The Official Speaker Review

I did my research and these speakers get really strong reviews. I had big tower speakers and sold them, they were good but too big and they didn't match my poolroom. I have a set of 4 Polk Audio in ceiling speakers but needed a good set of book shelf speakers too. These are nice crisp sounding speakers, they are not tinny in anyway, thought I would need a sub but these speakers have a nice full balanced sound. The first song I listened to was Rhiannon - Fleetwood Mac and I heard things on that song I have never heard before. I have the receiver hooked up to my big screen, watched hockey ( the preds took the oilers 5 - 4 but on the game winning goal an offside should have been called but it wasn't, stupid ref) and the Daytona 500 and the sound was amazing. I'm not big into movies but I would bet these speakers would make any movie come to life. I played a few MP3's through the usb input on my bluray and they never sounded better. Are there better speakers on the market, well of coarse there are... but I am really happy with these. They didn't break the bank either. Taking sound quality, look and price into account I would give them 10 outta 10 (and I'm pretty hard to please).

Pretty darn good speakers

After I blew my Paradigm Titan speakers, I didn't think I'd find some that were comparable at a reasonable price but I was wrong. Got them on sale and I must say they are pretty good, although I have to turn up the volume just a little more than with the others, but otherwise great sound.

Excellent product

I have those setup now for about 3 weeks and I love them! Very well built and sturdy. Can't complain! As with any new speaker though, wait until they are properly broken-in before judging their performance. Will buy more Polk Audio products!

RTiA1 - Black

Living with the RTIA1 for 2 months now, finally broken in and they sound even better make sure to pair them with a sub to give it the fat sound and of course if you can buy them on sale, you will not be disappointed they're such an easy pair to drive with any amp, I was so impressed that I purchased a 2nd pair for my den

Great sound, love the design and build quality as well. Bought a day before a deeper sale price, was able to match the price. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Great Value for the Money

Speakers arrived today within 2 days of ordering. Easy set up (mounted them on a wall). Sound awesome! I highly recommend them.

RTiA1 Bookshelf Speakers

Picked these up to pair with CSia4 for my home theater. Theater room is not set up yet, but I hooked these up to our receiver and there is excellent sound quality for music. Might need a set for the living room!

Good quality, sound, and value

I matched them up to a Yamaha 150 watt receiver and I'm very satisfied. It's just a small 900 SF home and I put the speakers on the floor in the living room. They are more than adequate and I'm very pleased with the sound. This set-up is replacing a 33 year old Harmon Kardon component system with a lower end set of Sony speakers. Definitely an overall improvement.

These and a sub is all you need

I was going to buy more expensive speakers and then read a lot of reviews, here on BB and in other places and noticed that TRI1 is getting high marks everywhere consistently. I decided to try them and am very happy so far. You can get by with the speakers only but if you want to add juice and depth to your music then you will for sure need a subwoofer. I tried the speakers with 4 different subwoofers and picked the best I liked - 10" Soundstage. Both work seamlessly and exceeded my expectations. I have a big room to fill - more than 3000 cubic feet and so far I never had to turn the volume on for more than a half. Now, I bought it for music only, I don't watch TV so I don't care about all the sound effects there. Possibly, if you want your house to shake when the truck explodes it won't be enough for you then, I don't know. To me the combo that I ended up with is excellent, it exceeded my expectations. My wife enjoys our new setup too - if you are married you know what I mean... For the source I use Marantz-CR611 which is another amazing toy, I believe.

Polk RTIA1 with PSW10 Sub

I bought these during the Black Friday Sale for [price] and the sub for [price] to replace Energy bookshelf speakers, and I am so glad I did, was about to give away an old HK receiver because it just didn't pair well with any speakers I had. Hooked up the Polks and immediately noticed my receiver coming alive, surprisingly good base and good overall soundstage,added the 10" sub as well keeping the HK
