new here and to polk audio...in the last 6 months I went from a old 5.1 sony set up from about ten years ago to onkyo 607 with r50's and tsi c10 with psw125 sub, all in cherry wood and my cheap sony rears...it sounded great.....then picked up for next to nothing, some used tc 625i ceiling speakers for right above my couch witch is against the wall. I was hesitant but turned out great.......but then I decided to go with height speakers so i picked up some rti a1's from craigslist for 100 bucks, with not a scratch on them. sounded even better....Then 2weeks ago i found the deal i'v been looking for i picked up a pair of rti a7's and the csi a6 for a third of the price they normally are.....WOW!!!! i love my new set up! the mids and highs are great, my friends tell me it sounds better than the movie theater "what i was aiming for" the only thing now is i'm looking into painting my psw125 black to match everything up.. ......thanks for letting my brag alittle

    Polk speakers are very good, You made a good choice!. I just got the RT7 speakers(long time discontinue), they are old but they are some of the best polk speakers I ever heard. I love Polk speakers!!!
