    Let me explain. :)

    I'm interested in using an Arc as a centre speaker, but they tend to come in pairs. I might be able to buy a single new unit, but thought it more cost effective to buy an ex-dem or 2nd hand pair. With enough shopping around, I think £1500-£1600 for a pair would be achievable.

    But the 2nd speaker wouldn't be much use to me, so I'm wondering if another member would be interested in buying a pair jointly, for their own centre speaker, or final speaker in a 6.1 set up

    What do you think?

    mmmm nice speakers, why not get the pair, keep the B&W centre and get rid of the 805s :D

    Already done :)

    The 805's have been sold, and a pair of WB Curves are on their way. For my room, I think a single Arc will do a great centre speaker job, and costs half of the proper WB Centre.

    I'm tempted to keep them both and use the extra Arc as a rear centre, but unfortunately current budget doesn't allow it.
