    If you add shipping to $250... when Studio CC 370 costs $330...

    I never heard 330, but 370 is excellent.

    You'll want to match your mains.

    So, that means the SuperCenter or a single SuperZero or SuperOne.

    I used the superzeros for some time, they have alot going for them. Strongly recommend using superzero center in upright position for a few months before considering any changes. You can then do a meaningful eval. of any other

    centers based on your listening experience. I would not probably use a different brand center with a set up like this.

    Hey Thanks for the advice Larry! Why standing upright instead of sideways? any reason in particular?

    thanks again,

    Jim

    I believe the conventional wisdom is that
    you get more consistent sound from side to side of front row center. When speaker is on it's side the guys on one side have midrange arriving before tweeter and the guys on the other have the opposite effect.
    I bought in to this theory some time ago and have been setting up like this. Currently have a Sonus Faber set up with one of their
    concerto two ways sitting under my direct view screen tilted up. The super zeros are
    easy to place above a moniter tilted down
    so you are on axis with the face of the
    speaker.
