Just bought the 504c center channel, it’s gorgeous and sounds great with music, my only issue with the speaker is that the dialogue often sounds boxy or airy or thin especially at higher pitches of voices or when people are talking softly it sounds like an over exaggerated whisper on top of their voice, or even like the talker is wearing a surgical mask while talking it is not what I would call crisp. I upgraded from the JBL studio 520c which imaged great and dialogue was crisp. My L/R is a pair of RB 61 IIs that also sound fantastic. im disappointed spending the money on a speaker and it not sounding better or even up to par from what it’s replacing. My entry level sound bar sounds better with dialogue than this speaker and I’m convinced something is wrong. I have it hooked up to a Sony 1080 receiver and have tried several settings, has anyone else experienced this or found just the right settings to make this speaker shine? I don’t want to have to return such a beautiful speaker
I'm moving to new house and get to upgrade my home theater. I'm 73 and have some high frequency hearing loss (typically display the subtitles). We use our HT for 80% movies and 20% soft rock music. I want to start the new system with a very good center channel speaker for dialogue and then build a 5.2 system around that center channel. Listening area will be about 12 x 12 but open to around 20 x 20, hard floors. Existing 5.1 is Def Tech in smaller listening area and it does a fair job, I'm looking for upgrade plus handle the added volume space. Any recommendations on cc to start with ?
