Which one is better considering a 50% music and 50% home theater?

I'm planning a 5.1 setup for my small living room. It's maybe 12' x 18' and extends to an open kitchen.

The ML Motion 10 is $119 from Newegg right now and the P363 is $99 from Frys at the moment. Which one is a better choice?

I currently have two primus p150 bookshelves but one of the grills is broken so if I plan to keep that, I'll need to get a new one. Everything else will have to be bought. Thanks.

Can you listen to them both? I personally like the sound of the folded ribbon tweeter for music in the Motion 10, but the Primus is no slouch.. You really should try to listen to them if possible as they are different sounding speakers.

Yeah that's what I plan to do as well but I can't seem to find a retailer that sells the motion 10. Best Buy's lowest model is the 12 and the reviews seem to say that it is quite different.

Amazon is selling the Motion 10 for $160 each right now. IMO it is very good for that price; hard to beat.

I'd get the P363's - $99/ea is a stupid good price.

I think you missed the part where he said Newegg is selling them for $119 each.

Actually $99 each with the promo code MALO83 thru Sunday.

I guess you missed the part where he said he couldn't find ANY retailer that was selling them....right before my message (post #3...). That is what I responded to.

I guess he meant a LOCAL retailer, so he could audition personally.

Yeah I stopped by best buy and frys but both of them cleared out the motion 10 and 12's a while back. The primus was in an open demo so I couldn't get a real good feel for it with all the noise going on. I will probably pick up the p363's since the matching surrounds and center are way cheaper.

I think you will be happy with the Infinity's. For that price, you really cannot go wrong.

Anybody here think the infinity p363 is better than Polk audio monitor 60's or are they both pretty comparable?
