I was able to do a direct comparison, at my house, of the Polk (m60s) and the Infinity Primus P362s (same speaker as the 363, but some cosmetic differences and cheaper price), last fall. I can tell you that both are good speakers for the money...Polks slightly brighter, and better mids, the Infinities better bass and more dynamic (and more sensitive). After the comparison at my house, I decided they were "even" and I would purchase the speaker that was cheapest, which was easily the Polks. Price being equal, I would have gone with the Infinity...but there was just under 100 dollars per speaker differences in price at the time between the M70s and Infinty p362s, not to mention those were listed as "out of stock" by suppliers who had free or cheap shipping.
After purchasing a set of Polks m40s (old house didn't have room for towers, I moved and bought the EMP E5ti towers, for 275/pair...way better, IMHO, than either the Polks or the Primus line, especially for HT applications!
