    I have the Denon AVR 3801 and Denon 5 disk dvd the speakers are JBL nd 310's for mains, pb12 sub, ncenter, and four n26's for my surround setup (DTS ES, Dolby EX)

    What I need to know is I'm thinking of getting the
    S Center II, to replace the Ncenter I have. BUT will the Scenter be timbre matched with the rest of my Northridge series?! I won't make the purchase unless it is, I have emailed JBL but haven't gotten a response.

    Thanks!!

    Northridge and Studio line ar not timbre matched. They use a tweeter that's a different size.

    The Northridge sounds a bit muffled and lacks the clarity that a Studio has IMO.

    I tried exactly what you're suggesting--the ND 310s with the S Center (though Mk I). The S is a bit brighter (which I prefer) so I ended up keeping the center and getting the S312s to go with it. Now I'm happy happy happy. [​IMG]
