Nice room, nice setup! Did you get the muffled sound figured out? As Moderator dude said, I would pull it all the way to the front of the cabinet to prevent early reflections off the shelf.

I've been playing the speakers all day while at work and with 30-40 hours of break in they are sounding nice. The center seems to still have a slight chesty / box sound compared to the old Snell. I might do an A/B comparison just for kicks. Regardless, the improvement in having matching speakers for the main 5 is noticeably more cohesive. I plan on watching a movie tonight and that should give me a better sense of how the center sounds compared to the TV shows I've been watching all week. Thanks for the help, I'll try pulling the center to the front edge of the cabinet as suggested.

A+B TV, the new Goldener dealer in Austin, called me two days ago to tell me they just got a SuperCenter Ref to audition. Went there yesterday, for the first time, to have a listen vs. the XXL in a room with just Goldenear speakers set up (impressive place in total, lots of gear!) .

I've always loved the XXL, still do, but the SuperCenter Ref definitely takes SQ a step further. Human voices , male or female, were just that much more natural, clear, rich. Instruments also. And bass is tighter for sure. A short listening comparison was enough to convince me, brought the SuperCenter Ref home with me.

Icing on the cake, the SC Ref and the Triton Ref's are sonic soulmates. SO sweet sounding together! Dialog in movies clearer than ever. I haven't played with crossovers, started out with the SC Ref at the same 80 HZ I had for the XXL.

I'll let the SuperCenter Ref break in a bit, and enjoy the ride!!!!

It's great to hear how the new center is noticeably better since I was on the fence when I bought mine. My new Anthem AVM 60 doesn't have a mono option like my old parasound C2 which made it easy to listen to the center by itself. I'm still using an Hz crossover as well at the moment but I'll be curious to see if you eventually change your settings. All of my speakers are improving as would be expected during the break in and I'm waiting to run the ARC adjustments until they are finished and the new Emotiva amp arrives. Hopefully this will further improve the already great sound. Enjoy your new center !
