    Current system
    Mains B&W 640i's (4 driver towers)
    Centre B&W 602 S2 (not a purpose built centre)
    Surrounds B&W 602 S3's (minor upgrade from the 602 S2)
    Sub B&W 675
    Amp-Rotel RMB 1095 (5x200 into 8 ohms, 5X330 into 4 ohms)
    DSP/Receiver-Rotel RTC 965

    Looking to upgrade the centre channel. Anyone have any experience with B&W centres, HTM7, HTM3S, HTM4S, Nautilus HTM1, Nautilus HTM2.
    Thanks.

    I have the 603s3's paire w/lcr600 center.I dont think any of the htm centers would match your setup.Maybe the lcr6 or 60 cant remember the actual model but i'm close.FWIW you also have 3 different spkr models s2 and s3 with your setup.How does it sound?

    The system sounds fine. It is just if I listen to a normal CD played thru my Toshiba SD 9200 DVD player and use dolby prologic processing, there is a great deal of info that is fed thru the centre channel. I was just looking for something with a little more capability to reproduce this centre channel info.

    Go with the LCR600. They make two centres that match your setup, the LCR600 and the LCR60. By almost all accounts, the LCR600 is worth the extra cost over the LCR60. As mentioned above, the HTM cetres would not match the rest of your speakers.
