    Ah, gotcha.

    I'm no audiophile, so take this with a grain of salt: The GoldenEar is a knock-out compared to the 520. Everything has just a bit more weight to it through the SuperCenter, and I'm sure that has to do with the passive raidators built in.

    The 520 has crisper sound quality but, this speaker isn't broken in yet and I haven't had much of a chance to really give it a run for its money. From what I've read, it struggles to keep up with the larger speakers in that lineup (580, 590), but I won't even listen to stuff near reference where I'm at right now. Plus, it's more of a placeholder anyway.

    Supposedly, the end-all be-all center speaker is the Ascend Horizon with RAAL Tweeter. I almost bought one a couple of years ago, but decided I didn't want to drop almost $2k on the center channel alone if it meant a very expensive upgrade path to get matching speakers for the rest of the room.

    Actually wanted to hear what you thought about the Center vis-a-vis the JBL 520
