I recently bought a sony 32" hdtv and a pair of jbl e90 floorstanders and currently have a cheapie sony bookshelf as my center, so I've been eyeing the ec35 for quite some time. My plan was to wait until I paid of my tv then go ahead and get the center. My plan didn't take in effect that I occassionally have a few beverages of the alcoholic variety after work. So I drunkenly ended up paying $155 including shipping for a refurbished unit from harmanaudio. At least it's got the full manufacturers warranty. I don't mind getting the center channel, I just wished I would have waited until my tv was paid off. Seems like an OK deal, the cheapest I've seen is $180 shipped for a new ec35. Anyone else bought a speaker(s) off ebay while intoxicated?
