Dang it! Just bought a new one for $499 and thought THAT was an awesome deal. $449 for refurb???

Of course, I don't know what condition these refurbs are in. But if they're close to new, then this is really slick.

And, yes, I only bought one. I already had two as my front L/R, and got the new one for a center. It BLOWS AWAY the JBL 520C "normal" center speaker. I don't yet have an acoustically transparent screen, but decided to try the 590 behind my regular 55" LCD TV. I ran Audyssey XT32 on my Denon X3400H receiver, so it could flatten the frequency response curve. Sounds fantastic! I know it will sound even better behind an acoustically transparent screen, but I'm shocked that it already sounds better than the 520C ever did, even with the 520C in a much more ideal location.
