Hi all,
Recently added a Paradigm CC290 v.5 center channel replacing a CC170 v.4.
A big improvement. Dialogue is dramatically improved. Much more clear and a much wider range of sound as well.
I had the 170 sitting atop the plasma on a shelf with two back "legs" supporting the rear of the shelf sitting on the credenza.
I put the 290 on the same shelf and realized this is a very bad idea. The 290 has to be at least twice the weight of the 170 and I was very worried about damaging the tv by having so much weight sitting on it.
I attached a shelf to the wall for the 290 and am much relieved hehehe. It also looks much better.
Here is a recent photo:

TV: Samsung 60KS8000, Rcvr: Marantz SR5011, Speakers: front/Paradigm Monitor 11v5, center/Paradigm CC-290, surround/Paradigm Atom, sub/Paradigm PDR-100, DVD: Samsung BD-J5700, Remote: Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home

I'd get those bookshelf speakers on some stands so that you can then place the stuff you have on top of them to the sides. I think it would look better, otherwise it looks good!

That's a good idea with the shelf above the TV.
