Default Olympica Center Channel

Does anyone on this board have one in the HT system? If so, would love to here what you think of it.

I have it. Take my opinions with a grain of salt. I have a HT setup with the MX122, O3 (L&R), and O Center. My rear surround speakers or in ceiling Jamo.
I like it a lot. Voices sound natural. I have very little to compare it to.
I heard the SF Venere center and it had some natural and some unnatural sounding voices/dialog depending on the frequency of the voice I suppose. The venere isn't so bad, and I would have still gotten it, but I sprung extra for O3s and center.
I can also compare it to Jamo (old in ceiling speakers). Jamo sounds natural, but for some reason my ears fatigue quickly. It's nowhere near as clear as the Olympica center.

In my limited experience: The Olympica center sounds very clear and natural reproduction of human voice. My ears never get tired and I can watch a marathon of nearly an entire netflix series and my ears never fatigue.

I just wish I could compare it to all the other high end stuff like BW diamonds. But in all honesty when I heard SF for the first time, it was love at first listen.

I would but I took my set up down for repairs to my ceiling. Everything is pushed to the center and it isn't hooked up.
The center is concealed behind a speaker mesh portion of a 4 bay salamander cabinet. You can't see it anyway.
