    Default Csi3 or Cs1?

    hey, I work at circuit city and get nice accomodations from polk. Even though i get a lot off, im still on a tight budget (all because cc pays crap nowadays with no commision) so i am getting the monitor 50s and have r15 as rears and a velodyne vrp12. On the accomodations, there were two centers, both for under 100 dollars. They are the csi3 and cs1. Now since the csi3 are made for the rti series, will it work fine with the monitor 50s (I really wanted the rti8s but were an extra 160. which is a lot for me.) ?

    The CSi3 is a little better than the CS1, but the CS1 is the better match for your speakers. If i was you i would probably just go wtih the CSi3 since it is the better speaker. (CS1 is no slouch though)

    I would say just go CS1, I always like a timbre-matched front soundstage.

    Besides getting the CSi would make me just flare up my upgraditis.
