Infinity RS3s - center speaker recommendations

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a pair of Infinity RS 3s that I have always liked and would like to use them as mains for a second system. What center channel speakers would timbre match well with these? Thanks in advance for your opinions.

You can normally find used Infinity CC3's on Ebay fairly cheap. Thats what would match them exactly.

Bluer, thanks, any others? Surely there are Infinity owners out there who have suggestions.

Infinity's CC center speakers would do fine with the RS series. THe CC-1 CC-2 and CC-3 wouldgo fine with those, but the CC-3 is the best of the three. I myself i have a CC-1 and CC-2, and they're quite exeptional.

Looking at the picture it seems these are the same line of speakers I know with the model designations of:

Infinity Reference 2000.1
Infinity Reference 2000.2
Infinity Reference 2000.3
Infinity Reference 2000.4
Infinity Reference 2000.5

etc... I have the .5 model, very nice sounding speaker

I suggested the CC3 because thats what I run and got it off E-bay cheap. I used to run the CC2 and there was a noticable change to the CC3. I also have the RS5's towers, 4 RS1's for surrounds, 2 BU 120 subs. Then have 2 RS3's for a stereo in another room. You really cannot go wrong with that series.

Hey Bluer, how did this set up sound? I pretty much have the same stuff in my basement waiting for me to buy a house. I just picked up some RS5s of craigslist a CC3 off ebay (still waiting for it) I have had a set of RS3 I used for music and loved them. I also, picked up 5 RS1s off ebay to use as surrounds. I was planing on using the RS3s as mains but picked up the RS5s. I Think I need a new receiver to do 9.2 lol I have and Onkyo 706 that works great. Currently in my apartment I run 3x tss sat 1200 for fronts and center and 4x tss sat 800 and a little 10" polk sub. The 1200s I got off ebay for $20 each I went back to order 6 more but the over sold and gave me the 800s for $12 each and refunded me $8 each. I am very happy with them with movies but they are lacking for music. I am just excited and cant wait to buy a house to get a theater set up.

My main question would be, how is the timbre with the RS1s and others? I know this a very old post and you probably have new speakers but from the best of your memory. Thanks in advance.
