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
