Well, it's good you dropped the 301's out of the picture, now go listen to whatever falls into your price range and take home what you find pleasing to the ear and the eye !!!! Also do a little self-education before you go and research what the important factors are when looking at a speakers specs..... Ohms, sensitivity, power handling etc.... make sure you get what also compliments what's powering them i.e... your receiver. Good luck and happy hunting !!
Hate to hijack this thread but I listened to both the RTi4 and RTi6 yesterday. For some reason, my ears really like the 4's over the 6's. Maybe it was my wallet talking. But out of curiousity, how do these Polks sound vs. say Paradigm Atom/Titans and B&W 303's? Are they in the same category as far as temperture? (warm, neutral, laid back, etc?)
It's been a while since I heard some really high end monitors but I would have to say they are not even close. Granted they were being driven by Onkyo and Harmon Kardon as opposed to Music Fidelity, Levinson or ARC but its still like comparing a Celica GT to a Porsche 911 Turbo. I was still surprisngly impressed until they were pushed hard and then things went South in a hurry. I would love to hear them crossed over rather high and mated with a good subwoofer, then I bet they would really shine.
