This center speaker is better than I thought it would be, a vast improvement over my previous setup (Mordaunt-Short Carnival series). Movie dialog & tv sounds just great! Cherry veneer is attractive, really looks like real wood! Silver face is a bit overwhelming & if I were to buy this again, it'd be the Series II black face, but otherwise this speaker is a real bargain for the price & performance.398
