Very pleased to hear you got the centre speaker of your choice.

You might be interested in another thread too.....where I am discussing with others the feasibility of having separate preamps for AV and Stereo, both connected seamlessly to my SCM150 Active ATCs. The AV preamp will then also supply a 3-channel power amp which will feed the 2 rear surround speakers and the centre speaker.

Currently I have separate setups:

1. My current Panasonic AV Receiver has integrated power amps feeding a 5.1 speaker setup (4 old but wonderful Philips bookshelf speakers with ribbon tweeters, plus a Linn centre speaker, plus a subwoofer.
2. My current stereo setup involves an SPL pre (with balanced outputs) which currently goes to some speakers which I am soon to get rid of.

What I am moving towards:

I am going to keep the SPL preamp for stereo duties, and the AV setup I am moving over to is a Naim AV2 and Naim NAP175 3 channel power amp. I am hoping to use a COMBINER to feed both preamp outputs into my ATC SCM150s.

Clearly I will turn OFF whichever setup I am not using, but this should work without me needing to 'switch the ATC input manually' with a switch box or by changing cables.

But I am also looking at some other possibilities. I put the same suggestion on the DIYAudio forum and am getting some alternative replies there, BUT...you guys know ATC, and I would be more confident with an answer on ATCForums!

They say if you can remember the 60's, you weren't really there. Now somehow I have reached 63...oh shit, it's 64 now....How and when did THAT happen?....there's a lesson there somewhere if only I could figure it out...
