    Hi!

    First of all, I just say a big hello to everybody. First por here, but I read this forum for a while.

    I need help to choose a correct center speaker for my A/V system. My B&W LCR60 does not match at all with my soliloquy set up (1.125-inch double-chambered silk dome). http://www.solspeak.com/
    It would be easy to order the soliloquy c3 center speaker, but the resealer for Portugal doesn't want to work with them and I need to get a valid alternative.
    A friend recomended me the Vienna Acoustics Maestro center speaker, but the problem is the price (£750)...

    What do you think? Which center speaker can I buy with same kind of construction than my soliloquy?

    Sorry for my bad english...

    Here is my A/V list:
    AV SYSTEM

    Onkyo DV-SP500 (DVD)
    Onkyo TX-SR701 (Receiver)
    Rotel RB-993 THX (power surround + center)
    Bryston PowerPac 120 x 2 (power front)

    Thomson 28VK45ES (TV)

    SPEAKERS

    Soliloquy 5.0 (front)
    Soliloquy 5.0 (surround)
    B&W LCR60 (center)
    REL Quake (subwoofer)

    CABLES

    Apogee Wide-Eye (IC digital DVD)
    DPA (Deltec) Black Sixteen WBT (front)
    Cable Talk 3.1 JMAudio (center speaker + surround speakers)
    DPA (Deltec) Black Slink WBT (front + conter speaker)
    Audioquest G-String (IC subwoofer)
    REL (Hi-Level)
    QED SCART AV41 RGB only (DVD -> TV)

    MAINS

    AudioDesign 6 way block
    AUDUSA Eupen (DVD)


    SUPPORTS / TWEAKS

    You are best off with a matching centre from the same range as your fronts. The Vienna Acoustics (or any other manufacturers centre) isn't going to improve on the B&W you have already.

    If you are having trouble with the Portugese distributer, why not try one in Spain or France?

    For now with this issue I prefer to stay in Portugal. I'll call this plan c. I already talk to distibuter and maybe he will try to make an order to a single speaker... It's not for sure.

    But what I need is a plan b = diferent brand, because i've got a feeling i'm not going to do it the distributer way.

    Just to inform you I ordered the Soliloquy C-3 from USA.
    The speaker is installed and everything is working fine.

    Due the speaker weight it will be placed in the bottom of the tv set.

    What a difference between the B&W and the soliloquy. Perfect integration with the other speakers. The bass is simply fantastic
