Hey everyone, very new to the audiophile world, but did,do some diligent research before buying my speakers. Currently, I have onkyo tx-nr709 powering my front speakers B&W683s (got them brand new for $375 each, couldn't pass it) and have them bi-amped through the receiver as to give them the required power. Now here's where I've made my fatal error. I bought a klipsch center channel BC it was another great deal and I didn't buy one of the hire end klipshes either, it's the C-10. Furthermore my connection that I was able to get these speakers from cant get me the hook up that she used to and I'm stuck b/w a rock and a hard place. Don't get me wrong it doesn't sound terrible together, but there is a noticeable difference in sound quality between the BW and the Klipsch. Before I bite the bullet and drop about the same cash on a center channel as I did for both floor speakers, I wanted to really do my research and I have read very mixed reviews about the 600 series center channel from BW.
Now after giving u my life story finally comes the questions. Does anyone have experience with the 600 series center and the CM series center from B&W? If so, and recommendations or reviews on them? Is it absolutely vital to have brand matching floors and center, or is it ok to have matching materials... ie the BW are Kevlar and my Klipsch is cone so the hi frequencies just sound sooo sooo much different. Thanks for the help, I appreciate your knowledge.
