I fell down the Klipsch hole .....Ok, what started innocently enough has led to me now selling my Klipsch RC-62 II Reference Series Center (to offset the cost of my RC-64!) I only bought my 62 in July (2017) and it has less than 30 hours on it. I am the original purchaser/smoke-free home. I have the original box, manual, and grill to include for this sale. Local pickup in the DC/N. VA works. Otherwise, shipping at buyer's cost. $199 $159 Lots of trading under nhpm510 on A'gon, Emo, etc. boards. You all probably know this better than me, but the 62 features:Tiltable feet for placement above/below seated ear height Beautiful wood-grain vinyl cabinetSpecifications Frequency Response - 57Hz-24KHz +- 3dB Power Handling - 150W RMS / 600W Peak Sensitivity - 98dB @ 2.83V / 1m Impedance - 8 ohms compatible High Frequency Drivers - 1 (2.54cm) Titanium diaphragm compression driver mated to 90 x 60 square Tractrix Horn Low Frequency Drivers - Dual 6.5 (16.5cm) Cerametallic cone woofer Enclosure Type - Bass-reflex via dual front-firing ports Inputs - Single binding posts Mounting - Uptilt and Downtilt feet Dimensions (HxWxD) - 8 x 23.5 x 12.8 in.

Hello, I have a current setup of Marantz 5010 with Klipsch R-28F and RS-52 II. I am looking for which center I should buy for my setup. It's being used mostly for watching movies, but of course music from time to time as well. After some reading I was first thinking of going for the RC-62 II, but I am also considering RC-64 II. Which one will go best together with my setup while also thinking about the price? Should I consider any other center? Will the Marantz 5010 have any problems if I go for the RC-64 II with my setup?
I've been browsing this site quite a bit lately but need some specific advice/opinion on a center channel set up. I am helping my dad look into some upgrades/additions to the home theater system. He currently has the original La Scala's that are in perfect condition and sound great. Last year He got a new receiver, a Yamaha Aventage RX-A1060 to power the system. He has an old, middle of the road Kenwood 5.1 system (not sure of model) sitting around collecting dust so we took the center channel from this and hooked it up to his current system. It does the job and is better than not having a center channel at all, but as you can imagine, doesn't even begin to keep up with the La Scala's. To give you an idea of what it's being used for, this is setup is used 50% to watch sports, mainly football, about 30% to watch movies and about 20% to listen to music. I'm anticipating that more music will be played on this in the near future though. In the future, this system may or may not be expanded upon further. He may be adding rear reference speakers and a sub to go full 5.1, but right now we both feel that a pair of La Scala's along with a solid center channel will be more than sufficient for its current use. I understand that if money was not in the equation, we should be looking at some of the nicest center channel's that Klipsch offers to pair with the La Scala's. Unfortunately that's not in the plan/budget. We are looking at the RC-62 II center channel and the RP-250C. They are both on sale right now and are very similar in price. By looking at these two speakers, I understand that the system won't be hitting its full potential, but I think it will be a good compromise between upgrading from the old Kenwood and breaking the bank with a higher end model. The question is, Is there a substantial difference between the two? Is the RC-62 clearly better and a no-brainer in this situation, or will the difference be negligible? The reason this is even an issue is that the TV is in a built in entertainment center that isn't going anywhere, and within that the tv is on an oak riser to get it to eye level. The RC-62 is just a little bit too big to fit under this riser, while the RP250 will fit just fine. The price in this instance isn't a big deal, they're both in the same price range, but I see that the RC-62 is a good amount more expensive at regular price. If we went with the RC-62, the options are to put it on top of the entertainment center, (which is roughly 5' high so I'm not sure if the angle would make a difference when we're sitting just 10' in front of the tv on a couch), or we could actually use the RC-62 itself as a tv riser instead of trying to fit it under the oak riser we currently have (The question within a question, Is it ok to place the tv directly onto one of these center channel's and use it as a riser? Wasn't sure if you get vibration up into the TV or mess with the speaker at all if this was done.). Neither one is a deal breaker, but the RP-250C will fit in the current set up with any problems, so that is a major perk. Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to make sure there is a full understanding of the setup and what it's being used for, the fitment issues are kind of unique and are the basis for this whole issue.
