Here's a challenge I'm hoping some folks here can help me solve. I've got an old pair of Allison CD6 fronts (cube speakers with woofer on top facing up). I'd put these up against speakers 3 and 4 times the cost. I love the sound and will not be changing them out. But as you may know, Roy Allison and Allison Acoustics are both gone from the speaker scene. I just bought an HDTV and would like to replace my NHT Super Center speaker with a newer slim center channel speaker because the NHT is 8" deep and I don't have room for it in front of my TV (used to sit it on top of my old console TV). Long explanation to ask a simple question: What's the best sounding slimline center speaker out there these days less than $400? I know conventional wisdom is to use the same brand center as your fronts, but that's not possible here and my NHT has worked perfectly with my Allisons for years in terms of timbre. I just need a more slim speaker to fit in front of the TV. Any suggestions?
