    I wouldn't skimp on the centre, especially with Studios. I have the cc 370, with Mini Monitors (and a Denon 2802) and the setup is good, but the centre could be better. I would go with the 470. From what I've heard its even beefier and more capable than the 370, and it should match the Studios tonally as well.

    If you don't have a large room, the 470 should be sufficient. Do NOT get a Monitor line center, they are quite a bit different from the Studios, and will not blend well for a front stage. Monitors for surrounds would be OK.

    I use a CC470 with studio 40s which have the same driver array as the 60s. The CC470 is a remarkable center speaker that matches the 40s perfectly. I can't imagine someone not being happy with it's performance. I use studio 20s for surrounds and they work great. Word of caution on the CC470. Mine sounded dull at first because I had it on top of my TV, so the tweeter was much higher than it should've been. When I angled it down slightly, it really came to life.
