What's goin on, people?
Just a lil over a month ago I was looking for suggestions regarding purchasing a HTIB, and ultimately decided to jump on the Onkyo HT-S7300, main reason being possible future upgrade options.
All works well so far as far as I can tell. HowEVER
I notice that the center speaker sounds extremely artificial. Almost sounds like the sound is coming out of a plastic box
The speaker as far as I know isn't defective. Music and gaming both sound pretty good.
The main problem is when watching a bluray or streaming Hulu content off the internet. (Anything that uses the center channel for speech)
The manual mentions a lot of functions (Dynamic Eq, Cinema modes etc.) but I can barely tell the difference when any of these are tweaked.
Is there a chance of replacing just THAT speaker to solve the problem, or is this something that will require a full replacement of both front ones as well (as that is usually the case when timbre matching speakers)?
Maybe tips on tweaking so that speech is less harsh??
I'd feel really crappy if after purchasing a very highly rated HTIB, Id have to take my entire system apart just because my center sound isn't up to par.
I can't imagine explaining this to gf who contributed to the purchase price.
Any suggestions on the ONE speaker replacement if it's even possible?
