Boston Acoustics Boston Acoustics A 225C Speaker
Boston Acoustics' A series speakers are a well-known great value, and the 225C is the centerpiece of the setup. The design is low-key but classy and won't draw unnecessary attention to themselves. The sound is generally balanced, but doesn't have quite the same amount of bass as other centers in this review. It doesn't quite succeed in creating the same 3D realism that the more expensive sets from Infinity and Klipsch can, but it does add dimension to the sound and definitely gives dialogue and vocals extra body.
The whole A series setup does benefit from some burn in (~50-100 hours), so be sure to give the speakers some time to settle into their sound before fully judging their sound. Overall the 225C is a solid center channel with a low-key design that will please most listeners, and do justice to high-res music and DVD/BluRay soundtracks as well.
