Cheaper than buying a new stand, and better than tolerating some POS little housewife-pleasing slimline center with 2" woofers = rent an electric circular saw (or jigsaw) from Home Depot. Cut the top shelf in two places as well as the two wood dividers in the middle to make enough space for you to fit an Emotiva C2 in the center, with the TV resting directly on it.
If you measure well there will be so little gap between the C2 and the cut-off top shelf that nobody will notice, especially not when the lights are off.
~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
