If you plan on keeping these for a while I'd see if you can swing this route for a a bit more money but it's worth it jumping up to their 2nd best line which is getting phased out now. Go to their official ebay polk store and get their refurbs which are obviously perfect coming from the company itself which includes 2 years warranty and no tax/shipping:

The RTiA line is respectable and considered the ones to get if you're going polk unless you're rich and go the LSi route If not get another brand. I got got KEF's 300q today and there are no words that can describe coming from my ancient Monitor 50's to them and understand what hi-fi means now. Same thing when I got a steal on the 30 pound Rtia CSiA6 center for under $200 replacing the CS1. My timbre match is messed up now but I'm not upset.

CSiA4 BLACK RTiA Center Channel - $174.99
RTiA1 BLACK 2 Way RTi Bookshelf Speakers PAIR - $224

I checked Amazon and the CSiA4 is $150 new. Now that's a steal and probably front page worthy.

Bought both a pair of 330t's and a 250c on a deal last month @ 89ea and 109. These are solid performers for the price. I also purchased a psw505 in conjunction and am beyond satisfied. Tried to pick up 220b's last week for surrounds, but nobody is carrying them any longer.

Most would say go with the AJ Pioneers. They're truly exceptional at their price point. Ultimately, try to audition both if you're not sure.

For what it's worth, Toptenreviews.com puts these ahead of the AJ's. They place these at 8th place vs 10th place for the AJ's and they state that these are the best pair of floorstanding under 500 at the time of review. The differences between the two are likely not too significant. I'm sure you'll be pleased with whichever of two you decide on. With that being said, is one more aesthetically pleasing to you?

Yeah I grabbed the AJ's back in late June with the Frys deal, still waiting for them to ship. Will probably just keep that order then. Thanks!

Probably the same Aesthetic wise, maybe slight advantage to these. Have the AJ's on backorder. These are such a great price but will probably just keep the original order. Thanks for the input.

Uh, I don't see anything remotely close to $150 for TWO floorstanding speakers.. everything I see is at least $150 EACH.. which is hardly "a bit more money".

It's a good deal, but if you're going to have something for 10 years you can put the extra $75 in perspective then. Maybe there's a misconception that bookshelves won't be able to keep up with floorstanding in the bass department or cranking it to crazy levels but that's not the case and both the opposite between the two.

If it's about the bass, the 330t's are known as very muddy and distracting where the RTA1's have 2 ports in a power port in the back and a regular one in the front to provide deep yet accurate bass along with their Acoustic Resonance Control which along with the power port including real wood makes it not sound muddy I take it and why it's the next step up, and of course the specs are night and day which = more $$$$ The extra woofer on the 330 isn't going to do anything when the source isn't that good in the first place and another big thing is future proofing because you can throw the bookshelves for surrounds/rears/height/wide no problem. I have no use for my Monitor 50 towers now and will probably give them away.

Here's a review from one of the most respected: stereophile.com/standloudspeakers/908polk/index.html

BTW: I just copy/pasted the text from the Polk site so when PAIR was in caps I could see how it looks almost sarcastic or I had the misconception that these weren't also a pair.
