I'm sorry about the demise of your CC5. While I have never heard the Ascends, people whose ears I trust regard them highly.
I cannot imagine another center channel matching you 3.7i's as well a new Maggie center channel would. Your 3.7i's are just so very "unique" in their "voicing" and dispersion characteristics that I don't think any other speaker would mate seamlessly. The 3.7i's are just too good to be "boxed in" by a traditional cabinet transducer.
Just my opinion ....
