I just got a new center channel and I am curious as to how you guys' prefer your center channel?

Do you think it is best to aim it directly at ear-level @ the primary listening position? Or slightly above ear level? How about slightly below? As of now, I have mine almost straight at ear-level.

I have read before that it is best to aim it AT ear level. As the center channel is the main dialogue speaker you want to be able to hear what people are saying.
Just my 2 cents.

Ear level directionality is so important to be locked dead center that they use microperfed screens to get it at commercial theaters. So, I like the dialogue from the center aimed directly at me. In installations where the cabinet is below the screen it is often aimed upward in that case.
