I sold my house with the audio/video equipment - JBL 4425's (LF/RF), 4412 (center) and smaller JBL, LB/RB surround (not sure what model) all driven with seperate amps (lots of power). Used an Audio Pro (not sure of the model but it was big and had two 8" subs) for HT use. I listened to music a lot and I liked the punch and clarity in the JBL's for loud music. Now I am moving to a much smaller house/media room and have been reading the threads. I am now using the NSP1II in the temporary rental house until the move. New room will be 15' X 22' (listening zone 15' X 15'). Surrounds would have to be on the floor or mounted above a window (about 6.5' up). Will use a Kenwood VR- 6070 and probably adding separate amp for LF/RF. Planning on an SVS or equivalent sub. So my question (finally): 1. To go with 3 pairs of s38's 2. S38's LR/RF/CF and N24's for LB/RB/CB 3. S38's LR/RF, S-Center and S26's LB/RB/CB Or, insert endless other options here... I would be interested in feedback from those that have used the S38 for a center and/or done a side-by-side comparison to the S-Center. I like the HT center vocals/dialogue in HT to be on the bright side rather than too flat. I am sure I left out some pertinent detail but looking forward to the comments. Thanks for the help. I am really enjoying this forum.
