Wow! First word that comes to mind. I could not believe how much these speakers can put out. Not even loosened up yet, fresh out of the box, the clarity and the bass that these clearly render is spectacular. I only notice a difference compared to my RTI A9's in the really low frequency power, otherwise these are a lot. My system now consists of 6 pairs of these RTI A3 (front wides, side surround, rear surround), a pair of RTI A9 towers for side fronts, 6 RTI A6's (2 for center channels - above / below screen, 2 for Atmos front and 2 for Atmos rear). These absolutely sound unbelievable together as in a 9.2.4 surround system setup, the clarity and power is absolutely stunning. I am feeding my speakers power from 4 ATI amps. Even as stand alone computer speakers in a 2 speaker setup these RTI A3 will not disappoint. If you can assure clean accurate power to feed these they will vibrate the room despite only having the one 6.5" woofer per cabinet. Highly recommend, great value when on sale.

One word, awesome!!

Installed these as my height speakers for my 11.2ch system. I am using the Rtia9's for my fronts and the Csia4 for my centre. Sound is ultimate, and these 3's help fill the room. The cherry finish is well done and matches the others in the set. Way to go Polk!!

Wow, can't belive how good they are .

Very precision sound comes from these Polks . I am so surprised from other reviewers saying that , they are sounding too bright , they should say they sound too crisp , which in my opinion this is the way , and only way for first class speakers . If you are not used to listening clear sound , why don't you use equalizer in your amplifier and lower those trebles . For my ears I keep my trebles at max +10 , The bas it is amazing too in these speakers , no need subwoofer at all . Actually I need to lower the bas from my amplifier to +6 . My amplifier is Sony STRDH 550 . They broke-in very nicely playing extremely precision sound just after 3 hours . Thank you Mr. Polk for incredible sound . I love shopping at BestBuy , it is a pleasure and the customer service is just wonderful . I am highly recommending these speakers .

Great speakers

As soon as I set these up, I heard an immediate difference in sound quality. The look great, they sound great without being huge... Everything you need in a good speaker.

  • from Digby, NS

Tremendous value and sound.

OK, you can get better sound but not at this price point. I paired these up with my Yamaha RXV577 receiver before I configured my home theatre system just to test the quality. I played music from an I-Pod and the results were pretty impressive. The sound is amazingly clean and some people might not want that because it isn't as warm and fuzzy as you will get with other speakers. The clean sound is a product of the Yamaha as well but the results are very pleasing to my ear. The cherry finish and contoured shape are so beautiful that I didn't have the customary "You aren't putting those in the living room" line from my wife!

Fanfastic speakers

I bought these on sale from FS just before they closed and I'm glad I did. The build quality is first rate and perfect. The sound quality is amazing right out of the box so after break in they should be awesome. The soundstage and clarity are superb. I own paradigm and some other brands and these compete very well and in my opinion are better value for the money. I'm using them with a Pioneer Elite 2 channel receiver and it's mind blowing how good they sound. It doesn't matter what genre of music is put through them they do an incredible job . The bass, mids and trebles are adequate enough for me and probably for most people. A subwoofer really isn't needed for music listening since the bass is strong and clear. Extremely focused speaker. The highs are very strong so I had to lower the treble some compared to the Denon speakers they replaced. Trust me you will hear subtle details in music that other speakers just don't deliver as good. Full retail is a great price for these but if you're looking for a bargain they can be bought for much less. I highly recommend them or at least go and listen to them and judge yourself.

Polk hits home run with these.

Fantastic speakers for the money. Build quality is excellent . Great clarity and soundstage. Don't let the size fool you these have enough bass, mids and highs to satisfy all music lovers. I own and have owned very good speakers and these perform as well if not better. Only 2 hrs of listening to them out of the box and I'm amazed how good they sound. The cabinets are beautifully made and the finish is perfect. I bought mine on sale at FS before they closed but even at full price these are a good deal compared to other makes. These will not disappoint so I highly recommend them.
