Center Channel speaker, which one?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i'm going to buy a Central channel speaker for my current 2-channels home theater made of a couple of RB-51 II.

 

I would like to read some experts' feedback about the choice as Central speaker of the "R-25C".

I've as AV amplifier for home theater the Yamaha RX-S601; its main characteristics are quoted here below:

What's your opinion about the R-25C for this scenario? ...or, in case, which one else would you suggest to adopt instead of that?

Are the RB-51 II appropriate for Yamaha...considering the parameters above if compared with the ones of speakers?

 

Thanks for your suggestion,

Mario

RP-250C at the minimum.  The aluminum tweeter will sound funny with the titanium's in the RB-51.  Plus the 25C is not timbre matched at all with the RB-51's. I'd also consider an RC-52, or 62 - but I'd highly recommend scratching the R-25C off the list.

I have a nice used RC52ii for sale if you are interested, PM me.

I would recommend this speaker to match the RBs (which I also own) even moreso than the RP250C.

The RP rocks but is a newer model that isn't an exact match for the RP....much easier to get a cheaper used matching center imo (whether it's mine or another one).

That RC52 is a nice one.
