Polk Audio was showing a number of new speakers at CES. First, they have redone their midrange RTi line of speakers, which feature new drivers, new tapered enclosures and a new port design. The line features 3 towers, RTi A9 ($1750/pr, RTi A7 ($1170/pr) and RTi A5 ($950/pr), and 2 bookshelf speakers, RTi A3 ($470/pr) and RTi A1 ($350/pr). The RTi line will become available in May.
