If you can swing (and tolerate) a vertically-oriented M22 for the center, that would be an excellent choice.


I completely second what good sir Tom says on the center channel. This is so critical for a good movie watching experience. Definitely suggest going with a vertical center channel or go big on a horizontal one.

And the QS8's cannot be beat as surround speakers IMO.

Good luck!
