I have used 3 Maggies for years: MG1.6 at the moment. If your system is used for video the center would obviously need to be alongside the screen, but no big deal.

Fishcall...Interesting that you mention stands for Maggies. Most people think they are too tall already! I do not currently use stands, but I have experimented in the past, and I think stands are good. Actually, I prefer to suspend speakers in space by chains from the ceiling, but this is not usually possible.
When I went shopping for my current Maggies, the only other model I listened to was the 3.6. I liked the 1.6 just as well, and they are a lot cheaper, especially when you are buying three.
Over time I have gone to more and more powerful amps. I presently use three CarverPro ZR 1600 amps (600 watts/channel at 4 ohms) each driving a Maggie and its associated subwoofer. These amps cost only about $840, so the high power is very affordable.
If your Left and Right speakers are Maggies, the center should be also. My Maggie system is for music so I don't have to worry about blocking a video screen.
