My front setup consists of 2 Athena AS-F2s and my older Onkyo center that came with my original HTiB. The Onkyo is soo far behind the AS-F2s I completely shut it off because I felt it distracted from the movie that badly. I am running a 4.1 setup now. For my rears I am currently using the 2 original Onkyo fronts. I plan to upgrade my rears after I get my front soundstage squared away I'm assuming most of you will agree that for my center I definately need to go with a Athena speaker so everything is timbre-matched correctly. I'm cool with that. I know there is a debate as to which is a better speaker to use as a center with Athenas. I've read some people say the AS-C1 is actually outperformed by a AS-B1 or AS-B2 for a center speaker. Even after reading this, I'm still leaning towards getting a AS-C1 over a AS-B1 or AS-B2. Here's my question: should I go ahead and pick up a AS-C1 now for $140~$150 or wait until June 1 (when this link says an updated AS-C1 will be released). It says the new "AS-C1 will also feature an all new Neodymium magnet structure, a technology usually reserved for very expensive speakers," on top of some minor cosmetic changes. Do you guys feel this new addition of Neodymium will improve the AS-C1 speaker enough that I should wait until July before solving my current center channel problem.
