Polk Audio - RTi A3 - Bookshelf Speakers
RTI A3 by Polk Audio
We nickname these speakers the "John Farnham series" due to the amount of times this classic series has made a comeback. Polk have tried to discontinue this series several times over the last few years only to receive a backlash of support from dealers and customers alike screaming for the continuation of such a well loved range of speakers. To their credit Polk listened and have kept them running along but Polk have now announced these will sadly no longer be continuing. The Audio Tailor have managed one last scoop buy of the rtia1 and rtia3 models and these will be the last ever stocks available. If youve been contemplating a set of these lovely speakers or are in the market for a great set of bookshelf speakers then please don't delay and put these on your shopping list. Not only do we have stocks but we have also managed some great deals on this iconic model. Get in quick as they simply will not last. by Stuart from The Audio Tailor
The proprietary curved, 6-layer DAHLI enclosure design creates the optimal shear damping for a more rigid, acoustically inert enclosure and minimal cabinet resonances. RTi A3 cabinets are designed for clean, accurate sound. Klippel motor optimisation uses laser measurement technology to ensure a smooth excursion path at either end of the volume spectrum for uniform performance at both low and high volumes. Polk’s proprietary, patented Dynamic Balance technology allows our engineers to design out distortion-causing driver and system resonances, so you only hear the good sounds. Durable, computer-modelled, injection-molded butyl rubber surrounds suppress unwanted cone resonances for a lifetime of reliable sound. The RTi A Cascade Tapered Crossover eliminates the comb filtering and beaming, common to multi-driver speakers, which degrades the quality of the audio and collapses the soundstage. Beautiful curved furniture-grade hardwood veneer cabinet finishes, with sleek trim accents in black or cherry. Computer-modeled anti-diffraction grilles enhance the good looks while minimising sonic interference. PowerPort® bass venting is our patented design for smoothly transitioning the air flow from the port into your listening area, eliminating turbulence and distortion, for bigger, more musical, deep bass impact. Our patented Acoustic Resonance Control® (ARC) port technology tunes out the internal cabinet resonances resulting in natural uncoloured midrange reproduction. All Polk loudspeakers are timbre-matched within their series, designed with the same components throughout, to achieve seamless speaker-to-speaker blending effects in multi-channel systems. Dual gold-plated, professional-style 5-way binding posts, for the most secure connection options. Dual binding posts allow bi-amp or bi-wire connections, for the ultimate in customised high performance audio. All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.
