    Hi there, can anybody help me with a speaker matching question?

    At the moment I have B&w 603 fronts, 601 rears and an LCR6 center (all series 2). I am more than happy with the sound from them, however I`m moving to a new house and getting a flat TV to mount on the wall. Unfortunately it doesnt look like theres going to be space for the LCR6 :/

    So my question is: can anybody recomend a center speaker that would match my setup sonically and would fit in a much smaller space than the huge LCR6. Space is at a premium and even a cc6 would be too big :/ I dont really want to copmpromise on sound if possible as the LCR6 sounds great so I dont want to downgrade too much but at the same time it needs too fit without protruding 3 foot into the room :)

    Thanks

    Russ

    B&W 600? They're quite small and would work well with what you already have. :)

    Thanks for the reply :)

    Do you mean the 600ifs? or the DM600 S3 or the lcr600??

    How does it compare sonically with the lcr6?

    BTW I should have stated I dont mind buying new or secondhand so older speakers are an option.

    What are the 600ifs?

    I was referring to the DM600S3 which I've seen and heard within a shop background music environment but unfortunately I havn't heard them or the LCR models in an HT environment. The 600S3 shares many characteristics with your other speakers so should match very well despite not being a conventional centre speaker. :)

    Thanks, I hadn't come across the IFS model before - I would guess that the dimensions aren't so different to what you already have.

    I'm not sure if the 600S3 is available individually but I would be surprised if it was. You could sell the spare or use it as a 6th surround channel I suppose. :)
