I'm going to pull the Trigger tomorrow (Thanksgiving) on either the CSi3 or the TSx150.  Both have very positive reviews and physically, they'll both fit in the cabinet with about 1/2" height to spare.  Can anyone give me reason to NOT buy these.  Or why I should buy one over the other?  It seems like I can get either at a fair price right now.  Is the CSi3 an old model?  Is there a replacement model?

 

This is step #1 into my HT system.  I hope to buy Polk RTiA5 (or A7) speakers, or maybe TSx550's.  AVR will be a Denon X3000.


Thanks for any insights.  Being OCD really sucks sometimes!

Buy the center that will match your tower speakers. If you plan to buy the RTiA5 or A7 speakers then get the CSi3. Even better get the newer CSiA4 if you can find a good price.

If you plan to buy the TSx550 then get the TSx150.

The CSi3 is less than $90 tomorrow.  That's what got my attention.
