    5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Amazing Sound 5 Mar 2010
    By N. Noonen - Published on Amazon.com
    I got these on a different website, but I cannot sing their praises enough. They, as stated in other reviews, are 42" tall and weigh around 60lbs. I got the cherry ones and my wife couldn't be happier. The all black bachelor pad look just isn't for us, but these nice warm cherry speakers are beautiful.

    As with all speakers, they get better with age. That is true for these more than any others I have heard. They start out a bit harsh, so much so that I almost regretted my purchase. Then one day, about a month after purchasing them, I turned on my Denon AVR 890 and something magical happened. The sound was full and warm. I thought my wife had changed some equalizer settings, so I checked...everything was the same. Each and every day that I use these (along with my Denon AVR 890, CSi A6, and RTi A3 surrounds, and PSW 125) whether for movies, music, video games, or whatever, I am overjoyed.

    One final thing, and I'm not sure if any other reviewers have discussed this: These are built for two channel audio primarily. There is no reason to spend this kind of money if you just want two fronts for your 5.1 surround sound. The volume and sound quality for 5.1 should be approximately equal across all channels. If 5.1 sound is your game, get the most expensive center channel you can afford (for dialog) and get 4 matching bookshelves for the other channels.

    If you want a sound system that can do 2 channel audio as well as 5 channel video, these are the speakers for you.

    One final note on the Polk RTi system: If you calibrate it correctly and want GOOD sound (not just boomy bass), your living room will sound better than 90% of movie theaters. IMAX is a different story and some really high end theaters callibrate correctly, but the vast majority think that more bass means higher quality. Get a good HT setup, a PS3 Blu-ray player, and you'll never have to pay $10 for crappy sound again. Consider it an investment.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great price for what you're getting 11 Dec 2008
    By Joey Joe Joe Jr. Shabadoo - Published on Amazon.com
    I have been in the process of replacing my HT speakers, moving away from my piecemeal 5.1 setup (old Altec fronts, Bose surround satellites, Boston Acoustics center channel), to an all-Polk 5.1 configuration. From the research I did prior to actually buying anything, reviews seemed to stress that the RTI-A polk line sounds just about as good as other companies' speakers that typically run for twice the price. After listening to a bunch of options at the now-defunct Tweeter, I came to the same conclusion; I purchased this set of RTI-A7s for fronts, a Polk Audio CSI A6 Center Channel, and Polk Audio RTI A3s for rears. I got the RTI-A7s for a song at Tweeter right before they closed, even cheaper than here or other sites.
    These were also the first new items I bought as part of my replacement project, so it really gave me a chance to listen to these in comparison with my old Altecs. I did an A-B test, and the detail and sound field these babies put out really blew away the older, more conventional (and aesthetically speaking much uglier) Altecs (running on a Yamaha RX-V1800). Mid- and High-range detail are exceptional on the RTI A7s, really light years ahead of my old dinosaurs, and perfect for HD formats like BluRay or SACD. The only area where the Altecs win by a slight margin is deep bass (<35Hz) response. But considering the Altec's single, massive 12" woofer as compared with the dual 7" polymer woofers on the Polks, I expected this. Getting a sub solves that problem (I ended up getting a Polk Audio PSW505).
    In terms of power handling, these are rated at 300 watts, which I can't really approach with my receiver. At nearly max volume they still sounded great with no degradation in clarity of sound that I could detect.
    Look and feel is nice too. They feature a sleek curved cabinet design with a black-oak finish, pewter-accented grilles, and stand about 42". Considering the size and quality of construction, they aren't overly heavy either (~60 lbs.)
    These speakers sound equally good with music and movies, having had the chance to test them out pretty extensively since getting them just over a month ago. Another quick note is that when brand-new they sounded a bit bright, but now that I've had time to break them in that issue is gone.
    In conclusion, for the money this is a great buy. You're getting a versatile, powerful loudspeaker that is up to the task of handling the super-detailed sounds of today's HD formats, and you're getting it for substantially less than comparable units from other industry leaders. I am beyond pleased with these speakers - Polk may have converted me permanently. Highly recommended.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best Speakers I've Heard in a Long Time! 27 May 2010
    By Prashant Sistla - Published on Amazon.com
    I recently moved out my parents' house and into my own place. Now that I had the space, I decided to upgrade my old setup (2 Polk Monitor 50s, a CS1 center, and Klipsch satellites). I've been wanting to get a pair of towers so I can listen to music in stereo without having to use the sub. So, I picked up a pair of cherry RTI A7s at the going rate.

