I grabbed a pair of PB-3000’s in excellent shape for $1200 total....... been a few weeks and loving them. They didn’t have the port tube plugs, so I called SVS and they were in the mail same day. Awesome CS. Haven’t had the heart to plug them up yet.....
That was a great deal on those 3000's. Hope you got an answer on the one with the AMP. How are you enjoying the Canton speakers you have there? Any comparison to prior speakers you owned?

All depends, My youngest Son, started a setup for his son, my grandson, he is ten years old Big PS4 lil fellow. He has a Onkyo 656 AVR and two bookshelves. I am going to give my grandson my center, sub and my back surrounds. If I go with mains other than Polk 705's I'll use the RTi-5's in my bedroom.

Oh yeah, they're Solid speakers I forgot the 1st part of your question, I'll say this yep the they sound good at higher volume. From what I have read I can see why the ones who say no less than 200 watts. The sound stage doesn't collapse at higher volumes. Those who say brite topend yeah some but for me Source dependent, meaning older CD old rock yeah but not to where you get Fatigue. For Hi-Res that's where these Shine think Instrumental only music, Female voice like Diana krill or Karen Carpenter smooth very Detailed, Now I played Rush 2112 lil brite in the topend think screaming guitars. Pink Floyd Darkside of the moon off the chain sweet. So that's why I stated Source dependent. Well that could be said just about with any speaker. Subjective. Bass mid bass not boomy at all actually midbase is tight Accurate, lowend good better than I expected. HT use Excellent I have my cutoff at 80hzs on the AVR L/R set to full some say that's a no no for HT again Source dependent and some surround tracks just suck. But I have 4K disc movies for GOT and BladeRunner 2049 set mains to small and yeah really good tried mains set to full over powered center and surrounds. Sometimes surround feels like a crap shoot with older movies and blu-ray than 4K Hi-Res surround.
Than player Source dependent, I like to play around with tweaking but my Memory isn't what it used to be. Writing down everything now than it's like now where did I put those settings in that notebook? Anyways I still may jump on those Rti-a9's new 900 for the pair

He had to know wouldn't you think so? Those aren't your everyday run-of-the-mill speakers. That's why I asked, eBay craigslist local newspaper. Never feel bad they went to a good home, There's nothing sadder than a old pair of flagship speakers sitting in a goodwill store homeless.

Is the Concrete? looks like it
You are correct. I will enjoy these :)

So, you are now a Polkey?
Nah, I'm not married to one brand. I've owned many polks over the years.

I currently own LSi15, LSi7, (the LSi7 will be sold tomorrow) Polk SDA-2B, Klipsch KG3.2, Klipsch Forte gen1, Chane A1.5 and Power Sound Audio Speakers and Sub in my living room 5.1.2

So far my favorite Speakers are the SDA-2B they are very special. I can only imagine what the SRS sound like or the L800.
