Great Center Channel
I was doing a living room remodel that required me to get a wall mountable center channel speaker that was of relatively shallow depth. After doing some research I settled on the Encore TF. I am glad I did. The speaker looks great with the rest of my AV setup. More importantly, it sounds excellent. I would not hesitate recommending the TF.

I have been from the mid to the higher end of audio products through out the years. When I was looking for a set of on speakers to accomidate my master bedroom tv I had looked at many inwall, small bookselfs, even the dreaded home theatre in a box. All to achieve the sound I wanted. Then out of the corner of my eye low and behold. Whats this a speaker almost the exact same size of my tv. As well as sound amazing. I was impressed with the instore demo even though it was a less than ideal demo enviroment of a retail store. I was impressed none the less with the detail and umpf you could say that was produced for a smaller speaker. After getting home and franticaly unpacking my new found toys. I turned on my tele popped in a variety of concert bluerays to tinker and play with and then fell in love with the depth, range, and performance. Fantastic build boys and girls at ML Thanks for taking my money I would gladly do it again.

Most important speaker in a home theatre.
I am very pleased with the performance of the ML Encore TF as a center channel speaker. This speaker brings forth the staging area that is expected during a home theater performance, with true to life vocals and mid range response. I have my Encore matched with a pair of ML Vistas, which are in a different class of speaker. However factoring cost, it was much easier to make the budget for an additional center channel.
