I have a 235C that I am very happy with. I have a mix of Studio 2 and Studio 5, so I can't make the comparison you want. Of course, it matches my 230s. My primary use is for movies, and for this purpose, any mismatch with the 590s is so minimal that I have gotten used to it, that is if there actually is any. With this center, I can understand all the dialog in a movie, and this was my goal. When I get in a purist mood for music, I do not use the center, and the 590s provide a very nice center image.
The one thing that surprises many people is the size. This is a very large center, so make sure you have room for it.
