Hi I wanna bounce a few ideas around you all. So I have the CM9 front speakers. so I decided to go separates, and decided on the CM line, mainly because the sound was good and it was in my price range. So I bought the CM9s for the fronts, bought an amp, a preamp and other bits n pieces. Now I have to move on to changing the center speaker, I could not do it all at once given the costs. So my next choice is get a new center, then a new sub, then rears. So here is my dilemma, i watch home theater and music 50:50 or maybe more into watching live music. I am thinking CMC2, or getting a different "higher end" B&W center. This is my dilemma, I know the CMC2 is the center speaker for the line, but would it be so wrong to get a higher spec B&W center speaker from the diamond line? Maybe a HTM-4 diamond or HTM-3 or HTM-2? I really just need your input and help, Would the CMC2 speaker sound better with the CM9 despite it being a lower spec center speaker in the B&W range? Would the HTM Diamond center just not sound right with the CM9's? Any advice good or bad appreciated, i hear that 70% of Home Theater goes via the center speaker and the vocals come via the center, so I really just want as best a center as I can get........is that the CM9 in my situation.....or can i look elsewhere??
