Summary: I have a Yamaha RX-V530 A/V receiver. I have had it for many years. It is great. No HDMI but I use optical lines for DVD/CD player and my smart TV. When you play music the center channel is not sent any input. With TV and movies I adjusted the center channel to "small" on my Yamaha RX-V530 and boosted it 2-3 DB. It seems to be working great. It's small so it can be placed beneath the TV or in my case right above it.
Good Quality Speaker for a Basic Home Theater Setup

Summary: This speaker was a good upgrade from the center speaker included with the three-speaker surround sound speaker package that I bought previously. It produces good, clear sound quality without distortion. I felt like the dialogue had a fuller sound, not "tinny" like with the other speaker. This is still a budget priced speaker, so don't expect miracles. However, I wasn't looking for an expensive upgrade, so I believe this speaker is good for the price.
Works as expected as a nice replacement for my larger center speaker

Summary: I have a Sony Muteki 7.2 Home Theater system, and the center speaker that came with it is HUGE. It served me well where I used to live but now I have moved to a smaller space and the existing center speaker was simply too big to fit comfortably in my Home Theater setup. I looked at many options for smaller or thinner center speakers, and it was Yamaha's reputation for have excellent build and sound quality that drew me to this particular item.
