Greetings!

Happy 2019.

I have Jamo 807 towers for front L and R and Klipsch RC-62 for the center and so far they sound nice. But I hear some people say that don't mix the Cs and the fronts. I am not able to figure the difference. Tempted to replace the Jamo's with RF-82 ii. Your suggestions?
I still need to upgrade the rest, but for now, here is what I have:
Subwoofer is Polk PSW110 and rears are Panasonic with Yamaha HTR-4065 receiver.
The unit is a medium size family room with a high ceiling.


Best regards,
Max

If you enjoy the sound and can hear things clearly then I say leave well enough alone. You don't HAVE to have same brand model on front 3.

The reason to timbre match the front speakers is so the sound doesn't change as it pans across the speakers. When you hear something in the left that travels thru the center to the right, does it sound different when it hits the center speaker? And if so, does that bother you? If it is different AND it bothers you, get a matching center. If you like how it sounds now, don't worry about it. It is your system and only you have to be happy with it. Enjoy.
