    I've decided to put my HSU VT-12 on sale at ebay. I am not really impressed with it's sound quality despite some good reviews. Now I am trying to decide on what speakers to get. I will be using this on my Panny XR50 receiver.

    For now my plan is to just go with a 3.1 system. My choice is between:

    2 Primus 250 floor standing with a C25 center
    2 Polk R50 floor standing with a CS1 center

    I am also considering the Infinity Primus Home Theater Pack.

    Please help me choose. I will use it 95% of the time for movie watching. Also, is the Polk CS1 the matching center for the R30's?

    Thanks!!!

    I would go with Infinity 250/C25, but I'd also get some bookshelves for surrounds. The R50's are nice for the price (when on sale at Fry's for $99) but I'd need a better center than the CS1, which is matched in sound with the R50/30's but not value IMO. I just think the Primus line is a tad bit better than the R line.
