I have my RC-LCR currently running with my 5.1's. I'll agree that if you want the best fit you should get the 5.2c That said i don't think the LCR sounds terrible with the 5.1's at all. Actually i quite like the front soundstage. I am using my 6.3's now with the LCR and it still sounds very good.
I also have the 5.2c but need help getting the LCR out of my stand. I need to take the tv and top glass shelf off to get it out.
I'm assuming because you have asked if they would work with the LCR that you have one and are looking for good mains to go with it. If you have the LCR there is no reason why you shouldn't get the RC-10's or any of the RC towers. If you already have the 5.1's then there's no reason to get the RC-LCR.
If you're deciding between the RC or Veritas it basically comes down to two things. (in my opinion)
Price and Aesthetics.
If you're more price sensitive go for the RC series.
If you want the "nicer" looking speakers then get the Veritas (preferably in Rosenut)
The difference between my RC10, RCLCR vs V5.1, V5.2C is not a night and day difference. I love both arrangements but to me the difference was as described above.
This is just my opinion on the products i actually have. You can't go wrong with either.
