    RTA 12b's for $250, no affiliation. Teaser picture, not actually the sellers speakers.

    4.1TL

    I'm intrigued... What's a 4.1TL? I thought there wasn't such a thing...

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    It's an upgrade for the Gen 2 CRS+ (pin/blade). Not official in any way, just the vernacular used to differentiate within the SDA line.

    No it was definitely Polk offical. They just dropped the SDA line before it was implemented. It was for the SDA2b and CRS+ since they both used the same crossover.

    Ok, Learned something new. I've only seen 4.1 associated with the CRS, and to date have not seen anything, literature wise, that touts the 4.1 nomenclature other than scant mentions of it here on the forum. That would explain their rarity.

    this is in the vintage SDA section. look it was even "approved" by Polk.
  • FestYboyFestYboy Posts: 2,988
    Chasing speakers is more fun :p

    But reading that approved mod schematic over (twice), I did NOT see any 4.1 designation anywhere, just an SK3k note at the top...

    Ok, I see that now. I'll have to get Ken or DK to update the model list as well. I'm in possession of an SDA 2 pair with the RTA 3 pin IC cable with SL1000 tweets. Once the 2.3s are put in their place, I'll formally document them for the revision.

    Is that a Monoprice tube amp? Running a McIntosh amp via Bluetooth?

    Oh the horror!

    Those SRS’s look nice, but that’s McIntosh is where it’s at. Something about backlit tuners/power meters (especially of the green variety) looks amazing to me. :)

    Yep. I was looking at the XO plate and counting the number of screws. However there was a transitional model with the same XO plate with the pin/blade socket.
