looking for a significant upgrade over my Polk Audio RTi8 towers.
I'm looking to buy a pair of floor standing speakers for my fronts. I've got a couple options already picked out, but would like more opinions. My budget is $350.
Option 1: Cambridge Audio S70's (~$320)
Option 2: Pioneer FS52's (~$240)
Option 3: Pioneer FS52's with C22 Center ($335)...
As many of you know, I got my new SVS PB12-NSD on Friday. I just hooked it up and was re-going through the Audyssey set-up calibration.
As a reminder:
Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR805
Front L/R: Polk Audio RTi8
Center: Polk Audio CSi5
Surround R/L: Polk Audio Monitor 40
I recently upgraded my Polk Audio PSW505 subwoofer to a SVS PB12-NSD but haven't got it hooked up yet (doing it tomorrow)
Currently my set-up is as follows:
Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR805
Front: Polk Audio RTi8
Center: Polk Audio CSi5
Surround L/R: Polk Audio Monitor 40
I could snag a nice deal on a pair of RTi8s and a CSi5 for about $450. Some have mentioned to me that the Denon 1613 isn't powerful enough to drive those as well as surrounds for a 5.1 system. Would I need to upgrade to a more powerful receiver in order drive these effectively? Thanks!
I am wanting to move away from my Onkyo TX-SR705 receiver as I am lately getting some annoying chirps out of it here and there that will continue until i turn the receiver off and then back on. It is about 4 or 5 years since I got it so I really just want to get a replacement for...
I have little knowledge of speakers and would kindly appreciate some advise on speakers for my new house. I recently got a Yamaha RX-V773 and realized my old Klipsch HD 500 speaker system is too weak for my larger living room 25'x20'. I would like to get floorstanding speakers and center with...
I currently have the Jamo s426 5.0 system in a 12'x13' room. This is combined with a BIC F12 sub and it is all driven by a Denon 1913. Used mostly for movies.
I have the opportunity to pick up some Polk RTi8's for $150/each.
Would the Polk's (as the fronts) give me a significant improvement...
Hi, I'm a new member and looking for advice to finalize my decision on a new AVR. I currently have a somewhat dated HK 230, which is a 50 wpc 6.1 receiver. I have no real complaints about it, except that it is somewhat technically outdated and it is time for a refresh.
I recently upgraded my...
I have a pair of TSi300, and i was thinking about upgrading, but I would like to keep my Polk CS2 center

And finally, what about the RTi8? I know my CS2 is not...

If you had less than $400 to spend on just one set of floor standing speakers, no sub, what would you buy. They will be plugged into a Marantz NR 1501 receiver. I will be using it to watch movies (so understanding dialog is important), and listening to music (streaming mp3's). I just want 1...
I am looking for some opinions for upgrading my speakers. I currently have a cambridge soundworks set up ( 3 mc300, s300 surrounds and a polk psw10 sub) running of yamaha v673. I also just purchased a used set of def tech promonitor 1000's. I have decided that I want to get a set of...
Hi Everyone! Lots of great info on this site...
I just got a pair of Ultrasone Pro 900 for movie watching and playing PS3 (and PS4 come Friday). I was curious if any of you guys had any good cans that you use.
Unplugged I use pairs of Polk RTi8, Polk CSi3, RTi4, and PSW125's.

Looking for some fun speakers. Listen to lots' of 60's rock, 80s, pop and a small amount of R&B. 75% will be HT/Gaming but I care about music too. Don't care for jazz or classical if that helps.
Trying to avoid a lifeless dull speaker. Something where it isn't muddy or with a recessed treble...

I just felt it was about time we had an official polk speaker thread , being that according to the speaker brand poll , we have quite a few polkies in here. This might be a good place to discuss tweaks , problems or experiences with your speakers. I for one own a pair of Rti 8s which im very...
