Sorry for the late response.
I have the Denon 4300 (see signature for setup) and I've increased center channel dialogue for both sets of center channel speakers I've used to suit my taste. I go back and forth with the "medium" audio compression setting, mainly at night to not disturb the Wifey, but when I am home by myself, I turn off the audio compression setting, so I get the original audio, so if this is something you may do, then a better center channel may be the answer. Prior to getting the the LSi center channel, I used the CSi5 center channel and as CousinMose stated it could fill a room with no problem, so I assume the newer version of that speaker should be at least the same if not better. The CSi5
speaker allowed you to set the speaker flat or flip it and have it angle up at you, which is how I had mine because it sat below the TV (bottom level of the tv stand in the avatar photo) when I had my TV on a stand. The A6 has the same construction as the CSi5. I've placed the TV on the wall and moved the new center channel to the top level of the stand where the TV sat and now it's pretty much at ear level when seated (see avatar photo).
Also, I'd make some of the adjustments the Chi-guy stated in his post to see if there's any improvements, the main thing being to make sure the center channel is pointing at you and not your feet, legs or midsection. However, as they say with muscle cars, there's no replacement for displacement (i.e. there's no replacement for a better center channel), so I'd consider a better center channel if those tweaks don't satisfy you.
Personally, I want the best center channel I could afford and let those tweaks be the icing on the cake, knowing the center channel could handle the dialogue without requiring any tweaks. But, I've even read where some folks like a phantom center channel - not for me, except when playing 2ch music.
Do you have photos of your setup? It may be easier to spot some improvements if we can see what you're working with.
