    I'm looking to buy an RC-3 to upgrade my current center channel (my systems weak link -- an Infinity minuette center). I've already upgraded my mains, and I test drove the RC-3 at the local store to hear how it sounds out of a comparable receiver and was pleased.
    But, I'm more interested if any of you have experienced any problems with the RC-3 or Klipsch in particular, or have any particular praise for their reference series line.

    I have Klipsch Reference all around in my system. My ONLY gripe would be the size and weight of these speakers. As for sound quality, I can find no faults.

    Richard,
    I too have the Klipsch reference series all around. I love the sound from my Klipsch speakers. I feel that the RC-3 is an outstanding center channel speaker.

    another thumbs up on the RC-3. I upgraded from an Infinity Video 1 and it is SUCH a big difference. Very happy, no regrets.

    You didn't mention what you upgraded your mains to.
    You may want to compare it with them.
    I just recently purchased a pair of RF-3's, an RC-3, and two pair of RS-3's, and I must say I am very happy with this setup.
    Now I just need to wait until sept 10th for the RSW series of subs to complete the package.
