I asked if it was brand new and what their contact phone number is. They have never responded. That tells me if there are issues the customer service would be non existent. In the contact us section they state "We'll be waiting for your email or your phone call". I could not find a phone number on the site and under contact us they have an email address under the phone section. Buyer beware on this one I would think.

That said, I've considered keeping my primus setup for a little while longer and put in another room. Does anyone know of any legit places that still carry the PC 351 center in new condition? Will that center match with the tower 360's I have as they are one of the first generation towers?

Thanks!

You should be fine using a PC 35x + the 360s ( I was running a PC350 plus the original 360s)
They timbre match fine & your AVR speaker setup program should get you a good match. Still hanging onto mine even though not using them currently, every once in a while I pull out my Chanes & set the Primus back up. They still have that "something"

Thanks for the info!

Seems like the well has dried up for these. Havn't seen any reputable dealers carrying them any more. A lot of inflated pricing from private sellers.

Seems like Ebay or Craigslist are the only sources left these days. Kind of surprised how Harmon completely dropped support for these very popular speakers. Try looking for replacement parts...

Thanks for the suggestions!
I'm not sure about a reference center matching well. Oddly that's a line that Harman/Infinity didn't really promote that much. What little I've seen in the way of reviews sounds like it's a nice little step up though. There's hardly any info out there. I think Harman is counting on the Revel Concerta2 series to be the affordable upgrade.

It's all good. I have the C25 now and it has served well for many years so we'll stick with that.

Thanks!

Anyone know where I can find some p153 or p163 speakers, used or refurb is fine?
Just got a new Avr and can add front height speakers now and I assume I should match them to my p363s and pc351. Thanks!
