This may sound a bit like a Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 review, but read on, be patient, and you'll see where I'm going with this...

When researching which new speakers to buy, I read a number of reviews. I eventually waffled between the Wharfedale Diamond 10.1s and the Polk RTi A1s - both overwhelmingly favorably reviewed. In the end, I decided to take a chance on the Wharfedales. I spent hours trying to find them for sale online in the US, finally did find them, and made the purchase. There are no dealers that carry them in Oklahoma, and due to a lack of Stateside online retailer options, I paid full price, which made me a little nervous. To make matters worse, the day after I purchased the Wharfedales, Amazon slashed the price on the Polks by $75. Not wanting to pass on a great deal and knowing I could return whichever speakers I liked the least, I went ahead and got them too. The speakers arrived within a day of each other, and the first thing I did was test them in head to head competition to see if I had chosen wisely. Kind of fun, and quite revealing...

The Diamond 10.1s totally exceeded my high expectations and validated the flowery reviews I had read. These speakers not only look fantastic, more importantly, they also sound phenomenal. Even with a premium Onkyo receiver, I couldn't turn the volume up high enough to distort the tight, controlled, and vibrant sound emitted from these speakers before they blew out my ear drums. Simply amazing.

The Polks are also superb and performed nearly on par with the Wharfedales. When compared back to back, the Polks were ever so slightly brighter and harsher, if that makes sense. The Wharfedales seemed warmer and more refined; just as hard hitting, but more capable when handling the softer stuff.

I researched bookshelf speakers for two months. I wanted a speaker that would fill the room with clean, rich sound for all types of music, especially jazz, classical, bluegrass, and rock. Everything sounds great on these speakers. I had Boston Acoustic floor speakers. I still love the the BAs, but I have not lost anything with the Polk and I have gained space. The speakers sit on top of a bookcase, about 6' off the ground, in a 14' x 14' room. I could not be happier.

Beautiful speakers that fit my theme perfectly with the cherry wood color. These were larger than I anticipated but I can't complain!

I was already familiar with the quality and value of Polk Audio products and particularly appreciate Polk is based in Baltimore, MD. I still own and have enjoyed my Polk RT10 tower speakers for the past 14 years. These RTI A1 speakers Polk Audio RTI A1 Bookshelf Speakers (Pair, Cherry) were purchased to replace my Bose cube satellites and Acoustimass subwoofer module which I have gotten really tired of due to their lack of musicality and the overall richness of sound I had become so accustomed to getting from my towers. After reading all of the user (thank you, again, Amazon customers!) and a good number of expert reviews, and not really having room in my new residence for my towers, I chose to go with these for the price point, flexibility and quality everyone claimed they offered. I took them out of the box and were truly impressed with the awesomeness of the real Cherry wood finish. Exquisite! The overall shape of the unit (not boxy but curved toward the rear for acoustic reasons) was extremely beautiful. They were solid, not overly heavy or bulky and could easily be placed on a bookshelf. They can also be placed directly on the wall via the enclosed screws and the hook located on the rear port hole cover. However, when placed on my newly purchased Vantage Point adjustable speaker stands Vantage Point SSB-30BB Adjustable Bookshelf Series Speaker Stands they are stunning to behold and allow for the flexibility of placement I desired.

Now for the rest of the story.

I also own the previous generation RTi6 bookshelf speakers by Polk and was able to do a direct comparison. The 6s have larger drivers so their slight mid-bass advantage is to be expected, but in all other ways the RTi A1 is an improvement. The sound projects further outside of the cabinets, or rather the cabinets disappear and throw a great, wide sound-field outward. Instruments sound like they should, male voices aren't nasal or chesty, and the highs are soothing rather than sibilant and tinny (as the previous RTis could get under pressure). I have never heard a speaker this nice at a price this low.

I received these speakers about a week ago and have to say, they sound amazing! They are built of quality materials and feel very sturdy. I originally wanted the cherry wood but was afraid it wouldn't match our other furniture, I'm glad I chose the black. My Onkyo 607 had the optional bi-amping for these speakers so I removed the gold connecting bar and utilized this option. I was torn between these and the A3's, I'm glad I chose these because I can't imagine the sound and clarity being any better.

I highly recommend these speakers to anyone wanting a serious home theater sound for a descent price!
