5 Best Slim Center Channel Speakers
Best is a relative term in most instances, and this proves as no exception where evaluating the 5 best slim center channel speakers is concerned. However, if you consult most current and reputable sources, you’ll find that these components rank typically in the following order:
- Bose VCS-10. Though many speaker systems are comparable in cost and quality to this one the Bose Corporation(as usual) tops them all. So you would be well advised to choose this or a similar product made by this manufacturer…in that where speakers are concerned they are typically number one in all aspects.
- Athena ws-60. Many argue that this product is superior to the often-copied Bose system. But according to reputable sources this is a view distorted by the fact that the Athena ws-60’s higher visibility made apparent in retail shops such as Best Buy have made it more retail friendly for audiophiles who haven’t properly researched their purchase beforehand. However, this is still a fine product.
- Pioneer S-VSL6C.This speaker system is ranked at number three due to its cost-as-opposed-to-quality ratio. In other words, the sound it delivers won’t make it a leader compared to other higher-priced models, but its fidelity and durability are quite respectable and should therefore be seriously considered by lovers of quality sound who are on a tight budget.
- Infinity Products as a whole. Arguably, Infinity (by Harman) offers the largest variety of slim center channel speakers where both price and quality are concerned. However, their high-end products are the only ones with quality impressive enough to consider. (And the cost of these products typically proves quite prohibitive.)
- Klipsch WC24E Center Channel Icon Series. Again, what you get for your money has dictated the ranking where these center channel speakers are involved. They sound great, their visual appeal is fantastic and they represent an undeniable status symbol. But the lack of durability over time and the fact that these speakers are priced high enough to give you a nosebleed leaves them ranked no higher than number five.
Otherwise, weigh your options and make an informed decision while keeping in mind this (hopefully helpful) list of the 5 best slim center channel speakers.
