Hi All,

I currently have the B&W DM601S3 for Front left/right and B&W M1's for center and rears and a PV1 subwoofer for 5.1 setup.

I want to replace my center speaker with either a used LCR60S3, HTM62(S1) or HTM61(S1).

Can't seem to find any LCR600 so that will be out.

Room size is: 4m X 3.3m

Which would be the best match or it won't matter?

Thanks,
K.

Pick the one that has the nearest cone size and sensitivity, although I doubt it will make a noticeable difference as the timbre will probably be as near as damn it.

My 601s3 mains are 88 sensitivity and the htm61 is 90 and the htm62 is 85

So the htm 61 s1 should be ok?

The 61 is recommended for medium to large rooms and the 62 for small rooms. Either really will partner the 601s, so really it comes down to room size and price.
 
There’s an LCR600 S3 on Gumtree in Brighton I think it was. I read this post the other day and just spotted it so thought I’d mention it to you.
