Centre Channel recommendations?

Hi all,

I have a bit of a dilemma...

I currently have Green Mountain Audio Europa's as my two main front speakers, a REL Strata sub and Kef KHT2000's for the other 3 channels.

Having read a lot about the importance of the centre channel for movies I've been looking at options to replace the Kef centre with something up to around the 400 quid mark, that is also reasonably discrete to look at. Green Mountain Audio centres are a no no, as they are way too big, ugly and expensive, so therefore matching speakers across the front is not possible (I wouldn't give up the Europa's for all the tea in China).

So, does anyone have a recommendation for a good quality centre channel that looks reasonably discrete and costs up to 400 quid?

Thanks in advance!

Actually, forget about the 'discrete' thing - what is the best dedicated centre speaker for that money?

I have a Kef XQ2C, it costs a bit more at £500 but boy does it sound good. A pic is attached

I had a look at the website for Green Mountain.
You're right, that's one ugly looking centre speaker.

BigGazza,
Where did you get the Europa's from by the way, and how much are they too?

Thanks,

Dan.

PMC DB1+ MC? Its small, costs £375 and I think It sounds fantastic (compared to the Mordaunt Short MS005c I had before certainly). Much more clarity, and a surprising amount of bass available for such a discrete cabinet.
