Also I think the sonic difference is more likely to happen by not keeping the center speaker in the same line. Is that correct?
Keeping the tweeters within 18" of each other vertically, across the front horizontal soundstage is best if you can at all rig it up that way.
I can't comment on your S center vs. the EC35 center, but I did recently upgrade my ES25C to an LC2 and very much like the improvement!
Better power handling, better midrange and bass (low frequency extension), and clearer dialog.
The only thing I was unprepared for was the LC2's lesser efficiency - which is odd because its spec'd at 92db sensitivity, whereas my older ES25C was supposedly a 90db speaker - but the LC2 needed some level boosting from my previous settings and seems to consume a lot more power than its efficiency rating would suggest.
The highs and mid highs of the LC2 are similar to my other ES series speakers which is good.
