Characteristics and sound properties

The CT CENTER 80 is a compact, enclosed 2-way system with well-balanced sound quality and complete magnetic shielding, as required for example if positioned close to a TV or PC. Inside the cabinet, we use magnetically shielded speakers, types SC 8 8 Ohm (8 cm full-range) and SC 5 8 Ohm (10 mm tweeter) and the complete speaker then meets the shielding requirements of the THX® regulations (3-Gaussian curve). The asymmetric design of the front baffle and of the crossover unit provide good omnidirectional sound distribution both vertically and horizontally. It is possible to install the speakers in the upright position, as is usual for multimedia systems, or lying down on top of a TV, as is usual with surround systems. This also provides for application in a subwoofersatellite system with the CT SUB 80. In terms of sound quality, the CT CENTER 80 produces clear-cut sound, well removed from the speakers, but with remarkably well-formed bass reproduction for a system of this size. In conjunction with the CT SUB 80 system and two CT EFFECT 80's, the CT CENTER 80 provides an excellent surround sound "starter" system, that will transport viewers right into the centre of the action with centrally located dialogues, background noises and dramatic soundeffects.

Extract from Hobby HiFi

"The Center 80 puts normal PC speakers to shame; the system makes listening to music on the PC a hi-fi experience.
These speakers sound fresh and lively, they reproduce voices very realistically and create remarkable spatial depth.
As a compact, desktop-based speaker, this is the one to go for."
