    Well if I had $2100 we would not have had to have this war lol.

    If I am lucky I will have a few hundred for speakers in the Fall and maybe by tax time I will have some money for an amp if the IRS doesn't gank me.

    Furthermore I still want an amp on the rears.

    I did not intend to eliminate any amps just move em around so to speak so I would still need another two channels for the fronts.

    For brand new in the 500 buck range.....nothing. Aside from Emo that is but for me that pairing isn't the best with RTI's. Maybe look outside the Polk brand if you want to stick with the Emo amps and can't afford anything higher up the Polk line. Salk may offer you better sound with the Emo's than the RTI's will. Totem ....maybe Kef too.

    Parasound 2250 v2. At $1400, it'll have you begging for mercy.

    Are you absoloutly sure this is going to work with the RTi's and for the future and what ever that holds? I just got back from house shopping and instead of 16 months I probably have more like 36 months to get a new house %^( so I am about to pull the trigger on a new amp. Hell I may end up getting the LSi's too.

    I just want some new fronts now. RtiA9,s do you folks approve or no?

    Does it HAVE to be new? A pair of SDA's or upper echelon of RTA's will beat the RTiA's out in music. Suppose it really depends on your tastes but many agree.

    Will there ever be another FF sale? I see that they have extended the 2nd tower half off sale
  • adabroadabro Posts: 208
    They've had two that I know of, seems safe to assume there may be another in the future.

    Working on it, I have to take lots of breaks getting on the floor is killing me. I am lucky that I figured out how to make space for it although it is sticking out 3 inches.
