How does the Polk RTI series compare versus the Infinity Primus line?

More specifically
Rti a5 mains csi a6 center and fxi a6 surround
Versus
P363 mains ps351 center and 163 surround

The Infinity line would save me around $350. Using the same dual psw505 subs with either setup.

I have only heard the Infinity fronts, but I've heard all of those Polks. I think the 363's are slightly better, especially in the low end (but the A7's are much better than both). The Polk center and surrounds are great though!

Well I actually already have all the polks and now I just ordered the Infinity 363s as they were 107 a piece shipped but deciding which ones I should use as the main system in my living room. I am thinking of using the Polks as my main system surround sound and using the 363s as a 2.0 system in my bedroom.

That sounds like the best choice, especially if you are already using the Polk center since you should always try to voice match your front soundstage. I think the 363's would be better in a 2.0 system due to the better low end. Enjoy!
