I've had a pair of RC-10s for a while now but haven't gotten around to buying a center channel yet. An RC-LCR goes for 280 right now, which as far as I can tell is a great price. Or, I could get another pair of RC-10s for 300 and either try to sell one OR keep the odd one and, eventually, get yet ANOTHER set of RC-10s for my 2nd setup that will eventually be going in the basement. I've thought about getting floorstanders or something else for that setup, but honestly I'm completely satisfied with the RC-10s and wouldn't mind having those in another setup (with subs of course), even if it's a little boring to have the same speakers in both.
Is there any strong recommendation one way or the other? It seems that the RC-LCR is supposed to be a great speaker, but it also seems that people tend to highly recommend getting the same thing for a center. Also, can I lay the RC-10 on its side? I can probably accommodate it vertically, but a side-laying speaker would make things nicer. Of course, a bookshelf laying on its side would look pretty odd so maybe that doesn't help.
