As others have mentioned, the best center channel speaker to use with Magnepan mains is a Magnepan center channel. I used to use an Infinity IL 36c center channel speaker with my Maggie 1.6's and 1.7's. That Infinity was a substantial three way speaker with ceramic drivers, that worked very nicely. However, when I switched to a Magnepan CC3 center, the improvement was dramatic. The Magnepan center blends so much better with the Magnepan mains.

What happened to your CC5? That couldn't have been very old.

Boston Acoustics VR12, is an excellent budget center speaker, that I have used with 1.6 Maggies, and compared directly with Revel center speakers.

Used ones turn up regularly on Ebay for $80 - $250.
