Just arrived yesterday, its bigger and heavier than I expected...

The most refined and best sounding Confidence Center ever......

The Confidence Center ensures multi-channel performance on the same highest sound quality level of the Confidence range. It integrates two perfectly matched Esotar² tweeters and two mid/bass drivers, specifically positioned to achieve a controlled sound dispersion. The extremely rigid cabinet construction features an integrated adjustable plinth to precisely angle the Center.

With the advanced latest fine-tuning, the new Confidence Center II is the best sounding and most refined Confidence Center ever.

I was very happy for a month...sad to say my cousin fell in love with center speaker...he made me an offer that i cannot refuse ...I have no choice but to let go...The good news is that I am upgrading my center to Ddynaudio Confidence MKII.... My Next step for upgrade is to get another JL Fathom f13. Carry Cinema 12 has only one XLR sub out, so I ordered a Y sa transparent (balance XLR to split the sub out), in order for me to drive the 2 subs on (2) two different frequencies, it was also suggested by Barrry of JL Audio (according to the designer making one sub a slave to the other is a NO...NO, they only recommend slave connections for studios)... I am also upgrading the amps soon in preparation for Dynaudio Confidence C4 MKII, and lastly for Video another Oppo will be added this Dec BDP-103...Cheers wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

* Yes the breaking stage, it works wonderfully, music begins to bloom after the speakers are broken in and they sound warmer and less stingy.

Wow! You put int a lot of money into your bedroom!! Although I cannot blame you as I actually went ahead and did something similar and spent a lot money putting a movie projector in my bedroom! The bedroom is the heart of the house man! Many people neglect the bedroom! It is time to start beefing up all bedrooms out there lol !!!!!
