I'll just add that you should consider using either a single F1, or B1, or B2 as a center speaker instead of the C1; if they can be oriented properly in your setup, etc. I'm not saying that the C1 is really bad, it's just that SOME people prefer using a single bookshelf speaker (B1 or B2) over the C1. If you search the forum, you'll see the various opinions on this subject.
Although my ASC1 sounds very good and blends with my B1s better than I've heard in other setups I've used. I did try out the Athena point 5s for a while but they lacked the low midrange and bass of the B1 - C1 setup. And when doing tone adjustments with the DVE disc I could hear a very real difference between the center channel and the fronts. I returned the point 5s.
When I do a setup with the B1s and C1 the tone is quite equal. And my Setup needs the low profile of the C1. Had I more room I would really prefer using the same speaker all around. But, I'm pretty satisfied with the sound quality I'm getting now.
