Bottom Line:   
I have tried about 50 different center speakers, Linn AV 5120 definitely the best center speaker. Close your eyes, among those over $1000 center speakers, you pick up the best of nature sound center speaker, that is Linn AV 5120. 10 out of 10 times, I pointed out Linn.

You will be happier if you have this one. It is not the money issue. It is the quality issue.

The Linn Av5120 is a great center speaker with a Natural tone. The 5120 makes a seamless match with
the Av5140 speakers. The 5120 has great Clarity without being Harsh.

Bottom Line:   
I am using this remarkable center channel in a mostly Linn AV51 system. The speaker has clarity and power. Everything sounds clean, clear and enveloping. Voices are reproduced with a naturalness that isn't often found.

This unit replaced a KEF Reference 100 center channel which was also clean sounding but lacked the ease and expansiveness of the Linn. By "expansiveness" I mean that this speaker throws a very wide and tall stage. As could be expected it blends seamlessly with 5140 main speakers and Uniks surrounds. I have them bi-wired with Linn K400 cable which does make a difference, typical "lamp cord" sucked the life out of the 5120.

For someone looking for a smaller Audio video setup, I would imagine that three 5103s plus small surrounds would offer a very involving alternative to using large floor standing speakers.

Cherry finish is beautiful!

Bottom Line:   
Truly one of the best center speakers I have ever heard. I first ran them passive for about a year, until I can afford Linn AV5105 power amp. For the last three years I have been running my AV5120 in active mode. Again incredible improvement. One thing that really draw me to Linn AV product line is the fact that you can upgrade as you go. Integration with Linn's AV5140 L/R is absolutely fantastic, exceptional, perfect. No wonder Stereophile Guide to Home Theater select as platinum award winner two years in a row.

I also auditioned Revel and Snell. Based on price and value I could not get pass Linn. Another choice would have been Revel but at 3x the price it was not worth it to me.
