    If you have a look on Unbeatable they still have them for £412-00, which is a great saving of nearly £200-00. As you know I have these and they are great speakers. If you decide to get them go for the CS400 centre, beware this centre is big. The CS245 is a great speaker but can get left behind by the 600's.

    :)

    There is also Sound and Vision Bolton

    Audiovision in Brighouse which are Polk Audio main dealers.

    Even at US prices you are still saving about £100 if you get them from Unbeatable, think the store in Brighouse has them for nearly £600.

    If you are near Wakefield come round I give you a demo.

    Ive dropped Audiovision an email requested models and costs. Ive got my eye on the following:

    RT600i
    RT800i
    RT1000i and the
    RT2000i

    Which do you suggest ? I would love the 2000i but im wanna keep some cash aside for centre and surround unless you can persuade me a little :)

    Also im looking at some speakers from Linn which have been getting rave reviews also. What do you think ?

    I cant find any contact details for Sound and Vision in Bolton do you know it ?

    Thanks for all your help

    From the demo I had between the RT600i and the RT800i the RT600i came out on top for me, they were more crisp and clear, the RT800i seemed a bit muffled.

    Heard the RT2000i, but these have subs built in and to be honest I think you can do a hell of a lot better with 2xstand alone subs, plus you are talking silly money for these models.

    As for Sound and Vision the last time I saw their ad was in one of the HC mags, that was a while ago.

    Don't think you can go far wrong with the RT6000i IMO.

    Thanks a lot. These will look awesome in my soon to be HC room. My whafedales are good but they lack the edge. What can you expect for £130 ?

    I'll have another look for Sound and Vison . I went onto Yell.com and Bolton has got a lot of sound and vision stores. do you know which part of bolton its in ?

    Thanks Again

    It's an old mag that I have so don't know if the number will be correct, 01204-707079 and 861861.

    Don't think you will beat Unbeatable's price for the RT600i anywhere.

    Good luck. :)
