While I have no experience with AJ center and only a brief experience with the BS22...I can confirm that there have been more than a few people who bought the AJ set that didn't like the center very much, based on complaints on AVS. However, the speaker set just isn't very sensitive, including the center, so I think that might be just one of those things were those movies that are a bit dialogue low, like Intrastellar, will be hard to listen to with that speaker set. I had to bump my EMP center up a couple dbs for that movie and I have done that before or since.
Dennis, sounds like your mods would improve clarity, but would they have any affect on sensitivity?
