I have hard a lot about the CSI A6 but I can't find away to listen to it so I bought the s30 and I love the sound that come out of it but still want to know if any one have compared the to and can tell me which one sounds best.

    CSI A6 sounds better with the RTI A series speakers, and S30 sounds better with the signature series. Any other speakers they are matched with they will sound mediocre, to acceptable at best.

    have had the A6 for a couple years below the tv. never thought it was that great til i flipped it over. paired with 75Ts. i love it
  • I have to s30 and the s20 I just want to make sure I got the right front stage set up. I love the way the set up sounds. But if it could be even better that's what I want.

    I tried the CSi5 and 3 with my S60, nope aint happening. S30 blends right in. CSI speakers stood out way to much for my liking.

    I have a TSX250C in my bedroom HT with S20 and does ok, at least is doesn't stand out.

    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

    I had a CSI a6 that I compared to the s35 with my 60s. The a6 which sounds great did not blend or match with the 60s. Same series and timbre makes for a nice seamless sound stage.
