I'm curious about which center would be recommended for the T2+. The center is responsible for so much that I would I would like to have the best speaker, but not if it is not the best matching. I'm about to place an order in the next week for the T2+ fronts, center?, t5 rears, and 650's for atmos. thanks,

Figuring I can sell the XXL center for 1/2 price, now I need to figure out if it's worth ~$900 to upgrade....

The SuperCenter XXL has been the "go to" top-line model for folks buying Triton Two+, Triton One and Triton Reference and is still available at this time. The SuperCenter XL is also a good match to the Triton Two+ if space or budget does not allow larger.

The SuperCenter Reference is our new top-line model and will sonically integrate beautifully with the T2+, T1, T1.R and T-Ref as well as the Invisa SPS if an in-wall center is not possible.

I agree the center is a critical piece of a HT system. Up until a bit ago I would have said the SC XXL is the best. And still believe it would be a great match with your T2+’s. It sounds as though some SCXXL’s may be on the market soon with folks trading up to the new SuperCenter Reference.

If you can wait a bit, you might want to see what XXL sales show up. If not, I guess I’d spring the extra $200 for the new SC Ref. All GEt speakers play together perfectly so matching is not an issue. I can tell you that dialog clarity is paramount, and each step up in the SuperCenter series moves the bar up. I do recommend a SuperCenter for your system. Your choice how far up the chain to go.

Happy listening! No wrong choices there.

If anyone is interested in upgrading their XXL to the new reference center, I’d be interested in purchasing your previously loved Center channel. ;)

Cheers,
