Hi Dave, I have Avalon Eidolon Visions and have also been searching for a good match to my speakers. A while back I contacted Avalon, and due to my space requirements, they recommended the NP Evolution Series center or possibly the Studio Pro. I have not heard either but given the price disparity and dissimilar drivers, I am reluctant to be a believer. No one in my area demos either of these so I would have to buy on faith. I dont buy on faith ! I have heard the Symbol Series center and was not thrilled. Right now I am using an Aerial CC3B. This is not a good match but with the environmental controls on the back, heavy dampening in my cabinet, and adjustments to the tone controls on my Anthem Preamp, it is listenable in the short term (but not recommended by me). I also looked into Lipinski Sound L-707 based on some threads that I have read. The folks at Lipinski did not think this would be a good match with Avalon and believes in an identical speaker match philosophy. So, I guess I am not a lot of help but want to keep the question alive. Hopefully someone out there has some good suggestions.
