    I got one this November and truly fascinated upon hearing the output. It is very clear and as powerful as its size. I replaced my 5 year-old Loft 20 center speaker with this 235c and it really makes a difference. Now, in my set up, I have JBL Studio 280, 235C and the 220 (as a standby virtual surround speaker when I use bi-amp set up). Still mulling to buy 260p subwoofer to complete the series

    + PROS: Crystal clear sound...with a touch of medium bass. It is good both in music and movies
