Dialogue clarity is hugely affected by room acoustics, so while you may need a new centre speaker, that’s probably not the whole story.
Thanks for all the replies. So, after getting the green light from the Mrs, I'm ready to buy.
Unfortunately, I can't find any dealers that have MA Silver's (200's or 300's) in stock for me to listen to. Very frustrating
It just means I'm going to have to gamble and buy without listening first. As I already own an older set of MA Bronze bookshelf speakers and have been very happy, it's a gamble I'll take.
On my previous message I gave the dimensions of my living room and it roughly equates to a little under 4,000 cu ft.
I've decided to purchase two Silver 300's and a Silver C350 center. I'm also going to purchase a new AV amp, either a nice Marantz or a Denon as I've always liked these brands. Looking to spend something like $1,500 on the amp.
I'm going for a different brand of sub, and the rears/ceiling speakers I will have to buy later.
Does anyone have a recommendation of dealers in the USA that have given you a great discount and also great customer service?
This is going to be a stretch so anything I can save on the cost would be great. If it helps, the Mrs is a US Navy Veteran so maybe some MA dealers you know of might offer a veterans discount.
Thanks in advance!
