Mixing Polk Audio series, TSI300 with Csi A3
I recently bought a new center channel, the CSi A4. I was running a full JBL setup but when I went to a flat screen, I needed to add some better mids and highs to the center. The CSi A4 filled that gap pretty well, but leaned more towards the highs, so I left my old center in play as well. I know this is a stupid setup, but it gives me a bit more depth.
So, in an effort to fill the gap between the sub and highs even better (while removing the second center speaker), I'm contemplating replacing my bookshelves with the Tsi300's.
I can't afford the Rti A5's, so I figured I'd look at the next level down, Tsi.
After listening to them in the store, they sound like they will add the ranges I want to add.
I'll deal with the rear surrounds at a later date.
What I'm using now:
Front: JBL E20
Center: Polk Audio CSi A4 (was running JBL CS25)
Rear: JBL E10
I was also contemplating getting the RTi A1's for the fronts to add the brightness that the CSi A4 added. The low-mid and high that the TSI300's put out is hard to ignore though. I haven't found a place to hear the RTi A1's compared to the TSI300's to tell for sure how different they sound. My guess is though that the RTi A3's would be a better choice. May try to find a place that has all 3 so I can hear them side by side before I buy anything.
Anyway, I was curious if anyone else had mixed like I'm thinking of doing. How well do they blend?
