    Default Center decision -- urgent(ish)

    I have a choice between a Swan CS3 or a Polk CSi5 to go with my RTi10s. Both used. Both the same price -- $275. I'm driving them with an Onkyo 805.

    I know it's a matter of taste and I should go with what I like best, but I'd appreciate people's opinions.

    If I'm going to buy either, I need to do it tomorrow, so any help would be appreciated.

    Right here.


    Though Swan is supposed to make great speakers, the CSi5 will be a perfect match to your RTi10's, and it is also a great speaker.

    I would go with the Polk CSi5, it's designed to be used with your RTi10's. for the same price.. why would you want to introduce another brand of speaker, esp in your front soundstage? if they were for surround sound duty... i wouldn't be to wigged out about it.

    it would bug me if I had a center ch speaker that was of another brand.
