LOL.....I have enough skin in my own game!
What do you think about putting the center channel under the TV where the 3311 currently is? The V5.2C is 19.5" w x 7.6" h.
I've been reading back through your posts. I've never listened to polk speakers except for the base models in best buy. From that, and from what i have read others say, polk tends to be on the bright side and can be quite fatiguing to the ears when listening to music for any length of time.
The energy brand is known more for the smooth, well balanced sound. I have the RC-10's and the V5.1 bookshelf speakers. The RC-10's in my opinion are too laid back for music. The V5.1's are slightly brighter than the RC-10's and in my opinion have a very good balance of smoothness and dynamics. That being said....you stated that these will be used for 75% music which leads be to believe that the veritas would be a better match for your needs than the polks.
The 75t has a msrp of $500 where the V6.2 have a MSRP of $1200. The 75t's are approximately $200 each in the Newegg package, and the V6.2's are $300 at wwstereo. So I think the bang for the buck advantage goes to the energy's.
Regarding the subwoofer, I live in a condo as well. I have RC-30 fronts (play down to 40hz) and no subwoofer. In my condo, just the towers provide plenty of bass. I have a S10.3 sub which sits unplugged in my spare room because I would disturb the neighbors. My point here is that you may find that the V6.2's (play down to 33 hz) may provide enough bass that you dont need a subwoofer in your condo setup.
So there's my spiel.....I think you would be happier with the veritas and I think they are a better bang for the buck. But if you are happy with the sound of your current polks and you cant find a way to fit the V5.2C in your entertainment center, then go for the polks.
