Hi. I'm thinking of getting an original CC3 used (obviously). Pricing seems to be in $400-500. Putting aside timbre matching fronts, is a used cc3 for $500 deal? I mean its an 18 year old speaker design, and the speaker itself is probably over 10 years old. All the reviews of the cc3 are glowing, but has speaker tech advanced enough such that new speakers at that price point, or a lightly higher price point, might be significantly better? I'm bouncing between the Horizon center for !$1000 (NrT version) and the used CC3 for ~$500. My main usage is TV, so I really want the best dialog possible. Amp is an outlaw M200.
Any advice on getting a used CC3 version something else in the under $1000 range is greatly appreciated.