    UPDATE:

    It has taken some time to understand is how to get the most out of the RTi A7 speakers. Though they are driven adequately by my Denon AVR-3311ci surround receiver (125w x 7), to get the most out of them you need a good, high current power amplifier. I picked up a Parasound NC 2250 250w x 2 power amp and it has totally opened up these speakers. CDs, lossless music files, DTS CDs, and movies all come across as warm & crystal clear. Bass response is strong, hard, and tight. Yes, the RTi series of speakers are a bit bright but that can be tempered depending on the receiver / amp you use. The most amazing observation I've had is that the RTi A7s are capable of creating a wide sound stage - you hear the music in front of you, but you can't tell that there are 2 separate speakers playing music. It's beautiful :)

    Great speakers and money well spent. I'm slowly replacing the rest of the speaker setup with other RTi A series speakers, so that they are timbre matched - ie. the sound seamlessly wraps around you b/c the speakers are all using the same kind of drivers (materials, etc.).

    Currently the A7s are paired with:

    Polk PSW-505 (overkill, but great for movies)
    Polk CS20 center (eventually will be replaced by CSi A6)
    Polk RTi A1 surrounds (smaller than the A3s, but great bang for the buck and they fit in my apt!)
    Denon AVR-3311ci network AVR
    Parasound New Classic 2250 250w x 2 power amp (via AVR's pre-outs)
    PS3 for blu-ray

    5.0 out of 5 stars Truly superb speakers 21 April 2009
    By Robert A. Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
    These are some really wonderful speakers. I auditioned literally dozens of speakers from Polk, Klipsh, Energy, B&O etc. Some of the ones I tested were 10 times the price of these Polks and even excluding price considerations, these were the best I heard (I even enjoyed them more than the more expensive Polk LSi Series).

    In the past, I would have said that I prefer loudspeakers with a more rounded, mellow, laid-back sound as opposed to ones that are a bit more forward and precise, but the RTi A7s changed my mind. They are not at all harsh or bright, and while they are very precise, they're not at all fatiguing to the ear. To my ear, these speakers offer a fantastic listening experience for both music and home theatre. And, while you're not buying speakers to look at them, you'll be happy with the real wood finish and superb craftsmanship of the cabinets as well.

    Of course, sound quality is somewhat subjective, so you should listen for yourself if you can. However, there's a good reason why these speakers are sold out and back-ordered all across the country: they're really that good. If you can actually get your hands on them, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Just for reference: I use these about 70/30 for music/TV. I have an Onkyo 876 powering these speakers and have them paired with the Polk MicroPro 1000 Sub, Polk CSi A4 Center and a set of Polk RTi A3s for the surrounds. You don't have to source all your speakers from one manufacturer or series, but the Polks are all "timbre-matched" to ensure seamless sound. (Speakers have "accents" and in some cases--particularly with the fronts and the center channel--mix-and-match speakers can sound harsh). Hope this is helpful.

    5.0 out of 5 stars 6 STARS, Perfect Speaker for you money well done Polk !!!! 8 Feb 2011
    By P. Paquette - Published on Amazon.com
    Everything I have to say about Polkaudio RTI A7 speaker is good. Polk did a miracle with them. They better the older RTI10 by far in my opinion and the A7 is in the HIFI league now. I think they made more than 30 prototypes to make it perfect !

    For the asking price, they are a bargain, and you can often have them as discounted prices !

    5 on 5 stars for sure, everybody likes them. They compete with much more expensive speakers out there 2x 3x the price !

    GREAT with HD audio, music, video games !

    They sound great with Yamaha receivers, DENON, Marantz or older HK, they are even better with 200 watts RMS of pure power from ROTEL power amplifier or other. The better the amp, the better they get ! really

    You need to take care in the first 100 hours or so, because they will need a slow and progressive break-in to play perfect after. Woofer are stiff and tweeter are a bit bright at first, but after you'll get the best bass you ever listened too and smooth mids only high quality fabric dome could give you.

    6 stars because I did not find another speaker on the market, for this price or any price that give that kind of sound quality and addictive sound that's fun to listen to!
