Strength:

THX spec. optimized for a realistic movie movie experience.

Weakness:

Very rare and hard to come by today.

They broke the mold with this speaker. I can't believe that this is no longer manufactured by Boston Acoustics. I demoed the upper end of Pardigm, Kiplsch, Energy, Polk and the latest Boston offerings. The VR14 THX simply blew them away for multi-channel sources. Clearly, the most robust acurate and neutral sounding center that I have ever owned. Awesome for HT sources. Very articulate, natural and revealing.

Strength:

Well built, uncolored sound

Weakness:

Size

This center channel has served me very well for a few years now. It has performed effortlessly with all types of movies. I would easily buy one again, although I'd like to check out the VR-12 more thoroughly.

The best center channel i have heard, perfectly matches the VR35 my only dislike is its huge and bulky. The timbre is perfectly matched with the VR35

This center channel is great for movies. It delivers very nice detail on special effects and clear dialogue. Before purchasing this speaker, I gave the vr-12 a try. The vr-12 is a great speaker, but I found the THX certified vr-14 to have more "real" sound and to be better built. I would recommend any of this two speakers to anyone who cares more about movie sound than music. The vr-12 runs for about $400 ($329 at amsound.com) and the vr-14 for $600 (got it for $440 at amsound.com). The vr-14 can be biwired, which I found to sound better than running single wires to it, and will handle up to 250 watts. It's huge at 25" width and 10 1/2" depth. Give it a try, it's worth it.

This center speaker is by far the best in the $500-$1,500 range, and after checking on some other brands such as: DYNAUDIO (#2 for my preference), Sonus Faber, Mirage, Paradigm, B&W etc. this 35lb. 'baby' kicked but!
Definitively I'll give 5stars+ for being capable of getting details that I could not hear in others above mentioned.

This center speaker is amazing. Gives you a sweet sound for both CD & HT. Is well balanced I'm impressed the way it manages vocal, fidelity and percussion instruments. It's pretty heavy but well built.
I am very happy with it. By far the best I've heard and the most complete!
