    So what are you buying instead?
    There is no genuine justice in any scheme of feeding and coddling the loafer whose only ponderable energies are devoted wholly to reproduction. Nine-tenths of the rights he bellows for are really privileges and he does nothing to deserve them. We not only acquired a vast population of morons, we have inculcated all morons, old or young, with the doctrine that the decent and industrious people of the country are bound to support them for all time.-Menkin

    You might be surprised, those Mirage are awesome...

    Anyways, FWIW - Those are not Oak, they are vinyl

    heres a quote:
    Real Wood at Vinyl prices - The first thing you'll notice about the RTiSeries is their luxurious real wood finishes: beautiful light Maple, inviting Cherry, and serious Black Oak (the RT15i, our small bookshelf speaker, is also available in white). What will really surprise you, though, is that you won't pay a premium for these distinctive real wood finishes. Because of our in-house, computer controlled woodworking factory we can offer these rich finishes at prices you'd normally pay for vinyl.


    The "i" series are the exact same speaker except they dont use the trilaminar tweeter, have a slightly different x-over frequency and the cones are blue.

    Actually, the RTxxxi series had the trilaminate dome tweeter. The RTixxx series switched to the silk domes.

    The RTxxx series had vinyl cabinets. The RTxxxi series upgraded to veneer.

    Wood at Vinyl prices - The first thing you'll notice about the RTi Series is their luxurious real wood finishes: beautiful light Maple, inviting Cherry, and serious Black Oak (the RT15i, one of our smaller bookshelf speakers, is also available in white).

    MSRP: $159.95 ea (US)


    Rt25 specs from
    http://www.smr-home-theatre.org/Reviews/Polk_4/

    System Frequency Response, -3dB 60Hz - 23kHz
    5¼" polymer/mineral composite Dynamic Balance® driver - shielded
    1" polymer dome tweeter - shielded
    Size: 11-1/8" H × 6-5/8" W × 10¼" D
    Finish: black woodgrain vinyl over ¾" MDF (front and rear baffles - injection molded high density, mineral filled polymer)
    MSRP: $139.95 ea (US)


    Notable differences are the tweeter material, slightly higher upper freq response on the Rt25i, and cabinet.

    I bought a new pair of Rt25i in 2002 for $140 ($70 ea). $200 a pair for the older Rt25 seems a little high.

    The RT25 models sell for no more than 120 + S used, on good days - It has been a while since I've really kept track though...

    But the RT35i sold for 150-200 or so + S...

    EBay prices HAVE gone up...so ya know

    sorry, dude, I'm on a bit of a budget. Any idea whether the cs245 is a good timbre match for monitor 10Bs? Got a picture?
