I have narrowed by search and I am going to go with one of these. I am going to get Polk RTiA7s to use with my existing CS400I, PSW 125 sub, RT25i surround and Monitor 30 rears.

I do not see much of a difference in the spec sheets that I read for the 3313 over the 4311 except for 125 vs 140 wats and the Audyssey MultEQ XT in the 3313 and Audyssey MultEQ XT32 in the 4311.

The 4311 seems to be a buy right now it is only a few hundred over the 3313. Will I notice the difference? Is it worth the extra money?

I have an Onkyo TXSR605 right now I know either would be a decent upgrade. Thanks for your help.

I would spend the extra money and get the 4311. I was really interested in the 3313 when it was first announced but when it was reported it did not have XT32 I went with the 4311. The difference between XT32 and XT is significant so I feel the added expense is well worth it.

As Bill has stated "The difference between XT32 and XT is significant so I feel the added expense is well worth it." and MANY certainly would agree!

The other "BIG" thing that is "VERY" significant is that the 4311 can EQ "(TWO) subs simultaneously and that can be potentially EXTREMELY effective at evening out various room modes throughout the listening space. The potential to more evenly distribute bass throughout the room via using TWO subs can not be overlooked! eek.gif
