    Has anyone compared these two center channel speakers? Did you notice a big difference between the two?

    I am considering matching the CC800 S with the Electra 926 fronts and was wondering if this is a bad decison.

    I asked a JMlab dealer the exact same question. I wanted to pair a Cobalt CC800S with my Electra 906's simply because it was a lot cheaper to do so. He responded by saying the pairing would work, but it wouldn't sound that great since the timbre is different and the Cobalt speakers simply lack the dynamics of the Electras.

    I then decided to hold off on the center for a while and save up. When the time came, the dealer being the nice guy he was, sold me the CC901 for the same price as the CC900. [​IMG]

    I suggest that you save up for the Electra center. Your 926's are excellent speakers and you should definitely have a center that will keep up to them.
