Just let me know.

FWIW I highly recommend using a third Q100 as the center - makes for a very cohesive front sound stage.

^^^^ +1

The goal is a seamless, single, front sound stage created by three speakers. In which case three identical speakers is your best bet :)

Repair vintage components in So Cal

Anyone have recommendations for shops in So Cal (LA or OC preferred) that repair older/vintage amps, receivers, etc?

(Have an older Hitachi AI-600 amp that I'd like to have looked at.)

Thanks!!
