Hi everybody smile.gif I am buying a new fronts and I am thinking about center speaker too. (I would use old speakers as surround as they are not that important to have matched with fronts).

Problem is space for me (http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/166/repro1.png), I would have to move desk lower to make space for center speaker and buy holder for LCD. So I am thinking if I need center speaker. I tried small speaker as center and only difference was that all dialogs were from center - it was easier to hear dialogs. But that's all? Without center speaker the voices do not comes from monitor but from space arround me.

I am just thinking if it is worth it.. Seller from who I plan to order speakers told me that he thinks in that small space it is not worth buying center. But I heard difference with it

How far away do you sit from the display when watching? If you're not right up on it, the "phantom" center effect should work pretty well for you (with you MLP being centered between the FL/R).
