It does not look like anyone is sharing their experience, so I will since I have sat in both.
The Palliser overall makes very good quality recliners. The Hi-Fi is one for the several models that I would probably recommend in terms of comfort and looks.
On the other hand, it is not fair comparison of this chair and Escape-1019, which regardless of comfort and looks, which are both very subjective, has way more features including powered headrest, arm storage compartment and aluminum tray, Buttkicker ready feature, USB port., integrated power cup holder.
I'd say that comfort wise they may be similar with the Palliser being slightly firmer, but in terms of head support, and many other listed above features there is no comparison...
