Hey guys looking to upgrade my home theater speakers and am between the two in the title. Which would yall recommend?

Which Rti series are you referring to ?
I felt the Polk's were more dynamic the Infinity's

Probly the A7s although I found some RTi10s at a real good deal if they are good

I have no experience with the A10's but i am sure they are as good as the other lines or better. The A7's are probably the most popular of all the lines that I sell and are a decent budget speaker . I am not sure if the A10's are still a current model but if the price is right and they are in good shape then i say go for it .I have seen some issues with the drivers but don't suspect it to be a wide spread problem . If buying used just make sure all the drivers and tweeters are working smooth and you should be ok.

The 10s are factory refurbs so good as new. They are like $200 each shipped. They arent current anymore but havent been out to long. I love my Polk car speakers and my Polk sub so needless to say I like Polks sound lol

That is going to be hard to beat. I normally tell people to buy from local dealers but that is a decent price.

Yeah I agree with buying local but all my local shop carries is Definitive?

I have recently gotten the pleasure of a demo on some new Legacy speakers and I am now ruined for life ! I am a small dealer and carry many different products and have tested/demoed most of them and my buddy who talked me into starting my own business recently became a Legacy dealer and I got the pleasure to up front some of their line up . I you ever get the opportunity to indulge in their speakers , I promise it will be an experience you wont forget !

Where can I look at them at?

You should be able to go to their website Legacy Audio - Building the World's Finest Audio Systems (http://www.legacyaudio.com/) and find a local dealer . I believe their cheapest floor standing speakers are around $5000 for the pair.

Yeah that's way out of my price range lol. I was thinking $500 for each tower
01-12-2013, 02:06 PM
Me too. But it is worth listening to a pair if you get a chance. They have some videos on there web sight that can give you somewhat of an idea on how well they perform . Some other options that may be closer to your price range that I have found to be nice speakers are Wharfedale , Jamo , And some of my favorites Paradigm.

Believe it or not , I did a budget system with MTX Monitor 600i's for fronts Monitor 6c center Monitor 5i's for rear ,a velodyne impact 10 , on a Yamaha RXV673BL for under $1500 installed and was pretty impressed with how well it performed .

Ok thanks I'll get to looking right now. They all stack up to the Polks or do better?
01-13-2013, 09:12 AM
Paradigm is a better speaker but you pay for them . I may have a set for sell soon myself . I use to sell them but I no longer do . Wharfedale is probably comparable in most opinions, i believe they may be a little better , Jamo is comparable , they can get loud and they have full 5.0 sets cheap . MTX is a little lower quality but supprizing for the price, their fit and finish is not near as good as the rest.

Parts Express sells Pure Acoustics. I've never seen them anywhere but there. My father in law bought a pair and they're absolutely unbelievable! Truly amazing for the 500 or so shipped he paid. They also carry Cerwin Vega, BIC, Pioneer, etc. Great prices! However unless you can go somewhere and try them you'd have to rely on the reviews.
