Thanks. Do you know if Marantz SR6008 will power Polk Audio RTi A7's without issues ?.
Some guy's at the Polkaudio forums said that no receivers can power the RTi A7 without external amplification at higher volumes and there are chances that I could ruin the speakers by under powering it.
Per Polk the RT1 A7 is
Total Frequency Response 20Hz-27kHz
Upper -3dB Limit 26 kHz
Lower -3dB Limit 35 Hz
Nominal Impedance 8 ohms
Efficiency 89 dB

The Marantz will own those speakers.
Play it as loud as you want.
When your ears start to bleed turn it down a couple of clicks or turn it up a couple more depending on your mood.

Re: Need help selecting the right 5.1 speakers component ( Budget 1,043$ )

Guy's I've finally purchased it :-). Will be receiving it in 2 days. Excited !

This is my setup as below

Marantz SR6008 Receiver

RTi A5 , A1 , Csi A4 and DSW Pro 660 Wi Speakers.

The reason I didn't go with the A7 is that they had only 1 display piece which was slightly damaged and it would take a few months for them to get the new stock.

I heard the Andrew Jones Pioneer , they were good upto mid level volumes but once you increase above that it wasn't good.

The JBL Studio 1 series were good even with the relatively tiny subwoofer , they were really loud and slightly harsh.

The Polk Audio RTi's , just loved them mild and exactly right , the way I like it.

Also for speaker wires I couldn't find anything cheaper than a monster cable so had to go with it , but the good thing was I got it for free :-)

As for the subwoofer cable I have gone for something cheaper ( EQ 31 AC non-branded ) hope it doesn't affect quality.

I personally thank each and every one of you for your invaluable advise on this thread which has helped me immensely in making the right decision.

Really I owe you guy's a lot ,since you all made me sway around from purchasing a high end HTIB to a component system. If it wasn't for you all I may have just bought an expensive / overpriced HTIB.

Will be starting another thread soon so that you all can help me tune my system to make it sound perfect.

Love this forum and all you guy's. Thanks :-)

Hi, From where did you pick the RTi A5 , A1 , Csi A4 and DSW Pro 660 Wi Speakers in Kuwait. I am also actually looking out to set up a 5.1. Your feedback would be appreciated.
