  • Thanks for the kind words Geoff! You have an amazing system yourself! I would have loved to try my new power amp on my RTiAs to see the difference it would have made. I felt I never powered my A7s to their full potential. Been very happy with dolby …
  • Thanks for everyone's help! In case anyone wanted to see pictures (excuse the messy wiring, it doesn't bug me too much but likely bugs a lot of others)

  • Yikes, sorry to hear that your unit got smashed. I was lucky with my 706c, it came in perfect condition from FedEx, not even a ding on the box. The 707s from UPS (Best Buy Canada) though as treated very poorly from the UPS driver, he literally pushe…

  • That would save me some money for sure, thanks! The sale for the 703 ends today at best buy canada so I'll save it in the box until I get to test the 707+706c together with my current system before deciding if I need to upgrade the surrounds and ope…
  • Hi guys, so I have splurged quite a lot now. I got the LSiM707, LSiM706c and a Emotiva XPA-3 power amp coming. I have one more question, if I can afford only a pair of LSiM703 right now, should I use them as side surrounds or rear surrounds? I will …
  • mdaudioguy wrote: » Mismatched surrounds aren't of concern to many HT folks. Emotiva gets a mixed reaction here, but I don't think it would be bad matched with LSiM for HT. Thanks for the insight! In that case, would the XPA-2 be enough or …
  • Hey guys, let's say I decide to splurge a little and do get a pair of LSiM707 + LSiM706c. Will I be okay for now to just leave my surrounds as RTiA1 + T300? And if I were to add a power amp to give the speakers more juice, would the Emotiva XPA-3 Ge…
  • I think you guys have successfully convinced me not to get the speakers and to look at a more powerful power amp instead to juice up my current RTiA7s. Thanks for all your input!
  • Currently, I would say my use is 50% blu-ray movies + 40% Sports/TV/Netflix + 10% music. The only reason I don't use it much for music though is because I find the sound quite lacking. I originally thought these speakers could potentially keep the m…

  • If I were to choose between Polk DSW PRO 550WI or the SVS PB-1000, which should be my choice? (they are roughly the same price on Amazon Canada). Don't currently have the budget yet for SVS PB-2000, they are roughly double the cost compared to th…
  • Thanks Ricardo, since everyone is in agreement that I need an upgrade on subwoofer, I will shop around and see what's available at local stores and online for Canada. This leads me to another question (sorry I'm still very new to home audio), for…
  • I would say roughly 75% blu-ray/uhd blu-ray movies (been getting most discs with dolby atmos tracks) and 25% music. The Polk DSW PRO 550WI seems readily available in Canada at a very low cost too, thanks for the suggestion, I will definitely look…
  • Thanks for the suggestion! I will see if those subwoofers are available in Canada, how many watts should I be looking at to power the A7's? How much would the A9's need?
  • Not a very big room to be honest, don't have dimensions, I'm very bad with my measurements, so can't even estimate. Are you suggesting instead of upgrading from the rtia7 to rtia9, I should instead get a better subwoofer(s)? Any suggestions what wo…
  • Thanks for the reply! I have limited access to a lot of the suggested power amps as I am in Canada and lots of places only ship within the US. However my local dealer does sell speakercraft, would this sufficiently power the RTiA9's: SC2-150 http…
