It's a non issue right now but I will have a tower as a center eventually.
Matching speakers up front was the goal but now I can't help wonder if the M100 wouldn't be the way to go.

Well, in order to take full advantage of the sonic advantages incurred by the extra cost, you'd probably have to place it ENTIRELY behind an acoustically-transparent screen OR have your screen above it, which would make the viewing pretty darn uncomfortable. How much overkill is enough?

The AT screen will be here before the tower.
Its not about overkill.
Running phantom center now and it actually works pretty good, better than the center I was using.
Thinking the deeper bass would be worthwhile.

"take full advantage of the sonic advantages"

Thats why I'm torn between them.
The M80 will be a substantial improvement but one would assume the difference between the two would be noteworthy and deffinetly worth considering.
