Need you input on a new setup
 
My Klipsch computer speakers are acting up on me after almost 2 years of decent service and its time for an upgrade.

I personnaly haven't seen (heard) a good computer speaker system that I really liked, even the $500 5.1 or 7.1 systems.

So I decided to just get a cheap amp $200-$300 and a $400 book shelf speaker.

I did some online reviews and found a lot of people liked the Energy Reference Connoisseur 2-Way Bookshelf Speakers (RC-10), apparently they used to be $799 when they came out, now they are $400.

I heared these units side by side with vs the Polk Audio RTi A1 and I liked the Polk a lot more. The highs were much cleaner and crisper. So I am thinking of getting the Polk unts.

As for recievers, there really are only two units that seem ok for my price range and requirements.

1. Pioneer VSX-818V. I like the built in iPod connector and it has the coax digital in so I can feed the digital signal from my mother board.

2. Yamaha RXV363. This seems like a more "pro" unit but it lacks the built in iPod. This also has the coax digital input.

I really don't need a fancy expensive systems. The primary need for this setup will be PC sound which will include lots of music and some movies. I don't plan to have a surround sound in my bedroom but I might add a sub in the future.

Please chime in if you have any suggestions...

We sell more Polks than all other brands combined.

I think they are an outstanding value in all price point areas.

I have LCIs and myself LSIs and have NEVER had a customer who was not happy with Polk in 5 years.

I even have SRs in my Blazer.

'Nuff Said.

Cool... Do you think the price point between the RTi A1 and LSi 7 is worth the performance?

I am leaning towards the RTi A1 because thats all I've heard from the Polk line.

LSIs are fantastic speakers. I had RTi12s and went to LSi/LCi265s in walls. Never looked back.

Find your best prices and PM me, maybe I can hook ya up.
