Default Olympica III and Center channel

So I am setting up a new system going with Mcintosh MX160 with MC452 and MC303 for 5.1 and 2 channel (MC452 driving SF OLYMPICA III). Questions are 1) does anyone on this board have this configuration? If so I'd love to connect. And 2) of you have olympica's for HT L/R what are you using for a center channel?

John

I own a C47 + MC302 and SF OLYMPICA II For my HT left and right. As HT amplifier I have a Pioneer LX-58. Way more humble set up that the one you own ( great by the way )



For my center channel I use a B&W series 6, and I do not advice you to go in that direction. As a matter of a fact I will change it for the proper Olympica center asap.



From my point of view you should go for the Olympica center right away!!!,

MX122, MC8207, and SF Left Right and Center.
The Olympica center is really nice. I don't have a lot to compare with but the center channel reproduces voices very natural. I can't compare it to much as it's my first nice setup. I was looking into SF venere and while I loved the speakers the venere center really sounded unnatural in my demos. (some actors sounded weird, some sound perfectly fine) The olympica center however sounds perfect to my ears. It also looks like it matches if you're matchy-matchy like me.
