Summary: It works and seems to offer plenty of sound. However, it seems to lack some detail compared to A26 and other centre speakers I have experienced before. From centre speaker, you expect it to generate clear dialogue, however, A225C seems to be a little muddy. It is better than just using Front channel, but I cannot see significant improvement. May be having 3 A26 at front could have been a better option. Build quality is exceptional, and I really like the design.
Summary: I can hear the center speaker now without it being muddled in. I can finely hear what they are saying above the other channel special effect. I took a chance with this speaker and it's a winner in my studio. I love it!!!
Summary: If you've got the room for a slightly larger (than most size) center channel, this is the one. I switched my original dual center channels to my rear high speakers and put this in their place to complete my 7.1 installation and this center is a perfect compliment to my full size front channels (all Boston TS series, except for a pair of NHT subswoofers under the floor, all running off a 2013 Sony ES receiver).
