Ok I am new here so be gentle. First off this is my first system in 12 years. I am adding a room that will be 14' wide x 20' long. I have the Receiver, a Denon AVR-1913. now for speakers. I purchased a Polk CS20 because hey for $39.99 I could not pass that up. I also purchased 4 Infinity Primus P153's intending those to be fronts and backs. I am curious though about getting some towers instead of the Primus 153's. I can get some Polk RTi8's for 164/each or some Infinity P363's for 117/each. Any advice on the direction I should go?

If you had the infinity center you would have a very nice and coherent system! too bad you have the polk one, can you get the matching towers?

I suggest the RTi8 speakers; they are pretty decent and will match up well with the Polk center speaker.

That is also a very good price for a speaker that sold for over $400 each recently. Supplies are pretty limited since they have been discontinued for a while, so don't think too long.

The sound quality of the Infinity speakers is not in the same league.

Well that's what I have done. Took the Infinity's back got the Polk RTi8's and the RTI4's for the back. Looking forward to firing it up. Now to get the room completed!

Thanks for the replies!

The cs20 is not timbre matched for the Rti speakers, so I would have disregarded that factor. I have heard both speakers, I would have gone with the Infinitys. I hate the Polk's tweeter at higher volumes, I also hate their new logo. The Infinity C351 center is much more powerful anyway.
