I recently auditioned and decided to keep a pair of JBL Studio 590s. They are incredible towers and I'm in love with their sound. When I purchased them, I grabbed a JBL Studio 520c also, thinking I would need a matching center channel for that cohesive, timbre matched front sound stage. \n\nUnfortunately, the 520c sounds almost nothing like the 590s. The 590s create an effortless, widely dispersed sound that gives you the impression that you're watching a live show. The 520c gives you the impression that it's an undersized speaker struggling to keep up, similar to many built-in TV speakers. It doesn't sound at all like 590s (in any frequency range). I even gave it a 6 dB boost just to see if audyssey had messed up on auto-config. I still was not happy with it. Should it be THAT much different or might it be a defective speaker? Should I give up on it and start researching different center channels to go with my 590s? Thanks in advance!
