Any recommendation for center and surrounds? The surrounds have to be mounted on side walls. How is the MMG-C with the MMGs?
Thanks in advance,
Don't take this the wrong way, but having that Insignia as a center with the MMGs should be a CRIME lol. Have you ever tried setting the center speaker to "off" on your Yamaha receiver and running movies in phantom mode? Thats what I did when I had MMGs and I was quite happy with it. Having a far lesser speaker as a center, particularly a non-Maggie, ought to be sticking out like a sore thumb!
I have a CC3 on the way soon from a fellow AVS'er, cause I want to see how it does with my 3.6s, but if it doesn't work out then I'll just go back to phantom. The size of the Maggie sound stage makes phantom mode a very attractive option unless you have others sitting off-axis. Give it a shot...you might like it!
As for the Maggie centers, I've heard neither, but the CC3 is widely considered a far superior speaker. That being said, they have an in-home trial on the MMG-C just as they do the MMGs, so you may just want to try it out for yourself
