Solid bookshelf speakers in a small package

I bought these speakers to replace two ancient AR's whose cones had finally expired and was delighted at the improvement in sound quality, for general listening and HD TV surround sound, in a package about half the size of their predecessors. Crisp highs and good bass. I wouldn't buy these if you want to break your lease or annoy your neighbors but for good, clear and undistorted (if unspectacular) sound these are fine. The attractive cherry wood cabinets are a bonus if you like the look of natural wood.

Very well rounded speakers

Bought these speakers to replace broken speakers for an old dusty bookshelf system RCA FS-1000. Made night and day difference; made the vintage system shine throughout even when pushed high or trickle low volumes. Very smooth through the highs and low ranges. I've hooked up various other speakers to this system before but never heard various subtle instruments in the background until this pair of RTiA1. Never thought much about the old system until this new pair of speakers were hooked up. Very pleased so far; now I very much enjoy the nice softer music while relaxing in the evening or punch it up to power through the workday. Nice thing is I know these speakers will shine even more once I replace with a better receiver. Money well spent.

Excellent Finish Quality and Sound

Speakers are excellent and far superior to the BOSE they replaced (Note: BOSE were 15 years old so not really a fair comparison) however I'm a bit of an Audiophile and these speakers are fantastic.

I can hear trailing sound

I had a nice speaker Bose v201 before which is great but this one is little more expensive. It is crisp and high clarity compare to that. and surprise me I can hear trailing sound which I didn´t before from the same music and it is solid ending note!

Amazing speakers

What can I say but purchased these speakers for my office and they just blew my mind. I bought these on sale but are worth it even at regular price. The cherry finish looks amazing also

These are excellent speakers at a bargain price. Extremely pleased with the clarity, build quality, and overall sound of these speakers.

Great Value

I purchased these on sale. Great sounding little speakers. Not going to produce rumbling bass tones but provide very clear bright sounding mids and highs. Plus they look great, come well packaged and delivered promptly by Canada Post. Thank you Best Buy and Canada Post!!!

Cherry POLK RTI A1

First off, these little cherry beauties are a work of art. I have owned speakers by BMW, Mission, Energy and several other names. These are by far the best looking speakers I have owned. The veneer is outstanding, you will want to display them and show all who will take the time to check them out. I have a small listening room and found the bass was a little boomy at first. I had the RTI A3s for an 11 day period and found them to have too much bass (even after a proper break in). Thanks to Best Buys return policy, I switched them out for these and was originally thinking I would have to return them as well. After a proper break in period, 5 straight days of alternating volume levels, these units came to life. The bass tightened up, the treble, a bit etchy at first, is now a buttery smooth. I cant wait to sit in the sweet spot and just listen, my old CDS are new again. Placement was pretty easy, plopped them in the usual spot, moved them a couple of times and the imaging locked in. I cant say enough good things about these. I bought these on sale and have 0 regrets. A great buy when on sale!!
