Are they warm sounding speaker? How is the matching center channel performance? Please don't refer me to read this thread as there are only a few 918s left in my city, and I need to buy a pair today or tomorrow. Thanks.
I agree they aren't the warmest speaker out there.
You may also want to check out B&W. When I was auditioning speakers I found them more laid back and, well, warmer.
Having said that, I would be surprised if you didn't like them. They are a great speaker, especially for that price. I was in the same situation....I got the 918's in Signature and got a great deal because that finish was also being phased out. I had 2 days to decide. I;m glad I pulled the trigger. Just need to find some better gear now.
As far as the centre goes, I love mine....very accurate. I like that it is a true 3-way design.
