Bottom Line:   
If you get the chance, these will probably change your life. They are worth every penny. Properly setup there's nothing that can touch these speakers. Everything you read is true. I'm running mine with an Anthem pre2lse and crown drivecore 1502 along with a Dayton audio 10" active sub. The combination is stunning.

I've heard nothing else vintage that can image, thump, voice, soundstage like the Renaissance 90. I paid $2000 for my pair and wouldn't consider selling for twice the price, as a matter of fact mine will never leave until I pass. I'm somewhat limited in my experience and without reservation I can say I've heard nothing at the big box stores that come even remotely close to these.

Simply put, breathtaking is the word.

Put on your favorite music, and get lost in the sound. Properly powered everything is bliss.

I believe everyone here is correct when they say you'd have to spend a lot of cash to equal these. There's a few pairs on ebay, if you can swing the asking price, probably the last speaker you will buy.

They work equally as well for home theater and tv.

I'm being always amazed.
They are THE speakers.
One of the last survivors by true Infinity's.

Mine are driven by Accuphase E-407 and some Neotech cables.
Music, people!

Bottom Line:   
When correctly driven, these are the very Best Speakers money can buy. Certainly very best I've ever heard. And I've heard them many, including at least 10-20x more expensive Wilson Audio Maxx 3 driven by DCS Vivaldi and top VTL amps, the system one of my friend owns.
It took me long road to find out what is the best support for the REN90. But finall result is
far above what I've ever expected.
Actually using them in the 35m2 living room in the system consists of Denon SACD player upgraded with direct passive output (Lundahl stepup transformers - wow!) alternatively sourced by LUXMAN PD-444 deck (SME3012 & Dynavector DV-505, various MC/MM carts and SUTs). Amplifying starts in amazing Marantz Model 7c (alternatively Luxman CL-360 or CL-36) all tube preamp. Signal is then splitted in amazing Luxman A-2003 8xECC82 tube active crossover setup in the 2 way mode(3 way is possible if needed).
Then signal is biamped in the power stage consist of another tube beast, Audio Research D-150 driving upper 200-40.000Hz range. Finally Pioneer SPEC-4 (only transistor amp in my system) is the best solution for amazingly deep but perfectly controlled and super tight bass (up to 200Hz).
A can not explain in the words, how proud, satisfied and happy I'm with the sound now!
Great thanks Infinity guys for neverending audio nirvana and astonishing products like Renaissance 90!!!

After years of listening to the Infinity Kappa 8.1i this speaker was the next step in improving the sound of my system. Everything sounds better that the Kappa 8.1i. Still driven by two Rotel RB980 power amps in mono mode they deliver a great deep and precise bass (not as boomy as the Kappa 8.1i which sound rather like a home cinema speaker) and extremely precise highs and mids. The infinity planar emit and emim are extremely great drivers and work perfectly together with the 10 inch watkins bass. Great combination. Very great speakers that would probably cost more than 10k nowadays!

The Renaissance is a speaker that plays in a complete different league compared to the Kappa systems I should have bought them earlier.. And they are availabe to an almost ridiculous price today. The speakers reveal every weaknesses of the source - this makes you seriously think about your taste of music :-) The best buy I ever made. Although some people say they do not need much power to be driven: they love strong power amps.
