I was given a pair of NHT 2.5i's. I would like to complete a surround setup but am not sure how the items for sale now will match up. Does anybody have experience using a Classic 3 center and bookshelves to complement 2.5 or 2.9 speakers?

Will do...but I was trying to get a user perspective on trying to timbre match by mixing the lines rather than a sales person that represents the brand.

I would think the NHT folks would know more about the timbre match than anyone else!

I had VT2's followed by 2.9's... followed by C4's. The best center, if you can find one, is the AC-2. I had one a few years ago and paid $400 for it. I sold it 3 years later for $450. That's how good this speaker was/is. Even Jack Hidley has endorsed it as such.

They would work well with the 2.5's, but not the 2.9.

The 2.9's along with the AC2, 3.3, VR3, VT3, VC3, M5 and M6 all share a similar crossover design which has the upper-mid and tweeter operating in reverse polarity... this would pesent some severe phasing issues when used with the 2.5's or the classic Series.

NHT CLASSIC FOUR's Front & Rear, CLASSIC 3C, Classic 12 Sub, Panasonic TC-P65VT30, DVD-3800BDCI, HD-XA2, SONY TA-P9000ES Preamp, BRYSTON and Marantz Amplifiers...

i have 2.9 n m5 both , i would say 2.9 can't match m5 , 2.9 was much more forward and m5 was backward . i guess you should find ac1 ac2 in eabay .
