    I currently have a PSB 200ci center speaker. I find it a little difficult to resolve some of the voices/speech during movies and have been thinking of getting either the Paradigm Ref Studio CC, the PSB 9c or the Acoustic Research AR2C.
    Does anyone have any suggestions.

    Robert. Youve been around enough to know that your center should match your mains. So I wont belabor the point. [​IMG]
    My favorite center speaker is the DefTech 2002 CLR. It's so good, it caused me to buy the set. You should run over to Magnolia and give it an audition.
    Since you mentioned the Paradigm, this speaker system has a loyal following. I'm sure it would work well for you.

    I have the AR4C which is the same as the AR2C with exception
    that the 2C has a 6.5" Downfiring "sub woofer" which is not
    a good idea with an RPTV or Direct View (But perfect for a
    FPTV setup)
    What can I say about AR's Hi-Res series that I haven't said
    before? You will not find a "better" speaker, Not PSB not
    Def Tech not B&W and not nOrh in this price range. The AR
    Hi-Res series is a direct competitor to all of the listed
    names (within the same price point) As with any speaker I
    would suggest you audition them in person if you can. The
    whole theory behind the AR2C and 4C is that thier array is
    the same exact layout and same exact drivers as thier Hi-Res
    Tower brethren for 100% matched Tonal Quality and Timbre.
    It will probably be a bad move for you to get any of the AR
    Hi-Res series Center Channels because then you will wind up
    replacing your Main L/R's with AR too [​IMG]
