I use the LB-1 for a center channel because it has the single best voice reproduction I've heard. What better than a recording monitor to project accurate voice, right? I also like that they use Dynaudio drivers. I was contemplating buying the Dynaudio Contour 3.0 for my audio speakers, but then I saw the price. Bought the FB-1s instead. Brutally revealing speakers. Neutral as sin. The LB-1 as a center lacks a little bass, so you need a good sub. You should try one of your own in your home theater if its not too much trouble to move it. Make sure your source is good, though. I have not heard the TB2 for any extended period of time. I know that it is related to my FB-1, so I do recommend you try it. I do feel, though, that the LB-1 is better at voice reproduction. Have you auditioned any of their larger monitors? I power the FB-1s with a 4B-ST from Bryston. Works great. I know the 4B-ST has more juice in it, so I am contemplating upgrading my speakers.
