I had 2, HS40s with the 225C before and I could hear the difference between them as sound shifted across. I can't tell with the 3, 260s. Part of my likes it, part of me doesn't. It really makes me realize how much comes out of the center now because I rarely can tell if the L/R are kicking in.
If your front 3 speakers are level matched, then they should be working
properly. The center channel does carry the weight. And also, depending
on the source or DSP mode, the center will stand out more.
I am using the VS240 as a center with the 260, and they blend well.
I may or may not get the 325C. For me, I want the front 3 channels
to blend togther, and play on an even plane. With the 3 260's - you
should have the ideal set up and blend - distraction only happens for
me, when there is no dynamic or dimensional balance - and that will
happen if the speakers are not timbre matched, or placed right - and
if the timbre match center channel, was not engineered properly.
However, I do reccomend the 260 or 325C for center use, over the 240.
It takes more power to drive the 240.
