Center Channel Recommendations @$350

I currently have a pair of Sierra 1's and a SB12-NSD. I'm planning to pick-up a center channel (attempting to assemble a 5.1 HT set-up) and am interested in hearing some recommendations. My current budget is around $350.

All help is greatly appreciated.

If you can bump up your budget a little, the Sierra center would be your best option for a cohesive soundstage. CMT-340 would be your next best option.

Kef LS50,Q200C, Q100, SVS SB-2000, Denon AVR-X3400H, NAD 216, Panasonic 50" Plasma, Xbox One.
Bedroom: JBL Loft 50 , Loft 20, Bic F-12, Denon AVR-S710W, PS3, 32" Insigna LED.

If you add $100 to your budget you can get the Sierra 1 center, if not the CMT-340 SE Center would be your best bet.

Save up for the matching center. No point in purposely mismatching if you don't have to.

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.
